How much does a thigh lift cost?

Do you have flabby thighs that you would like to firm and tighten?  A thigh lift reshapes and contours the thighs, so they appear smoother and tighter.  But how much does a thigh lift cost?

What is a thigh lift?

A thigh lift tones and reshapes the thighs, by removing excess skin and fat, so it is the ideal way to improve the appearance of flabby thighs.

How much does a thigh lift cost

The average cost of a thigh lift is $5,317, based on statistics published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.  However, there are several factors that can influence the final cost of surgery including the extent of the procedure, the surgeon’s fee, and surgery-related fees.  

The extent of the procedure

The amount of excess skin and fat that needs to be removed during a thigh lift, will determine the incision technique needed, and the extent of surgery.  Also, there are times when a thigh lift may be paired with liposuction, to achieve the best cosmetic results.  Thigh lift surgery is generally more expensive when complex surgical techniques are required.

Surgeon’s fee

A highly trained, experienced board-certified plastic surgeon will likely charge more to perform a thigh lift. The geographic location of the practice will also impact the cost because surgeons located in main metropolitan areas typically have higher overheads.

Surgery related fees

The average cost quoted for thigh lift surgery usually does not include the cost of anesthesia, medical tests, and post-surgery garments, as well as the surgical facility fee.
