Over time, fat can collect on the chest giving some men the appearance of enlarged breasts otherwise known as Pseudo-gynecomastia (excessive fat on man’s chest).
CoolSculpting is a popular fat freezing procedure that destroys fat cells by safely freezing them to the point of elimination. Also known as Cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting does not require any injections, incisions, or a long recovery period making it a highly sought-after procedure among many men who want to transform their body without surgery.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared fat reduction procedure that uses a controlled cooling device to eliminate stubborn fat in targeted areas. What makes CoolSculpting so unique is that it is able to reduce fat in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise, such as the abdomen and male breasts.
The results of this safe fat removal technique are noticeable, proven, and long-lasting. During the procedure, the treated fat cells are crystalized causing them to undergo a process called “apoptosis” or natural cell death. The treated cells are then naturally extracted from the body as waste leaving the area slimmer and more sculpted.
How Does CoolSculpting Target Fat in Men’s Breasts
With advancements in technology, men know how the opportunity to reduce fat in the breast area without surgery. Developed by a team of physicians and scientists, CoolSculpting uses a precise cooling method to target and cool fat cells without causing damage to the surrounding tissues.
Most men will require two or more treatments to achieve optimal results. The affected fat cells may take several weeks and months to completely metabolized by the body.
Once the fat cells are eliminated, most men will see a visible difference in the size and shape of their chest area, resulting in a more masculine appearance.
What Happens During the Procedure
Before the procedure, the targeted area will be marked to determine the position where the handpiece will be placed. The size of the area will also determine which CoolSculpting handpiece will be used.
During the actual procedure, you will be comfortably sitting or lying down. A specialized handpiece will then be used to draw in the excess fat to the cooling panels. CoolSculpting works by using different handpieces specialized for different sizes of the fat tissue.
As the panels start working, you may feel a strong suction and very cold sensation that will soon dissipate. As the handpiece is attached to the area, it creates a tug-and-pull sensation that is used to cool the fat cells until they undergo cell death.
Many patients spend time reading or even taking a nap during the procedure. As the fat removal procedure is non-invasive, you can return to your normal activities immediately after. It’s normal to experience some minor redness or tingling after the procedure.
How Soon Are Results Visible?
Most patients who undergo CoolSculpting will see a visible difference in the amount of fat in their breast area in just 8 to 10 weeks. Within 3 to 4 months after the treatment, most patients will see a significant change.
As the fat cells treated during CoolSculpting are eliminated from the body, the results of the procedure are permanent. By maintaining your weight through diet and exercise, you can achieve long-term results.
Removing excess fat in the breast area can be difficult through traditional exercise routine alone. This is why our aesthetic doctor, Dr. Sylvia Ramirez, safely provides a range of non-invasive procedures designed to eliminate stubborn fat from the face and body.
