Many men have issues with stubborn belly fat and man breasts (also known as gynecomastia) that can be difficult to get rid of even with diet and exercise. This process can be frustrating and cause a lack of self confidence, which can lead to embarrassment in some cases. This is where CoolSculpting comes in…

Exercising is a great way to increase the number of calories you burn and lose weight. However, there are some stubborn areas that just don’t want to lose fat, such as the belly. Improving your nutritional habits and  calorie intake can help but in some cases may not be enough.

COOLSCULPTING ELITE®  is a non-invasive, FDA-approved solution that aids in reducing fat in both men and women, with men specifically loving the results it provides in the chest and stomach. With over 18,000 men seeking breast reduction treatment to minimize excess body fat each year, this may be an option if you’re looking to accelerate fat loss around the pectorals and abdomen.


Why man breasts and belly fat are common trouble areas for men

For many men, excess tissue commonly accumulates in the pectoral and abdominal muscles as they age or gain weight. There are two types of tissue that can contribute to the appearance of man breasts and belly fat over time: adipose tissue (body fat) and glandular tissue.

While any man can experience excess adipose tissue with weight gain, excess glandular tissue is a specific medical condition known as gynecomastia. Gynecomastia refers to enlarged male breast tissue caused by hormonal imbalances, certain medications, and medical conditions. Gynecomastia is the most common male breast disorder and affects between 50 to 65% of men worldwide.

If you’re noticing man breasts and belly fat, it’s crucial to speak with your primary care physician. There are 2 possible causes of excess glandular tissue in the breasts: true gynecomastia and pseudo gynecomastia. The former is a serious medical condition, whereas the latter is simply excess weight accumulation in specific areas of the body such as the chest or stomach. It is important to consult a doctor before beginning CoolSculpting® ELITE treatment because breast reduction surgery cannot remove all excess glandular tissue.

What is CoolSculpting® ELITE?

Pioneered by Allergan Aesthetics, CoolSculpting® ELITE uses cryolipolysis technology to freeze and destroy fat cells selectively. Cryolipolysis delivers controlled cooling to specific pockets of unwanted body fat, such as man breasts and belly fat. These fat cells, which are then frozen and naturally filtered out over time, disappear until they’re no longer visible.

Benefits for men

Diet and exercise can help men lose or maintain their weight and achieve an active lifestyle; however, man breasts and belly fat can be significantly more difficult to reduce. With more than 7 million treatments performed worldwide, CoolSculpting for men has become an increasingly popular option to help improve the contours of the chest and stomach.

Likewise, this is one of the only FDA-approved methods to get rid of man breasts and belly fat with minimal pain and no downtime. Non-invasive and safe, CoolSculpting® ELITE can be performed in under an hour, plus you can return to work or your typical daily activities immediately after treatment.

Results of CoolSculpting® ELITE treatment

CoolSculpting’s fat-freezing technology has been scientifically proven to reduce pockets of unwanted, stubborn body fat in the chest and abdomen in just one session. On average, men who receive CoolSculpting treatment experience up to a 25% reduction in fat layer thickness after a single session, with a 2mm reduction around the abdomen post-treatment.

How does coolsculpting on men’s chest and stomach work? 

First, a CoolSculpting specialist applies a thin layer of gel across the treatment area. Next, the specialist will place a CoolSculpting applicator cup on the skin above the pocket of unwanted fat. The applicator cup will cool the area to between 30° and 39° Fahrenheit to freeze the underlying fat cells.

Once the fat cells are frozen, your body will recognize them as injured and gradually filter them out of the treatment area. As the fat cells are frozen and destroyed, the pockets of fat will begin to shrink. Your body will continue to process the frozen fat cells for weeks to months after your CoolSculpting procedure, though you may experience results as early as four weeks post-treatment. More significant results are seen four to six months post-treatment.

Am I a candidate for coolsculpting on the chest and stomach?

CoolSculpting® ELITE for men CoolSculpting does not treat  gynecomastia. Gynecomastia cannot be treated with CoolSculpting, and will require further clinical intervention by a professional. The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting on the chest and stomach would be an individual who is active, has a healthy diet and exercise routine, and is able to support fat loss.
