There is a common misconception around the cosmetic surgery industry that it only applies to women. However, in the same way that women have features that they would like to improve, so do men. One of the most common cosmetic procedures for men, which is continuing to increase year on year, is male breast reduction.
A condition, known as gynaecomastia, causes the enlargement of a mans chest. There are a number of reasons why this can be caused, however it is often due to hormonal imbalances, which cause excess tissue to develop. Understandably, this condition can have a very negative effect on a man, causing embarrassment and anxiety that prevents them from joining in certain activities, or ever removing their clothes.
One of the most effective ways for treating enlarged breasts is to undergo a male breast reduction. The procedure removes excess fat and tissue to give you a flatter, more contoured chest. With VASER Lipo, which is the preferred procedure of Skin Medical, the skin will be tightened through stimulation of collagen production, minimising the chances of loose, excess skin in comparison to other methods of liposuction
What are the benefits of male breast reduction?
There are an endless number of benefits for having a male breast reduction, especially if your gynaecomastia is affecting your emotional wellbeing. Perhaps the biggest benefit, will be an increase in confidence and self-esteem. Many patients who suffer with this condition have been known to avoid social activities, for fear of others noticing their chest. However, once the chest has been contoured, you will be free to wear tighter, better fitting clothes with confidence.
VASER Liposuction is also minimally invasive, therefore there is a lower likelihood of scarring compared to traditional surgical liposuction. The final result is also much smoother when using VASER, as the fat is broken down using ultrasound technology before it is removed.
