Correcting Gynaecomastia with VASERlipo

Published on December 30, 2016 by

Gynaecomastia is a medical condition that is characterized by the accumulation or depositing of excessive fatty tissue in the male chest area. It is a condition that causes men to develop what is commonly known as male breasts. Gynaecomastia leads to embarrassment and low confidence in most men affected by the condition. As a result, many men have now opened up to the idea of male breast reduction.

Gynaecomastia temporarily affects newborn children and is also known to occur among a number of adolescent boys during the puberty phase. Gynaecomastia affects newborn children because of maternal hormones and adolescent boys because of puberty-related hormonal changes.

In some cases, it may also show up as an abnormality associated with other medical conditions. For example, it occurs among those affected by a metabolic disorder known as Klinefelter Syndrome. The occurrence of gynaecomastia in this case has been attributed to the use of certain medications to treat the syndrome.

In adolescent boys, it has been observed that gynaecomastia leads to psychological distress. However, the condition is transient in adolescent boys and most affected boys report the issue to be resolved without surgical intervention or medical treatment.

However, in some adolescent boys and most adult men, the condition remains permanent and can only be resolved with the help of a minimally invasive surgical procedure. One of the most effective procedures used to resolve gynaecomastia is VASERlipo.

What Is VASERlipo?

VASER liposuction is an effective surgical procedure that allows men to get rid of excess fat deposits in the chest area. It treats gynaecomastia and offers better chest definition. It removes the shapelessness associated with gynaecomastia and defines the pectorals.

VASERlipo is one of the relatively newer technologies used in the area of mechanical liposuction. It provides better results and is safer. The procedure involves adding ultrasound energy to the tip of the liposuction cannula. The technology was first introduced in the early ‘90s. It relies on ultrasound energy emitted at high frequencies.

The energy is transmitted through probes over the layers of fat. The ultrasound waves are able to effectively melt the fat, which is then extracted using the help of a cannula. This results in the male patient enjoying a well-defined chest.

What to Expect

As stated earlier, VASERlipo is a minimally invasive procedure. A local anaesthetic is used, which eliminates the possibility of experiencing pain during the procedure. The entire procedure does not take more than a few hours to complete. The recovery period is usually only a day. It is an outpatient procedure and does not generally require hospitalization.

The patient can typically resume day-to-day activities such as returning to work within a few days. The results of the procedure are permanent and are noticeable in a matter of months.
