Lose unwanted fat, permanently. No surgery. No downtime.
Dr. Chiu and The Derm Institute offers a welcoming, private, and comfortable environment for men to chat ways to improve their confidence. One of the most popular procedures for men? CoolSculpting! We can partner with you to get rid of those stubborn areas of fat that don’t budge despite working out, or as a great jumpstart to a healthy confident you.
Because of genetics, some parts of the body deposit more fat no matter how much you work out or how well you eat. In our male patients, we most commonly see and treat:
- Lovehandles or “flank fat”
- Stomach area to give you an even more chiseled appearance
- Under the chin fat or “double chin fullness”
- Back areas to get that “cut” look
These are common areas that men’s bodies retain fat, even those who workout regularly and have a healthy lifestyle will have lovehandles and spare tire areas that could use a little extra help from CoolSculpting, a patented fat freezing procedure that literally kills fat cells with cold temperatures. Lose up to 25-40% of fat with just two sessions! The results are amazing!

What makes CoolSculpting at TDI different from other practices and providers?
Here at TDI our approach for treatment always mirrors our belief that everyone is unique, and that patient care should be individualized. Rather than going to another practice where you are simply assessed and then given the same course of treatment as everyone else, at TDI, Dr. Chiu has created a fully-customizable body contouring experience. Every CoolSculpting procedure is coupled with Cellutone, to tighten the skin and help eliminate fat faster. Whether the best treatment for you is CoolSculpting, Kybella, or a combination of both Vanquish ME and CoolSculpting (the Fire and Ice treatment), we work with you to find the most optimal and realistic plan to achieve your goals.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure – an applicator is applied to the surface of the skin to deliver precisely controlled cooling which then crystallizes and permanently removes the fat cells in specific areas of the body. The fat cells in the treated area are gradually eliminated through the body’s normal metabolic processes. The result is a reduction in fat bulges that is visible in most patients as early as three weeks to three months after treatment. The results are amazing!
What areas of the body can CoolSculpting be used on to eliminate unwanted fat?
Common areas to address with CoolSculpting include but are not limited to:
- Abdomen (belly fat or muffin top)
- Flanks (love handles)
- Upper arm fat
- Chin (double chin)
- Bra Bulges
- Armpit pooches
- Under Buttocks (aka ‘banana roll’)
- Thighs aka “saddle bags”
Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting fat removal?
CoolSculpting is ideal for anyone, man or woman with pinch-able fat who already have a healthy diet and lifestyle. Ideal candidates have stubborn fat or bulges that do not seem to improve even with exercise. CoolSculpting is not intended for significant weight-loss and is not recommended as a weight-loss solution. Here at TDI we ensure that your goals are discussed and that the best and most complete plan of treatment is executed, so that you get consistent results.
How long does CoolSculpting take?
Treatment sessions vary from 35 minutes to one hour, depending on the areas being treated. The key is to follow through on the complete plan personalized for you by our team, with a minimum of two sessions as this yields the optimal results.
Does CoolSculpting hurt?
No! Most people only experience sensations of pulling, tugging or pinching at the beginning of the process as a vacuum uses pressure to draw tissue into the applicator. There may also be feelings of tingling in the initial five minutes of the procedure, after which you can relax, watch a movie, read a book or simply lay back.
I hear about many different treatments for non-surgical fat loss—what is the difference between CoolSculpting, Vanquish ME, and Kybella?
Coolsculpting uses cryolipolysis or cold to eliminate fat, while Vanquish ME uses radiofrequency heat energy to target fat cells; Kybella is an injectable medication that dissolves fat in small areas. At The Derm Institute, we offer all these modalities and will look at your body type and area of concern to customize a treatment plan which determines the best treatment or combination of treatments for you. Typically Vanquish ME is used for debulking, Coolsculpting is for “sculpting” definitive bulges or problem areas, and Kybella is used for small areas to perfect and contour.
When can I return to normal activities?
Since CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive, patients generally resume their routine activities immediately, including returning to work and exercise regimens. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.
When can I expect to see results after CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting can reduce fat in the target area by an average of 25% each session. Results are seen as early as three weeks to three months after the treatment. We do recommend 2 sessions about 1-2 months apart for optimal results.
How long do results last?
Fat cells destroyed by CoolSculpting and removed from the body are permanent. However, with weight gain, fat cells can still expand. If you maintain good exercise and dietary habits, the results should be longterm.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The price of CoolSculpting depends on the applicators used and the total number of sessions required to achieve the desired results. Because this depends on each patients’ needs, an in-office consultation and body mapping is required to determine pricing. It is crucial not to under treat as this can be a waste of resources. Complete “treatment to transformation” is key.
