vaser lipo for male breast reduction (male chest)
Oversized male breasts are surprisingly common. It is estimated that gynaecomastia (the clinical term for this condition) appears in more than 40% of the male population over 21 years old.
Male breast reduction is currently our most popular treatment area for Vaser.
Fat that collects around the male breast can appear naturally in men and is often a genetic condition that no amount of dieting or exercise will remove. Gynaecomastia can cause embarrassment and can lead to a lack of confidence at any age. Enlarged male breasts will also affect many men’s quality of life as they tend to avoid sporting activities that would expose their chest. Relationships can also suffer or be restricted through lack of confidence.
Skin Medical are pleased to report that we have treated many clients with this condition, many of who have had significant male breast reduction using Vaser lipo.
Advantages of Male Breast Reduction using vaser lipo:
✔ Fat cells treated are permanently destroyed.
✔ Skin tightening and shrinkage means that there will be no loose skin following the fat removal.
✔ The Vaser procedure is performed under local anaesthetic rather than general meaning that patients do not have to have an overnight stay in the clinic.
✔ Only 48 hours of downtime.
✔ Minimally invasive treatment means that there is less chance of adverse side effects associated with surgery.
✔ Minimal pain which can easily be controlled using over-the-counter pain relief.
✔ Results appear gradually. Post-surgery appearance is consistent with normal dieting and exercise efforts.
✔ Costs are less than half of those associated with traditional cosmetic surgery.
THE VASER LIPO PROCEDURE
The Vaser lipo procedure for male breast reduction is similar to that on other areas of the body. After administering a local anaesthetic to the breast, keyhole incisions (that do not require any stitches) are made adjacent to the breast. These incisions allow the probe to pass through the fatty issues, melting the fat as it is activated by the surgeon.
Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the procedure time is generally between 1.5 to 2 hours.
With the Vaser lipo we will only target the fat cells; all gland tissue will remain intact. Immediately after the procedure there will be a noticeable change in the shape of the breasts as the solid fat structure has been melted into a liquid form and sucked out. Over the following weeks there will be a further reduction and improvement of the breast shape as any residual fat is discharged by the body’s natural excretion processes. The fat cells targeted are permanently destroyed and will not rebuild.
The skin tissue that existed before the procedure contracts to follow the new shape of the chest. These effects mean that the chest becomes firmer and more masculine. You can see examples of before and after photos in our vaser gallery.
There is little downtime associated with Vaser lipo and patients can go back to work shortly after having the procedure. We usually advise 48 hours of downtime. We ask that patients avoid heavy lifting and exercise for the next ten days or so to avoid any unnecessary risk, and strenuous physical activity should be avoided for up to 8 weeks after the procedure. You will be advised further on this during consultation and your follow-up procedure.
The first step to getting your male breast reduction will be to arrange a consultation with a clinician. It is important to know that at Skin Medical we do not employ sales persons and none of our staff have targets or are remunerated by results. A recent Which? report advised people to avoid clinics that employed sales persons as they did not always receive impartial advice.
At the consultation we will assess your medical history, explain the male breast reduction procedure using Vaser lipo and assess your condition. We will be frank and impartial with our assessment and give our opinion as to the results to be expected.
It should be noted that Vaser lipo is not a weight loss solution for persons classified as obese, but a procedure ideal for body contouring without surgery.
