Coolsculpting and male breasts
I appreciate your question.
Coolsculpting can be used on male breasts with good results
Its best to have an exam and make sure its fat and not breast tissue
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
best of luck!
CoolSculpting is not generally used on female breasts. The CoolSculpting technology targets fat cells, and while it has been used off label to treat male gynecomastia, female breasts are mainly glandular tissue rather than fat, and may not benefit from the treatment. Another option is tumescent liposculpture for the larger breast. This is a gentle, safe way to remove fat with minimal tiny scars at the entry sites of the micro cannulas. I would suggest visiting a board certified dermatologist who specializes in tumescent liposculpture to find out your best option.
CoolSculpting for breasts?
I would not try CoolSculpting for the breasts. First, the breast is not just fatty tissue, so there is no way to know exactly how it would respond to CoolSculpting. Second, the breast has a very specific desired shape, and CoolSculpting isn't designed to maintain that shape. You could consider liposuction or fat transfer or a breast lift, depending on your breast concerns.
Breast Asymmetry and Coolsculpting
Breast asymmetry in women cannot be treated with coolsculpting. To reduce this area would require plastic surgery. Men have been treated successfully with coolsculpting for an extra bulge. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with coolsculpting for the best cosmetic results.
Does any doctor perform coolsculpting on breasts?
Thank you for the question. No, cool sculpting is not performed on the breasts. You may find the attached link, dedicated to breast asymmetry concerns, helpful to you as you consider options. Best wishes.
CoolSculpting on Female Breast
CoolSculpting is not recommended on female breast because it is more of a glandular tissue, not fat. CS targets fat cells only. Male breast have been performed off label with great success because male breast tend to be more fat than glandular tissue. There are other alternative to achieving more symmetrical breast such as liposuction, fat grafting or breast implants.
Not on breasts
Coolsculpting is not performed on the breasts. Talk to your plastic surgeon about symmetrizing options.
Coolsculpting and Breasts
Liposuction is much better for chest contouring , especially if there is assymetry. Plus glandular tissue will not be cured with any non invasive option. Best, Dr. Emer.
Coolsculpting on Female Breast....NO
Although Coolsculpting is being used off label on men's breast tissue for gynecomastia, I wouldn't use it on the female breast. We've been using on men for several years. It takes about 2 treatments. It works on fat but not glandular tissue. Female breasts are mainly glandular tissue so it probably wouldn't work. If it were used, the result might be a deformed looking breast. It would be much better to see a Plastic Surgeon to discuss your options.
If your breast are slightly different size but overall have similar shape, then liposuction of the larger breast may be an option. Alternatively, fat grafting to the smaller breast may be an alternate option.
we do have cool sculpting in our practice. I don't recommend it for treating the female breast. I do occasionally treat the lateral aspect of the breast.
