What is a thigh lift?

While losing weight can sometimes feel like a battle, it is an impressive accomplishment for any individual. But people who achieve their ideal weight may require one additional step to complete their physical transformation. Based on the amount of time you were overweight and how much of that weight you lost, hanging skin may be a separate challenge if your skin was not able to shrink to the new shape and size of your body. The thighs are particularly troublesome for a lot of patients. Plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang offers surgical thigh lifts (known as thighplasty) at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, which removes extra skin on the inner and outer thighs to create a more contoured, tighter appearance. This popular surgery offers our Atlanta, GA patients natural-looking results by reducing loose skin on the thighs and completing their weight loss look.

What Are the Benefits of Thigh Lift Surgery?

A thigh lift procedure completed at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery by Dr. Mang is a great choice for Atlanta, GA area men and women who want to remove and tighten excess skin at or around the inner and outer thighs. Benefits of this surgery include:

  • Removing excess and loose skin
  • Reducing surplus fat
  • Tightening and toning the thighs
  • Improving the contour of the body
  • Decreasing the look of cellulite around the thighs and buttocks
  • Lessening the appearance of stretch marks
  • Cutting down on chafing and rubbing
  • Boosting confidence and self-image

Can I Get a Thigh Lift?

Thighplasty is a skin removal and tightening treatment that is used to improve the appearance of loose skin. Thigh lift surgery is considered a post-weight loss procedure for those who have lost 100 pounds or more. It is also helpful for older people who are fighting excess skin caused by natural aging, as well as women whose weight changed due to pregnancy and childbirth. If you have excess or wrinkly skin on your inner or outer upper thighs, this surgery can be an option. Please remember that if cellulite is the main issue, Dr. Mang will likely suggest different treatments that are designed to specifically reduce the look of cellulite.

How Does a Thigh Lift Work?

Your thigh lift surgery will be performed while you are under general anesthesia. A surgical incision will be placed near the top of your thigh in the natural crease where your thigh and torso meet. The incision usually extends along to the midway section of the thigh area, allowing enough room to perform liposuction (if needed) to remove stubborn pockets of fat, as well as to get rid of the loose skin at the top of the thigh area. From there, your skin will be stretched upward so it is taut, then secured with sutures. In specific cases, an additional incision may be made underneath the butt or in the outer thigh area, depending on the quantity of tissue being removed. Thigh lift surgery at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery corrects the whole thigh area for a tighter, shapelier, more contoured appearance.

What Can I Expect After My Thigh Lift?

You can expect your thigh lift to take between 2 – 3 hours, from start to finish. After the procedure is over, you will be monitored and then sent home for recovery. You can expect swelling, discomfort, and bruising during the first few days of recovery. Within a few days, you should expect to be up and walking around slowly, which is necessary for circulation and speedier healing. The overall recovery period usually takes about 6 – 8 weeks. The wound care instructions provided by Dr. Mang are vitally important as they will help your incision to heal well. Even though you will likely have some scarring, the new contour and shape of your legs will help you boost your self-confidence so you can flaunt your thighs with pride.

Thigh Lift FAQ

How much does thigh lift surgery cost?
The total cost of a thigh lift will be based on many fees, including those for the surgical facility, anesthesia, tests, and others. Once Dr. Mang has developed your personal thigh lift treatment plan in your consultation, he can then estimate your costs. Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery will help you find low-interest financing that will make your thighplasty easy to afford, so you are able to concentrate on selecting an experienced surgeon like Dr. Mang.

Will a thigh lift remove cellulite or stretch marks?
Thigh lift surgery is a great way to improve the contour and appearance of your legs. Since the procedure includes tightening the skin and removing stubborn fat pockets, it can improve the appearance of cellulite or other stretch marks on your thighs. If you're worried about stretch marks or cellulite, let Dr. Mang know in your consultation so he can personalize your surgical plan to match all of your goals.

How long will my results last?
If you follow a healthy lifestyle that includes a proper diet and regular exercise, you should maintain your thigh lift results for many years. Dr. Mang recommends you be at or near a healthy, stable weight before thigh lift surgery — so it is easy to keep your results. Pregnancy or significant weight changes following your thigh lift can compromise your results. During your consultation, Dr. Mang will discuss 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 custom lower body lift. Thighplasties are also a common part of a mommy makeover or after weight loss surgery. In your initial consultation, talk to Dr. Mang about all your concerns and goals so he can develop a treatment plan that gives you the results you want.

What about a nonsurgical thigh lift?
Although there are nonsurgical treatments for fat reduction and skin tightening, these are best for small improvements. A thighplasty is the best way to correct moderate to severe amounts of sagging skin and stubborn pockets of fat on your thighs. If you're considering nonsurgical treatments, ask Dr. Mang for more information during your initial consultation. He will explain the pros and cons of surgical and nonsurgical thigh treatment options, as well as his opinion on which would be the best fit for your needs.
