Thigh Lift

Most women would enjoy wearing shorts and skirts in warm weather, and everyone wants to look good in their swimsuit.  When the outer and inner thigh becomes flabby and loose – due to hereditary, weight loss or aging – wearing these clothes becomes difficult.

Often, the unsightly pockets of fat on your thighs cannot be corrected by diet and exercise alone. Especially for those who have lost a significant amount of weight, the skin can sag, ripple and fold in ways that cannot be remedied except with surgery. A thigh lift procedure is a great way to reduce your unwanted bumps and bulges and create smooth, attractive contours.

What does the Procedure Involve?

Thigh lifts are performed under general anesthesia, on an outpatient basis. During a thigh lift procedure, your surgeon will remove excess fat, tighten the skin and re-contour the upper leg. There are several areas that can be addressed. Some patients may require a posterior thigh lift, which will address the back of the thighs when skin or fat has become excessive. Others may require an outer thigh lift if they have too much tissue in that area. In addition, an inner thigh lift is necessary to remove excess skin or fat that is directly beneath the pubic area. Incisions are strategically placed to conceal any scarring that might occur.  The details of your surgical plan will depend upon your body and your body contouring goals.

Thigh Lifts are often combined with Liposuction, Tummy Tucks, and Body Lift procedures.

Where will the procedure take place?

Most thigh lift patients elect to have their procedures performed in our on-site surgery center. Our 5-star facility, the Clarkview Surgical Center, was designed with the safety, comfort, privacy, and convenience of our patients in mind. It features state-of-the-art technology and meets the most rigorous safety standards. We are proud to be one of the few outpatient surgical facilities to earn AAAHC accreditation, as well as certifications from Medicare and the state of Maryland. Because safety is our first concern, all surgical procedures are performed with board-certified anesthesiologists and registered nurses.

What does a Thigh Lift Cost?

We understand that having a general range of procedure prices can be helpful, so we are happy to provide estimated price ranges for the plastic surgery procedures we perform.  However, it is important to note that these price ranges are general estimates only.

The best way to learn about plastic surgery pricing is to consult directly with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. During your consultation, your surgeon will listen carefully to your concerns and goals and assess your medical history, lifestyle, and anatomy. Together, you and your surgeon will review all your treatment options and develop a personalized plan that meets all your needs. Only then are we able to provide an accurate price quote, which will include:

  • All visits before and after the procedure
  • Operating Room time and supplies
  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Anesthesia fees
  • All medical devices, implants, and support materials

Price Range for thigh lift procedures: $7,000 – $10,000
