Gynecomastia or enlarged male breast is a growing problem amongst todays youth !! Due to genetics, use of certain medications, or other unspecified reasons, some men develop the appearance of enlarged breasts. It is estimated that up to 50% of men in the world experience some degree of gynecomastia during their lifetime. Gynecomastia can present at any age, and male breast reduction can be performed safely and successfully on teenagers and adult men alike.
The Non-Invasive Liposuction without Operation procedure removes excess fat and glandular tissue to restore a flatter, firmer and more masculine contour to the chest.
Why have a male breast reduction?
While losing weight can help reduce the appearance of male breasts for some men, often times there is excess glandular tissue as well, causing even very lean patients to notice enlarged breasts. Currently, male breast reduction is the only consistently effective treatment for gynecomastia that has long lasting, if not permanent, results. Following the procedure the patients commonly say they feel comfortable going shirtless for the first time in years, and report an enhanced sense of self-confidence.
If you are uncomfortable or self-conscious about the appearance of your chest, or if you find yourself avoiding certain activities because you are afraid to show your chest, male breast reduction is an option to consider. With the help of a qualified cosmetic surgeon, the procedure offers dramatic, near immediate improvements with NO scarring.
As the fat and the glandular tissues, which are the root causes are removed, there are no chances of recurrence, but it is imperative for the patient to follow the surgeon’s post-procedure recommendations.
Who is a good candidate?
The best candidates for gynecomastia are healthy men with skin that is still elastic enough to adjust to breast reduction.
Men who are overweight should first attempt to lose weight with the help of a physician-directed exercise and weight loss program. In addition, men who drink alcohol excessively or smoke marijuana generally are not considered good candidates for surgery, because these substances, along with anabolic steroids, have been linked to gynecomastia. Discontinuing their use may diminish breast overdevelopment enough so that surgery is not required.
What is the risk?
All surgeries carry some degree of risk. Risks associated with gynecomastia surgery include infection, skin injury or excessive bleeding. The procedure may also leave noticeable scars, permanent pigment changes in the breast area, or slightly mismatched breasts or nipples, although a second procedure may correct unevenness. Side effects of breast reduction surgery may include loss of breast sensation or numbness.
How is the surgery performed?
Gynecomastia correction usually is performed on an outpatient basis using NO general anesthesia or local anesthesia plus sedation. The procedure usually takes about an hour and a half to two hours.
Gynecomastia procedure involves no Incisions or Scars thanks to our Liposuction Without Operation technology. Your surgeon may recommend performing liposuction in conjunction with gynecomastia correction.
What about recovery?
There is No Downtime. You can go to work or carry on with your daily activities immediately post procedure. For a few days following gynecomastia procedure, you may feel some loosening of fat around the chest area.
