Gynecomastia, the condition of excess male breast tissue that is sometimes lovingly referred to as man boobs, is both frustrating and embarrassing. Large male breasts are generally covered up with loose fitting t-shirts and then forgotten about, because no amount of diet or exercise can make them disappear.
While there are extremely effective surgical procedures for gynecomastia available today, many men are still leery of invasive male breast reduction procedures. Well, surgery-shy men take notice; non-surgical CoolSculpting has the ability to shrink man boobs in only an hour.
Chest Sculpting with CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary new procedure using cold temperatures to your advantage. The technique places a small CoolSculpting paddle over the pockets of male breast tissue, freezing the fat cells. While the skin and healthy tissue is unaffected, the cold temperatures break down fat cell walls, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. In two to three weeks, the initial changes in breast tissue can be seen, although it will take three to four months for peak fat elimination results to appear.
The cool temperatures numb the effected area of the chest, making CoolSculpting a painless procedure. The process takes one hour, and as there are no incisions, holds almost no chance for complications or scarring. Men can be back to their normal routine immediately – including active work and physical activities.
How do you know if CoolSculpting is right for you?
CoolSculpting is not for everyone with gynecomastia. The results are not immediate. The procedure will eliminate about 20% of fat cells, so a repeat treatment is often recommended for optimal results. Men who are looking for faster benefits may want to opt for the semi-invasive liposuction procedure. Additionally, those man boobs cause by excess glandular tissue will require a surgical breast reduction. The only way to know for sure if CoolSculpting will work for you is through a consultation appointment with an experienced provider.
If you answer yes to the following questions, it is possible that CoolSculpting could be the right procedure to eliminate your man boobs:
- Do you have small to moderate male breasts?
- Are your male breasts NOT the result of obesity?
- Are your male breasts primarily composed of fatty tissue?
- Do you have little to no desire for a surgical male breast reduction procedure?
- Are you OK with waiting four to eight weeks to see your results?
