CoolSculpting in a 53 y.o. menopausal woman
CoolSculpting has FDA approval for fat reduction since 2010. CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells. Fat cells are more susceptible to damage by freezing than the other cells, (nerve, vessel, bone, etc.), around them. The fat cells die via a process called apoptosis, (programmed cell death). The number of fat cells are therefore reduced. This happens over a period of time, so the body is not overwhelmed with dead fat cells. The body will take these cells up, process them and excrete them, just as any other cell. The remnants are filtered through the liver, and then excreted eventually via stool. CoolSculpting now has an applicator for thighs. CoolSculpting had been used in this area with good results. See an experienced CoolSculpting practice, they will determine if you are a candidate. Best to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. They will be able to tell you of the different options, (CoolSculpting, Liposuction, Direct excision, etc.).

Coolsculpting for treatment of unwanted fat
Coolsculpting can be a great way to treat unwanted fat! Without seeing you in person, it is difficult to say if it is the best treatment for you. It does not tighten the overlying skin, so your current skin elasticity needs to be assessed prior to treatment.
Best of luck!
