Diet and Exercise Not Cutting it? Banish your Man Boobs Without Surgery!
Breast tissue on a man should look very different than it does on a woman. There are men, however, for whom “man boobs” are a very real problem. Scientifically, this concern, in which extra fatty or glandular tissue expands the male breast, is called gynecomastia. On a physical level, there is little concern about extra breast tissue on the male body. Psychologically, however, a man with “breasts” can suffer great emotional distress. Men may attempt to wear clothing that pulls in the chest or hides this part of the body. Regardless of age, a man is likely to suffer from lack of confidence due to his physique.
Thanks to modern technologies and modalities, our office is able to avoid surgery and customize a treatment plan tailored to your individual body concerns whether it is for male breast reduction, skin tightening or increasing muscle definition. At Franklin Skin and Laser, we can safely and effectively treat most cases of gynecomastia without the use of anesthesia, little to no downtime, and no scars.
If any of the below apply to you, you may be a good candidate for non-surgical male breast reduction at our Cool Springs office. A qualified professional, like Dr. Steven Bengelsdorf, can do a thorough examination to rule out other potential risks, like an abscess or growth, and determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
- You have mild to moderate excessive glandular tissue growth
- The excess tissue/breasts are not caused by obesity
- Your male breasts are largely composed of fatty tissue
- You want to avoid an invasive surgical procedure
- You can allow for multiple treatments as needed

How Does CoolSculpting Work?
How Does Exilis Work?
What Is the Difference Between The Two Options?
CoolSculpting freezes fat through different sized applicators that are applied to the skin. These applicators work well to debulk larger areas of fat. Typically, you can reduce between 15%-23% of fat per session and retreat the area as needed after a few weeks. This makes CoolSculpting great for reducing fat on large areas of the body such as the abdomen, flanks, arms, thighs and male breasts.
In comparison, Exilis Ultra utilizes a larger rolling wand, not hands-free applicators, to heat and melt fat. This makes the technology more customizable with its capabilities of being able to contour and sculpt the areas of the body that CoolSculpting applicators cannot fit or cannot be applied. Exilis also tightens the skin so it can be used as a standalone treatment or as an add on after bulk fat reduction with CoolSculpting.

Is it safe?
Both of these treatments are FDA approved and are safe and effective for fat reduction. There are some contraindications for both treatments but one of our certified clinicians will go through your eligibility before getting you scheduled for the treatment. Client safety is our priority, and we would never perform a procedure that wasn’t indicated or safe for the patient.
