The Benefits of Coolsculpting for Men

Coolsculpting isn't just for women. This body contouring procedure is a nonsurgical option for men, too. If you aren't satisfied with what diet and exercise can do for your form, take a look at the reasons men should consider a coolsculpting procedure.

Nonsurgical Option

Do you have a few stubborn areas or pockets of fat you just can't seem to work off? A surgical cosmetic procedure means time off from work, anesthesia, and added risks. Instead of invasive methods that require scalpels and sutures, this body contouring process uses cooling panels to crystalize (freeze) fat cells.

You can stay awake during the procedure or relax and nap—minus the need for a medical sedative. This, combined with the noninvasive nature of the procedure, means you aren't subject to complications from anesthesia or surgery-related infections.

Quick Recovery

As a nonsurgical fat reduction option, this type of body contouring procedure has almost no recovery time. Unless the provider says otherwise, most patients can return to work, school, or their daily lives after each treatment.

Few Side Effects

Any medical or cosmetic procedure comes with risks and side effects. But in comparison to surgical options, this type of fat reduction isn't likely to cause lingering problems. Common immediate side effects include redness, tenderness, bruising, stinging, tingling, numbness, sensitivity, or mild swelling. If you have concerns about the side effects or how your body will react to the procedure, talk to the provider first. The technician can provide you with a full picture of what to expect.

Targeted Results

Are you happy with most of your body? If you have one or a few small trouble spots, coolsculpting is for you. Instead of overall fat reduction, this procedure can tighten and contour areas such as the abdomen, thighs, under the chin/upper neck, flanks, under the armpits, back, or buttocks.

Unlike diets, which can reduce overall weight, you'll know exactly where you'll lose the fat before the procedure. This makes it possible to get the results you want. While weight loss through diet changes certainly has its benefits and merits, you have no control over fat reduction. This means you could lose inches around your thighs even though belly fat is your main problem.

Are you a candidate for coolsculpting? While it may seem like this nonsurgical, non-invasive fat reduction procedure if a cosmetic option for women, men can benefit from it too. Whether you want to reduce belly fat, don't like the wobble under your chin, or want to change the shape of your thighs, talk to an expert about how cryo-contouring can help you.
