Thermitight for skin laxity over buttock/ upper thigh areas
Thermitight on outer thighs and buttocks
Thank you for your question. It does appear that you have some outer skin laxity after liposuction. Thermitight can help improve this, as long as your expectations are realistic. Thermitight will not completely alleviate it, but in my practice, I think that you can expect 30-50% improvement in the laxity with this localized area. It is one of the best minimally invasive options we have on the market to tighten skin and having some improvement, although not complete, is certainly worth it to many patients so they don't have to have a visible scar in this region with an outer thigh or buttocks lift.

Will ThermiTight Fix a Saggy Behind? Yes, RF Energy Can Tighten Loose Skin
ThermiTight is an excellent way to address skin laxity in most areas of the body. It is a minimally invasive procedure in which we insert an electrode under the skin to deliver radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat up the collagen, forcing it to shrink. When the collagen shrinks, the skin contracts and tightens. In addition, ThermiTight will promote the production of new collagen in the skin, which will strengthen it and make it more resistant to future sagging. Sculptra is sometimes added to the upper buttock for higher fullness, which will also lift the lower buttocks. Combination treatment like this would likely give the best results. Please find a board-certified dermatologist to help you regain a more flattering curve to your buttocks and upper thighs.

ThermiTIGHT for buttock laxity
ThermiTIGHT is one of the new “game changers” in skin tightening. While lasers penetrate the skin from outside to generate heat along the dermal skin, ThermiTIGHT places the radio-frequency (RF) energy directly where it is needed under local anesthesia; without pain and no need for a series of procedures.
My patients have been pleased with the amount of skin contraction immediately and improved tightening with collagen/scar production over the subsequent year. It should be extended up the inferior buttock, across the crease and onto the upper thigh / banana roll.
Other options to augment the results of ThermiTIGHT include:
- ZO Retamax retinoid skin cream
- Sculptra injection
- Consideration for Silhouette InstaLift for added “lifting” action beyond the “shrink-wrapping” result of ThermiTIGHT.
I hope this works as well for you. All the best!
