Outer Thigh Fat

Embarrassed by Fat Thighs?

Even if you work out regularly and eat right, you might still find yourself dealing with fat deposits in different areas of your body. One of the most common trouble spots, especially for women, is the outer thighs.

No one wants to deal with saddlebag fat. Unfortunately, any extra weight you might be carrying around could cause fat thighs and make it difficult to slip into your favorite pair of jeans. So, what can NovaSculpting’s team of experts do for fat thighs to give your body the shape you want?

What Causes Outer Thigh Fat?

When you have fat on your outer thighs, you might refer to the extra flesh as ‘saddlebag fat’. Nothing specific causes fat to appear here other than too much fat all over the body. People carry it in different ways and in different areas.

Women are especially susceptible to saddlebag fat. If you live a sedentary lifestyle, spend most of your days sitting down, or even just because of your genetic makeup, you may be at a greater risk of developing fat outer thighs. Thankfully, a CoolSculpting® procedure at NovaSculpting, the DC metro’s premier CoolSculpting® specialist, can help.

What Treatment Options Are Available for Saddlebag Fat?

If you have a large amount of fat on your outer thighs you need to remove, diet and exercise are the best ways to reduce the overall amount of fat within your body. You cannot gain fat in one specific area. So, you cannot lose it from one specific area, either. But, a general fat reduction can absolutely help your fat thighs to look slimmer.

However, some people can’t seem to get rid of saddlebag fat no matter what they do. If you are tired of dealing with fat thighs, CoolSculpting® at NovaSculpting® can help.

The CoolSculpting® procedure works exceptionally well on fat thighs. It can be used by one of NovaSculpting’s CoolSculpting® experts on specific fat pockets to improve their shape and appearance while getting rid of fat cells effectively. As a result, you will end up with a more shapely, smooth silhouette, and you will be able to fit into your clothes much easier.

What Results Will I See?

The real “work” begins after your NovaSculpting® CoolSculpting® treatment. The treatment itself will bring fat cells just under the surface of your skin and essentially freeze them. Those cells are then damaged by the body and naturally absorbed. As a result, it can take about three weeks before you start to see results. It may take up to three months to fully see the results you want and to get rid of fat thighs.

What you should see, however, is a slimmer and more toned appearance to your outer thighs once the results have fully taken place. Those pesky fat deposits should be gone, and you can enjoy the way your shape looks without worrying about excess saddlebag fat.

Is There Any Downtime?

CoolSculpting® is a safe and effective procedure for fat thighs that can take anywhere from 30-60 minutes. You may experience some redness or slight irritation around the impacted area. That can be especially true if you have sensitive skin. But, there is no downtime required after a CoolSculpting® treatment. Any small side effects that do occur should not impact your day or prohibit you from your regular activities. Because NovaSculpting’s team performs only CoolSculpting® treatments, you can rest assured you are receiving the best possible thigh contouring at our Arlington, VA, practice.
