In French, this term refers originally to loose clothing intended for riding and was first used at the start of the nineteenth century. Subsequently, the shape of this garment was associated with a specific physiognomy, particularly in women.
It can be challenging today to get rid of the saddlebags. It's also the cause of a lot of hang-ups. It is possible to undergo surgery or cosmetic medicine to help you get rid of them.
Saddlebags: The causes
Saddlebags are an excess of fat on the back of the thighs and buttocks that stimulates the appearance of cellulite. They have the appearance of a fat build-up that forms hardened areas and is uncomfortable to the touch.
Saddlebags can grow early in women and shape over the course of a lifetime due to hormonal or weight fluctuations. Even women with a balanced lifestyle may have saddlebags in this way.
If you spend little energy, but your diet is rich, your body stores fat that is considered "useless". The fat mass is then retained in various parts of the body and, more precisely, in the saddlebags.
Saddlebags may also occur due to hormonal variations, such as during puberty or menopause, because women's bodies are designed to store fat in anticipation of pregnancy or breastfeeding. In this way it guarantees the development of the feotus in case of significant change.
In addition, saddlebags may also be inherited. Some are more likely than others to gain weight in their hips, buttocks and thighs.
Saddlebags: Getting rid of them
There are different approaches to help you get rid of them. Some are more invasive, others less so, but they all deliver outstanding results and will be offered to you depending on your needs and expectations.
If you have large saddlebags
If there is a large area of fat deposit in the outer thigh area, liposuction is recommended since this is a procedure that can extract the largest amount of body fat at one time.
It is also possible to perform a soft liposuction treatment, which is less invasive than traditional liposuction by sucking the fat through a cannula attached to a syringe.
For patients who do not wish to undergo surgery, cryolipolysis coolsculpting is a great alternative
If you have a small area of fat deposit in the outer thigh and cellulite
In addition to fat, if you have watery cellulite due to insufficient lymphatic drainage, the doctor will recommend the Accent Prime method that integrates ultrasound and radiofrequency, or the ONDA Coolwaves system that emits microwaves.
These different energies heat the adipose tissue and remove fat by lipolysis while treating cellulite.
Accent Prime and ONDA Coolwaves can be done in a stand-alone session or in addition to a coolsculpting session.
