Vaser Gynecomastia San Jose
Gynecomastia – more commonly known as man boobs – is caused when excess fat develops in a man’s breast area. The Jenesis offers a range of male breast reduction treatments to shape the men chest with VASER Liposuction, 3 D Micro Lipo and/ or Surgical excision of fibrous tissue. True male breast is caused by excessive glandular breast tissue. Typically, this small localized lump under the nipple that is harder than the normal surrounding fatty tissue that is composed of both adipose and fibrous glandular tissues. The causes of gynecomastia are usually alcoholism, insufficient testosterone hormone, and some medications.
As men become order, pseudo-gynecomastia can be observed in most male breasts. Also, for younger obsess men, excessively fatty breasts are common. Usually, their breasts are enlarged due to excessive amount of fat tissue even though the amount of glandular tissue is normal. Massive weight loss patients may require a more complex procedure which is similar to a female breast reduction with skin incisions and scars.
Each patient has to be evaluated individually to see what’s best for him by Dr. Jane or her trained patient care team.
Dr. Jane has extensive experience in all forms of liposuction for men’s abdomen and men’s chest.
Over 30% of our liposuction patients are male, with the chest being one of the most common problem areas.
Male breast liposuction is one of most commonly treated liposuction areas for men. The other popular areas are the abdomen, flanks, neck, and face. A male patient’s excessive breast fat can be carefully reduced by liposuction to improve his physical appearance. Removing fatty breast tissue by liposuction is easy, but removing glandular tissue is much more difficult. If necessary, Dr. Jane can recommend a mammogram before liposuction to accurately assess amount of glandular tissue that needs to be reduced.
Dr. Jane uses 3D Micro Lipo technique in order to achieve best results with minimum scar and minimal downtime. Liposuction by local anesthesia is most effective for pseudo-gynecomastia. For most true gynecomastia patients, liposuction also can improve appearance. If Dr. Jane finds the glandular breast tissue is too dense, she may recommend a surgical removal method. For the patients with moderate amount of breast tissue, Dr. Jane may put a little incision around the nipple to shape the chest. The scar is almost invisible a few months later.
Dr. Jane advises her patients to have a short walk about inside or outside their home on the day of the surgery. The short walk will enhance drainage through small openings and minimize swelling. There is no post-operative activity restriction. However, for one or two days, absorptive pads are applied to absorb the drainage and are held in place by an elastic compression garment and/or elastic binders until the drainage stops. An adequate compression will help to prevent bleeding and excessive bruising. Her patients are expected to take a shower at least once or twice daily beginning the next day of surgery.
