Hello and welcome to HCM, Excessive fat deposits in the thigh region needs to be shed off since it can lead to many diseases. Excessive fat deposits on the thighs implies that there will be fat deposition around visceral organs also. Thus, weight loss is required to reduce the fat deposits around thigh region. Cardiovascular exercise is effective in reducing weight. Thus, consult a gym instructor for proper exercise regime to loose weight.
thanks and take care Dr Shailja P Wahal
