From love handles to male breasts, CoolSculpting is gaining popularity with men in NYC, and around the United States and Europe too. Whether getting ready for the summer months, or shedding off the excess winter weight, no matter what we do, even with our diet and exercise plans – sometimes various fat deposits linger. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that can help you get past that last hurdle.
Ideal for men who want to stay active with no down-time, CoolSculpting’s non-surgical method can be done on a walk-in basis. It requires no needles, no incisions, no anesthesia, and does not affect surrounding tissue, nerves or muscles, which means you can even do it during your lunch break. In many cases, patients even take the time to read a book or watch a movie while receiving treatment.
Dr. Michele S. Green is a board certified NYC dermatologist and can help you sculpt various areas of your body such as the abdomen, flanks, arms and legs. The CoolSculpting procedure helps reduce over 25% of fat in these hard to eliminate areas. In some cases, CoolSculpting is used by men to reduce gynecomastia, which is an enlargement of the male breast area.
How does CoolSculpting work?
The CoolSculpting device naturally destroys fat cells by exposing them to cold temperatures. The body then absorbs the fat over the subsequent months. The procedure is also known as “cryolipolysis” or “fat freezing”, and this process stimulates the body to remove layers of fat cells through its natural metabolic functions over time.
If you have questions about CoolSculpting, we encourage you to read our CoolSculpting® FAQs to see what common questions we get about the treatment and get ideas on the results that it can achieve.
Are there any risks from CoolSculpting?
As the procedure is non-invasive, you can continue with your normal daily activities immediately after your CoolSculpting procedure. Some male patients have reported a some swelling in the first 24 hours, or some minor bruising, but these fade away within days. A healthy diet and active lifestyle should be maintained after the procedure. In a few rare cases, there is a temporary numbness or swelling that may persist for a few weeks.
Overall, results can take four months to start showing a visible impact. Sometimes a series of treatments – each scheduled a few months apart are recommended. That said, every case is different, and you should discuss this with Dr. Michele S. Green beforehand.
