Contact Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa and come in for a complimentary evaluation and learn more about how a thigh lift can help you.


What to Expect During Thigh Lift Consultation?

During your consultation, Dr. Bachilo will listen to your concerns. She will obtain your medical history and perform an exam to evaluate your skin and excess tissue of the thighs. For the best surgical results, you should be at a stable weight. Dr. Bachilo will provide you with information about a thigh lift procedure and discuss what you can expect.

Dr. Bachilo may suggest some adjunct procedures to further augment your results such as liposuction of the thighs. Thighplasty may also be safely combined with a number of other cosmetic procedures.

Once you determine that you want to proceed with surgery, our staff will provide you with detailed pre-operative instructions. At Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we are committed to patient safety and delivering the best surgical result, and therefore we emphasize the importance of following all pre-operative instructions which include refraining from taking aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medications that increase bleeding prior to the surgery and avoiding smoking for any elective procedure.


How Is Thighplasty Procedure Done?

Thigh lift surgery is performed in an outpatient surgery center or the hospital under general anesthesia and requires 2 to 4 hours.  Different techniques exist to perform a thigh lift.

For a minimal lift, the incision can be made in the groin crease and only a small amount of vertical excess skin is removed. For a more significant lift and larger skin removal, the incision is started in the groin and carried down towards the knee in the medial thigh. This incision allows for a more contoured thigh and more skin excision, but as a result, there is a longer scar. Occasionally, for even more skin removal, a patient may be a candidate for an outer thigh direct excision of excess tissue. Prior to your procedure, Dr. Bachilo will determine which incision will be most appropriate for your individual need and she will discuss this with you in detail.  After excess skin and fat in the thighs are removed, the incisions are closed with absorbable sutures. To prevent fluid from accumulating in the legs, small drainage tubes may be used in each tight. These tubes will be removed during your post-operative visit.


What Is Thigh Lift Recovery Like?

Pain, swelling and bruising is expected after the procedure. Pain is well controlled with oral pain medications and you will be encouraged to walk shortly after your procedure. You will have compression bandages or a compression garment to wear on your legs for several weeks after your procedure.  You will receive detailed post-surgical care instructions which will include instructions on how to care for your drain tubes. You should walk right after your procedure, but no strenuous activities or heavy lifting should be done for at least 2 weeks.  After about 2 weeks most patients are able to return to work, and at 6 weeks our patients are able to resume all of their normal activities including exercise.


What Kind of Result Can I Expect From Thighplasty?

Immediately after surgery, you will notice an improvement in the thigh contour. Final results will be visible after all of the bruising and swelling resolves.  After the incisions are healed, scars continue to change and fade over a year after surgery. You will receive instructions on scar management and may begin that right after everything heals. It is very important to protect young scars from sun exposure as the sun may make scars permanently dark. Thigh lift patients are generally very pleased with their results and are able to enjoy new wardrobe options to show off their new figure!

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I consider a Thigh Lift?

If your thighs rub together at the top and cause chafing and discomfort, if you have bags of fat sagging around your kneecap, if your thighs look droopy because you’ve lost weight, you should consider a Thigh Lift or Thighplasty. Thigh Lift surgery can rejuvenate your appearance by toning and tightening the skin and muscle tissue in your thighs to create a more attractive contour.

How can a Thigh Lift rejuvenate my appearance?

Thigh Lift surgery tightens and tones muscles and skin in the thighs to remove unsightly bags of fat or sagging skin.  Thighplasty can transform droopy, sagging thighs into thighs that are toned, contoured, and shapely, rejuvenating the appearance of the entire leg.

Who is a good candidate for a Thigh Lift?

While any healthy adult who wants to remove unwanted fat and sagging skin from the thighs may be a good candidate, the procedure is most suitable for individuals who maintain a stable weight, are generally fit, maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen, and are not in the process of losing weight.

Where can I go for the best Thigh Lift in Houston?

Among Houston’s best plastic surgeons, Dr. Olga Bachilo is one of the area’s most revered and recommended cosmetic specialists.  With years of experience and a caring bedside manner, Dr. Bachilo is one of Houston’s best. Dr. Bachilo is the resident surgeon and director at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, serving residents of Bellaire, Memorial, Pearland, Sugar Land, Katy, and the greater Houston area.

How much does Thigh Lift surgery cost in Houston?

Thigh Lift surgery may vary widely in cost due to factors such as the extent of work required, and whether or not Liposuction is used in conjunction with surgery.  Typically, the cost can range anywhere from $4,000 to $12,000, depending on a series of factors, as well as whether you opt to have multiple surgeries done at once, which can save money on the cost of each procedure.

Will a Thigh Lift give me a “thigh gap”?

Possibly.  A Thigh Lift can tighten either the inner or outer thigh, or both areas. When performed on the inner thigh, the Thigh Lip will produce the separation between the top of the thighs that is commonly referred to as a “thigh gap.”

Can I get a Thigh Lift while I’m losing weight?

No. It’s best to hold off on a contouring procedure until you have attained your ideal weight or are very close to it, as future weight loss could alter and affect the outcome of your Thigh Lift surgery.

What type of anesthesia is used during a Thigh Lift procedure?

The Thigh Lift is performed under general anesthesia.

Will there be visible scars after a Thigh Lift?

The scars from a Thigh Lift surgery are camouflaged along the inner thigh and the crease of the buttock, to be hidden when you stand with your legs facing forward.  The incisions used in cosmetic surgery are very fine, hairline incisions that leave very fine, barely visible scars. Further, over time, the scars will heal and fade away, particularly if you care properly for them.

Can I combine a Thigh Lift with another plastic surgery procedure?

Yes, you may choose to combine a Thigh Lift with other procedures in order to save time and money, reduce your exposure to anesthesia, and recover from multiple procedures at one time.

How long do the results of a Thigh Lift last?

While surgical procedures typically produce results that are long-term, future changes in your body such as weight fluctuations could alter the outcome of your procedure and you may wish to consider a follow-up procedure at that time.

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor
Megan Shea

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor and has a very friendly and kind personality. I had been to many plastic surgeons and none made me feel comfortable and respected the way she did when talking with her. I will continue to see her no matter where I am in the U.S. - Google

Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner.

Dr. Bachilo performed this procedure on me in March 2019. I am a 50-year-old female, 5‘4“, 170 pounds. Dr. Bachilo removed 10 L of fat, which is a very aggressive surgery. I felt comfortable with her, and asked her to push the limits, which she did. I spent the night in the hospital as a precaution as my blood pressure dropped and needed to be stabilized and monitored. Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner. She checked on me several times during the day and night before I left. I am now 8 days post-op and pleased with the results. - RealSelf

Dr. Bachilo has now completed an arm lift and thigh lift for me. She has been wonderful with me through both procedures and her work is remarkable.

Elvira V.

I am so thankful we found Olga! She has changed my life! I've gotten breast augmentation with Olga, I went to 3 different surgeons for a consultation and the moment I met Olga my mom and I both knew she was the one. She was so personal, warm and made me feel like my concerns were her priority! She was always there for me, before and after the surgery. Answering my late night texts and making sure I was in a good place. My mom has also gotten treatments at their med spa and she couldn't be happier with her results. All the staff are very sweet, kind and welcoming! I would highly recommend this place! - Yelp
