THIGH LIFT OR THIGHPLASTY TAMPA, CLEARWATER, FL

WHAT IS A THIGH LIFT?

A thigh lift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure to lift, tighten skin and improve the appearance of the thighs due to excess skin which occur often after a massive weight loss, pregnancy or loss of fat or collagen due to aging.

HOW IS THIGH LIFT PERFORMED?

Every patient is different. It Depends on the amount of skin that need to be resected and which direction. The most common procedure performed is the medial thigh lift. All procedures are done with tumescent anesthesia where a tumescent fluid containing Lidocaine and epinephrine to constrict the vessels is injected into the area. Liposuction is then performed to contour irregularities then the area is marked again for maximum resection of skin. The skin is excised, and absorbable stitches is placed to minimize scarring. The procedure can be done under local anesthesia with IV sedation which makes recovery faster and minimal down time.

WHAT IS RECOVERY LIKE?

After the procedure, you will need to wear a compression garment for 2 weeks. There might be some swelling and soreness in the area, but the compression garment help keep the swelling down. We may insert a drain tube to collect the tumescent fluids and we only keep it for a few days. Sometimes we just leave small opening below for the fluids to exit out. If you have a drain tube, you will need to keep track of the fluid in the bulb and record it to give to the doctor on your follow up appointment.

You should be able to return to work within 7 to 10 days and resume physical activity after 4 to 6 weeks. While there are scars, they are mostly hidden in your body’s natural creases, and they will fade over time. It may take up to a year for the scar to fade. It is advisable to use some silicone sheets or scar gel for the scar to heal well.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS FOR THE THIGH LIFT?

Like any other surgical procedure, the risks include but not limited to bleeding, infection, bruising, wound dehiscence, asymmetry, numbness, unsightly scar, raised scar, keloids, hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation.

I have picked and utilized Dr. Solomon for many surgeries, as a 44 year old woman I wanted to enhance and fix some of the aging on my face and body. Dr. Solomon and his staff for the last several years have been great to work with and made me feel comfortable on all visits. He has the best bedside manners and the nurses care about your overall experience and aftercare. I highly recommend and will continue to go to his practice for all my plastic surgery and Botox needs.

By far the best experience I’ve had with a surgeon in his profession and office staff! The entire team at Solomon Cosmetic ROCKS! I started my journey with them back in September of 2020, after searching extensively for a great surgeon in my area to do a BBL. From day one Dr. Solomon and all his office staff were very inviting, warm, engaged, and helpful in explaining any and all questions and concerns I had about the procedure I was inquiring about.

Excellent staff and very honest doctor. Dr. Solomon does not lead the patient one way or the other, like a few other Doctors I have spoken with.i believe his reviews speak for this practice. I will definitely return.
