CoolSculpting in SacramentoWomen aren’t the only ones who want to look slim, youthful and attractive. Plenty of men desire a sleeker and more sculpted appearance to boost confidence and improve the way they are perceived by others.

At The Plastic Surgery Center, our mission is to help men and women achieve their cosmetic goals in the safest and most effective way possible. If we can do that through a minimally invasive treatment, it’s even better.

We have found CoolSculpting to be a great body sculpting option for men who want real body contouring results without surgery. There are no incisions, anesthesia or downtime needed.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting capitalizes on the concept that fat cells are very susceptible to cold energy. The treatment uses a technology called cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells in selective areas of your body. CoolSculpting technology is so precise that it is able to accomplish this without affecting your skin, muscles or nerves.

In the weeks following a CoolSculpting treatment, the destroyed cells are eliminated from your body through natural waste removal processes. The treated area starts to look slimmer and more toned, almost as if you were sculpting it naturally through diet and exercise.

CoolSculpting treatment is a fast, minimally invasive treatment. During a session, the CoolSculpting handpiece is passed over the target area; it almost feels like an ice pack is being applied to the skin, but it is not painful. Treatment takes an hour or so, depending on the size of the area being treated. After the session, you can immediately resume your normal activities.

Common CoolSculpting Treatment Areas for Men

Men commonly seek out CoolSculpting to slim the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Chest (for enlarged male breasts)
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Double chin
  • Area under the jawline

Are the Results Permanent?

CoolSculpting reduces the number of fat cells in the treated area but does not remove all of them. But once the fat cells have been eliminated from your body, they cannot grow back. The remaining fat cells may get bigger or smaller if you gain or lose weight after CoolSculpting treatment.
