Choosing a Qualified Cosmetic Surgeon

Male breast reduction surgery is one of the very straightforward cosmetic surgery procedures. However, in order to achieve an excellent results, it will require a

  • skilled approach that can only come from
  • specialised training and many years of experience.

  • Your Rapport with a Cosmetic Surgeon

Treating Gynecomastia with Liposuction

It must be stressed that the true case of male breast is mostly formed by

  • the mammary glands,
  • rather that by the fat deposit around the breast.
  • A male breast that is due to the fat is mostly present in a very obese person.
  • This is not a true case of gynaecomastia. But the liposuction may offer some reduction.

Today, cosmetic surgeons are able to treat a growing number of gynecomastia patients using liposuction.

  • This is due in part to advances in liposuction technology,
  • which have resulted in a wider selection of less invasive techniques.

The procedure for treating gynecomastia with liposuction is typically performed using

  • local anaesthesia with sedation.
  • Depending on your needs, incisions may be designed to be located along the
    • edge or the
    • periphery of the areola or within the armpit.
  • Through these incisions, we will remove excess
    • fat and/or
    • mammary glandular tissue.
  • Simultaneously, sculpting a new flatter chest contour that looks natural and masculine to your body.

Male Breast Reduction with liposuction

The recovery process following liposuction is typically quite tolerable.

  • Patients are often given a compression garment to wear and support the hollowed out breast for the first few weeks after surgery;
  • this helps to minimise swelling and offers support to the healing tissues.
  • While vigorous exercise is typically off-limits for about 2-3 weeks, many men return to work or school within just several days after their procedures.
  • However, it is important to understand that every patient tend to heals at a unique pace.
  • The cosmetic surgeon will give you an individualised instructions which is best suited for you.
