You’re so Much Cooler Than a Dad Bod

Although “dad bods” have been making the news in Hollywood with celebrities like Chris Pratt and Vince Vaughn flaunting their not-so-sculpted physiques on several occasions in recent years, you don’t have to settle for a lifetime of love handles, a beer belly or a double chin. You have a choice with the help of Ranch and Coast Plastic Surgery’s body contouring techniques: liposuction and CoolSculpting.

What is Dad Bod?

Commonly associated with the rounded body of a busy father, a “dad bod” often results from an overabundance of unhealthy food combined with the lack of time to properly exercise. After all, kids take up a lot of time and energy and some dads simply don’t have the willpower to maintain their pre-dad workout routines. Mix in a diet of mac and cheese, hot dogs and other picky palate pleasing foods that kids love and you have the recipe for a slightly overweight dad bod.

Of course, you don’t have to be a parent to look like one. Age also contributes to the appearance of a dad bod as metabolism and energy levels naturally slow down, leaving formerly sculpted men with a pudgier mid-section.

What is CoolSculpting?

Thanks to CoolSculpting, a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that freezes fat cells you can tone your body by eliminating stubborn fatty areas. While there’s certainly something to be said about choosing to live life fully instead of counting calories and working out incessantly, if you could get rid of the dad bod in a non-invasive way, wouldn’t you like to give it a try?

CoolSculpting is a simple way to get rid of love handles and other areas of fat deposits in your body in less than two hours. Using a CoolSculpting machine, gel pads are attached to the desired spot that freeze the fat cells, a process known as cryolipolysis or fat freezing. During the treatment, you’re free to sit back and relax with a book or even take a nap. Following the procedure, the frozen cells are then naturally eliminated from your body over the next few months.

You’ll see results within three weeks and can continue to get slimmer for up to three months. Aside from feeling the cold and a bit of pressure, you’ll experience no pain during the procedure and continue with the rest of your day immediately after with no recovery time. And there’s no need for anesthesia.

At Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery, you can undergo two treatments at once as we’re the only Plastic Surgery Office and Medical Spa in North County San Diego with Dual CoolSculpting.

What About Liposuction?

Liposuction for men is still a top option for men to lose the love handles and double chin and any larger areas and have dramatic results. It is surgery, though and requires an incision to remove the unwanted fat. Following this liposculpting surgery, there is a recovery period of a couple of weeks, although most people can resume normal everyday activities within the first few days.

CoolSculpting versus Liposuction

Both CoolSculping and Liposuction are body contouring methods that target fat cells.

CoolSculpting for men is a great alternative to liposuction for an easy way to contour your body without a lot of downtime. There is no anesthesia and you can return to work right away. But, while the removal of the fat cells is permanent, it works best when you only have a limited or smaller area that you want to target.

Liposuction is also good when wanting to focus on specific areas of the body; love handles, double chin, back, lower abdomen, and knees. Deciding to get liposuction can offer more dramatic results than CoolSculpting, but it is surgery and anesthesia is required.
