What is the Best Revision for my Inner Thighs and Loose Skin?

I had lipo to my inner thighs and then trasferred to my butt. Its 6 mos. later and the skin in my inner thigh is loose and jiggly. He is moving to another state and is offering to give ne a discounted revision. I want to know if I should have an inner thigh lift or could vaser lipo tighten up the skin without leaving me with the scar. I would also like to know of the life expectancy of the inner thigh lift. Im 34 and their telling me that the scar will fall.

Medial thigh lift is a good option

like any procedure, a medial thigh lift done poorly can lead to problems, done well it can improve elastotic (loose, jiggly) skin. if the surgeon does not do the procedure with regularity then pay for a good operation minimizing complications.

Best to consult in person, and impossible to give anything other than hypothetical answer without a consultation, but, hypothetically, a medial (middle) thigh lift would likely help the situation.  I would not put faith in any laser/RF or other device.  Of course there can be complications from any procedure, but a thigh lift likely is the best course.  Best of luck to you.

You probably need an excisional type thigh lift. If done right, the scar should not migrate and the results should be permanent. Don't try any non invasive treatments as they will not work.

Excess skin on the inner thigh can only be addressed by an inner thigh lift. The scar is well hidden.

Inner thigh looseness after liposuction

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

The inner thigh does not respond as well as many other ares with liposuction as its structural support is not the same as the outer thigh.  It is surprising that enough fat could be removed in this area for a sufficient buttock augmenation. I doubt that smart lipo, vaser, conventional liposuction could improve this and can make it worse.  I also doubt that Thermage would help tighten this to any significant degree.  A thigh lift may be the only recourse but the scar may descend with time.  You should see a board-certified plastic surgeon, who has a great experience with thigh lifts,  for a consultation with a physical examination to determine how you may respond to a thigh lift procedure.

Inner Thigh Lift Better Than Non-Surgical Skin Tightening

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Loose skin in the inner thighs is always better managed by a thigh lift than any form of non-surgical skin tightening. This would be particularly true after the excess skin has been created by a prior liposuction procedure.

If you have loose and hanging skin, then you need a surgical procedure such as thigh lift.  There is no laser or other non-invasive treatment that can achieve this dramatic of skin tightening.  If you post pictures, we may be able to give you more specific advice.


Good Luck.
