You don’t have to put up with “man boobs” anymore! The male chest is a common area where fat can accumulate-even without being overweight, and this includes the lateral chest(the area under the arms on the sides of the ribcage, including the armpits). Enlarged male breasts commonly occurs from gynecomastia, which can affect one or both breasts, as well as obesity and other causes. Gynecomastia can occur from certain medications/drugs, hormonal imbalance, and certain diseases.
Prominent male breasts can cause significant issues with self-esteem, affect confidence, and cause embarrassment or anxiety in many situations. VASER Liposuction is the ideal solution for those unwanted male breasts, and the tiny incisions are well-hidden and barely visible.
Removing not only the fat in the region of the nipple/areola(central chest), but on the sides of the chest/thorax as well, results in a toned and fit appearance. For certain cases of gynecomastia, small incisions may be necessary to remove excess glandular tissue.
During your consultation at NorCal Liposculpture, Dr. Friedlander will thoroughly evaluate your history to ensure there are no concerning conditions that may be causing abnormal breast growth.
After VASER Liposuction of the chest, you will wear a compression garment for a few weeks. You will see that your results are immediate, however, as with any surgery, there is a healing process. The majority of the swelling and bruising will resolve in several weeks, and the final results take approximately 4, but up to 6 months.
