CoolSculpting for Men

Easy, convenient non-surgical fat reduction

coolsculpting-logo-350Reducing stubborn fat deposits doesn’t have to be “surgery or nothing.” CoolSculpting offers a proven, non-surgical alternative to liposuction to reduce fat and shrink unattractive bulges on the abdomen and flanks or even slim a double chin. With an 1-hour appointment and no downtime, CoolSculpting is an especially popular option for our busy male patients who want to improve their body shape.

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 cleared 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.

Among the many benefits of CoolSculpting

  • 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

Introducing the CoolMini: No More Double Chin

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 are 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.
