Plastic surgery after weight loss
Sounds like a lower body lift and a medial thigh lift may take care of your problems. Without pictures or a physical exam it is difficult to determine exactly what you will need. Consult with a properly trained plastic surgeon and they should be able to help you decide what you may need.
A lower body lift might be ideal
A lower body lift accomplishes several things in one surgery: tighten the abdomen, reshape the outer thigh, elevate the sagging skin in the hips, and lift the drooping buttocks.
Nevertheless, only a personal consultation (of course with a board-certified plastic surgeon who performs body contouring surgery after weight loss on a regular basis) can help determine the best surgical approach.
I hope that helps and good luck.
Body Lift or Something Else
Start by looking for board certified plastic surgeons who perform body lifts and take a look at some of the before and after photos for that procedure. Schedule a consult to discuss your specific goals and the surgeon will help you determine what procedures can help you accomplish those goals.
