6 Common CoolSculpting Areas for Men

Despite months of healthy diet and exercise, there might still be some stubborn fat left in different parts of the body. Non-invasive fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting are becoming more popular because they’re safer than surgical procedures. This treatment also works for men as well as it does for women.

So what areas do men use CoolSculpting for? CoolSculpting is a useful fat reduction treatment that works best on the abdomen, chest, love handles, chin, thighs, and upper arms. Men who suffer from pseudo-gynecomastia (fatty man boobs) also use this treatment to get rid of the excess fat and achieve a sculpted chest.

6 Ideal Treatment Areas for Men

More men are becoming more interested in the idea of utilizing cosmetic treatments to improve their appearance. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there were around 1.3 million cosmetic procedures performed on men in 2019.

Non-invasive fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting are also starting to gain popularity among men. Mostly because CoolSculpting is a lot more convenient than working out in the gym for months just to get that ideal body shape. If you’re interested in trying out CoolSculpting for yourself, here are the most common treatment areas for men:

1. Abdomen

The abdomen is a popular treatment area for men and women. Men want to remove the belly fat that hangs over the swimming trunks or makes it hard for them to button shirts. It takes months of following a healthy diet and strict exercise to get rid of the belly fat completely, but it only takes a few CoolSculpting treatments for noticeable results to show.

2. Chest

Perfectly chiseled chests are a sign of masculinity, which is why men usually seek body contouring treatments to remove the fat in this area. However, sculpted chests are not easy to achieve because there are a lot of factors to consider. While man boobs are usually caused by excess fat in the treatment area, some of them might be a result of hormonal issues. Find out if CoolSculpting the right solution for man boobs by consulting with an expert today.

3. Love Handles

The flanks or the love handles are difficult to target with just diet and exercise. The sides of the body are the last ones to experience transformation, which is why most people choose to remove them through non-invasive fat reduction treatments instead. CoolSculpting works for love handles as long as the pinchable fat around that area is enough to hold the device. CoolSculpting for love handles is best combined with treatments for the abdomen for a more sculpted appearance.

4. Chin

The double chin is caused by sagging skin in the neck area or the lump of fat in the submental region. If the softness under the chin is caused by unwanted fat, non-invasive fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting are the best option. CoolSculpting uses a special device called “CoolMini” that’s specially designed to perfectly fit under the chin. This allows the fat freezing treatment to work better for a perfectly sculpted jawline.

5. Thighs

CoolSculpting works for both the inner and outer thighs. Inner thighs cause problems because the lack of gap in between them forces the thighs to rub together. This causes rashes to develop due to the friction between both thighs. This also results in unwanted holes on your favorite jeans because the material gets caught in between the two thighs rubbing together.

“Saddlebags,” or the unwanted bulge of fat in the outer thighs, causes the thighs to look disproportionate with the waist, hips, and legs. It also makes wearing pants difficult. Eliminating the fat in the inner and outer thighs is easy for CoolSculpting. The whole procedure usually just takes less than an hour.

6. Upper Arms

Another body part where lots of fat cells accumulate in the upper arms. The bulky biceps that men want to see whenever they flex their arms should be made of toned muscles, not bulgy unwanted fat. It takes months of gym workouts to achieve upper arms that are worth flexing, but CoolSculpting only requires a few sessions to eliminate the excess fat in this area.

Is CoolSculpting Effective for Eliminating Man Boobs?

Men who have man boobs seek body contouring or fat reduction treatments to get rid of the bulge in their chest because exercise and diet are not enough to eliminate them. CoolSculpting is a popular treatment that removes fat in different areas of the body, including the man boobs. Here’s everything you need to know first about CoolSculpting for man boobs:

Why Do I Have Man Boobs?

Gynecomastia (or man boobs) is a condition where men’s chest area is slightly bigger than normal. There are two possible reasons for this condition: the breast tissues are swollen or they’re enlarged because of hormonal imbalance.

The appearance of man boobs usually happens to newborn babies and boys going through puberty. While it isn’t a serious health concern, most men are conscious about having man boobs. It’s an embarrassing experience that affects their psychology. The man boobs usually disappear when the hormonal levels return to normal, but cosmetic and medical interventions are required for some cases.

True vs. Pseudo Man Boobs

There are two main types of man boobs and determining the specific kind helps doctors decide on which treatment is the best one. True gynecomastia occurs if the swelling is caused by hormonal changes, while pseudo-gynecomastia refers to fatty man boobs.

Our specialist examines the type of chest tissue to see if it’s glandular or fatty. If the excess tissues are glandular, we’ll refer the patient to see another specialist because the man boobs might be a result of a more serious health condition. If the chest tissues turned out to be fatty, then CoolSculpting treatments are enough to get rid of them.

Is CoolSculpting the Right Treatment for My Man Boobs?

Although CoolSculpting is a generally safe treatment for fat reduction in different parts of the body, this procedure might not be for everyone. Patients are only qualified for a CoolSculpting treatment if:

  • Their current weight is close to the ideal weight. While the treatment gives the illusion that the patient lost a lot of weight because of their improved body shape, this procedure shouldn’t be treated as a weight loss alternative.
  • They’re not diagnosed with any serious medical condition that might affect the treatment. Always consult with a physician first before trying out a new treatment.
  • They have manageable expectations about the treatment. The results of CoolSculpting are noticeable, but they’re not as dramatic as other plastic surgeries like liposuction. 

How Does CoolSculpting Get Rid of Man Boobs?

CoolSculpting is a quick and easy fat reduction treatment that works by freezing the fat cells. Once they’re destroyed, the body gradually flushes them out over a few weeks. Since it’s a non-surgical procedure, patients don’t need to worry about scarring or any major side effects.

During the treatment, the patient is asked to lie down first. A gel pad is placed over the chest or other treatment areas. The CoolSculpting technician puts the device over the chest. Patients usually feel a tugging sensation at first when the device sucks the pinchable fat. Once the fat-freezing starts, the patient experiences extreme cold in the treatment area. This sensation usually subsides as the skin becomes numb.

The whole procedure takes around an hour to complete. Once the device is removed, the technician massages the treatment area to help break down the fat and stimulate blood flow. This step is important because it improves the results of the treatment by around 60%.

The initial results of CoolSculpting usually show within a few weeks after the treatment, but it might take months to see the final results. The eliminated fat cells won’t return to the treatment area, but new fat cells might still develop. Patients are advised to follow a healthy lifestyle, diet, and exercise to maintain the results of CoolSculpting.

How Much Does CoolSculpting for Man Boobs Cost?

According to Allergan’s official website, the cost of CoolSculpting is $2,000 to $4,000 per session. CoolSculpting treatments for man boobs usually require many sessions which aren’t covered by most insurance plans. If you’re considering CoolSculpting for man boobs, be prepared to spend money out of your own pocket to get the best results.

The exact cost of CoolSculpting for man boobs depends on the provider’s location and the patient’s desired results. They need to consult with a provider first to find out the exact cost of CoolSculpting treatment for them.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "The treatment itself was not uncomfortable. Afterwords, I felt great. I didn't really notice anything for about 30 days. After day 30 until about a month later, I started noticing that my favorite jeans were not as tight anymore. I wasn't having to suck in to get them buttoned. And by that two month period after my CoolSculpting

  • "It's subtle at first, and then a month later you look and go, "Wow - It really did something!" It really moved the bar for me, and I'm feeling better about myself already. It feels so good to put on anything and know I look as good as I've ever looked. And I didn't say that or feel that when I was in my 20's, 30's, and 40's."
