Thigh Lift Beverly Hills

Thigh Lift Beverly Hills

Though not as common as the arm lift, a thigh lift procedure is similar to its upper extremity counterpart in terms of addressing extra tissue and remaining skin. Just as in the upper arm, the upper legs  can be extremely resistant to improvements with diet and exercise.

At Galanis Plastic Surgery Beverly Hills Dr. Charles Galanis can get the results you are looking for!


What is a Thigh Lift Surgery?

A thigh lift, or “thighplasty,” is a surgery designed for removing excess skin from the inner thigh. It is commonly performed on individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight and are left with loose skin and sagging skin on their inner thighs.

The surgical procedure may involve a scar running down the full length of the thigh when a substantial amount of skin is removed.


Who Is A Candidate for Thigh Lift Surgery

  • A Healthy, Non-smoking (>1 month) Patient with stable weight over a period of at least 6 months
  • A Patient displeased with excess skin and/or fat in the thighs (frequently significant weight loss patients)

Types of Thigh Lift

Medial thigh lift-

Medial or Inner thigh lifts are a popular procedure designed to target sagging skin on the inner thighs. The surgeon makes an incision along the natural crease of the body, typically in the groin area. This method removes excess skin and fat to create shapelier thighs, enhancing their appearance.

Mini thigh lift-

A mini thigh lift addresses sagging in the upper and inner thigh area through a small incision in the groin.

Spiral thigh lift-

A spiral thigh lift is a cosmetic procedure designed to reshape and tighten the thighs while redefining the contours of the buttocks by addressing buttock rolls and/or adding volume. This unique procedure provides 360-degree sculpting for comprehensive thigh enhancement.

Scarless thigh lift-

This cosmetic procedure employs non-surgical skin tightening techniques, such as Renuvion® or BodyTite, and/or laser liposuction to firm and tighten the thighs.


The procedure is performed on patients under IV/conscious sedation or general anesthesia. Depending on the patient’s anatomy, improvements to thighs can be made with either direct surgical excision or liposuction alone:



Thigh Lift Recovery

Outpatient surgery offers immediate results in cases of direct excision, while results from liposuction alone may take up to three months to fully appear. Pain levels can vary, with oral pain medication potentially needed for 4 to 7 days.

A compression garment will be placed during surgery and should be worn for at least 4 weeks. If drains are placed, they will be removed after one week, and all sutures are dissolvable. There are no restrictions on daily activity, and patients are encouraged to walk immediately.

Showering is permitted two days after surgery, and moderate exercise can begin after two weeks, with strenuous activity and heavy lifting restricted for six weeks. Patients may drive once they no longer require narcotic pain medication.

Time off work can be up to one week, depending on job demands. Post-surgery follow-ups will occur at 1 week, 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months as needed.

Thigh Lift Cost Beverly Hills

The cost of a thigh lift varies depending on several factors, including the complexity of the procedure, the surgeon’s experience, and the geographic location of the clinic.

Typically, this cost encompasses the surgeon’s fees, anesthesia fees, operating room costs, and any necessary medical tests or post-operative garments. Additional factors that may influence the overall expense include the type of thigh lift performed, such as a medial, mini, or spiral thigh lift, and any complementary procedures like liposuction.

It’s important for patients to have a detailed consultation with their surgeon to understand all the components of the cost and what to expect financially throughout the process.

Financing options or payment plans may also be available to help manage the expense.

Thigh Lift FAQS

Will I thigh lift scars after 1 year?

The timeline for scar fading varies based on individual factors like genetics and proper wound care. Typically, thigh lift scars begin to fade significantly within the first year and continue to improve over the following months. However, complete scar maturation can take up to 18 months or longer.

Can I get a thigh lift after weight loss?

A standard thigh lift reshapes and tones the upper leg. Surgeons often do standard thigh lifts on people who have just lost weight or after weight  loss surgery.

What does a thigh lift incision look like?

An inner thigh lift will result in a scar located near your groin crease. For a medial thigh lift, which involves removing more skin and tissue, the scar will start in your groin crease and extend vertically down your inner thigh to your knee.

How to sit after thigh lift?

You’ll need to position your body to keep the strain off the affected area and avoid splitting the incisions and thereby increasing healing time. Wondering how to sit after a thigh lift? The easiest thing is to lay down or recline for the first week.

What other procedures can you combine with a thigh lift?

You may opt to undergo multiple cosmetic procedures simultaneously with a thigh lift. It’s common for individuals to combine a thigh lift with a butt lift, tummy tuck or a lower body lift. Your plastic surgeon will advise if combining procedures is feasible to achieve your desired results.
