In the Miami area the cost should range between 5 and 7 thousand dollars including all fees. The cost depends on whether I do a full lift with a vertical incision or just a horizontal incision.

Thigh lift surgery prices vary widely and depend upon several variables. It's important to make sure the fee quote includes the surgeon's fee, facility fee, anesthesia charges and pre and post-operative care. Each of these components may vary widely depending upon the surgeon's practice.

Generally, surgeons who operate in dedicated outpatient cosmetic surgery centers are able to offer lower facility fees than those who operate in hospitals. The surgeon's fee can vary depending upon regional differences and levels of local competition. Anesthesia fees can vary and this may be related to the use of a nurse anesthetist verses a physician anesthesiologist.

When all of these variables are considered, fees in the mid-western United States vary between $5,000and $8,000. It's important to remember that although price is an important component of your decision, it's not the only consideration. Make sure that your surgeon is a board certified plastic surgeon with appropriate qualifications and experience.

In North Texas the cost would range from $5500-$8000.  I would reccommend you call a couple of board certified plastic surgeons in your area and find out the average cost.
