Avoiding a thigh lift

But your skin will be loose after weight loss and is likely to be looser still after liposuction.
Have liposuction. Let it heal for 6 months and if skin is too loose, have a thigh lift. Best wishes.

Lipo or thigh lift?
As you know after a lot of weight loss the skin permanently loses some of its elasticity which commonly can set someone up for disappointing results from lipo alone.On the other hand ,many patients after banding still have a fair amount of leftover local fat.So for best results many need both a lift and liposuction.Depending on your contour,skin tone and excess and other technical factors your surgeon may even suggest staging the two procedures for safety's sake
Liposuction is an option
I think you can benefit from liposuction. My only hesitation would be because you are weight-loss patient that your skin quality may not be the best and liposuction will cause sagging of the skin. This can only be determined by physical examination.
