A Vertical Thigh Lift will likely give you the best outcome
Thank you for the question. It is always best to see a patient to be able to make a recommendation. From your images, it does appear that you have significant skin excess that would be optimally improved with a vertical thighplasty.
Perhaps seek the opinion of another PS in your area that has a lot of experience in treating patients that have lost a great deal of weight. The key is surgical technique / skin tension and meticulous care during the surgery.
Properly managed with silicone sheeting and sunscreen post-op, the incisions usually heal exceptionally well and are not a concern for patents.
All the best with your decision.

What kind of thigh lift?
Hello and thank you for your question . I agree with you. a spiral thigh lift which has been suggested to you is probably not enough . From what I can see on your photos , You may get away with a vertical alone or in combination with a spiral or oblique type thigh lift.

If you really do not care about scars at all, then I think that a vertical incision always has the potential to remove more skin.
