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.

Surgical Technique

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.
