VASER Male breast reduction

It’s not just women who get boob jobs

Gynaecomastia is the medical name for what is more commonly known as 'man boobs' or ‘moobs’. It affects more men than you’d expect (about 60%, according to some studies) and can be a real confidence sapper. It causes men to hide in baggy clothes and avoid stripping off on the beach. Most people think traditional liposuction is the answer. But what if there was a less invasive solution, with a sharply shortened recovery period? Well, there is. It’s called the VASER technique.

What is VASER Male Breast Reduction?

VASER stands for ‘Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance’. It uses ultrasound waves to liquefy fat cells, making them easier to extract. The liquefied fat can then be gently suctioned out through a small needle. It’s a perfect solution for gynaecomastia, whether the condition is the result of hormonal changes or excess weight.

Benefits

Forget traditional lipo — VASER wins hands down

VASER is much gentler on the skin than traditional liposuction. It requires only minor incisions and there’s no need for stitches or a general anaesthetic. Recovery time is more than 50% faster; many people are able to return to work in as little as 1 or 2 days. VASER is also capable of removing areas of cellulite, which traditional lipo can’t.

Technique

The VASER technique

First you will be given a mild sedative and put into a ‘twilight state’ where you feel relaxed and sleepy. We will make one or two small incisions in your nipple zone and insert a small probe. This will emit ultrasound waves to break down and liquefy fat cells. We’ll then use a small needle to gently suction out the liquefied fat. The treatment takes about 45 minutes and, due to the twilight anaesthesia, is a comfortable experience.

Results

How will I feel?

Your chest will feel tight and sore, a bit like you’ve done too many bench presses, but it’s not usually painful enough to need more than 1 or 2 days off work. You’ll be given a course of antibiotics and have to wear a compression garment for 6 weeks to maximise skin retraction and minimise any bleeding or swelling. After you have fully healed, you should notice a 50% reduction in pinch thickness in your breasts. These results are permanent and will boost your confidence and allow you to wear clothes that are more fitted.

I'm so impressed with the reduction of my chest a week after my treatment. Dr Ravi Jain was honest and kind and he is so knowledgeable in VASER Lipo!

The results are amazing! I found it very difficult to find a place to do the kind of specific surgery I wanted done – and as such I didn’t really have high hopes that I would be able to get the kind of outcome I wanted. But credit to my surgeon, he did a fantastic job!

I selected VASER Lipo as I had read that it was less painful than other methods and the recovery was much sooner. I researched a few different clinics but felt Riverbanks offered much more in terms of a personal service. When meeting Dr Ravi Jain I felt my selection was justified and have been happy with the results ever since.

VASER is a much less impactful procedure than traditional lipo. It’s fantastic as a male breast reduction treatment and has transformed so many men’s lives for the better. It’s quite common for our patients to wish they’d done it years ago.

FAQS

Treatment Questions

  • What is the treatment used for? add_circle
    VASER is used to treat gynaecomastia, the medical name for the enlargement of a man’s breasts, a condition typically caused by age, weight gain or a hormone imbalance. The VASER treatment liquefies the fat cells in the breast and gently suctions them out, with the aim of producing a 50% reduction in pinch thickness in the breasts. VASER can be used to treat excess fat in other areas of the body too, such as the back, tummy, buttocks, thighs and the underside of the arms.
  • How long do the results last? add_circle
    The results are permanent as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained.
  • Is the treatment painful? add_circle
    Once you have been sedated, you shouldn’t feel any pain at all.
  • Can anything go wrong? add_circle
    It’s very unusual for anything to go wrong with VASER liposuction. You may experience changes in nipple sensitivity. This can last up to 6 months and in rare cases can be permanent. Chronic pain is uncommon.
  • When will I see results? add_circle
    After about 6 weeks, once you have fully healed, you should notice a 50% reduction in pinch thickness in your breasts.
  • What if I am not happy with my surgery? add_circle
    We would always encourage you to come and see Dr Jain to discuss a way forward. Your satisfaction is key to us.
