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 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 works on inner thighs

CoolSculpting does work on the inner thighs. And the machine does have a specific hand piece for this purpose. During your consultation your doctor will be able to evaluate your need and develop a therapeutic plan.

Thank you for your question, West Jordan. SculpSure is the superior product for addressing fat. I suggest you consult with an experienced board certified facial plastic surgeon to address the inner thighs.

Best wishes,

CoolSculpting Reduces Fat on Inner Thighs

CoolSculpting is an excellent fat reduction procedure for the inner thighs. In fact, there is an applicator designed for just that purpose so it fits snugly on the thigh. Inner thighs are common trouble areas where fat tends to accumulate, even on individuals who lead healthy lifestyles. You can target the inner thigh alone or also treat the outer thigh. Find an experienced CoolSculpting provider to get the most out of your treatment.

CoolSculpting can treat thighs

 Yes, CoolSculpting has an applicator specifically designed to treat the thighs, both outer and inner. Generally you can expect the same kind of results from the thighs as from other areas of the body - around a 25-30% reduction after one session. Be sure to visit a board-certified, experienced dermatologist who will know where to place the applicator for the best results and who can make sure that you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Inner thigh Coolsculpting

CoolSculpting has great results on the inner thighs.  You can expect to see less pinchable fat in the areas treated.  It is always best to consult with your treatment provider so you can be properly assessed prior to treatment. 

CoolSculpting for Inner Thighs

CoolSculpting (cryolipolysis) is a recent form of non-invasive fat reduction. In 2012, the FDA approved CoolSculpting for the abdomen and flanks (love-handles). More recently, in 2014, it was approved for treatment of the inner and outer thigh. So yes, CoolSculpting is both FDA approved and effective for fat reduction of the inner thighs.
