If you get CoolSculpting of inner and outer thighs at the same time, would you expect a 40% reduction in overall thigh size?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A Q. Since you are getting a 20% reduction (ideal) in both inner and outer, would you expect a total 40% smaller thigh? How does that work? A.  ​CoolSculpting (CS) is tried and true and will reduce the fat cell volume by up to 20% of the fat contained within the suction cup applicators between the cooling panels. If the CoolSmooth applicator with a single cooling panel which was developed for the outer thigh is used, up to 10% fat loss is anticipated. ​ ​The thigh like any body part consists of other tissues including skin, fascia, muscle, bone, etc to make up its volume. ​Performing CS on opposite sides of the thigh with limited fat reduction of the subcutaneous fat only and by the surface area under the cooling panels only will not reduce total thigh volume by adding “20% + 20% to equal 40%. To reduce the circumference of the thigh, a ring of subcutaneous fat must be reduced as well. ​ ​Depending on the volume of fat and contours of your thighs, you may wish to consider surgical lipocontouring to better meet your desires. ​ ​Please consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who provides both of these options so you may receive a better assessment and recommendations. ​ ​I wish you the best! Happy Holidays!
