This patient, in his mid-50s, represents a growing shift in male cosmetic procedures. He is one of more than 1 million men who underwent some kind of procedure in the last year.
He was bothered by fatty deposits in his abdomen and chest, especially the excessive appearance of fat in the chest area. He came to Dr. Lepore, seeking Liposuction and treatment of Gynecomastia. It was determined that he would udergo Vaser ultrasound-assisted liposuction. Vaser Liposuction reduces subcutaneous fat, but does not resolve skin laxity, where it is significant. In this patient’s case, liposuction alone was able to improve the appearance of the chest area, without excision of the underlying breast tissue.
In addition, he had liposuction of the upper and lower abdomen, and flanks. A total of 3100 cc of fat was removed during surgery.
The After Photos were taken 7 weeks post-surgery. The patient is very pleased with the results and improved contour. He can expect an even smoother contour to become more evident in the coming months.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
This young man was bothered by enlarged-appearing breasts, which he said had been apparent since puberty. He is very fit, not overweight, and does not use recreational drugs or substances that may contribute to enlarged male breasts.
The condition is know as Gynecomastia. In his case, Dr. Lepore performed Male Breast Reduction surgery, with both Liposuction, and removal of some breast tissue. (In some patients, liposuction alone can produce the desired reduction).
Our patient is seen 2 months following his surgery, very pleased with his new chest contour, and his overal results.
