There’s no shortage of swimsuit weather days here in Hollywood, FL. For that reason, Dr. Christopher Brooks of Brooks Plastic Surgery knows how important it is to feel about your physique. Even with a healthy diet and regular exercise, most men (and women) still have their share of stubborn fat pockets.
CoolSculpting®, a non-invasive, science-backed fat-loss treatment offers dramatic results without downtime.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting is very simple: The procedure freezes your fat cells to kill them. This process, called cryolipolysis, has been extensively studied by researchers and proven to be an effective method for reducing body fat.
It works because fat cells are particularly susceptible to the effects of freezing temperatures. In contrast, your other nearby body tissues are not — so CoolSculpting doesn’t damage your skin or other cells. Once the fat cells die, they don’t regenerate, so your results are permanent as long as you maintain your body weight.
How can CoolSculpting benefit men?
Men love CoolSculpting because it works. Research has shown that CoolSculpting patients lose up to 28.5 percent of body fat in treated areas. So if you have stubborn pockets of fat that won’t respond to your exercise and diet efforts, CoolSculpting can be the push you need to reach your aesthetic goals.
CoolSculpting can help men with several trouble areas, including the chin, jawline, thighs, abdomen, lower back, upper arm, and underarm (around the lat muscles).
This gentle procedure can be the tool that helps you achieve the lean, muscular body you desire. But looks aren’t the only thing — CoolSculpting can improve your self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as encourage you to keep up your healthy lifestyle because you won’t want to undo your results.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
Yes. CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that requires no downtime. You won’t need anesthesia, so you can drive yourself home after your procedure and get right back to your daily activities, including exercise (to support your new lean body!).
Side effects are rare and typically very mild when they do occur — you might experience tenderness or redness on the skin of your treatment area.
It takes some time for your body to flush out all of the treated fat cells. You’ll start to notice subtle changes within a couple of days, but optimal results appear about three months after your treatment.
Note that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss procedure. It works best for people who already maintain a healthy weight and need help with trouble areas, and it’s not intended for people who need to lose a lot of weight. You’ll also experience more dramatic results if you continue to eat healthily and exercise regularly.
