I had Smart Lipo done on my thighs 8 months ago. I was told approx. 8,000 cc's of fluid was removed; a lot I know, but my thighs were large and I have very dense muscle mass. The doctor used a laser, Vaser, and suction.
I am 56, physically fit, work out regularly, watch what I eat, drink lots of water, massage my legs several times daily and moisturize twice daily. In an effort to assist my post-op results, my doctor also provided 8 LipoEx treatments on the front, interior, and exterior areas of my thighs, and 1 mesotherapy treatment on a fatty pocket outside my right thigh. The mesotherapy appears to have done the trick on the fatty pocket.
I still have small lumps and wrinkly sagging skin on the front of my thighs, skin discoloration, three areas of scar tissue, an unnatural looking transition from my thighs to knees/calves, and consistent burning and tingling all over (particularly shortly after a workout and in the evenings).
Would something non-surgical like Thermage help tighten the loose skin? I understand that at my age I can't expect to have thighs like a 20-year-old, but after having made such a large financial investment in them, I would really like to look decent in shorts.
