Procedure to Treat Inner Thigh Fat

What Causes Inner Thigh Fat?

In most cases, where your body accumulates excess fat is a matter of genetics. This is generally the case with inner thigh fat, which is fat that accumulates on the parts of the thighs that face – or, in the case of excess fat, touch – one another. Excess fat can also accumulate on the inner thighs when there is excess fat on the body in general, if you are overweight or obese, or if you have recently undergone major life events that have resulted in weight gain, such as pregnancy.

Why Is Inner Thigh Fat So Hard To Lose?

Some areas on the body that accumulate fat are difficult to slim down. The inner thigh is one such area. While targeted weight loss, which means losing weight only from specific areas of the body, is not possible, inner thigh fat may be more stubborn than fat on other areas of the body. Inner thigh fat can be harder to lose than fat on other areas of the body since exercises that target the area build muscle more slowly and gradually, making visible weight loss less apparent than on areas such as the stomach or arms.

How Do You Lose Inner Thigh Fat?

While surgical solutions will help you reduce or eliminate stubborn inner thigh fat, there are also some lifestyle changes you can implement that will help you lose this weight.

Diet / Nutrition Program

Since it is impossible to specifically target one part of the body, such as the inner thighs, for weight loss, if you are looking to lose weight on your inner thighs, you will simply have to lose some overall body weight. Changing your diet, or implementing a new nutrition program that emphasizes minimally processed foods that are high in protein and fiber and low in sugar and refined carbohydrates can help you lose weight. Eat more fruits and vegetables and lower your intake of sweets, high-fat foods and fast foods. Also, opt for water, tea or coffee and minimize your intake of sugary sodas or fruit juice.


In order to lose weight, including inner thigh fat, cardiovascular activity is important. High-impact interval training, also known as HIIT, is a type of exercise that uses short bursts (or intervals) of very strenuous, high-impact activity, broken up by brief breaks. The idea behind this type of exercise shifts your body’s metabolism towards burning more fat for energy, rather than carbohydrates, and increases your body’s metabolic rate long after you are finished exercising. Also, many HIIT workouts focus on exercises that use the legs, meaning your thighs and inner thighs will be building muscle, which can help improve their appearance and overall tone and shape.


Running is another type of cardiovascular activity that can help reduce inner thigh fat. Because running utilizes the legs, you will build muscle and improve the tone and shape of your legs when you adopt a consistent running regimen. Running also burns a high number of calories, and can help increase your metabolic rate.

Cardio and Strength Training

Other types of cardiovascular activity might be better for you, if high-impact activities are difficult due to medical conditions or injuries. Walking on a treadmill, using an elliptical machine or a rowing machine can burn calories and help you lose fat all over your body, including from your inner thighs. Sports such as tennis, basketball and soccer are also strenuous cardiovascular activities that can help you lose weight.

In addition, it is important to supplement your cardio with strength training, to help improve your overall performance, minimize the risk of injury, and improve your body’s overall tone and shape. Consider activities that strengthen your lower body and legs, such as squats and lunges, including side lunges, which target the inner thigh.

Surgical Solution to Get Rid of Inner Thigh Fat

While lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise can help you lose weight and improve your body’s overall shape, including from the inner thigh, some types of fat are incredibly stubborn and difficult to eliminate through lifestyle changes alone. Surgical solutions can reduce or eliminate inner thigh fat that does not respond to changes in diet or increased exercise.


BodyTite is a type of liposuction that is performed under general anaesthesia. This type of cosmetic surgery can target any area of the body, including the inner thighs. During a BodyTite procedure, your surgeon will make a small incision, then will use a small internal electrode to release radiofrequency energy to heat, that will then coagulate and gently liquefy fat. The energy creates heat which also then tightens and contracts tissue and seals small vessels. The liquified fat is then removed.


There are a number of liposuction procedures, such as SmartLipo and VaserLipo, that can effectively remove upper thigh fat. These inpatient procedures are performed under general anaesthesia, and require your surgeon to make an incision where you wish for fat to be removed.

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift is a procedure that removes fat and tightens the skin of the inner thigh. There are three types of thigh lift procedure performed at SpaMedica:

Mini-Anterior Thigh Lift: This procedure uses the groin crease to hide the incision scar and lifts and tightens only the laxity of skin of the upper inner thigh.

Medial Thigh Lift: This procedure addresses problems with excess skin and fat on the inside of the thigh, and contours the thigh from the groin to the knee.

Lateral Thigh Lift: this procedure removes excess fat and skin on the outer thigh, and contours the outer thighs and buttocks.

Medical Inner Thigh Fat Treatment

Some non-surgical procedures can also address the stubborn fat of the inner thighs.


SculpSure is a non-invasive procedure using multiple laser applicators, which are applied over the area of unwanted fat. These applicators emit laser energy, heating up the fat to a heat that permanently kills fat cells.


CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that freezes and permanently kills fat cells using freezing technology. Multiple treatments are often needed for optimal results.


UltraShape is a type of nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that uses targeted ultrasound technology to kill fat cells.
