Gynaecomastia or ‘man boobs’

Want to get rid of those ‘man boobs’?

Gynaecomastia or ‘pseudo gynaecomastia’ (sometimes known as ‘man boobs’) is the abnormal development of large mammary glands or fatty breast tissue and can be a common and often embarrassing condition suffered by some men. The good news is that there is a non-surgical solution, called CoolSculpting® to help this condition.

Gynaecomastia and pseudo gynaecomastia ‘man boobs’ affects a large percentage of the male population and can start during puberty. It can cause one or both of the male breasts to enlarge or the nipples can simply look bulging.

For men having enlarged mammary glands can be a source of embarrassment and cause shyness or even stop them from doing the things they enjoy or wearing the current fashions.

Don’t let this condition control how you feel about yourself, with CoolSculpting there is no surgery, no scarring, minimal discomfort and no downtime.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting® with the Zeltiq Procedure® (also known as ‘Cryolipolysis’ or’ fat freezing’) is a fat reduction method.

Cosmetic Image Clinics is proud to be among one of the first in the Brisbane City CBD to offer this revolutionary body contouring treatment. CoolSculpting is a technique in which the fat cells are frozen in order to destroy the fat cell without damage to other tissues.

Is CoolSculpting painful?

You will feel a sensation of pressure as the fat is sucked into the hand piece. You will feel an initial sensation of coldness as the temperature drops. Eventually the cold anaesthetises the area that is being treated. No anaesthesia is required in this technique. People can read a book, watch a movie on their iPad or phone while the procedure occurs.

What kind of results can I expect?

Changes may be seen as early as three weeks after your treatment with the most dramatic results after one to three months, in some instances some people require multiple treatments on the one area to achieve the desired results.

Are the results permanent?

As long as you maintain your weight with a balanced diet and regular exercise your post CoolSculpting results should remain constant.
