posted on 3/19/2011
Those extra inches around your inner and outer thighs can be difficult to lose with workouts alone. Even making changes in your diet won’t always change your body composition, and cosmetic surgery may be a last resort. If you don’t want to go under the knife, you do have another option for losing fat around the thighs: Zeltiq CoolSculpting. This innovative, non-invasive fat reduction procedure can get rid of the extra fat around the thighs within an hour, and you can see results within a few months after treatment.
If you’re struggling to lose body fat on the inner and outer thighs, set up a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon in your area and learn more about Zeltiq. This innovative fat removal procedure is only available at select cosmetic surgery centers in the United States, and is one of the newest alternatives to liposuction.
Getting Rid of Fat on the Thighs with Zeltiq
The Zeltiq CoolSculpting system is designed with Cryolipolysis technology. Instead of melting the body fat like many lasers and some liposuction procedures can, this procedure involves freezing the fat cells until they die. The dead fat cells are eliminated from the body naturally and can be effective for fat reduction in even smaller areas, such as the inner and outer thighs.
Many women struggle with losing those stubborn inches around their inner and outer thighs. For some women, the extra fat in these areas is simply a result of genetics. For others, the body fat stays because of general lifestyle habits or an unhealthy diet. Whatever the case may be for you, there is a way to get rid of that body fat for good.
Zeltiq has been approved by the FDA for skin cooling and anesthetic use, and has been used for fat reduction in Europe and Canada since 2009. It was recently introduced into the U.S. market specifically for fat reduction.
What to Expect with Zeltiq CoolSculpting
If your cosmetic surgeon recommends Zeltiq CoolSculpting for reducing body fat from the thighs, you will need to set aside about two to four hours for the treatment. Each treatment cycle lasts for one hour, and you will only be slightly uncomfortable for the first five minutes of the treatment as the cooling device comes into contact with the skin and begins to freeze the tissues. By the ten-minute mark, you won’t feel anything and the treatmetn will continue.
After the entire treatment is complete, the skin and tissues on your thighs may be slightly red and tender, but these side effects will subside within a few hours. You can return to regular activites, including working out and even lifting heavy objects, immediately after your treatment. As the body begins to flush the dead cells and waste from the body, you’ll notice the circumference of your thighs begins to decrease.
