CoolSculpting for Men: Freeze Belly Fat and Love Handles Away for Good

CoolSculpting is the name brand for a medical procedure called cryolipolysis. More and more men are choosing CoolSculpting as a non-surgical option to target unwanted fat. We love CoolSculpting because of how safe and effective it is.



But let’s rewind, before CoolSculpting was FDA cleared, the options for body contouring were: live with it, or liposuction it. For most men, liposuction seems like a dramatic decision. There’s downtime and risks associated with surgery and for most men… Those stubborn pockets of fat just aren’t worth the risk, time, and money of a surgical procedure.



Then in 2009, the FDA cleared CoolSculpting – a nonsurgical way to use controlled cooling to target and eliminate unwanted fat for men and women. It’s gained a lot of popularity since then and is more mainstream than ever today.

When men find out they can freeze away unwanted fat, they’re usually fascinated. It almost sounds too good to be true. They hear about it online or from a friend, then start their internet research. We’ve got tons of info across our website on how CoolSculpting works, before and after photos, or would love to talk one-on-one when you’re ready to take the next step and schedule a male CoolSculpting virtual consultation.



How CoolSculpting for Men Works

Fat is hyper-sensitive to cold. We know this because butter is soft on the counter and hard in the fridge. This simple principle is the foundation of how CoolSculpting works. Using controlled cooling, we can target fat cells using the CoolSculpting technology and change the texture of the fat cell, which triggers natural programmed cell death. Over the course of three weeks to three months, your body naturally flushes out on average 20-25% of the treated fat leaving you with a more sculpted physique. Results are long term and you can continue sculpting for a more dramatic reduction.


How long will male CoolSculpting results take? How long do results last?

Results develop slowly as the fat is flushed out. Most men notice a difference between two and three months after treatment. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. It’s important to remember it’s not a weight-loss treatment; it’s a fat-reduction treatment. Your remaining fat cells will still function as normal, being subject to getting bigger and smaller depending on weight gain and weight loss (which allows you to gain and lose weight naturally across the body).



How much will CoolSculpting for Men cost?

The cost for CoolSculpting in Dallas will vary from practice to practice, but at Element Body Lab you should expect to pay an average of $600 per “cycle” or per applicator. How many cycles you need depends on your anatomy and your goals.


You can check out our CoolSculpting Price page or sign up to receive our cost guide to help answer this question, but the best & most accurate way to know your treatment cost is to schedule a free consultation with our team (book online here).


Most CoolSculpting treatments cost between $2,000 and $5,000 for male clients but vary depending on the body area.



What areas can men treat with CoolSculpting?

Since its initial FDA clearance in 2009 to the flanks (aka love handles), CoolSculpting has received nine total FDA clearances across the body. The places most commonly treated by men include the abdomen (belly fat), the love handles (a.k.a. the muffin top), the double chin, and the male chest.


One great aspect of CoolSculpting is how the treatment can be customized to your unique anatomy. Schedule a free virtual consultation with our team to learn more about the treatment areas.


CoolSculpting is FDA cleared in most of those places – with the exception of the male chest. We can talk about male chest CoolSculpting or any other area in a one-on-one consultation.

The priority for most male clients at Element Body Lab are the abdomen and love handles. The 360 degree wrap around the midsection where the pants sit – that’s our favorite CoolSculpting transformation in men!



Why More Men Are Getting CoolSculpting Treatment

Men have just as many social norms today. We all want to look good in and out of our clothes. The pressure has never been more significant to look slim, fit, chiseled, and strong. And the thing about CoolSculpting is… You can remove the fluffy layer of fat that lies above the muscle wall to reveal all of your hard work at the gym.



And more men than ever for choosing CoolSculpting because of how mainstream the treatment has become, and all of the science backing up the technology. Almost half of our patient demographic are men, which is unusual in the “aesthetic” industry, but makes sense when you think about the treatment and outcomes.



Men are more likely to choose a non-surgical treatment for fat reduction than women, because they can take the credit themselves and because there’s no downtime. You come in for your CoolSculpting treatment, go back to normal life, and take all the credit yourself. No one has to know you had any “work done“ and you can look like you’ve just lost a few pounds on your own! 




CoolSculpting and how it works are not gender-specific. CoolSculpting uses suction and non-suction handpieces to target and kill unwanted pockets of fat between the chin and knees. There are five different sizes of handpieces available from the CoolSculpting technology – allowing you to customize your treatment plan based on your unique anatomy.



Depending on your height, your weight, your fat distribution, and your ideal outcome, your treatment plan will be customized. CoolSculpting is a tool – like scissors to a hairdresser. All hairdressers your scissors, but not all haircuts are good. You need a good provider with an artistic eye AND an understanding of the science behind the fat freezing technology in order to achieve excellent results.



That’s why so many men choose Element Body Lab – the Dallas CoolSculpting Experts. Because CoolSculpting is all we do. We’re experts on the technology and can explain the intricacies behind the science of freezing fat, but we’re also artistic in nature and design a treatment plan based on your ideal outcome and goals you have so you’re looking slim, trim, and fit with no downtime required.



To take the next steps – schedule your virtual consultation with our team. Our scheduling software will have you upload a photo of the area you’re interested in treating. We will discuss treatment plans based on clients we’ve previously sculpted in Dallas with CoolSculpting so you can visualize an expected outcome.



From there, we can schedule your CoolSculpting treatment day and give you all the advice you’ll need to be well prepared to freeze your fat.



Virtual consultations allow you to save time and effort. It eliminates the need for multiple trips to the office – so you can only have to be out of office or your regular day-to-day life one time – on treatment day!



Great news for male CoolSculpting clients – there’s no downtime and no prep work before or after your CoolSculpting treatment. Expect to be a little sore (like an intense workout) after your treatment and to double your water intake. Otherwise, return to your normal day-to-day activities – whether that be at the office, at the gym, or whatever else your busy life entails. (Full safety info here.)



If you still have any questions about unwanted fat or whether CoolSculpting would be right for you – take the next step and schedule your virtual consultation. There’s no pressure, no judgment, and consultations are virtual and free, so all you had to lose is unwanted fat and you never have to leave the comfort of your chair!



CoolSculpting for Men Reviews


It’s important to not just take it from us, but to hear a few other resources too! CoolSculpting has been reviewed by the LA Times, Bloomberg, Men’s Health Magazine, GQ and Men’s Fitness. Highlights from these articles include:


  • LA Times – “43% of body-contouring patients are men looking to rid themselves of love handles and male breasts. As with other body-contouring treatments, CoolSculpting is no quick fix, but rather a very gradual reduction”.
  • Bloomberg – “these procedures are becoming viewed by men as a method of self-enhancement, like eating well, wearing nice clothes, or going to the gym.” For Bloomberg readers who want to ditch love handles and belly fat, “the fix: CoolSculpting.”
  • Men’s Fitness – “[CoolSculpting] helps you lose fat in areas that you haven’t been able to hit through diet and exercise.”
