Male Breast Liposuction / Gynecomastia
Got Man Boobs? Afraid to Take Off your Shirt?
Excess fat across the chest area of a male can be very embarrassing. You have heard the term man boobs, another term is Gynecomastia. This is a fairly common condition in many men, which can be a genetic predisposition with the way fat cells accumulate and are stored in the body. This male breast condition or gynecomastia can make everyday social situations awkward, from going to the gym to intimacy and finding shirts that fit. Yes, male breasts can be embarrassing, but Tumescent Liposuction, also known as Liposculpture, can help you regain your confidence and enhance your masculine build.
The Tumescent Liposculpting surgical procedure is the safest way to achieve your physical goals, aside from diet and exercise. Unfortunately, the diet and exercise method does not work on local fat areas that are “programmed” into the body, and traditional liposuction is a riskier surgery that requires anesthesia and involves scarring.
The Tumescent technique is safe, the recovery process is quick and the results are amazing.
Here is how it works!
First, a local anesthetic is used to numb the area. With the Tumescent technique, only a local anesthetic is used to numb the area and the patient remains coherent throughout the procedure, which is very safe and relatively painless during recovery. Tiny incisions are made, allowing the doctor to insert the cannula, sculpt and trim around the breast area. The cannula used to remove the fat is only about 3mm wide. Then, a laser is used to gently melt the fat directly under the skin and to encourage skin-tightening. Through the 3mm incisions, the surgeon slowly guides the cannula to the targeted areas to remove the excess fat with precision and resulting in less pain, bruising and downtime for the patient.
All procedures are performed on site at our state-of-the-art clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona. Again, Tumescent Liposuction is the safest alternative to traditional liposuction. Here are some other advantages to the Tumescent technique:
- This permanent procedure produces noticeable results, leaving you with a more sculpted, well-defined manly torso.
- Usually lasting only an hour, our male chest Liposculpture procedure reduces fat and tightens skin leaving a more defined, masculine physique.
- There is very little pain after surgery, minimal incisions and little potential of scarring after the healing process.
- This tumescent liposuction procedure is performed with only light sedation, and most patients are back at work in one to two days.
Why choose male breast reduction liposculpting?
Male breast reduction liposculpting boosts confidence and leaves you with a more masculine physique, permanently. Once these fat cells are removed, they will not grow back and they are gone, forever. This procedure is life-changing and creates new opportunities, romantically – for men who are insecure about their appearance. In addition, male breast liposculpting makes buying clothes easier – no more baggy shirts. And now with the Tumescent Liposuction procedure, recovery times are quick, and there is less post-op bruising and pain.
What can I expect from the procedure?
Tumescent liposuction or liposculpting is performed on-site in our safe, state-of-the-art clinic, so there are no additional fees. Patients are lightly sedated with a local anesthesia, so they remain awake and coherent throughout the surgery. The process is simple, patients are numbed around the area and then one or two small incisions are made on either side of the chest for the placement of the cannula, the small tubular instrument that acts as vacuum to remove the fat. The cannula is only 3 mm in size, so it leaves no unsightly scars. This liposuction lasts only an hour and patients are able to walk out of the office with a newly sculpted body and refined image. Patients are not permitted to drive, however. Each patient will need to be picked up after the surgery and driven home.
Am I a good candidate for male breast reduction?
Liposculpture male breast reduction is generally recommended for patients with full or fatty chests without hard glandular tissue. Anyone who is very thin but still shows the outward appearance of male breasts may not be a good candidate. These patients may have excess glandular tissue, or “true” gynecomastia, and will not benefit from liposculpture. These patients may need a surgical procedure to directed remove the glandular tissue. This procedure is called a “Direct Excision”.Only a physical exam by the doctor can determine if the breast contains excess glandular tissue.
Will I have any scars or sagging skin?
The male breast reduction procedure leaves only one or two small puncture sites on each side of the chest. Only one or two small incisions will be visible after Male Breast Liposuction and each is only 3 mm wide. These incision marks heal very quickly after the surgery and scarring is usually not an issue, because they are so small and they fade to the blend into the natural color of the skin.
Men under the age of 60 with good skin tone will not notice any sagging skin – the Tumescent Liposuction procedure is specifically designed to promote skin-tightening effects as the fat is removed. Older men or men who have lost a considerable amount of weight may still experience sagging or lax skin.
Will this procedure change my nipples?
No, this procedure will not change the size, color, or placement of your nipples.
