Many people who are interested in body contouring have heard or read about CoolSculpting. However, not everyone knows what areas can be treated with the treatment. Over time, CoolSculpting technology has evolved with the release of new applicator sizes to allow treatment of new body areas such as the male chest. Men with fatty gynecomastia can now turn to CoolSculpting for a non-invasive way of treating their man boobs.
The smaller applicators are perfect for treating small, very localized areas of unwanted fat that have not responded to regular diet and exercise. When treating gynecomastia in the past it was not possible to do so in a completely non-invasive way until CoolSculpting. Previously, every other method involved liposuction or an incision of some kind. The new smaller applicators allow us to precisely treat the breast area without affecting the surrounding areas.
Like other areas, treating the chest with CoolSculpting allows patients to return to their daily activities immediately after treatment, unlike surgery which comes with many restrictions for weeks.
Men with gynecomastia, know the feelings of anxiety that come with wearing swimwear or tight-fitting clothing that may show or accentuate their enlarged chest. With CoolSculpting you can feel at ease and no longer feel embarrassed by your appearance. The fat cells that are eliminated are gone for good and you can enjoy your results for a long time to come.
