The thigh lift cost starts at $9,999.
While it can take 3-4 weeks to recover from a thigh lift, patients should wait approximately three months to resume normal activities, especially vigorous exercise.
A thigh lift procedure can take on average 3 hours.
As we age and fluctuate weight, the thighs tend to lose elasticity, creating droopy skin that is wiggly and hangs loosely. The thigh lift procedure removes the excess fat and skin, thereby allowing patients to achieve a slimmer, more toned look in the area around the upper legs. Above all, the procedure successfully makes the lower body firmer and more proportionate to the rest of the body.
Those in good health who suffer from excess or sagging skin on the thighs and upper legs are good candidates. Candidates also include those who suffer from stubborn cellulite on their thighs, or who have excess skin or have fatty deposits that do not respond to diet or exercise. All candidates should be in good health, have reasonable expectations, and be committed to keeping a healthy lifestyle post-surgery to maintain results.
This procedure will remove a significant amount of excess skin in the thighs, resulting in firmer, shapelier legs.
A thigh lift is not primarily a fat loss procedure. However, the surgeon can remove excess fatty deposits, eliminating the annoying ‘chub rub’ some may experience with larger thighs.
Many people with excess skin also have stretch marks. While thigh lifts will not eliminate them, tightening the skin minimizes their appearance.
Excess skin isn’t just aesthetically annoying. The skin folds can collect moisture, which can ultimately lead to skin irritation and infections. Removing the excess skin reduces the risk of disease.
Like all procedures, a thigh lift comes with the risk of complications. Dr. Bell has been performing thigh lift surgery for over 15 years. Significant complications are uncommon and, in the rare event they occur, are expertly managed.
Dr. Bell is one of Canada’s most reputable and experienced plastic surgeons, with over 25 years of experience in cosmetic plastic surgery of the face and body. He has performed over 3000 breast augments, liposuctions, tummy tucks, and body contouring procedures.
Dr. Bell uses the most innovative techniques to produce beautiful body contour results, emphasizing excellent outcomes, safety, comfort, and care. Unlike others in his field, he understands that beauty is not cookie-cutter but varies from patient to patient. No matter the procedure, he provides natural-looking results that last.
Sometimes, rigorous exercise and meticulous dieting just don’t do the trick. You lose the weight, only to end up thinner but with excess skin. Fortunately, a thigh lift exists to improve the proportions of the thighs, thereby producing results that would have been impossible to achieve through traditional methods.
Also known as a thighplasty, a thigh lift involves shaping the thighs by removing excess fat and skin, resulting in an appearance that is leaner and smoother. During the procedure, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons will strategically place an incision hidden in the groin crease. Before the incision is closed, the physicians will remove and tighten the excess skin. In doing so, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons will restore the shape of the thigh, remove excess skin, create a smooth contour, and reduce stretch marks.
For the cost of $8,999, patients will have the world-renowned expertise of the Toronto Plastic Surgeons at their disposal. In addition, it is worth noting that, following the procedure, patients will only need to wait 3-4 weeks before returning to their normal, daily activities. Best of all, if patients maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle, the results of the surgery will be permanent.
A thighplasty is intended for both men and women. Increasingly, men are electing to undergo thigh lift procedures to combat the effects of aging and improve the proportions of their thighs. For men who want their thighs to look and feel firmer, a thigh lift is an ideal solution.
The Toronto Plastic Surgeons utilize a minimally invasive thigh lift approach designed to reduce the risk of complications. Book a consultation today, and find out why the Toronto Plastic Surgeons is the place to go for all your thigh lift needs!

To begin, one of the Toronto Plastic Surgeons will perform an anterior mini-inner thigh lift, and Dr. Bell performs the mini-inner thighplasty and all the extended, medial, and lateral thigh lifts. These procedures address different problems:
Only lifts and tightens lax skin situated on the upper inner thigh.
Addresses the problems that come with excess skin and fat on the inner thigh. This specific procedure contours the leg from the groin to the knee.
This procedure removes excess fat and skin on the outer thigh. Both the outer thighs and buttocks are shaped.
EMSculpt, CoolSculpting, Sculpsure, and EvolveTite are non-invasive technologies that can permanently and non-invasively destroy fat, tighten skin, and tone muscle without the need for surgery.
Dr. Bell performs thigh lifts at The Toronto Plastic Surgeons SpaMedica Surgery center. Depending on the patient’s needs, an anesthesiologist may administer general anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
A concealed incision in the upper thigh’s inner part provides an opportunity to tighten and lift the skin of the upper leg, creating a sleek and slim profile. Depending on your personal needs, your thigh lift will be modified to address your specific problem area, in the outer, inner, or front part of the thigh.
The thigh lift surgeon uses strategic incision placement to minimize scarring. The skin is then removed and tightened, and the incision is closed.
Preparation for a thigh lift includes:
Typically, after two weeks of rest and recovery, most thigh lift patients can return to work and regular daily activity. More strenuous activity and exercise will have to be avoided for at least one month to ensure complete recovery. Patients will have to wait 4 to 6 months before returning to many strenuous fitness activities.
For proper maintenance, patients are advised to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet. Stay within a healthy weight range following the procedure to maintain the new contours. Exercise will help keep the thighs looking firm.
The surgeon will provide you with further instructions for your post-op.
Days 1-7: Most patients experience minimal pain alleviated with medication. Patients should rest as much as possible, avoiding leg movement.
Days 7-10: Patients can return to work.
Month 1: Bruising and swelling subside.
Month 6: Patients can return to all normal activities.
There is minimal pain throughout the procedure, as an anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia or intravenous sedation before a thigh lift. Any pain post-op can be managed with oral medications but the pain is usually only moderate in nature, as there is no cutting of muscle.
Many patients notice a modest reduction in cellulite after a thigh lift. However, cellulite may reappear after the site heals. Dr. Bell can combine a thigh lift with a cellulite reduction procedure.
If patients maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle, the results are long-lasting. It is usual for the skin to lose some elasticity, so some patients may experience slight sagging as they get older and a recurrence of thigh skin laxity. The EvolveTite and other non-invasive skin tightening procedures are used to maintain and protect your investment.
