In leg lift operations, an incision is generally required. An incision is made from the leg area to the back, and all excess fat and skin are removed.
In this process, materials called drains are used. The purpose of this is to prevent the accumulation of excess blood and fluid in the body. It takes about two weeks to remove the stitches, as in the arms.
Although the patient returns to his normal life after a week, he should not be active for at least two weeks. Since there are moist areas between the legs in general, dressing should be done every other day in order not to delay the healing.2
