For men who have gynecomastia, or enlarged breasts, there can be a lot of negative emotions. They may feel shame, insecurity or humiliation because of the large size of their male breasts. Nearly half of all men have some excess fat that is localized in breast tissue on one or both breasts. Over 65 percent of all disorders related to male breasts are due to gynecomastia. Surgery and liposuction are the procedures that are typically used for treatment of male breast disorders.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is just one of the modern cosmetic procedures available today. It is basically a technologically advanced method of removing fat from unwanted sections of the body. It is not a treatment for weight loss. It is typically used in those tougher areas which do not respond favorably to traditional methods like diet and exercise. These stubborn areas of fat can be safely removed through the liposuction process. Many people choose to use it on the most stubborn areas such as those around the abdomen, thighs, neck, back of the arms or the buttocks. Most of the time the procedure can be done in just one appointment but it is unsafe to remove too much fat from the body all at one time and so some patients have to have a couple of sessions to achieve the desired result. A plastic surgeon can discuss all the available options with a patient and work out a suitable treatment plan which will help them reach their goals.
