CoolSculpting for Men

Easy, convenient non-surgical fat reduction for men

coolsculpting-logo-350Reducing stubborn fat deposits doesn’t have to be “surgery or nothing.” CoolSculpting for men offers a proven, non-surgical alternative to liposuction for reducing fat and shrinking unattractive bulges on the abdomen and flanks. CoolSculpting can even be used to eliminate a double chin.

Why CoolSculpting works for men

Think about where most men are store excess fat. It’s typically in the abdomen, in the form of a spare tire, beer belly, or love handles. We’re genetically wired to deposit fat here. Because the body cannot naturally reduce fat cells individual cells can only grow and shrink—losing stubborn belly fat can be difficult, even with a healthy diet and rigorous exercise. This gets even harder as we age.

CoolSculpting can do what a disciplined lifestyle cannot. Using a patented, FDA-approved process called cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting can spot-reduce fat by selectively chilling fat cells to the point where they die off.

CoolSculpting is particularly effective at reducing fat in common problem areas for men: larger areas of “pinchable” fat, such as the belly, hips, and flanks, which can be drawn into the applicator for targeted fat reduction.

What are the benefits of CoolSculpting for men?

  • The procedure is 100% non-invasive with no downtime
  • Results appear gradually over 2-3 months, so it’s easy to be discreet about your fat loss
  • Fat loss with CoolSculpting is long-lasting if you maintain a stable weight
  • Most men are satisfied with the results after only 1 or 2 treatments

CoolSculpting Elite

Our Ziba Medical Spa is excited to be one of the first aesthetic practices in Eugene to offer CoolSculpting Elite. CoolSculpting Elite is the newest CoolSculpting technology that provides the fat-reducing benefits patients have come to love but applied to an 18% larger treatment area in half the time.

CoolSculpting Elite uses dual C-shaped applicators that form to the body’s natural contours to eliminate up to 25% of body fat in the same amount of time it would take a single CoolSculpting machine. CoolSculpting Elite is FDA approved to treat up to 9 areas of the body, including the thighs, abdomen, flanks, upper arms, underneath the buttocks, around the jawline, and beneath the chin. In addition to targeting a much larger portion of the body, CoolSculpting Elite can also treat 2 different areas simultaneously.

CoolSculpting Elite is ideal for men who want to eliminate stubborn body and facial fat with fewer treatments and less downtime.

CoolMini for double chin elimination

Even a small amount of excess fat beneath the chin can detract from one’s appearance, making an otherwise fit man appear older and overweight. Until recently, liposuction was the only effective cosmetic procedure to reduce fat between the chin and neck. We are pleased to offer CoolSculpting via the CoolMini, a brand new applicator designed specifically to address fat under the chin. Using the same technology and treatment method as original CoolSculpting, the CoolMini can help you get a better-defined jawline that can improve your overall appearance.

CoolSculpting vs. liposuction

We love CoolSculpting here at Movassaghi Plastic Surgery, and so do our many happy patients. But like any procedure, CoolSculpting will achieve more optimal results for some patients than others. CoolSculpting can shrink fatty bulges, but it will not significantly change the shape of an area. In contrast, liposuction can offer very precise body sculpting by removing fat in specific patterns.

CoolSculpting is an excellent, convenient, and cost-effective option for men who are generally happy with the shape of their bodies, but who want to spot-reduce in particular areas. For those who desire more extensive body reshaping, liposuction can usually achieve more dramatic improvements.

Neither liposuction nor CoolSculpting is intended to address loose, sagging skin. While there is some evidence that CoolSculpting might provide a mild skin-tightening effect for some patients, the best results are seen on those with good skin contraction. If sagging skin is a problem for you, we encourage you to consider Exilis for non-surgical body contouring, or male abdominoplasty for a surgical solution.

What is recovery like for men’s CoolSculpting?

With a 1-hour appointment and no downtime, CoolSculpting is an especially popular option for our busy male patients who want to improve their body shape. You’ll be able to return to your normal activity the same day as your treatment, but you should avoid strenuous physical activity for a few days to a week.
