What does 25% spot reduction mean?

I am thinking about getting sculpture on my thighs because they rub together and chafing is so uncomfortable, and i never wear shorts in the summer because my thighs "eat" shorts. I am not overweight, large thighs run in my family (thanks mom lol). I am not looking for "thigh gap" but I am looking for some relief. What kind of reduction would up to 25% look like? An inch? Or two?

25% spot reduction inner thighs

There are multiple considerations in selecting
the best procedure for each patient.
By your question I suppose you have been
looking at  Coolsulpting.
I would recommend you have an evaluation
by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to
determine what is best for you before a
financial expenditure.

The inner thighs have been an area that we struggle with in plastic surgery.  Without photos it is tough to give you more precise advice on this, but I would ask you to first consider Coolsculpting before any other technology.  The problem with the inner thigh is not just fat...but also skin excess in most cases.  Have a surgeon take a look at this area to give you best advice after an examination.  I have become a bigger fan of cool sculpting for this area so I would tell you to seek that option first.
Good luck

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well.. This is the surgical procedure that revolutionized cosmetic surgery becoming one of the most performed cosmetic procedures. Subcutaneous tissue or fat is removed in order to contour the body in a way that is harmonious and pleasing to the senses. It can be performed in almost all regions of the body such as the neck, chin, abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles. Usually done through a small incision in the skin through which a cannula connected to a vacuum is applied, it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. After liposuction your body is going to be really swollen for at least 2 to 4 months after your surgery. It is important for you to wear your compression garment for at least 6 months, the first 3 months 24/7 and then the last 3 months at least 12 hours per day for your body get use to not having the faja for so many time. When you remove it, your body can get swollen and also you can have pain. Remember to also compress your body to prevent a seroma which is an accumulation of liquid that has to be drained, it is hard to touch and also really painful. Bruises are completely normal for almost 3 months from surgery, that’s why is better for you to use a bruising cream and apply it all over your body 3 times a day. To prevent bad circulation and swollen legs, use compression socks. Brazilian butt lift can be performed with the same procedure and for a month it will be swollen and it will drop a little bit without losing it’s shape if you use your garment.. If you’re going to perform liposuction on your inner, outer, anterior, lateral, postetior thighs, be careful and consult with your surgeon what’s best for you, sometimes we have more extra skin than fat, that can cause severe sagginess on our legs, which can be only be reversed performing a thigh lift…

25% reduction

your inner thigh fat should be all removed with liposculpture; this will leave you with skin; if the skin is redudndant, you may consider a medial thigh tuck. A consultation or photos would be helpful to give you a definite recommendation.

Sculpsure Treatment on Inner Thighs

We love sculpsure here although VASER hi def does much more for the thigh gap.  You may need a few sculpsure treatments and its best to combine with venus legacy.  Best, Dr. Emer.
