Inner thigh sagging

Sagging skin in the thigh area is usually caused by major weight loss, muscle loss or loss of skin elasticity. There are several treatment options depending on the degree of sagging and laxity.

What causes inner thigh sagging and excess fat above the knees?

Skin sagging is a natural part of aging but a significant weight-loss can subserve the process, while the skin loses its elasticity and original volume and becomes loose and hanging. Thighs chafing occurs as an additional unpleasant consequence which means that the legs rub against each other through skin-to-skin contact or through clothing. Because of this the condition creates not only an aesthetical, but also a health problem.

The changes of the connective tissue depend on the aging process and also personal features. Genetic factors, poor diet choices, sedentary lifestyle also has a major role in the regenerational mechanism and how this area can preserve and restore its tightness and elasticity. Since our mid-twenties the amount of collagen-, elastin- and hyaluronic acid decreases – these molecules have an important rule in keeping the skin even, firm and soft. Eventually this process is responsible for developing loose, visibly saggy skin all over the body. In some more severe cases a significant amount of excess skin can occur.

The natural aging process affects everyone but the size of the saggy skin area differs from person to person. Genetic factors, sedentary lifestyle, natural aging process, smoking, the amount of UV radiation and sun damage and also the increased stress are considered as influencing factors.

Having excess fat above the knees is also considered a common aesthetic problem which makes a lot of people's lives miserable. This condition usually affects those who are prone to have fat storages primarily on their lower body (hips, buttocks, thighs) because of hormonal imbalance or hereditary reasons. This predisposes the involvement of the areas around the knees. The condition can develop even if you have optimal weight and BMI, but it’s important to mention that weight gain and obesity are a frequent cause of the accumulation of excess knee fat.

Removing excess fat above the knees and tightening saggy skin is not an easy project. You need to be conscious about your workout plan and eating pattern but unfortunately in some cases the combination of these and hard work is not enough. By an adequate medical aesthetic treatment plan or plastic surgery the thighs can be effectively reshaped and become toned and slimmer again.

Morpheus8 microneedle radiofrequency - Skin tightening

A fractional radiofrequency microneedling is an excellent way of tightening the loose, saggy skin parts and also of reducing the unwanted fat pockets. The radiated thermal energy makes the skin contract and tighten up while an intense regenerational process is triggered. New collagen and elastin production makes the skin firmer, tighter and glowier while strengthening the skin texture and improving the appearance of the thighs.

Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction

By radiofrequency assisted liposuction our professionals can precisely and permanently get rid of the excess subcutaneous fat storages. During the treatment the emitted high thermal energy makes the connective tissue contract and as a consequence simultaneously dissolve fat and induce collagen- and elastin production in a single treatment. The technique promotes the regeneration process while making the treated area appear firmer and more toned. While tightening the skin surface and restoring its’ elasticity, it can be applied to multiple, larger body areas like the abdomen, glutes, legs (thighs, knees) and arms and even the under chin. It’s mostly suggested if the main problem is the excess fat and not only the saggy skin parts.

Coolwaves™ skin tightening is also a great way to reduce sagging skin above the knee and on the thighs. The waves cause collagen fibres to contract and break down fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated from the body through the metabolic process. The effect is to reduce local fat accumulation, eliminate cellulite, reduce sagging and significantly improve body contour.

If the medical gymnastics and the electromagnetic neuromuscular stimulation is not enough, the treatment plan can be supplemented by a classic or mini thigh lift in order to achieve the best results in reducing the fat depots and excess, loose skin. The method also provides a solution for cellulite and the thighs regaining their slim, tight and firm appearance. Eventually the legs become more youthful and proportional.
