Breast Reduction can be carried out for men suffering from excess breast development, a condition which is known as Gynecomastia. Whilst Gynecomastia is generally not physically harmful, it tends to have psychological or social-disrupting effect. This procedure can help restore confidence in male patients by helping them attain firmer, flatter chest appearance that one would normally associate with masculinity.
Generally, the surgical procedure for breast reduction in men involves the removal of fat, skin and glandular tissues from the breasts, very much like Reduction Mammoplasty for women. In certain cases, liposuction may also be introduced to liquefy and remove large amount of fatty issues. However, this approach is usually reserved for men with firm, elastic skin that will stick to the body’s reshaped contour once the fat has been removed.At NICANOR, we commonly use VASER LipoSelection®, an ultrasound-assisted liposuction system that uses sound waves to emulsify fatty tissues prior to its extraction. This process allows us to achieve the desired breast reduction results minus the long surgical scars usually associated with procedures of this nature.
