Although some men don’t mind having a “dad bod,” there are many who do. In fact, they’ll go to just about any length to stay slim and trim. But as we get older, it’s not uncommon for fat to accumulate around our middles, giving us love handles and a layer of fat that just won’t disappear.

Thankfully, there is a way to say farewell to excess fat and hello to a chiseled middle. CoolSculpting is a solution for many men facing an unwanted dad bod.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that dissolves stubborn areas of fat. Cryolipolysis, or CoolSculpting, works by freezing fat cells in the treatment area. Over time, your body then eliminates the fat cells, leaving you with a sleek, more defined physique.

Tell-Tale Signs of a Dad Bod

Aside from not fitting into your swim trunks, there are other signs that CoolSculpting is right for you. Most men think of pot-belly stomachs when they think of a dad bod. However, fat can accumulate in other areas as well. Some men find that they’re carrying extra fat in the following areas as well:

  • Waist
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Neck and chin

While eating a low-fat, balanced diet and exercising regularly can help, it’s not always enough. CoolSculpting can help men whittle their middle and chisel their chins with little to no downtime.

Benefits of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that can be performed in the office. Some men may experience redness and tingling in the treatment areas, but otherwise, there are no side effects. Patients can go about their daily activities with no recovery period.

Suitable Candidates

Patients who are active and lead a healthy lifestyle are the best candidates for CoolSculpting. Dr. Sarraga ensures that every patient who chooses CoolSculpting understands how the procedure is done and what they need to do to maintain their results.

How is CoolSculpting Performed?

During your consultation, Dr. Sarraga will review your aesthetic concerns with you and discuss your goals. The day of your CoolSculpting treatment, a clear gel will be applied to protect your skin. During treatment, you may feel a slight sucking sensation. It also not uncommon to feel mild pinching, pulling, and slight stinging as the device freezes the fat cells. Following the treatment, you are able to drive yourself home or go back to work without anyone knowing you had CoolSculpting performed.

When Will I See Results?

Depending on the amount of correction needed, most patients see results within one to three months. Patients can then decide whether they want to proceed with additional CoolSculpting treatments. It is common for CoolSculpting treatment to be completed over the course of several sessions. Dr. Sarraga will advise a custom treatment plan for you after a consultation.
