The legs and the bottom play a
major role in the erotic
appeal of both women and men.

You can strongly influence your erotic appeal with physical training and a healthy diet. However, the possibilities offered by plastic surgery can also help…

My new look:
Slim legs and a nicely shaped bottom

Fatty deposits on the outer sides of the thighs (“saddlebags”) are a complaint for many women.

The inner thighs and fat deposits often rub together on the insides of the knees. In addition, the bottom may be too fat or too flat in some areas.

These areas can be specifically modeled – by liposuction or by tightening of the tissue.


  • Avoid drugs that increase the tendency to bleed (e.g. acetylsalicylic acid-based drugs such as aspirin or ASS) starting 14 days before the operation.
  • Stop smoking two weeks before the operation! Smoking promotes circulatory problems and wound healing disorders.
  • If the operation is performed on an outpatient basis, please make arrangements for someone to pick you up from the hospital or practice and look after you at home.
  • Purchase cooling packs to use at home after the operation.
  • In addition, please obtain the recommended compression garments.

The procedure

In a thigh lift, the excess skin is removed along the inside of the thighs in a spindle shape. There are techniques in which the skin on the thigh is tightened through an incision next to the labia majora. We do not believe this is an ideal method. First of all, this provides only a minor tightening effect, and the scars are usually unsightly and large. In addition, this is a very delicate area for scars and they can be very apparent in certain situations.

Post-operative care

  • Lie and sleep on your back with your upper body elevated and keep the treated areas cooled.
  • Wear the compression garment for at least six weeks and ensure that it provides uniform, wrinkle-free compression.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Get up as soon as possible and walk without exerting yourself.
  • Avoid direct sunlight and the solarium for at least two months.
  • You should avoid strenuous activities and saunas for eight weeks after the operation.


In Germany, it is not permitted to publicly display before and after pictures of cosmetic surgery. Of course, you can view sample photos at our office during your consultation.
