Coolsculpting After Baby

CoolsculptingGiving birth to a baby is both a marvelous and exhausting thing. It can not only bring you the best thing of your life but it can also cause your body to look completely unrecognizable. If you can’t seem to get rid of that extra baby weight, then it might be worth considering taking matters into your own hands and getting CoolSculpting done. Read on to learn more about CoolSculpting.

Before or After Baby?
If you are currently overweight but are planning on having another baby in the near future, then it will be wise to wait to get Coolsculpting done until after you have the baby. Specifically because when you get pregnant, you will naturally gain a bunch of weight and you may not be able to lose it afterwards, which means that your CoolSculpting may not be worth the effort. However, by waiting until you are done having babies, you can ensure that your results last for a lifetime.

Are You A Suitable Candidate?
After your body has had time to heal after having baby, you can schedule your consultation with Dr. York Yates. During your consultation, Dr. York Yates’ and his assistants will evaluate whether or not you’re a good candidate for this procedure. Specifically, if you are obese after having a baby, then you won’t be a suitable candidate. However, if you just have a little bit of extra baby weight that you just can’t get rid of either around your abdomen or upper thighs, then you might be a great candidate for this procedure. During this procedure, your fat cells will be frozen and will fall off a few months later and will be naturally absorbed by your body.

Can You Get CoolSculpting While Breastfeeding?
If you are currently breastfeeding your baby and are wondering about the safety in regards to CoolSculpting, have a consultation with Dr. York Yates in person about your exact scenario. Because CoolSculpting hasn’t been discussed in depth as to how it relates to breastfeeding, there isn’t a firm answer but Dr. York Yates will be able to give you an answer on a case by case basis.

Lose the Man Boobs and Gain Confidence with CoolSculpting

Coolsculpting for MenWe never want to make light of the distressing problem of gynecomastia. Men with excess breast tissue suffer immensely at terms like “man boobs” and “moobs.” One of the most important facts about gynecomastia is that it is a far more prevalent problem than most men assume. If you struggle with enlarged breasts, you are not alone. Men all around the world struggle with the same problem, but you don’t have to. Dr. York Yates consults with many men about their options for minimizing breast size, one of which does not require surgery.

CoolSculpting for Gynecomastia

In recent years, we have seen a number of new devices enter the market, all proposed to eliminate unwanted fat without surgery. Dr. York Yates has selected  CoolSculpting as the best nonsurgical fat reduction device for our Utah practice because this system has the versatility and the proven track record that our patients deserve. Many men and women have obtained this treatment to reduce belly fat, and to sculpt the love handles, or flanks; but gynecomastia? really?

Digging Deeper

Yes, CoolSculpting is an excellent solution to stubborn fat. Yes, it has been used extensively and quite successfully. The way that this non-surgical, completely non-invasive procedure works is by attacking fatty deposits with freezing temperature. When true fat cells reach a certain temperature, they become crystallized inside. As a result, they are flushed from the body in the natural metabolic processes. Each treatment can destroy as much as 25% of the targeted fat cells in a localized area.

Here’s the thing about gynecomastia: it may not be a fat issue. Breast tissue, even when it is in the “fat” category, is denser than much of the adipose tissue that lingers on the thighs, hips, and stomach. This factor alone may come into play when considering how to sculpt the male breast. A secondary consideration that Dr. Yates makes when approaching gynecomastia is the matter of glandular tissue.

Some cases of gynecomastia are instigated or worsened by problematic glandular tissue beneath the areola, or colored area around the nipple. For many men, this true gynecomastia is coupled with pseudo-gynecomastia, which is related to fat tissue. To reach the desired outcome, which is a sculpted chest without fullness that resembles female breasts, it is necessary to discuss the role of glandular tissue and the potential need to remove it with surgery.

Pinpoint the approach that will reinstate your confidence. Schedule your consultation for CoolSculpting or other gynecomastia treatment options in the office of Dr. York Yates today.

Foods to Avoid During Your Weight Loss Journey

coolsculptingCoolsculpting is an ideal way to rid your body of stubborn fat either around your abdomen, upper thighs, buttocks, chin or upper arms. As a non-surgical and FDA approved procedure, CoolSculpting works to freeze fat cells which are then dissolved by your body and excreted through your urine a few months later. As you prepare your body to see the best results possible, it’s important that you take into consideration both your diet and exercise. By avoiding foods that are high in fat, you can help to ensure that you receive the best CoolSculpting results possible. Read on to learn more.


If you go to grab for a glass of wine or can of beer every night when you get home from work, you might want to find another vice to help you relax. Because booze contains a high amount of calories and virtually no nutritional content, you are basically consuming your fair share of empty calories. Although you don’t have to completely eliminate beer from your life, try to only drink it on special occasions such as a celebratory dinner or event.

Red Meat

Yes, it’s true: red meat is the best meat. However, it is the worst meat for you. High in fat that can clog your arteries and cause you to put on the extra pounds, red meat like hamburgers and steak are a no-no if you’re trying to get the best results from your CoolSculpting. Although you should limit your intake of red meat, you can find equally as tasty but healthier options such as turkey burgers.

Processed Foods

No matter where you look it can seem like processed foods are around every corner. From things like frozen pizza to packaged cookies, processed foods provide people with an easy and affordable way to get a good tasting meal. However, that good tasting meal isn’t doing any good for your body. Packed with preservatives, fat, and empty calories, processed foods will not give you that body that you’ve always desired.

Getting CoolSculpting is a great step in the right direction of your weight loss journey. However, if you aren’t eating healthy, then your body won’t get the best results possible. By avoiding the above three foods, you can help to take care of your body. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, contact Dr. York Yates today!
