Inner Thigh Fat

Through lack of activity, bad eating habits or weight gain, we start accumulating fat which builds up in several areas of the body as we age. Inner thigh fat can a particular problem, preventing you from fitting into your favourite jeans, or causing physical problems like thigh chafing. Our non-surgical inner thigh fat removal treatments can sculpt these areas of thigh fat without surgery or downtime.

What is inner thigh fat?

Inner thigh fat is a term used to describe the accumulation of subcutaneous fat stores around the inner thigh area, between the legs. This type of fat is the shallow, wobbly type that sits just below our skin. Where your body stores fat is largely dependent on genetics. However, women tend to store excess fat in their hips, thigh area and lower belly, more so than men. Although men can also gather fat in this body zone.

What causes inner thigh fat?

Many factors can cause us to build up inner thigh fat. Whether it is a lack of physical activity, bad eating habits or weight gain, we start to accumulate pockets of fat across several areas of the body as we age, particularly as our metabolism starts to slow down. This can make thigh fat a particular problem for older men and women, although any age group can suffer from the condition.

How to get rid of inner thigh fat

While we may be lured by promises of slimming down thighs in a week or burning inner thigh fat fast with exercise, there are only two ways to lose inner thigh fat successfully.

The first is surgical liposuction – but an inner thigh lift under the knife means scarring, bruising and recovery time. The second is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for a noticeable and long-lasting thigh fat reduction in unwanted inner thigh fat bulge: CoolSculpting®.

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment which delivers proven results without surgery, anaesthesia or downtime. This non-invasive, fat freezing (cryolipolysis) treatment is a body contouring method that reduces fat cells in inner thigh fat with results that are long-lasting and noticeable. Learn more about thigh reduction in our ‘CoolSculpting for Thighs‘ blog post.

Your practitioner will use the CoolSculpting applicator to target the thigh fat specifically. This is one of the best inner thigh fat removal treatments on the aesthetic market today, and requires zero surgery or recovery time. We also offer CoolSculpting Elite, an improved dual applicator system that allows our practitioners to reduce fat across multiple body areas at the same time as carrying out a standard thigh fat removal treatment. Contact our clinics for information or visit our CoolSculpting Elite treatment page for further details.

How to lose inner thigh fat

In most cases, we recommend CoolSculpting for thigh fat treatment as the first port of call. However, we also offer a range of skin tightening and lifting treatments that can help patients to further sculpt and define the skin around their inner thigh area.

Thermage for Inner Thigh Fat

Thermage CPT is a non-surgical treatment that tightens and lifts the skin thanks to its collagen stimulating effects. While the treatment does not break down thigh fat, it can be used in conjunction with treatments like CoolSculpting to tighten up sagging skin across the inner thighs. The result is better definition and tighter skin across your inner thigh area.

Ultherapy for Inner Thighs

Ultherapy is a leading lifting and skin tightening treatment that utilises non-invasive ultrasound energy to reboot our body’s own natural collagen production. While it does not minimise thigh fat deposits, it can improve skin laxity in the inner thigh area by replenishing structural collagen stores and making the skin stronger and tauter in this key zone. The Cosmetic Skin Clinic is the UK’s leading Ultherapy Centre of Excellence and has been voted as such for 7 years in a row.
