CoolSculpting® For Men
Maintaining a nutritious diet of lean meats, complex carbohydrates, and fresh fruits and vegetables in combination with a disciplined fitness regimen can help keep the body in top form. Still, for many men there are certain areas—typically the “love handles,” stomach, and even the chest—that are resistant to these healthy behaviors. If you’re dissatisfied with your physique due to stubborn pockets of fat, non-surgical CoolSculpting® treatments from our experienced dermatologist, Dr. Nancy Silverberg, may be able to help.
CoolSculpting® is an advanced, non-invasive technology designed to freeze fat tissue, thereby destroying the cells. Once broken down, the cells will then be eliminated through the body’s natural metabolic processes, leaving behind a firmer, more toned-looking appearance. FDA-approved for use on the abdomen, thighs, and flanks (the area surrounding the “love handles”), CoolSculpting® is also commonly performed on the arms and chest. Unlike liposuction or similar invasive fat removal methods, CoolSculpting® does not require any needles, knives, or incisions. Furthermore, downtime is minimal; most patients can return to normal activities, including exercise, immediately following treatment.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Silverberg will determine if you’re a qualified candidate for this procedure. She’ll inform you of the potential side effects—typically redness and tenderness, with some individuals experiencing some mild bruising—as well as what to expect from the results. A single CoolSculpting® session can typically offer up to 25 percent reduction in fat over the course of several weeks. She will also let you know how many treatments will be necessary to best achieve your desired goals. In some cases, one session can be sufficient!
CoolSculpting® works gradually over a period of weeks to months, so you don’t have to worry about friends and family recognizing a sudden change in your appearance. Instead, you will generally notice a progressive improvement in the contour of your body.
