Ask Dr. K: Liposuction & Breast Reduction Surgery for Men?

Ask Dr. Kassabian: Men Getting Breast Reduction Surgery? 

I have been wanted to discuss this for some time and figured no better than now with Father’s Day just around the corner. This month I will discuss the topic of men receiving Breast Reduction Surgery. Well, it is more common that you might think.

Many men feel embarrassed or insecure by enlarged breasts, technically known as Gynecomastia. About 50 percent of all men have excess localized fat or excess glandular tissue in their breasts. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, gynecomastia accounts for more than 65 percent of all male breast disorders. So we can see, enlarged breasts in men affects a significant portion of our population, so stigmas can be put to rest with the realization of these numbers and advances in Male Breast Reduction Surgery.

I would like to note that just because a male may have “larger than average” breasts, does not mean he has Gynecomastia. Some men and boys store fat on their chests, giving the appearance of breasts. This is called Pseudogynecomastia and may go away with diet and exercise. Although not as severe as Gynecomastia, one may seek further treatment after diet and exercise have proven futile in eradicating the fat pockets.

Although not a serious medical problem, Gynecomastia can cause physical pain and inflict emotional distress and can be seen in both men and young boys.  In fact, up to 65 percent of 14-year-old males have enlarged breasts, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians. 90 percent of these cases will see the excess breast tissue disappear within 3 years, largely due fluctuations in sex hormones during puberty. In older men, gynecomastia often results from the decreasing levels of testosterone, which occurs naturally during the aging process. Men also experience an increase in body fat with age and a resultant rise in estrogen, adding to the condition.

Now that we can see how common the occurrence of enlarged breasts in men is, gynecomastia or not, we can explore treatment options.

Liposuction and Laser Liposuction are the most viable solutions for such a common condition, both with minimal recovery time. Here, a small incision is made and a hollow tube (cannula), attached to a pump, is inserted and used to suction the excess fat out.

In more severe cases, an Excision procedure may be performed, in which the surgeon will remove the excess glandular tissue, fat and skin from the surrounding area around the areola and from the sides and bottom of the breast. Depending on their severity of each case, the incision size will vary, but with proper post-surgery care, scarring can be minimized significantly.

Male Breast Reduction Surgery is most often performed on an out-patient basis and is complete in a matter of hours with very little downtime following. Each case is different but one aspect remains constant, enlarged breasts in males is common, easily treatable and most importantly, nothing to be ashamed of.

For more information or to discuss options for you, please contact me at info@liftmd.com or 310-285-0400.

Sincerely,

Dr. Garo Kassabian

Get Your Body Back With A Mommy Makeover

Now that the kids are back in school, it’s time for mommy to focus on herself. From new moms to those with kids already out of the house, the Mommy Makeover procedure at Lift MD Aesthetics® is the perfect surgical package to get your body back into the shape you want. Dr. Kassabian can customize your makeover depending on your needs and history and will target only areas of concern.

A typical Mommy Makeover can include breast work: a breast augmentation, a lift with augmentation or reduction,  or a breast lift only. A consultation will determine which of these options is right for you. The next step in the procedure focuses on the mid-section. Laser liposuction is used to remove any unwanted fat pockets and works to correct areas of stretched skin. A conditional third step is next. If there is an excessive amount of loose skin and weakened abdominal muscles, then a Tummy Tuck can be performed to correct these areas.

As a dual board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kassabian may combine these procedures all at one time if deemed safe. The recovery period can last from a week to 10 days. You can get your body back in one day of surgery and be back at your child’s soccer practice within two weeks. Dr. Kassabian’s expertise and artistry will give you natural results that will make all the PTA moms envious.
After all, “Looking Good Feels Good”® -Dr. Garo Kassabian
Call Lift MD Aesthetics® if you feel this may be an option for you, and Dr. Kassabian will discuss your options and everything you need to know about getting your body back.

What makes Lipotherme™ different from traditional liposuction?  It is faster and minimally invasive.  Recovery time is less, meaning you will be back in action in less time.  The procedure is less painful than traditional liposuction, allowing you to be awake during the procedure.

Lipotherme™ can be used to treat several areas of the body including the stomach, back, thighs, legs, hips, arms, and even the neck and face.  Lipotherme™ has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration so you can trust that it is safe.
