Male Breast Reduction

Enlarged Male Breast (Gynecomastia)

A man’s breasts can gain in size with weight gain, age or with the genetic tendency to do so.  It often occurs during the teen years when the individual can feel very self conscious about it or as an older man with some weight gain and loss of muscle tone.  The breast can appear prominent and unnatural for a man.

Male breast overdevelopment, known medically as “gynecomastia” is exceedingly common.  Gynecomastia affects an estimated 40-60 percent of all men to some degree.  If you are one of the many men who feel self-conscious about the appearance of their chests, breast reduction surgery at Portica Body & Face can absolutely help you.

Male Breast Reduction with VASER Liposuction

VASER lipo is the gold standard for the treatment of enlarged male breasts.  There is no other technology out there that is able to break up and soften the breast tissue as well as VASER Lipo.  Dr. Allen’s surgical technique in combination with the advanced technology of the VASER results in dramatic improvement and a great final shape of the male chest.   Dr. Allen is one of the few offices in the state with the VASER technology and with extensive experience using VASER Lipo to treat enlarged male breasts or gynecomastia.

How is the surgery performed?

The surgery is done in the office and is done under local anesthesia with a bit of light sedation to help the patients feel calm and relaxed.   The surgery is performed through tiny incisions and leaves no visible scars.  Prior to removal the breast tissue is treated with VASER ultrasonic energy.  The VASER probes are passed under the skin and gentle help soften up the tissue and prepare it for removal.  The surgery itself is not painful.  You are awake for the procedure but you will not feel any pain.  You will be relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process
What will my recovery be like?

After the surgery you will have some tenderness in the area that will be similar to the way you feel a day after a very intense workout.  The discomfort will decrease significantly over the next week.

You will have a compression garment that you must wear night and day for the first several weeks after surgery.  This can be hidden under your clothes.

You will experience swelling in the area that is not visible to others but will be noticeable to you.  The swelling will take several months to completely resolve.  Dr. Allen will make recommendation to you on things you can do to help the swelling resolve more quickly.
What kind of results can I expect?

With VASER Lipo in the hands of Dr. Allen you can expect a dramatic improvement in the shape of your chest.   It will take several months for you to see the results, but they will be quite dramatic and significant.

Dr. Allen treats patients who have had their male breast treated by other physicans and the fullness remained after surgery.  She has been very successful in these revision surgeries because of her experience, technique and superior technology in the VASER system.
