Get Rid of Stubborn Fat

Getting rid of stubborn fat can be frustrating, especially if you go to the gym regularly and eat a healthy diet. While it can be nearly impossible for most men to target some areas of excess fat with diet and exercise, there is a simple non-invasive aesthetic treatment that can help — CoolSculpting®.

Transformations Plastic Surgery is proud to offer CoolSculpting® for men at our Rockford, Illinois location. If you’d like more information about this or any of the other male-tailored services we offer at our practice, contact us today!

How does it Work?

Using the power of controlled cooling, CoolSculpting® helps destroy and remove excess fat cells from the body. Because fat cells have a higher freezing temperature than the surrounding tissues, the treatment area is left unharmed.

Following a CoolSculpting® session, patients may experience redness, swelling, numbness, tingling, stinging, or pain in the treatment area. Fortunately, these side effects typically resolve on their own within a few weeks of receiving treatment.

During treatment, cooling temperatures are delivered to the patient’s desired treatment area through a special applicator. This applicator is left in place for an hour on each treatment area. During this time, patients are encouraged to relax, read, watch Netflix, check their emails, or even take a nap. While some patients experience a small degree of discomfort during treatment, most are able to tolerate it with little difficulty.

How can CoolSculpting® for Men Benefit You?

Unlike dermal fillers, Permalip® doesn’t require multiple visits to the office in order to be efficient. Many people have been able to see long-lasting results after a single treatment. The size of the silicon implant used for Permalip® is also adjustable, meaning that a patient can tailor the treatment to meet their specific cosmetic goals.

Despite being called Permalip®, this treatment is also completely reversible in case you end up being unsatisfied with the results.
