How Much Does a Thigh Lift Cost?

Thigh lifts are a common surgical procedure designed to reshape the thigh area. But how much do they cost and what factors influence the price?

Thigh Lift Overview

A thigh lift, sometimes called a lower body lift, is a procedure carried out by Dr. Tenley Lawton that removes excess skin from the thighs. 

The surgery reverses the problem of skin laxity (loose skin) that often accompanies aging. Anyone with loose or hanging skin on their thighs can potentially benefit

Average Cost of a Thigh Lift 

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average price of a thigh lift is $5,171. However, this figure is not all-inclusive and does not include associated costs of surgery such as operating room rents, hospital fees and anesthesia costs. Thus, the total amount that the average patient pays for a procedure is more than this headline figure. 

Factors that Influence the Final Cost

Various factors influence how much you will actually pay, should you choose to get a thigh lift. 

Provider’s Expertise

For instance, providers with more experience usually charge higher fees. That’s because patients are often willing to pay a premium to get access to the best possible service. 

Location of Practice

The location of the practice can also impact fees. Costs associated with running cosmetic surgery clinics are not uniform across the country. Wage rates and rentals in large cities, for instance, are usually higher than they are in remote states and rural locations. Certain cities also have a higher cost of living, and therefore clinics in that area are likely to charge higher prices. 

Miscellaneous Surgical Expenses 

Finally, various miscellaneous surgical expenses contribute to the final price of surgery. Depending on the provider, these might include the cost of recovery garments, prescriptions for medications, separate surgeon’s fees, additional medical tests, fees for renting the operating room and anesthesia fees.
