Why Do Women Get Flabby Inner Thighs?

Table of Contents


We are aware of the several physical differences between a man and a woman but did you know that the differences also extend to how fat is stored or excess weight is found in the respective genders?

Bulky Top And Heavy Bottoms

Men, in general, tend to put on fat in the areas above the waistline while women experience gains below - in places like the butt, hips and thighs. In women, this physiological difference is necessary because the deposited fat in those areas is for breastfeeding.

Inner Thigh Challenge

Flabby inner thighs are a common problem for many women. Childbearing is a reason why the body clings onto the fat in that area which is all good if a woman is trying to get pregnant but not so when she is trying to slim down.

The inner thighs are just one of the areas where fat loss is a real challenge, especially if a woman is already relatively lean to begin with.

Additionally, a woman has to be wary and attentive to the relationship between fat and fertility. Her menstrual cycle and overall reproductive health may be disrupted in the pursuit of wanting to get lean.

When Effort Is Fruitless

In general, losing fat is about working the whole body and not just one specific area. Still, when it comes to the inner thighs, sometimes a well-rounded effort ends up fruitless.

Although genetics do play a part, here are some suggestions to help you along:

  • Cardio – Add some cardio into your exercise routine. Include some spinning (pedalling) and stair climbing exercises.
  • Work the whole leg – As you age, you lose muscles so engage in exercises like lunges and others to give your legs an excellent total balanced workout
  • Watch that diet – Proper nutrition is vital in any fat loss. A healthy serving of protein, good fat, fruits and vegetables goes a long way toward a successful weight loss.

Perhaps the most essential thing to bear in mind is having realistic expectations. Success is rarely achieved overnight. It takes effort, discipline and determination. However, when everything is in place, the results will show.

Why are the results don’t show even though I’ve been working hard?


The truth about fat is that some are just stubborn. Being stubborn by nature is why they are challenging to eliminate regardless of diet and exercise. One of the probable main reasons is genetics, and they tend to appear in areas such as the stomach and inner thighs. Therefore, the only solution to get rid of them is via targeted fat reduction treatment/procedures.

VASER® Lipo is a form of ultrasonic-assisted liposuction procedure well-known among those seeking to remove stubborn fat. It uses sound energy to target and eliminate fat permanently.

Given its efficacy in targeting problem areas, VASER® Lipo significantly lessens the discomfort or pain a patient may experience. In addition, it does not affect the surrounding tissues, leaving vital connective tissues and blood vessels relatively intact. This means that bruising could also be minimised together with the required downtime.
