If you ask women in Tampa, many would say that they would like to reduce fat thighs. For most women, the upper thighs are an area that seems to be a magnet for fat. No matter how much exercise or how strict a diet, it is very common for women to find stubborn fat deposits in the lower abdomen and upper thighs. However, a new technology has been developed that can reduce fat thighs without surgery or downtime.
Coolsculpting to Reduce Fat Thighs
Coolsculpting is a new technology that is designed to freeze fat cells while keeping skin, muscle and other cells intact. It is a non-invasive process that does not involve any surgery and no downtime whatsoever. This process has been in use since 2009 to reduce abdominal fat with great success. The process involves cooling the fat cells until they freeze and gradually die off. Fat cells will freeze and die before other cells, which makes it a perfect application for permanent removal of stubborn belly fat. Until recently, only specific areas could be treated with the Coolsculpting applicator. The first Coolsculpting device required suction to draw a roll of abdominal fat into the cooling mechanism. Now, a hand-piece has been developed that conform to different areas of the body. This has been especially helpful to reduce fat thighs.
Invention of New CoolSmooth to Reduce Fat Thighs
The recently developed CoolSmooth hand-piece allows for the applicator to work without the need for suction. This cooling device can now easily treat “non-pinchable” fat bulges such as those found along the upper thighs. The cooling plates can conform to many different body types and are able to freeze fat to reduce fat thighs. According to Dr. Dominic M. Castellano of Elite Facial Plastic Surgery, “our Coolsculpting patients have been very pleased with the results of treatments to decrease abdominal fat and frequently asked if there was a way to freeze the fat from their thighs and other areas of the body. Until now, we could not effectively treat any area that could not be pinched or pulled away from the body into the cooling device. This is an exciting development and can help our patients to reduce fat in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.”
Reduce Fat Thighs and Other Areas without Pain
The Coolsculpting and CoolSmooth technology will shrink pockets of fat up to 25% on the average patient. The treatment takes approximately an hour per area in our Tampa office. During that time the patient is able to read or watch television during the session. There is no pain or pressure during the treatment and the initial cold sensation dissipates within minutes after the treatment is started. Most patients feel numbness in the treated area for a few days although a few have had some very minor cramping as the sensation returns. Patients can return to work immediately following treatment without difficulty. According to Dr. Castellano, “it usually takes 3 to 4 months for the patient to see the results because it takes time for the fat cells to be eliminated from the body following the procedure.” Dr. Castallano had used Coolsculpting himself to test the effectiveness of the technology before recommending the treatment to patients at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery and Body. “The technology is safe and effective. To be able to reduce fat without surgery or downtime makes this a perfect procedure for many of our patients that are looking to lose those last pockets of stubborn fat.”
