Gynecomastia is enlargement of breast tissue in boys or men. It’s most commonly caused through hormonal changes related to age; with boys at puberty, as their hormone levels surge to new levels, or with older men in their sixties, when naturally decreasing testosterone levels can result in breast development. Fatty breasts can happen through drug use, usually steroids, and gaining weight can also play a part. A fatty chest might be caused by gaining excess fat, causing sagging breasts and this condition can happen in just one of the breasts or in both breasts.
Fatty breasts can make men feel self-conscious about their chests; embarrassed about how they look to others, and unsure about which clothes they can wear to disguise their chest. Gynecomastia, also commonly called man boobs is primarily genetic, meaning that men have very little say in whether they develop enlarged male breasts. Vaser lipo is an ideal treatment which can help many of these men.
- Excess fat in the male breast
- Excess glandular tissue development
- Both excess fat and glandular tissue
- Fat which might in either one breast, or both breasts
- Possibility of excess skin and downward pointing nipples and an enlarged areola
Vaser lipo for gynecomastia treatment, which is also known as male breast reduction, can help to flatten the chest area, leaving men with a more masculine shape. It can also produce more skin tightening than any other form of liposuction or body reshaping.
Sometimes, even after weight reduction from diet and exercise, there are still certain parts of the body that don’t improve, but with vaser lipo you’ll get permanent results as long as you follow a healthy diet and exercise programme after the treatment. Those who undergo vaser lipo for gynecomastia breast reduction are happy with a flatter, sculpted chest and feel more comfortable in their clothing.
Vaser lipo is a gentle procedure which extracts the unwanted fat, but avoids the nerves, blood vessels and surrounding tissue, leaving hardly any bruising and swelling. Vaser treatment gets performed under a local anaesthetic, avoiding any complications associated with a general anaesthetic, and the results are immediate and further enhanced over the next six months. The treatment is ideal on large or small areas and you can have multiple areas treated during one procedure.
After vaser lipo most patients are able to return to work one week after their treatment if they have a sedentary job, and those with jobs that are more physical, then the time extends to two weeks. You can resume exercise such as walking and jogging two weeks after the treatment, and four to six weeks for doing chest and back exercises such as weight lifting.
