THE COOLSCULPTING BENEFITS MEN WILL WANT TO KNOW ABOUT
MAY 28, 2018
It’s true that when most people hear the words “breast tissue” they immediately think of the female anatomy rather than the male- and who can blame them? While men do in fact have breasts, it’s often spoken about in terms such as their “pecs”- otherwise known as the pectoral muscles. Due to the lack of hormones in the body, most men never develop larger breasts in the same way women do- unless they have a condition known as Gynecomastia.
WHAT IS GYNECOMASTIA?
Gynecomastia is the excess or fluctuations in hormones, resulting in increased breast cells that take the shape of larger, fatty breasts for men. While there are a number of reasons men develop Gynecomastia, the main culprits known are: excess or fluctuating weight, medical conditions and puberty. In addition, the American Family Physician journal says that approximately 25% of Gynecomastia cases are caused by medications.
WHAT ARE THE TREATMENT OPTIONS?
It’s understandable that many men are embarrassed by this condition, seeking treatment options to rid themselves of the fatty breast cells and tissue that many unfortunately refer to as “man boobs.” While some men can see small improvements through lifestyle changes- incorporating more exercise, tweaking their diets and switching prescriptions- it’s important to understand that men with excessive breast tissue will likely need invasive surgery.
The good news is not all cases are due to breast tissue, but instead, are a result of fat cells- and that can absolutely be treated without going under the knife. With revolutionary technology called CoolSculpting, men can significantly minimize the size of their breasts without any pain or downtime necessary to recover.
WHAT ARE THE TREATMENT OPTIONS?
CoolSculpting works by “freezing” your fat cells using an innovative machine and applicator that specifically targets the stubborn pockets of fat you want to reduce. Following this non-invasive treatment, the cells begin to die and are naturally eliminated from your body for good!
The treatment generally lasts anywhere from 30-60 minutes and patients are free to resume normal activities immediately after. While some patients begin to see results at 6 weeks, the entire process takes a total of 12 weeks to see the unbelievable changes you’ve been waiting for.
COOLSCULPTING FOR THE TOTAL BODY WIN
While CoolSculpting is an absolute game changer for men with larger, fatty breasts, it shouldn’t be overlooked that it helps to reduce pockets of fat from other major problem areas, as well. Men (and women) can significantly reduce the fat along their mid sections, love handles, thighs, arms, chin and backs with CoolSculpting.
