To our FabOverFifty Friends: This is a sponsored post for CoolSculpting.
Dana, a recently divorced, Fab-Over-Fifty friend, works hard to keep her body in shape, and it shows. But now that she’s started dating again, the cellulite on her thighs is bothering her more than ever. “The dimples on my outer thighs never go away or even decrease, no matter how many leg exercises I’ve done over the decades. And my muffin top appeared overnight,” Dana says.
“I may sound vain, but I wouldn’t be comfortable wearing a bathing suit around the man I’m dating now, no less having him touch or see me nude.”
Although many women would be ecstatic to have bodies like Dana’s, it’s understandable that she needs all the self confidence she can get, after being out of the dating market for 23 years. “I’d like to feel as good about my body as possible,” she says. “It’s hard enough starting over.”
“Dana will be glad to know that we’re now able to reduce even saddle bags and inner thigh fat with a popular, non-surgical procedure called CoolSculpting®,” said Dr. Haideh Hirmand, a leading board certified plastic surgeon in New York. Approved by the FDA, the clinically proven, sculpting technique safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells under the skin. The treated cells are frozen, then die, and are permanently eliminated from the body over the next few months.

Besides working on the inner and outer thighs, it is approved for use on the abdominal area and flank (love handles). Not a weight-loss solution, it’s designed for anyone with unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Happily, downtime is eliminated.
“Most patients see at least a 20 percent reduction in treated areas after one session, and a series of treatments may be recommended to achieve desired results,” explains a spokesperson for the company.
A recent survey commissioned by ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc., the maker of CoolSculpting, found that 88 percent of women would like to improve one area of their bodies before considering themselves “bikini ready” or “dating ready” in Dana’s case. Many women who are in shape and leading healthy lifestyles still have “problem areas” that they would like to improve, the survey revealed. Seventy-four percent of women say their abdomen was a trouble spot and 54 percent singled out their thighs.
