In brief: Exercise ; leg veins

Reducing thighs with varicose veins can be accomplished by choosing exercises that do not increase venous pressure into the leg.
Avoid breath holding, squats, running, dead lifts. Walk on an upwards incline and do high rep low weight lifting. Avoid leg exercises that bulk up leg muscles. Diet plays a large part, unfortunately, overall weight loss will be worth the effort.

In brief: Exercise will help

Exercising will improve your veins by improving your cardiovascular fitness.
The decreased body fat will also decrease the pressure on you veins. Varicose veins are hereditary, but you can improve your overall health with exercise and improved diet. If you reduce your weight, your thighs will decrease in size proportionately. Good luck.
