Saddle Bag Q & A

What are saddlebags?

Saddlebags are deposits of fat at the tops of your thighs, just below the hips. As the name implies, they are prominent wedges of fat that stick out to the sides of your outer thigh and resemble the silhouette of a horse wearing saddlebags.

Saddlebags aren’t part of the natural curvature of your body, and can affect people who aren’t seriously overweight. In many cases, they appear when you follow a diet and exercise program to lose weight, but as the fat disappears from most of your body, it gets stuck in particular places, and for some women, that’s the top of the outer thigh.

Saddlebags can be hard to shift through diet and exercise alone and require aesthetic treatments such as body sculpture.

How can saddlebags be treated aesthetically?

You can have cosmetic surgery to remove saddlebags or undergo liposuction, both of which are effective in removing the excess fat. However, there are risks associated with having surgery or invasive procedures such as liposuction that you may wish to avoid.

These invasive procedures can be painful and you also need time to heal afterward, but the staff of specialists at Achieve Body Sculpting use CoolSculpting technology instead, which is a noninvasive form of treatment with no need for surgical incisions or injections.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting technology uses a process called cryolipolysis to destroy fat cells by freezing and killing them. Your technician targets the selected fat cells with intense cold via an applicator, and the cooling treatment damages only fat cells, leaving all the surrounding tissues unharmed.

Following Coolsculpting treatment, the dead fat cells get broken down and disposed of by natural processes in your body, and can’t grow back.

How quickly does CoolSculpting work on saddlebags?

You won’t see the difference immediately, because your body has to get rid of all the dead fat cells. It may take between two and six months until you see the final result, but once the process is complete, the results are permanent.

Each treatment session takes at least three hours, with most clients needing two treatment sessions consisting of two cycles each. Treatments take place no less than two weeks apart, after which you’ll begin to see the changes taking place.

There’s nothing wrong with having feminine curves, but saddlebags aren’t in proportion to your natural body shape and distort the outline even in slender women. The caring professionals at Achieve Body Sculpting can help you lose your saddlebags, so give them a call today, or book an appointment online.
