SmartLipo or CoolSculpting?
I think you would be a good candidate for either SmartLipo or CoolSculpting. You are what we consider a great candidate for both. You are in shape but have a few small problem areas. It really depends on how invasive you'd like to get and how much money you're willing to spend. I would suggest an in-person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon for optimal results. Good luck!
I would recommend Sculpsure or Smartlipo
i am a big fan of both Sculpsure and Smartlipo. you are very thin so Sculpsure may be fine. Smartlipo is a more aggressive and invasive than Sculpsure. i think Sculpsure is much better than Coolsculpt. Sculpsure is newer technology than Coolsculpt and therefore is less well known.

Thank you for your question and pictures. I would recommend laser-assisted liposuction and allow the laser achieve some tightness to the skin. Best of luck!

Options to inner thighs
Thank you for your question. Laser assisted liposuction will be better than cool sculpting for contouring wise. Please consult with a board certified PS for evaluation.
For Best Results, Go With VASER HI DEF, ThermiRF, ultrasound
Coolsculpting is good for removing unwanted fat, but doesn't give enough contouring and definition. I recommend a hi-definition procedure for best results. I use VASER HI DEF with ThermiRF, ultrasound and fat grafting to get the most fat removal, skin tightening, and contouring. HD contouring is much more complex, defining and can give the best in skin tightening, cellulite reduction, and body shaping. I recommend getting a formal consultation with a body contouring expert.

You are a perfect candidate for thigh-gap liposculpture
Don't waste your time and money on hit or miss gimmicky machines. You are a perfect candidate for low-volume, high-definition liposculpture. This will fix your issue without doubt.
Treatment for Inner thighs.
You are the ideal candidate for any of these methods. Another choice to consider is SculptSure.
Cool Sculpt and SculptSure have the benefit of no incisions and no compression. They still take time to get full results. In general, you can expect to loose about 20-25% of the fat.
Liposuction by any method can be more aggressive in the amount of fat removed. Small incisions are needed to place the cannulas, but these should leave very small scars. Afterward, expect to be sore, you will need to wear compression for 3-6 weeks, and full healing can take 3-6 months.
Speak with an experienced surgeon for an in person consult and they can go over the benefits of each method.
Smartlipo Vs. coolsculpting
I would only recommend coolsculpting over smartlipo (or any form of real liposuction) to those who are absolutely against any type of surgery. This is because the results of coolsculpting are minimal to results of real lipo. For example, with coolsculpting, if you have a one inch pinch you may get a 25% (1/4 inch) reduction in the fat layer. With Smartlipo you could reduce the same fat layer by 75% or 3/4 of an inch.
PS, nice job on the photos showing "pinchable" fat.
