      I would need to examine you or have more comprehensive, standardized photos to make a precise recommendation.  I think that an improvement may be gained from a thigh lift procedure if the issue is skin laxity.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of thigh lift and body contouring procedures each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Thanks for the question and the pictures.People specially women since their skin is softer than male skin, who eat junk food and can not burn their calories will look like this whether liposuction or not. No need to blame the appearance to some surgery in the past.Try to loose wait on your own.No plastic surgery can help the look that is created by fat trying to burst out of skin.wish you good luck.

Skin issues on thighs

If skin laxity is the issue, then sometimes a thigh lift is reasonable. There are lasers for cellulite, but the results to me hav enot been impressive.  Good luck.
