Treating Gynecomastia with Liposuction

gynecomastia- laser lipo and Vein CenterGynecomastia is common in many men, but it’s also a great source of embarrassment for many. Today, there are numerous ways to get rid of this pet peeve – including liposuction.

Let’s first discuss what this term means:

Gynecomastia is essentially a benign enlargement of the male breast tissue. The resulting appearance is woman-like breasts. Most boys going through puberty have some enlargement of the breast tissue, which spontaneously resolves on its own at the end of puberty. When it doesn’t resolve or revert, it can lead to perpetual self-image issues – well into adulthood.

Other causes for gynecomastia besides the different life stage of puberty, are endocrine disorder, steroid use (seen in many body builders), as well as other medical conditions. Unfortunately, exercise won’t be sufficient enough to tone down “man boobs” – however liposuction can.

Liposuction for Gynecomastia

Liposuction is one modern marvel that’s hard to ignore.  It zaps the fat in specific regions, and in this case – the male breasts. Here’s how it’s done:

  • Liposurgeons will use tumescent solutions to numb the area, and reduce the risks presented by general anesthesia.
  • Next, the surgeon will take small microcannulas and insert these in the area, to gently suction fat.
  • You will remain awake, and you will notice results right away.
  • The liposurgeon can furthermore sculpt and tighten the area, so you look lean and mean.

One important point to mention is that some men have excess breast glandular tissue. When this occurs, it has to be surgically removed – ask a specialist for more information.
