Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction) Case 137

Liposuction / Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)

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.

Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction) Case 78

Many men seeking help for Gynecomastia , have been treated by Dr. Lepore. Gynecomastia can be described as an overgrowth of breast tissue in males.  It occurs during puberty most often, but is also associated with several other factors; including use of a number of medications, among them, steroids.  The condition can also be linked to the growth of various types of tumors in the male breast.
This young man reports noting a change in breast tissue in his early 20s. After consulting with Dr. Lepore, he decided to undergo Gynecomastia surgery in San Jose. The treatment would include liposuction of fatty tissue, along with excision (surgical removal) of more dense, excess breast tissue.  In some cases, liposuction alone may be enough.  In the case of this patient, Vaser Liposuction (ultrasound-assisted liposuction) was used to remove fat.   Following gynecomastia surgery, patients need to follow instructions including massage of the affected areas, compression, and scar care. This patient is shown just a few weeks post-surgery.  He's very pleased with his results.
