The effect is immediate and permanent.
Intervention is performed under general anaesthesia and usually takes 2–3 hours. The patient must consult the physician and undergo a prior pre-operative examination.
The surgeon makes an incision in the groin, and if necessary, continues with an additional incision along the inner thigh which results in a T-shaped scar. They remove any excess skin and hypodermis, lifting the sagging skin up. If required, the intervention can be combination with liposuction. Finally, the wound is stitched with dissolvable stitches and sterile bandages are applied. The day after the surgery, the physician removes drains and provides compression underwear.
