How to Prevent Inner Thigh Chafing
Skin chafing can be an extremely uncomfortable problem and is typically caused by friction, excess moisture, and/or irritation from clothing. One common area that tends to chafe for many men but mostly women is their inner thighs, due to factors like sweat buildup, tight clothing, and prominent excess fat. While this can be a chronic issue for many people, despite the season, there are a variety of ways you can help prevent or treat inner thigh chafing to improve your day-to-day comfort.
Non-surgical ways to help manage chafing in the thighs include methods like using anti-chafing bands, wearing loose clothing or clothing made of special fabrics that absorb excess moisture in the area. Another option if your chafing is caused by enlarged inner thighs is adopting a healthier lifestyle through diet and exercise to reduce areas of prominent fat. Weight loss may help some individuals, but in other cases, their thighs may have isolated pockets of fat that do not respond well to a diet and exercise regimen.
For men and women who can’t seem to find relief from thigh chafing — due to the skin overlying areas of excess fat rubbing against each other throughout the day — there are several treatment options available that might help. At Saratoga Springs Plastic Surgery, PC, Dr. Steven Yarinsky offers surgical and non-surgical solutions that can help contour thighs for a more toned appearance. Those who are not good candidates or not interested in surgery may want to consider “warm sculpting” using truSculpt® iD or SculpSure®, both of which can reduce localized areas of fat buildup through non-invasive means.
Patients wanting to significantly reduce excess fat in their thighs may find better relief from chafing and other issues through the “gold standard” for fat reduction — liposuction. Liposuction using Dr. Yarinsky’s signature External Ultrasound Assisted Tumescent (EUATL) technique is an incredibly popular and effective treatment for enlarged thighs that works to extract targeted fat cells for a more sculpted thigh shape. The procedure offers long-lasting results and benefits, since the removed fat cannot regenerate.
