CoolSculpting for Saddlebags: How Effective Is It?

Most of the excess fat stored in our bodies stays in our legs and thighs, which is why it seems difficult to get rid of the stubborn bulges around these areas even with a healthy diet and regular exercise. If you want to make your thighs and legs look sculpted and sexy without going through plastic surgery, then you can try CoolSculpting to eliminate outer thigh fat and inner thigh fat.

So does the CoolSculpting procedure really work for eliminating saddlebags? CoolSculpting treatment is an effective alternative to plastic surgery for anyone who wants to get rid of stubborn fat cells around their thighs, legs, and other body parts. It can help remove around 20% to 25% of the unwanted fat in the CoolSculpting treatment areas after just a few sessions.

Can CoolSculpting Get Rid of Saddlebags?

Like a double chin or love handle, saddlebags aren’t something we want to see in our bodies. Unwanted fat easily accumulates in our bottom half, but it can be especially hard to eliminate with just diet and exercise. Luckily, CoolSculpting thighs are becoming a safe and popular option for removing fat in the inner and outer thighs even without surgery.

CoolSculpting is a minimally invasive fat reduction and body contouring treatment that uses fat-freezing technology to destroy unwanted fat cells in the targeted area – such as the thighs, legs, and other areas where fat cells usually accumulate. The procedure utilizes specialized CoolSculpting thigh applicators to help a patient achieve the thigh gap and sculpted legs they want. 

What Happens to Saddlebags After a Session of CoolSculpting?

As much as CoolSculpting thigh treatment is effective for visible fat reduction around the thighs and legs in the long run, patients might not see visible results after just one session. CoolSculpting is a minimally invasive treatment, so it takes some time for the damaged fat cells to be flushed out of the body. 

Right after the first session of CoolSculpting, patients may experience some uncomfortable symptoms like slight pain and numbness where the CoolSculpting applicator was placed. These mild side effects usually go away on their own after a few days, but make sure to contact a healthcare provider immediately if they persist or worsen.

What Results to Expect After CoolSculpting on Saddlebags

CoolSculpting thigh treatment can eliminate up to 20% to 25% of the fat bulge in the treated area after a few weeks and multiple treatment sessions. The initial results typically show a couple of weeks after the CoolSculpting procedure as the damaged fat cells are slowly flushed out of the body.

The results of CoolSculpting get better over the following weeks – until the final results are visible about 3 to 4 months after the treatment. The good news is that the eliminated fat cells won’t regrow. However, new fat cells may still develop in the same treated area so patients are advised to lead a healthy lifestyle and maintain a stable weight.

How Soon to Get a Second Treatment With CoolSculpting for Saddlebags

A CoolSculpting provider or plastic surgeon usually recommends waiting around 30 days after the first CoolSculpting session before getting the second one. This waiting time is essential to let the mild side effects subside and the initial results show.

Waiting between treatments gives the patient’s body enough time to flush out most of the destroyed fat cells in the thighs. It also allows providers to gauge if additional treatment sessions are needed to achieve the patient’s desired results.

Are There Risks and Side Effects When CoolSculpting Saddlebags?

CoolSculpting is a lot safer than reconstructive surgery, laser treatment, and liposuction because it doesn’t require heat or surgery. Most of the common side effects like pain, irritation, and numbness that some patients experience are mild – they subside a few days after the treatment even without medical intervention.

One extremely rare but serious side effect that’s unique to CoolSculpting is paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH). It’s a condition in which instead of reducing stubborn thigh fat, the treatment area bulges because of enlarged and hardened fat cells.

It’s not a life-threatening condition, but many patients still want to remove the hardened fat caused by PAH. They usually turn to treatment options like laser liposuction and traditional liposuction to do so. The risk of PAH may scare off some patients, but it’s worth remembering that this complication only has a low incidence rate of 0.0051%.

Is CoolSculpting Good for Your Saddlebags?

CoolSculpting is a safe and highly effective treatment for eliminating saddlebags and giving you the slim thighs you deserve. However, it might not be the best fat reduction option for some patients. Patients should also remember that CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss treatment, so they shouldn’t expect their initial weight to change much after the procedure.

You’re a good candidate for saddlebag CoolSculpting if you:

  • Have good overall health
  • Have good skin laxity
  • Are close to your ideal weight
  • Have pinchable fat in your thighs
  • Are not diagnosed with certain conditions like cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria

CoolSculpting Saddlebags Price: How Much Does the Treatment Cost?

The cost of CoolSculpting varies depending on a lot of factors, including the number of treatment areas, the number of required treatment sessions, the experience of the provider, and the location of the CoolSculpting office. Since CoolSculpting is a cosmetic treatment, patients might have to cover the cost of their treatment out of their pockets.

Some dermatologists may charge about $750 for the inner thigh and $1500 for the outer thigh. Patients may also have to spend more if they choose Coolsculpting Elite, but this treatment typically produces better results in a shorter time than regular CoolSculpting treatment.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "The treatment itself was not uncomfortable. Afterwords, I felt great. I didn't really notice anything for about 30 days. After day 30 until about a month later, I started noticing that my favorite jeans were not as tight anymore. I wasn't having to suck in to get them buttoned. And by that two month period after my CoolSculpting

  • "It's subtle at first, and then a month later you look and go, "Wow - It really did something!" It really moved the bar for me, and I'm feeling better about myself already. It feels so good to put on anything and know I look as good as I've ever looked. And I didn't say that or feel that when I was in my 20's, 30's, and 40's."
