I have loose, flabby skin on the FRONT of my thighs. I exercise and have never been overweight. I think this is from sun damage. Is there anything that can help?

Usually a medial thigh lift can be performed to remove excess skin of the inner thigh. I recommend consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon for a formal examination to determine which cosmetic procedure would benefit you most.

It is very difficult to give you an accurate answer without a proper examination. If it is only sun damage them laser can help. If it is loose skin, then a possible thigh lift may be of help. Best to you

It's difficult to say without doing a full examination and evaluating the problem area. The sun is the worst enemy when it comes to speeding up aging of the skin. If there is excess skin a thigh lift may be necessary. If the amount of skin laxity is mild, it may respond well to some lasers such as SkinTyte.

It is difficult to say without examining you and seeing you in consultation; however, often loose flappy skin of the thigh can be ameliorated by thigh lift surgery. I hope this helps.
