Saggy thighs are often the result of rapid weight loss. If you have excess skin around the inner thigh area that is resistant to diet and exercise, you may be considering a thigh lift. Also called a thighplasty, this procedure tightens and tones your thighs, improving your body contour and allowing you to wear more figure-hugging clothes.
Thigh lift procedure costs depend on the treatment plan decided on by you and your surgeon at Sthetix. While costs generally start from £6,800, this does not include additional fees or expenses you will incur as a result of your surgery.
What Factors into the Cost of a Thigh Lift?
The cost of the procedure is only one part of the total price of a thigh lift.
The most common contributing costs are:
- Anesthesia fees
- Hospital or facility costs
- Medical tests or labs
- Aftercare costs
- Surgeon’s fee
Aftercare fees involve post-surgical garments and an overnight hospital stay. Sthetix will provide a more accurate quote based on your specific surgical needs.
If you combine a thigh lift with liposuction, you can create a firm, more attractive upper leg shape by removing surplus fat. Combination procedures reduce recovery time and can cut repeat expenses (hospital fees, anesthesia fees) out entirely.

What Results Can I Expect?
Immediately after the procedure, you’ll notice your slimmer, more shapely thighs. As swelling subsides, your appearance will continue to improve. Results are long-lasting, but the natural aging process does not stop. Your skin will lose elasticity over time, and you may notice slight loosening.
What is Recovery Like?
Recovery time from a thigh lift will depend on your body’s individual healing process and the type of procedure. Whether your surgery is limited to a single localized area of the thigh or extended to include an entire area will greatly affect your recovery period.
It is recommended that you take at least 10-days off work to allow swelling and bruising to subside. Typically, the procedure itself isn’t particularly painful, but it’s possible you will experience some discomfort during recovery. This is usually due to the tight sensation of the skin.
Am I A Good Candidate?
Ideal candidates for a thigh lift have realistic expectations for what the surgery can accomplish. You should be an otherwise healthy, nonsmoker whose weight is relatively stable. Having a positive outlook, and leading a healthy lifestyle complete with proper nutrition and fitness, will contribute to the success of your procedure.
