About

Gynaecomastia tissue reduction for the male chest with Vaser liposuction and/or surgical excision is a procedure that is performed to treat excessive skin, fatty and glandular tissue in the male chest.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The surgeon uses VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) liposuction, which is a specialized form of liposuction that uses ultrasound energy to selectively target and break up fatty tissue while preserving other tissues such as blood vessels and nerves. Small incisions are made in inconspicuous locations on the chest, and a cannula (thin tube) is inserted through the incisions to remove the excess fatty tissue. The VASER technology helps to emulsify the fat, making it easier to remove, reducing the risk of damage to surrounding tissues and tightening the overlying skin. In some cases when the breast tissue is very hard, this needs to be removed surgically.

Finally, the surgeon carefully sculpts the chest area to create a more masculine and natural appearance. The goal is to achieve a proportionate and aesthetically pleasing chest contour that is in harmony with the patient's overall physique
