What is a thigh lift?

Losing weight is an impressive accomplishment for any person. Sometimes, people who achieve their ideal weight need an additional step to finish transforming their bodies. Depending on how long you were overweight and how much weight you lost, excess skin can become a concern. In particular, the thighs are a common problem for many patients. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang offers thigh lift surgery, which removes extra skin on the inner and outer thighs. This creates a more contoured and tighter appearance. To learn more about thighplasty, we invite you to call and schedule an appointment.

Is A Thigh Lift For You?

Thighplasty is a skin removal procedure that treats sagging skin and contours the thighs. Usually, we perform thigh lift surgery after a bariatric procedure. The procedure works well for patients who have lost 100 pounds or more. A thigh lift can also help older patients and women whose body weight changed during pregnancy. If you have hanging, loose, or wrinkly skin on your inner or outer thighs, a thigh lift can help you live more comfortably. Also, if cellulite is a bigger problem, Dr. Mang can suggest other procedures that can reduce the appearance.

How does a thigh lift work?

During thigh lift surgery, we will start by administering general anesthesia. Next, an incision is placed near the top of the thigh within the natural fold of the groin and buttocks. This incision continues along the midway point of the thigh. If necessary, this allows enough space to use liposuction and excise any excess skin at the top of your thigh. After removing excess skin, we will tighten the remaining skin and secure it with sutures. Sometimes, patients need an additional incision. At the time of your consultation, Dr. Mang will determine what incision techniques work best for you. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, thigh lift surgery treats the entire thigh area for a tighter, shapelier, and more contoured appearance.

What can I Expect after a thigh lift?

A thigh lift takes around 2 – 3 hours to perform. Once your procedure is complete, we will take you back to the recovery room for monitoring. At first, you will have some bruising, discomfort, and swelling. Within a few days, most patients can move and slowly walk, which encourages blood circulation and healthy healing. Generally, your recovery takes around 6 – 8 weeks. Before sending you home, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions to help the incisions properly heal. Even though you have some scarring, the improved shape and contour of your thighs can increase your confidence.

Thigh Lift FAQ

Will a thigh lift remove cellulite or stretch marks?
A thigh lift is the best choice to achieve nicely contoured and slimmer legs. Since a thigh lift includes skin tightening and addressing excessive fat deposits, it can improve the visibility of cellulite and skin irregularities (like stretch marks) on your upper legs. If you are concerned about cellulite or stretch marks, let Dr. Mang know in your consultation so he can adjust your surgical plan to match all of your goals.

How long will my results last?
After your surgery, if you stay healthy with regular exercise and a balanced diet, you should maintain the results of your thigh lift for many years. Dr. Mang recommends you be at or near a stable weight before surgery — so it's easy to maintain your results. Pregnancy or significant weight changes following your thigh lift can alter your appearance. During your consultation, Dr. Mang will give you advice on what will make your thigh lift results last longer.

Can I combine a thigh lift with other surgeries?
Some patients pair a thigh lift with a butt lift or tummy tuck to create a lower body lift. Thighplasties are also a common part of after weight loss surgery or a mommy makeover. In your consultation, talk to Dr. Mang about your concerns and goals so he can develop a comprehensive surgical plan that gives you the best results.

How long is the recovery period after a thigh lift?
Recovery times can vary, but typically, patients may need several weeks to recover. During the first few days, rest is crucial. Most individuals return to non-strenuous work within 2-3 weeks. Complete healing and fading of scars may take several months.

What are the risks associated with a thigh lift?
Like any surgical procedure, thigh lifts have risks such as infection, scarring, and uneven contours. However, choosing a qualified surgeon such as Dr. Mang can minimize these risks. Our Tampa, FL patients are advised to follow all aftercare instructions to ensure the best results.

Will I lose weight after a thigh lift?
A thigh lift is not primarily a weight loss procedure; it's designed to contour and reshape the thighs. Patients may experience a slight reduction in weight due to the removal of excess skin and fat, but the main goal is to achieve a more toned and proportionate appearance of the thighs.
