Coolsculpting for Men
Compared to our early-20s selves, we tend to store more fat and gain weight today despite maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. This can be really challenging and frustrating for both women and men in Singapore who live busy lives, especially those who are doing everything to look their best and stay healthy.
It is unrealistic for someone to be in tiptop shape like models and celebrities. Most of them workout everyday and have hired personal trainers and chefs to maintain their perfectly trimmed physiques. However, despite the high-maintenance that’s required in achieving a slim and fit body, many of us aim to look like one. We do our best to squeeze in some time for workout sessions and try to eat as healthily as possible.
Unfortunately, people don’t lose weight in the same pace; some lose weight faster, others have the hardest time eliminating the extra pounds, hence many people in Singapore recommend Astique for coolsculpting due to its ease and effectiveness. It is important to know the physical differences of people in order to come up with more effective ways for easier fat-reduction process.
Anatomy of Men and Women
Men and women have different anatomic structure of stored fats. The texture and quality of stored fat in men are firmer and more fibrous compared to women’s, making it more difficult to lose through traditional weight loss methods such as regular exercise and healthy diet. Also, men’s fat is more challenging to remove through surgical treatments like liposuction, particularly in the flanks, back, and chest. On the contrary, women’s excess fat is much more ideal for surgical cosmetic procedures since they are easier to break down.
Moreover, men and women have genetically different distributions of fat cells. Men usually store fats in the mid-section, lovingly known as ‘love handles,’ while women tend to store more fat in the hips, lower abdomen, buttocks, and thighs, creating their unique curves. Additionally, every person has inherited inclination towards a particular body shape that runs in their family. For example, no matter how much weight you lose, your body shape remains an apple, pear, hourglass, or an athletic physique.
Coolsculpting for Fat-Reduction
Despite the differences, the good news is that many of our body regions can be treated with coolsculpting, a non-surgical fat-reduction procedure. However, a slight difference should be expected since men and women have different structure of fats cells.
In Singapore, coolsculpting has been a popular method for reducing body fat not just in women, but also in men. This clinically-studied and FDA-approved treatment is ideally performed in the flanks, abdomen, thighs, and mid-section for men.
The number of coolsculpting sessions recommended for men is usually different from women, with the total number of sessions especially tailored to the patient according to how much fat cells need to be removed in a certain body region.
Some areas, such as the fibrous fat in the mid-section, usually needs more than one session; while other areas like the abdomen may show significant results with just one session. The average amount of fat reduced in a single treatment among male patients in Singapore is up to 25 percent of a specific body part.
Generally, noticeable results take place within a month after the treatment, with the final results achieved in four to six months.
Candidates for Coolsculpting
Anyone who has small packets of fat that doesn’t seem to go away with exercise and diet can get a coolsculpting treatment. This is especially great for men, since melting away fibrous fat with regular exercise is more difficult compared to women. But before the treatment, you’ll have to go through the consultation process to further determine whether you are a perfect fit for the non-surgical procedure according to your goals, expectations, and health status.
Coolsculpting in Singapore works by freezing the fat cells to the point of its death. The procedure uses a targeted cooling method to freeze, kill, and eliminate fat cells in certain areas of the body. It is specifically targeted that it destroys only the fat cells, without damaging the surrounding normal cells. Once the packet of skin is securely vacuumed in the applicator, the freezing of cells begins. One area takes an hour to treat, so if you have multiple areas to do, it will take much longer time to finish.
No Recovery Period
Coolsculpting in Singapore is completely non-invasive. Therefore, you can return to your normal activities right after you walk out of the clinic. Some patients even go back to work immediately after their treatment. However, expect to experience some redness, tingling sensation, numbness, bruising, or a bit of discomfort in the treated area, which should go away in days and resolve on their own.
Results to Expect
You will start to see noticeable differences in three to four weeks after the treatment, with the full results in about four months. Results show up gradually—thus, more naturally—as the frozen fat cells slowly break down and flushed out of the body through the lymphatic system. A treatment should be able to melt away about 25 percent of fat in the treated area.
Despite the promises of significantly reducing stored fat in certain areas of the body, coolsculpting in Singapore is not a weight loss solution. Regular exercise and healthy diet is still required to maintain optimum results. One great advantage of the procedure though is that even if you gain weight again, distribution of fat is equal throughout the body. No more trouble areas that seem to appear bulgier than the rest of the body.
