There is good news for those men who do not feel that a ‘dad bod’ represents the vital, energetic individual that exists inside, and for what ever reason, surgery is not an option. Despite attempts to maintain your physique through exercise and consistent dieting, you may be stuck with a stubborn beer belly, love handles bulging over your belt or flabby arms that hide the muscles you’ve been working so hard for.

Those problem spots aren’t sticking around because you aren’t putting in enough effort — what’s preventing you from achieving the body you want are fat deposits that don’t respond to exercise and diet. These fat deposits build up over a lifetime and can be found in various areas on the body, including the abdomen, chest, legs, arms and chin. They’re frustrating, unflattering and prevent you from showing off a masculine physique — but they’re treatable. It’s time to say bye-bye dad bod.

CoolSculpting for men is an excellent way to improve your appearance and rid yourself of pesky fat deposits, simply by freezing them. A series of these treatments can provide a slimmer, fitter appearance with greater muscle definition. CoolSculpting is a noninvasive office treatment and requires no downtime. To learn more about CoolSculpting, men in Lake Forest and the surrounding areas of Illinois are invited to schedule a consultation with Dr. Terrasse of Terrasse Aesthetic Surgery.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a popular noninvasive treatment that uses a process known as ‘cryolipolysis’ to freeze fat cells. The treated cells are destroyed and gradually flushed out of the body, leaving behind a healthier and fitter physique. CoolSculpting is unique because, unlike some other fat removal procedures, it requires no incisions or anesthesia and there is extremely minimal risk of harm to any surrounding skin, tissues, nerve, or muscles.

A CoolSculpting treatment involves placing cooling panels on the skin where fat removal is desired. While they’re applied, the panels deliver controlled cooling to fat cells deep beneath the skin, causing them to crystallize and eventually die. These fat cells are then naturally disposed of by the body’s lymphatic system. It’s safe, versatile and, most importantly, effective.

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat-reduction treatment that was developed by Harvard Medical School scientists in 2008. Since its inception, CoolSculpting has gone on to become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world.

Ideal Candidates for CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting can be performed on men of any skin tone or type who are in reasonably good shape. While it is a fat-reduction technology, it isn’t meant for overall weight loss. The treatment should be thought of as an aid if you’re having trouble getting rid of localized fat deposits, not a treatment for obesity. CoolSculpting works best for patients who are at or near their target weight. A body mass index (BMI) of less than 25 is typically recommended. The treatment works on patients with a BMI of around 25 to 30, but will require more sessions to achieve visible results.

The CoolSculpting Procedure

During the CoolSculpting treatment, you’ll relax comfortably, either lying down or sitting, and be able to read, take a nap, watch TV or scroll through your phone or lap top. CoolSculpting is a generally comfortable experience that takes approximately 35 minutes to one hour, depending on how many areas are being treated.

Once you’re comfortable, your provider will apply the appropriate noninvasive applicators to your skin where you have unwanted fat bulges. The applicators will use suction to hold the treated area next to the cooling plates, then deliver controlled cooling to fat cells underneath the skin, causing them to freeze and eventually die. The skin naturally goes numb due to this cooling effect, so the CoolSculpting treatment generally requires no anesthetic. You may initially feel a slight pinching sensation that will go away as your skin numbs.

After the CoolSculpting applicators have been in place for long enough, your provider will remove them and massage the treated area to encourage dead fat cells to break apart and shape the skin to its new contours. You may return home or engage in most daily activities immediately after the procedure.

CoolSculpting Recovery and Results

Tenderness may be experienced immediately after your CoolSculpting treatment, along with redness, swelling or bruising. These are normal side effects and should subside after several days or a couple of weeks. There is no required downtime after CoolSculpting. You’re free to hit the gym, get back to work, hang with the boys or play rowdy with the kids.

You may notice results after just one CoolSculpting session, but won’t see the most significant improvements right away. Your body needs time to remove the dead fat cells through the lymphatic system. After approximately two to four months, dramatic results will be visible. Clothes will fit better, you’ll appear noticeably more fit and have increased confidence to accompany your new physique. Depending on your goals and your BMI, additional CoolSculpting treatments may be needed to achieve your goals. Many patients desire at least two to three treatments.

Your newly contoured body should be long-lasting. The dead fat cells are long gone and won’t return. However, it’s still important to regularly exercise and keep up a healthy diet to maintain your results. Although the treated fat cells are gone, fat cells that weren’t removed can expand, causing unsightly fat bulges to reappear. Patients are encouraged to live a healthy life to maintain their new appearance.
