4 Ways to Get Thinner Thighs: Fat Loss Without Diet or Exercise (Part 1)–
Frustratingly, the number of fat cells in our bodies becomes fixed in our teenage years and losing or gaining weight does not increase or decrease this number of fat cells. As you gain weight, the fat cells on your body will get bigger – and with dieting and weight loss, the cells may get smaller but the number of fat cells stays the same.
This is why diet and exercise are often powerless to cause fat loss in a woman’s thighs. And, to make matters worse, gravity, fluctuations in weight, and age-related loss of muscle mass and skin elasticity can combine to result in loose saggy skin, or a loss of tone in the thigh area.
Fortunately, Dr. Ali offers the newest, most advanced non-invasive, minimally-invasive and surgical fat loss treatments for getting thinner, tighter, more toned thighs! In this 2 part article we discuss the top 4 fat loss treatments for improving the look and feel of your thighs.
Non-Invasive CoolSculpting Fat Loss for Thinner Thighs
Through CoolSculpting, Detroit-area patients are able to get thinner thighs by physically removing fat from the treatment area itself. A single CoolSculpting fat loss treatment is enough to yield results of up to 25% thinner thighs.
The first step towards thinner thighs with CoolSculpting involves applying a handheld applicator to the treatment area, which uses mild suction to pull bulges of fat into itself. The applicator then lowers the temperature of the treatment area to freezing, causing the fat cells to be permanently destroyed.
Then, through the body’s natural elimination process, the dead fat cells are removed from the body. Since this is a gradual process, it typically takes patients several weeks to notice having significantly thinner thighs. But since the body cannot produce new fat cells, once they’re destroyed, they are gone for good.
For about 5 to 6 months after CoolSculpting fat loss treatment, the body will continue to eliminate dead fat cells, continuously providing Detroit area patients with thinner and thinner thighs.
The best way to maintain results from CoolSculpting is to live a healthy lifestyle and to avoid substantial weight gain. But since CoolSculpting is a permanent procedure, even if additional weight gain does occur, it will not be gained in the treatment area. This means that patients who visit AMAE Med Spa for CoolSculpting can walk away from their procedure with permanently thinner thighs.
2. Minimally-Invasive Liposuction Fat Loss for Thinner Thighs
An alternative means of attaining thinner thighs is through liposuction. Unlike CoolSculpting, which is non-invasive, liposuction is a surgical fat loss procedure.
Most instances of liposuction surgery are performed under local anesthesia. The procedure requires our Detroit area patients to receive a small incision (no larger than 3mm), but patients nonetheless do not require stitches, and are able to attain noticeably thinner thighs without practically any scarring.
While CoolSculpting patients get thinner thighs through the body’s natural elimination process, during liposuction, fat cells are physically sucked out of the body. As a result, liposuction patients typically only require one single procedure to get noticeably thinner thighs.
While there is some downtime that comes along with getting thinner thighs through liposuction, patients are able to return home as early as a half hour after treatment. Additionally, patients usually only have to wait 2 to 7 days before resuming their normal daily routine. And while liposuction patients may experience some mild pain while recovering, any such discomfort is easily treatable with medication, and will gradually begin to dissipate over a 2 to 8 week period.
And while patients may experience some swelling after getting liposuction for thinner thighs, it should go down after 4 – 6 weeks. Once this occurs, results will immediately become visible, with patients able to notice having significantly thinner thighs without having to wait for the body to eliminate destroyed fat cells.
CoolSculpting and liposuction are both effective fat loss treatments to get thinner thighs, each with their own unique benefits. CoolSculpting is non-invasive and requires less downtime than liposuction, while liposuction requires fewer treatments and produces more immediately visible fat loss results. At AMAE Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in the Detroit area, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali helps all of his patients select a fat loss treatment plan that best suits their needs.
