Do you want to get rid of fat on your thighs but have experienced little to no success with exercise? If so, CoolSculpting is a perfect way to achieve your goal of having leaner and more sculpted upper legs.

Although many people rely on this noninvasive and FDA-approved procedure for eliminating bulges of fat on the stomach, it works just as well on the thighs, along with other areas of the body.

To look and feel your best, even recapturing your sexiness, you should give CoolSculpting serious consideration.

Removing Thigh Fat

When it comes to removing fat from the thighs, for many people, exercise and diet alone do not achieve the desired results. CoolSculpting is a revolutionary cooling procedure that gets positive results. With this treatment, a physician places a gel pad and applicator on the problem area of the thighs. From there, controlled cold goes through the applicator, targeting and killing fat cells.

The fat cells on the thighs die through a process called apoptosis, which translates to “programmed cell death.” While some cells die right away, others continue to die over weeks and months. That prevents the body from becoming overwhelmed by a vast number of dead and dying cells. At that point, the fat cells get processed by the body, which over time, flushes them out. Anything remaining gets excreted through the liver and, eventually, stools.

Does It Work on the Inner Thigh?

Yes, CoolSculpting is highly beneficial for reducing fat cells on the inner thigh. Initially, physicians only had applicators for the stomach, but thanks to medical advances, they now utilize applicators explicitly designed for the thighs.

Does It Fix the Outer Thigh?

Along with targeting fat on the inner area, CoolSculpting works incredibly well on the outer thigh. Although both men and women struggle with the same issue of having too much fat on the upper legs, this is a particular challenge for women. The reason is that the physiology of fat storage differs between the two genders.

As an example, women tend to store extra fat in the hips and thighs during pregnancy, which then serves as reserve energy for producing breast milk. However, after giving birth, shifting the fat from this part of the body becomes incredibly difficult. CoolSculpting, which is the only nonsurgical and FDA-approved treatment for reducing fat, delivers proven results without needles, surgery, anesthesia, or downtime.

What Is a Thigh Lift?

A traditional thigh lift is a surgical procedure in which excess skin gets removed. This surgery is often accompanied by liposuction, which sucks out fat from the inner or outer thigh, or both. Usually, bariatric weight loss patients or people who dropped a significant amount of weight using diet and exercise select a surgical thigh lift.

However, you have another option, which is nonsurgical and, therefore, safer. Utilizing an energy-based device called Ultherapy, which is FDA approved, works by lifting the skin. In addition to the thighs, this procedure is excellent for the neck and lower face. With just one treatment, you will notice a difference, which continues to improve over time.

How to Remove Outer Thigh Fat?

CoolSculpting removes fat from the outer thigh area in the same way it works on the inner thigh. The only difference is the placement of the gel pad and applicator. For optimum results, your physician will likely recommend that you adopt an exercise program or get involved with a physical activity that focuses on the upper legs and maintain a healthy diet.

Does It Fix Thigh Cellulite?

Because CoolSculpting targets fat, and the fact that cellulite is a skin issue, this treatment does not help. However, by reducing a firm bulge of fat located beneath the skin, many patients experience smoother, tighter, and more sculpted thighs.

Can It Give Me a Thigh Gap?

Women especially strive to achieve a thigh gap, which is a space between the inner thigh area created when standing erect. When wearing jeans, slacks, and swimsuits, a thigh gap gives women a slimmer and sexier appearance. Instead of going through a radical procedure to create an unnatural gap, CoolSculpting is a better solution, one that makes the thighs look entirely natural.

Will It Make My Thighs Swell?

During and following a CoolSculpting procedure, you can expect to have some degree of swelling. For most people, it is so minimal that no one notices. Usually within a few days to weeks, this side effect, as well as others, subsides.

Will This Procedure Cause Pain in My Thigh?

You will likely experience some sensations associated with the CoolSculpting procedure as mentioned. However, these are only minor and the last a short time. Having actual pain is extremely rare.

Are There Side Effects on My Thighs?

After a CoolSculpting treatment, it is normal to have some side effects. More than likely, you would notice minimal tingling, cramping, aching, tugging, stinging, and sensitivity to touch, but as stated, not only are these side effects minimal, they are also short lasting.
