Heavy thighs are something that a lot of my patients are quite self-conscious about, and in the past, unfortunately, the only option to slim your thighs was a surgical procedure such as liposuction which involved a general anaesthetic and a lot of downtime.
But nowadays, there are some very good non-surgical alternatives, so in this week’s Q&A I want to tell you about a non-surgical treatment to help slim various areas around the thigh.
CoolSculpting is a method to freeze fat cells and to reduce fat on specific target areas of the body. When we freeze a fat cell, it is naturally destroyed and it dies, resulting in long-term results*.
CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment which delivers proven results without surgery, anaesthesia or downtime. This non-invasive, fat freezing (cryolipolysis) treatment is a body contouring method that reduces fat cells in inner and outer thigh fat with results that are long lasting and noticeable.
Your practitioner will use a the CoolSculpting applicator to target the thigh fat you specifically want to get rid of such as: your saddlebags or outer thigh and inner thighs.
Another key area of concern with thighs is not just the physical bulk of thighs, but it’s the skin quality. As we get older the quality of our skin begins to deteriorate, so not only is the actual fat bulk an issue, but also that uneven cellulite-y appearance of thighs.
A lot of patients ask, “Is there something I can do about this?”
And the answer to this is yes! We can use skin tightening treatments to actually remodel and tighten collagen. Treatments like Thermage and Ultherapy can actually stimulate areas to remodel and firm up the skin.
The other way we can also improve the quality as well is by using CoolSculpting with a very specific applicator called CoolSmooth. For those of you who suffer with bumpy uneven skin you will find this is a very simple solution to your problem.
So if you’re looking for a way to treat your unwanted thigh fat in 2018, these procedures may be a good fit for you!
