Gynecomastia, also known as man boobs, is a condition where there’s excess fat in a man’s breast area and it’s a condition that affects around 15% of adult men in the UK. A reduction in testosterone levels and an increase in oestrogen levels is usually the cause of this condition. Oestrogen is found in the bodies of most men, but it’s usually in drastically reduced levels, so when the oestrogen levels rise, the man’s breasts will become more pronounced.
Gynecomastia is embarrassing for teens and young men, often dictating what clothes they choose to wear and which activities they do. They won’t want to wear tight t-shirts and slim fitting tops if it shows off their fatty breast and swimming would be a nightmare wearing just a pair of trunks. In older and middle-aged men it’s also a cause of emotional upset and low self-esteem.
Fat in the male breast is often very difficult to lose. In most cases, even though dieting and exercise has managed to drop the weight from other parts of the body, the fatty man boobs are likely to stay. Fortunately, vaser liposuction is an efficient method to resolve this problem. Vaser lipo is a procedure best known for its usefulness in targeting stubborn areas of fat, that simply won’t go away and this treatment will give you the flat chest of your dreams.
The vaser lipo procedure can easily tell the difference between fat, while missing the blood vessels, connective tissues and nerves, which takes away the risk of damage to these areas. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure time is usually between 1.5 to 2 hours. Once we remove the chest fat, those fat cells are gone forever, meaning as long as you keep up with a healthy diet and some physical exercise, the results are permanent.
Vaser lipo on the man boobs targets the fat around the chest region, which gets liquefied and then removed through a gentle suction process. Since this procedure is minimally invasive, clients can have their treatment and then go home the same day. Most men who have vaser lipo for this condition get back to work in less than 3 days. The client wears a compression garment under their clothes and will continue taking mild pain medications for a while, until the healing process is completely finished.
Advantages of vaser lipo on man boobs:
- The fat cells taken out are permanently destroyed.
- No loose skin on the body after the fat removal, thanks to skin tightening and shrinkage.
- Local anaesthetic used during vaser lipo treatment means a walk in, walk out procedure.
- Only a few days of downtime.
- Minimally invasive treatment.
- Minimal discomfort.
- Instant results, which gradually improve over the following months.
Gynecomastia results are often very soft, meaning that the chest area doesn’t look out of sync with the rest of the body.
