I want more sculpted inner thighs as I have fat on the inner thigh but not on the outer thigh
CoolSculpting on Inner and Outer Thighs
Both inner and outer thighs are very common areas for CoolSculpting. The depending factor is whether or not there is enough tissue for the applicator to hold on to. You need to have approx 2 inches of tissue that you can physically grab. During your consultation, the Doctor you meet with will be able to tell you if you are a good candidate or not. We have been seeing great, consistant results w/ Zeltiq use on the inner and outer thighs.

Coolsculpting for thighs
Coolsculpting will work for thighs however it all depends upon how well the chamber connects to your thighs. There may be a chamber in the future that fits thighs better than what is currently available.
Coolsculpting can be used for inner thighs on some people
The limiting factor is the handpiece attachment. If it can attach, then Coolsculpting can be used for this area. Another alternative for helping inner thighs without a lot of downtime is the Body-Jet, Water Assisted Liposuction. The Body-Jet will remove the fat faster and more aggressively than Coolsculpting. I've heard thru the grapevine that there is a Coolsculpting handpiece in the works specifically to be used for the thighs, but I don't know if this is true or when it should be coming.

Coolsculpting for inner thighs?
We have treated patients inner thighs with cool sculpting and have had mixed reviews. What we find is the inner thighs tend to carry a more resistant fat. This means it typically requires more then one treatment to get desired result. The other thing you must be careful about with working with the inner thighs is placing the applicator so it does not leave a groove in your inner thighs. I hope this helps answer your question.

If the applicator can be applied to the area, it can be done. There must be enough fat distribution for the applicator to fit the area.
Coolsculpting for the Inner Thighs
Yes, Coolsculpting works well on the inner thighs. The results are not seen immediately, but in approximately 4-8 weeks, you will see a 20-25% reduction in fat tissue. The Coolsculpting device was initially cleared for abdominal and flank fat reduction, but has proven itself extremely beneficial on many areas of the body. I have had excellent patient results with Coolsculpting on the soft, pinchable skin of the inner thighs. Coolsculpting can provide a thinner, toner, and more sculpted look for your thighs, best of all there is little to no down time with the treatment.
The most important key to a successful procedure: a good physical exam by your dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon, who will make sure you have enough fat in this area for the Coolsculpting hand piece to grab hold of. The hand piece must have a tight grip and good suction for the Coolsculpting treatment to work; otherwise, your results will be less than optimal.
CoolSculpting on Inner Thighs
CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for the flanks (love handles) and abdomen and is proven to be a safe and effective treatment. Unfortunately, at this time it is not approved for use on the inner thighs.
Coolsculpting and the inner thighs
Unfortunately, Coolsculpting is only FDA approved for the abdomen, back, and love handles. When it gets FDA approval for the inner thighs, I'm sure it will be a great area to treat.
CoolSculpting and fat reduction of thighs
The inner thigh area may sag more than other areas after liposuction. As CoolSculpting has not yet manufactured an applicator for the thighs and we don't have results of the safety, I would be cautious to do this on the inner thigh as an off-label procedure.
