A thigh lift (thighplasty) can remove skin and tissue from the upper, inner, and outer thigh areas to give you a smoother, more youthful look. With a thigh lift, you can achieve what spot training at the gym sometimes can’t fix due to genetics or other reasons. Plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Najera in Frisco, TX will re-contour the skin and tissue of the thighs to improve the muscle tone and smooth the skin of the thigh to improve the appearance of skin irregularities. Sometimes, thigh lifts can be combined with other cosmetic options, such as a lower body lift, which will address problem areas on the hips and buttocks, too.

"After having two children, I put on a lot of weight. After several months in the gym and dieting, I lost a lot of weight but was left with a lot of extra skin in my stomach area. For years I was self conscious and was unhappy with my body. I decided to go in to see Dr. Najera for a consultation for a lower body lift and BBL. From start to finish my experience was awesome. His staff are all AMAZING and knowledgeable. Dr. Najera made me feel very comfortable and at ease. He was patient and took the time to make sure I understood everything. I am now 13 weeks post-op from surgery. My results went above and beyond my expectations. This procedure was life changing for me, I look at my body in the mirror and hardly recognize myself. I've gained back my confidence with my new body and have nobody to thank but Dr. Najera. Dr. Najera and his team are hands down THE BEST!"- L.S. / Google / Dec 04, 2017
"Great Exilis results with Rathy - Following the recommendation of Dr. Najera, I purchased a package of six Exilis treatments for my face and neck. Honestly, I was extremely skeptical, yet a bit hopeful. What a surprise when after my first treatment with Rathy I saw instant results. My skin looked toned and plump. I just finished my fifth treatment and my skin is literally transformed. While the equipment itself is great,..."- L. / RealSelf / Nov 10, 2017

A thigh lift is the best choice for patients whose have loose or sagging skin caused by weight loss or aging. Patients should be at or near their goal weight and they should keep a stable weight after the procedure for best results. A thighplasty will tighten skin in the thigh area, but does not remove fat. Some patients may need a combined procedure that includes the surgical lift and removal of skin, as well as liposuction to remove unwanted pockets of fat.
What To Expect
Dr. Najera will choose an incision point based on the area of the thigh that is being treated, but usually an inconspicuous area in the groin is the starting point. First, the excess skin and tissue will be removed. Next, a lift is performed by tightening and smoothing the remaining tissue and muscle. To improve the overall appearance of the lower body, some patients may want to add a butt lift for more natural and even results. Once you have recovered, cardio and strength training will help maintain and enhance your newly shaped thighs.
Thighplasty is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes 2-3 hours. It is usually an outpatient procedure and the patient can leave the same day to complete their recovery at home. Swelling, bruising, and some pain are normal for 1-2 weeks after the surgery. Patients are usually allowed to begin limited movement after 2 weeks and more strenuous activity can be done 6-8 weeks after surgery. Final results are usually visible after 3 months and will be permanent if the patient’s weight remains stable. There will be scars from the incisions, but they will fade if the patient follows Dr. Najera’s scar care instructions.
A typical thigh lift costs $5,000 to $10,000. The total cost will be higher if other surgeries are performed at the same time as the thigh lift.
