Procedures to Get Rid of Inner Thigh Fat


The causes for unwanted localized deposition of fat are numerous. Obviously, excess dietary intake of carbohydrate will result in the need to store these carbohydrates in the way of fat.  Expansion and swelling of your fat cells can lead to unwanted localized convex distensions. These convex distensions, or localized bumps, can occur in the inner thighs. Inner thigh fat can be treated either minimally invasively or non-surgically.

Procedure Details

Usually the most successful form of treatment to reduce inner thigh fat would be a minimally-invasive, energy-assisted, modern liposuction technique. Most of these modern, energy-assisted lipo-contouring procedures are performed under local anesthesia with a fraction of the pain, discomfort and bruising that would formerly have been required from a more traumatic, primitive, non-energy-assisted liposuction technique.

In radiofrequency-assisted liposuction SmartLipo, or BodyTite™, electrical current rather than a laser fibre is used to coagulate and liquefy the fat and coagulate the blood vessels. The liquefied fat is then aspirated gently, again with a microcannula.

Finally, in some instances, ultrasonic energy is used to coagulate and liquefy fat before it is aspirated.

Dr. Mulholland also offers a wide array of non-surgical, completely non-invasive focal fat contouring techniques and technologies that he has helped innovate and pioneer. These non-surgical devices to treat inner thigh fat may use radiofrequency energy (Thermage®) Venus Freeze, VelaShape™, VelaSmooth™, Fractora Firm or Excelis-like technologies to gently heat the fat, thereby decreasing the size of the fat cells and the overlying contour irregularity.

Other non-surgical techniques, such as external ultrasound (UltraShape®, VASER® Shape and Liposonix®) can also be deployed to reduce the size of unwanted focal localized inner thigh fat.


For maintenance of the slimmer thigh regions, it is advised to stay within the restricted weight range and to follow a proper diet to ensure a healthier lifestyle. Leg exercises will help to reduce inner thigh fat and build muscles. You are always welcome to come in for a second cosmetic surgery procedure for a more proven spot reduction technique.
