Does CoolSculpting Work for Gynecomastia?

CoolSculpting male breast

If you are a man living with enlarged breasts (called gynecomastia), you should first know that this condition is more common than most people think. Men all over the world suffer from this condition, which results in too much male breast tissue and/or excessive fat deposits in the chest area. This can not only be uncomfortable but demoralizing as well. While gynecomastia can have a profound effect on the quality of a man's life and self-esteem (particularly in teens), there is no reason for anyone to suffer. With advancing cosmetic treatments, there are more options than ever to change the appearance of the male breast and improve the self-confidence of any man suffering from gynecomastia.

Among the latest innovations in tissue reduction is CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is a remarkable new procedure that is approved by the FDA to reduce the appearance of fat tissue on the body. Because of this, CoolSculpting has experienced a swell of popularity. From CoolSculpting men's love handles to the reduction of belly fat, this powerful treatment is effective and noninvasive. With all this, you may wonder, does CoolSculpting work for gynecomastia?

To answer that question, it is important to first understand the way CoolSculpting works. CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical procedure that gets rid of fat by using controlled cooling to eliminate its appearance. Essentially, CoolSculpting freezes away fat tissue in an easy, noninvasive procedure that can attack even the most stubborn fat deposits. However, there is a critical difference between fat tissue and other types of tissue found throughout the body. CoolSculpting is not as effective against denser tissue like that found in the human breast. Because of this, CoolSculpting man breast tissue may not be fully effective in some cases and is considered an off-label use of this technology.

Even though CoolSculpting may not be a definitive cure, it is often a useful tool for those who deal with this difficult condition. In many cases, fat tissue may be a compounding factor in gynecomastia. Therefore, men may see positive results by using CoolSculpting in that area. In fact, CoolSculpting can be a good place to start for a cosmetic overhaul since it is nonsurgical and has virtually no recovery time. Many men use CoolSculpting for gynecomastia while targeting other parts of their body at the same time. If more reduction is still needed, other treatments can be used at a later time.

Ultimately, it is important to discuss CoolSculpting for gynecomastia and other potential treatments with a certified aesthetic professional. This way, it is possible to create a cosmetic plan to deal with gynecomastia and reclaim your confidence and your life. Schedule a consultation and find out if CoolSculpting is right for you.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation


Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

March 23rd, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until Mid April.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until further notice.
  • The office will be available for Retail and PrePaid Packages as well as to answer any and all questions and concerns.
  • Virtual Consultations are available upon request.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
