trusculpt ID helps get rid of inner thigh fat without surgery

Inner Thigh Fat

It is not a secret how stubborn the inner thigh fat can be. Genetics, lifestyle and hormones play a big role in how we develop excess fat in this area. While most would say cut your carbs and exercise, targeted weight loss is just not possible. In order to slim down any particular area, an overall fat loss would be needed and unfortunately, inner thighs are hard to budge.

In this blog, we'll take you through what we know about the causes of inner thigh fat and why it's so hard to get rid of. We'll also talk about truSculpt ID, a non-surgical treatment to reduce inner thigh fat.

What causes inner thigh fat? 

Diet and exercise issues

The most commonly blamed causes of inner thigh fat are poor diet and lack of exercise. However, these factors alone would not affect just the inner thigh fat area. In fact, it would increase our overall body fat mass. So, while these two might contribute to excess fat in the inner thigh area, they are not the only cause. 


Everyone’s body is different and genetics plays a role in how and where a person’s body stores fat. A recent study suggested that genetics account for up to 70% of the BMI variation. As everyone’s body is different, some are more predisposed to have higher fat distribution around the inner thigh area than others.

Hormonal changes

Hormonal changes due to aging, pregnancy, menopause or certain medical conditions, can also contribute to inner thigh fat.

Excess fat around the pelvis, buttocks and thighs are commonly known as sex-specific fat distribution that are largely affected by female hormones. For this same reason, fat accumulation on the inner thighs is commonly seen during pregnancy which often leads to the formation of cellulite.

Furthermore, with age and for women who are going through menopause, a drop in the body’s metabolic rate and a decrease in day-to-day physical activity plays a part in increasing the body’s fat and body weight - about 10 percent increase of our body weight per decade during adulthood. 

Why is inner thigh fat so hard to get rid of?


Yes, it's genetics again! The same thing that causes your body to store fat in the thighs in the first place can make it persist there.

As some people are genetically predisposed to store more fat around the thigh area, our body has the tendency to store fat in this area first before other areas. That is why it is common to experience difficulty in shifting fat around it.

Hormonal shifts

If hormonal shifts have encouraged your body to keep fat in that area, it will continue to do so even with diet and exercise.

As with genetics, hormones are also an internal factor that are hard to control. If our body's hormonal balance is encouraging fat to be stored around the thighs, it can be hard to get rid of fat in this area even with diet and exercise.

It’s difficult to target inner thigh fat area naturally

Any fat loss from diet and exercise will cause overall fat reduction, but not necessarily in the thigh area. Your body will lose fat in the order dictated by (you guessed it) - genetics and hormones.

How can I get rid of inner thigh fat without surgery?

Fortunately, there are excellent nonsurgical options for removal of inner thigh fat. At Clinica Lase, we offer body contouring through truSculpt ID that can slim your thighs without surgery. 

What is truSculpt?

TruSculpt is the latest non-surgical and non-invasive body contouring technology that is clinically proven to permanently eliminate fat cells in stubborn areas of the body in a 15 minute session with no down time. 

How does truSculpt permanently remove fat cells?

Trusculpt iD utilises the innovative monopolar radiofrequency system to selectively destroy fat cells with heat while maintaining comfortable temperature on the skin. This process will bring the fat cells temperature to approximately 45ºC in order to cause irreversible damage or programmed cell death (apoptosis).

The fat cells will then be naturally removed through our body’s lymphatic system over a 12 week period. Clinical studies have shown an average 24% fat cell reduction with one treatment. Aside from that, trusculpt iD also stimulates elastin and collagen to improve skin laxity.

Does truSculpt work on cellulite?

Although there is no clinical studies that have been done to support this benefit, some clients do see improvements in their cellulite. As cellulite or orange peel skin is caused by deposit of fat beneath the skin and combined with weakening of the skin as we age, trusculpt iD does target both of these factors with the advanced monopolar RF technology. 

Is truSculpt better than liposuction?

Our clients love truSculpt because it’s non-surgical, non-invasive, and has minimal downtime while delivering great results. It’s also an affordable option that is completely discreet and easy to schedule in quick sessions at our clinics.

While many people turn to liposuction for a quick fix to inner thigh fat, it has many downsides. It’s expensive, may require anesthesia, and has considerable downtime.

Can truSculpt help with other fat in other problem areas?

Yes! In fact, multiple areas can be treated at the same time. Some of the most common areas of treatment would be:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (‘love handles’)
  • Double chin
  • Inner, outer and backs of thighs
  • Bra fat
  • Upper arms
  • Banana roll fat (area between buttocks and upper thigh)
