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.
"I had breast surgery done from Dr. Mang 17 years ago, the results were amazing. I had minimal scarring. He and his staff followed up with me amazingly. Fast forward almost 20 years later, due to weight loss, weight gain, 2 more children and poor skin due to heritertly, I went back to Dr. Mang for another surgery. Again the results were perfect. In addition to excellent work, he checks on you PERSONALLY after your surgery. He is a talented surgeon. I again received exactly what I was looking for. Some people expect plastic surgeons to make them look like the housewives of Beverly Hills.. this isn’t going to happen ladies..However a good Dr. WILL create the best look and fit for you and what you have to work with."- A.L. / Google / Jun 09, 2020
"I always wanted to try out Botox, just a chicken committing because I don’t like needles; A few of my coworkers went with me to ease the idea of doing it alone.It’s important to note, they used clean and individual packages of needles for each of us and numbing cream with betadine on the spots I wanted to be injected with the filler. The process wasn’t bad at all, especially since they were doing a $9/unit special accompanied by a glass of Rose - how can I say no to that? When Dr. Mang injected my forehead and pulled out the needle, you can hear a small crunch; this is normal and Dr. Mang explained if you don’t hear this sound, it is not being done correctly. I wouldn’t have done this or brought other people unless it was anyone else than fellow Yelper, Anna M., because I trust her so much.Thank you for the opportunity - even though I got 10 units vs. 50 units of botox compared to a coworker - I feel that it was effective to iron out my wrinkles, even though I know I have minimal amount heading into my 30s. This was my X-mas gift to myself!I saw firsthand the difference for people who do have a lot of wrinkles & are young, so IMO botox is such an amazing product to help smooth out wrinkles."- J.X. / Google / Mar 01, 2020
"Dr. Brandon Mang has recently relocated his Pinellas Park office to South Tampa on Gandy Boulevard. I normally receive Botox injections from a nurse practitioner at a nearby practice. The people who have injected my Botox in the past have been quick in their process...almost too quick. Dr. Mang takes the time to discuss your areas of concern, applies numbing cream, and then marks these areas with Betadine to ensure no infection and proper placement. I chose Dr. Mang because he is an expert in his field. He and his staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Mang’s genuine bedside manner with his patients is truly one of the best I have ever encountered. He takes the time to answer all your questions and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the procedures you are inquiring about. I highly recommend Dr. Brandon Mang for all your plastic and cosmetic surgery needs."- A.M. / Google / Feb 20, 2020

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.
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 to Expect
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.
