■ Deep dissection is carried out using the Metzenbaum dissecting scissors by pulling the cutaneous/fatty flap caudally. Bleeding is stopped using bipolar or monopolar tweezers. If dissection is carried out in the correct layer, precisely above the thigh fascia, no vessel ligatures are required.
■ Deep dissection is taken as far as was drawn on the day before the operation (dissection area) and discussed with the patient.
Only in rare cases do we carry out a vertical incision in addition to the inguinal incision, since most patients when they are given detailed information about the operation have problems with the prospect of what is usually a visible scar. If, however, there is very loose skin as far down as the knee, this incision line cannot be avoided.
