CoolSculpting Inner Thighs
Generally the CoolMax applicator is not ideal for the inner thigh due to its size and curvature, which would make it difficult to apply to that area. CoolSculpting does offer a number of applicators that are better designed for the inner thigh, including the CoolCurve and CoolFit; however, it is very important to be evaluated by a physician so that the most appropriate, personalized treatment plan can be created for you.
CoolSculpting's CoolMax applicatio for inner thghs?
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. The CoolMax is usually not used in this area. 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.).
CoolMax and thighs?
The CoolMax applicator was not created for the inner thigh area. The CoolMax is too large for the inner thigh, however the CooFfit was designed for this area and works quit well.

Thank you for posting this great question. While one of the great advantages of CoolSculpting is that there are a variety of applicators that allow for true customization and individualization of each patient's treatment plan, I do not think the CoolMax would be appropriate for the inner thigh. First, the size and curvature of the CoolMax is such that it would be difficult to apply to the inner thigh. Second, even if a good vacuum is achieved with good tissue draw, I would be concerned that there could be contour irregularities if you were to have treatment with the CoolMax in the inner thigh. Of course, an in-person consultation would be most helpful to you so that the best and most appropriate treatment plan can be determined. Good luck!
