Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction) in Westfield
Not Just for Women; Get Rid of Excess Fat Deposits Today!
When most individuals think of the phrase, “breast reduction,” they imagine a woman who wants to decrease the size of her breasts to improve her appearance or reduce pain in the back. While women may be more likely to talk about breast reductions, the procedure is not limited to the female gender. Now many men in the area are also searching for treatment to reduce excess fat in the chest, and our Westfield plastic surgery specialists are here to help.
Enlarged breasts on males are medically known as gynecomastia. Even with exercise and a healthy diet, some men struggle to get rid of fat on their chests. Now Dr. Carlos Burnett of Burnett Plastic Surgery can help men remove the fat and tighten the skin, leaving the torso firmer and more attractive.* What’s even better is that the procedure can be done while you’re awake without any large incisions and scarring. Most patients can even return to work the next day.
How Does Male Breast Reduction Work?
Using SmartLipo technology, Dr. Burnett combines laser energy with liposuction. This allows the procedure to be more precise and faster as the laser energy targets the fat cells and breaks them down immediately; the liposuction then removes them from underneath the surface of the skin*. Furthermore, the laser energy produces collagen leading to firmer skin. Patients will experience a small amount of inflammation, bruising, and tenderness for a week or two following the procedure and will need to use a compression vest for the same length of time. This vest helps decrease the swelling faster.
Will SmartLipo Breast Reduction Work for Me?
Nearly any male who is healthy is a good candidate for this procedure. The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Burnett. He will talk with you about your ideal goals, evaluate your condition, and discuss your lifestyle and any health concerns. If you and Dr. Burnett decide to move forward with SmartLipo, he will also provide you with the pre-procedure information that you need and let you know what to expect during and after the treatment.
