ThermiTIGHT following pregnancy
Thanks for sharing your photos. You seem well informed. ThermiTIGHT IS working to shrink skin. I believe it would work well for you but only shrink and tighten 20-30% of the central tummy around the belly button.
If you are considering more pregnancies, then ThermiTIGHT maybe the answer for now as it is minimally invasive with only needle puncture sites and no incision.ThermiTIGHT is limited in that it will not remove skin excess nor tighten the inner muscle corset. You can consider a traditional tummy tuck in the future when you are more receptive to the scar.
Please consider a proper consultation by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with experience in all options so you receive the best recommendation for you.
All the best!
ThermiTight/Skin Tightening/High Definition procedures
Thank you for your question. I recommend a combination of procedures for optimal results.
ThermiTight utilizes a small electrode inserted under the skin to heat tissue to a selected therapeutic temperature. Literature has shown that elevating skin to a therapeutic temperature level can contract collagen molecules and stimulate collagen production, which may give the appearance of lifting or tightening. Fat reduction is rare, unless set to high temperatures and kept at high temperatures for a significant amount of time .
To best answer your question, it depends on how much skin laxity you have. ThermiTight can work well in the thigh area to tighten skin that is mild to moderately laxity. Surgery may be a better option, if you have excessive laxity. Results with ThermiTight vary from patient to patient. You should experience some overall improvement.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

Will ThermiTight work on my stomach?
On the other hand, if you simply want to tighten the central skin and remove some of the fat and are willing to accept a flatter (but not completely flat) tummy, then ThermiTight is an excellent option. And, the benefit of this is that there are literally no access scars and you can still get pregnant later on. In many cases, we are also combining a series of external ThermiBody treatments for even greater skin tightening.
I hope that helps!
