How To Stop Saddlebags

Do you work out and eat healthy but still have stubborn saddlebags? Unfortunately you may be genetically predisposed to fat in certain areas, but you don’t have to live with it forever.

Say Goodbye to Thunder Thighs
CoolSculpting, a noninvasive procedure that permanently destroys fat using a cooling technology, has a new applicator, CoolSmooth, that was made to specifically target the outer thighs and saddlebags. “Because these areas have typically been difficult to treat, the device was designed with a flat surface to easily conform to the body,” says Independence, OH, plastic surgeon Nicholas R. Husni, MD. “A protective gel pad covers the skin and the applicator lays on top of it, chilling the area to freeze and eliminate unwanted fat cells. It takes two hours to treat each saddlebag area, and many patients see great results after just one session.”
