CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring method that helps you eliminate stubborn, unwanted pockets of fat without discomfort or downtime. As the innovative procedure has been gaining momentum with female patients, men are also starting to take advantage of the many benefits offered by this treatment. If you are a man that is not completely satisfied with his body contour, due to a stubborn muffin top, love handles or even man boobs, CoolSculpting might be the solution you are looking for.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis, or a targeted cooling process, to freeze fat cells for easy elimination from the body. Freezing temperatures target fat cells via a contoured suction device that is placed on the surface of the skin in the area of stubborn fat, leaving surrounding skin and tissue untouched. There are no needles, incisions or anesthesia to worry about, ensuring an effective procedure without the need for pain medication or a recovery period afterward.CoolSculpting can eliminate bulges and pockets of fat on men in the following areas:
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment and is usually recommended for patients of average weight with isolated pockets of fatty tissue. Those areas often do not respond to diet and exercise, so a cosmetic procedure may be needed to put the final touch on your body contouring efforts. The procedure may help you lose up to 25 percent of the body fat in a select area per treatment. Additional treatments will further reduce the fat in a previously treated area.
About the Procedure
A single CoolSculpting session takes approximately one hour to complete, per treatment area. A gel pad is applied to protect the skin from the cold temperatures and no medication is required prior to treatment. Patients may feel some tightness at the beginning of the procedure, but are often comfortable enough to read, work on a laptop or even nap during treatment.
After the treatment, men are able to return to work and other activities right away. There are no restrictions on activities after the procedure, so you can even head from our office to the gym if you choose. Initial results are apparent usually within 2-3 weeks following the procedure and continue to improve in subsequent months. The maximal result is usually seen by 3-4 months post-treatment. The treated area will appear smoother and firmer, with a leaner body contour overall.
