Does Coolsculpting Work on The Thighs?

Coolsculpting is a revolutionary technique that allows people to get rid of stubborn, unwanted fat without invasive procedures like liposuction. For many people, this procedure succeeds where diet and exercise fall flat. Some people struggle with fat in certain areas of the body that just won’t go away.

“Coolsculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical method that involves freezing the fat in a specific area,” shares Dr. Kellie Reed, board certified Dermatologist at Sanova Dermatology in Austin, Texas. The fat is then absorbed and eliminated by the body. What’s great about this procedure is that you don’t have to take a week off work to have it done. This is good news, you can save your vacation for the beach!

Coolsculpting is not instantaneous. It works over a period of weeks, as the body eliminates the frozen fat cells. “It’s a great way to help reduce the appearance of fat in certain areas of the body, in conjunction with healthy diet and exercise,” Dr. Reed says.

Can Coolsculpting Be Used On The Thighs?

Coolsculpting was originally used on the abdominal area, targeting love handles and stubborn belly fat. It has since been approved for use on other areas, such as the upper arms, back, banana roll and the thighs.

“This is good news, because the thighs are a common source of frustration for patients who find that no matter how much they diet and exercise, the fat deposits in the upper thighs simply won’t budge,” explains Dr. Reed.
