Thigh Lift Surgery

(Liposuction of Thighs, Knees, and Lower Legs)

Due to Dr. med. Dr. med. Christina Irene Günter’s international activities and her cooperation with famous bariatric surgeons in Kuwait, one of her main areas of expertise in post-bariatric or body-shaping surgery, including surgery on arms and legs.

Most women would like to have trim, slim, long, and well-trained legs without varicose veins or cellulite. Unfortunately, there are many who are not so favored by their genes, and even with rigorous training and a healthy lifestyle, their desire remains unfulfilled. Weight and hormonal fluctuations, the loss of elasticity starting at the age of 25, or merely an unfavorable disposition stand in the way of this ideal. A so-called lipedema, a pathological accumulation off at, is even recognized as a disorder.  

Depending on your personal situation and the desired result, various treatment options are available.

In the case of smaller fat deposits, liposuction is usually the recommended method. If there is a pronounced excess of skin, a thigh lift, and possibly a lower leg lift, will be the option of choice. For lipedema, specific surgical techniques are employed, depending on their severity. Dr. med. Dr. med. Christina Irene Günter’s objective is always to achieve an optimal result with the least surgical trauma and the smallest possible, unobtrusive scars. 

Dr. med. Dr. med. Christina Irene Günter will be happy to help you realize your ideal of trim, attractive, and well-toned legs, and is available for personal consultations. Together, you will decide which treatment will be the most appropriate for you. 

 Detailed consultations are mandatory before surgical procedures. It is essential to talk about the motivation for this kind of surgery, to discuss whether the desired result can be achieved, and to speak about possible limitations. Other important topics are alternative treatments, as well as potential adverse side effects and possible risks. 

It goes without saying that your health is always given priority. Surgery that negatively affects your health or physical integrity is not recommended and should not be performed in the first place.


As with any surgical procedure, leg surgery may lead to bruising (hematoma), secondary bleeding, swelling, wound healing disorders, infections, and wound dehiscence. Temporary numbness of the treated area may also occur. After surgery, a certain tightness may be experienced, which is a natural part of the healing process, and may last for several weeks.

If you decide on a surgical procedure, it is essential that you are cared for professionally and personally during the entire process. 

I attach great importance to perceiving, advising, and treating you as an individual, with all the facets of your personality. My many years of experience, expertise, empathy, and communication are central pillars of my therapeutic success. Intensive and personal post-treatment care is as much a focus of my work as the preparation and the treatment itself. After all, a perfect result can only be achieved by working together as a team.
