Liposuction Breast Reduction Male
Liposuction Breast Reduction Male
One of the most common procedures that Dr. Lanzer performs is Liposuction Breast Reduction Male via liposuction for men.
Liposuction underwent a dramatic change in Australia when Melbourne-based dermatologist, Dr. Daniel Lanzer, arranged the first hands on conference of liposuction using the tumescent method. The fluid numbs the fat and allows fat to be removed fairly safely and in a dramatic way from different areas of the body. One of the areas that became very popular especially in the last few years has been make breast reduction.
In order to have an understanding of male breast reduction via liposuction we have asked Dr. Lanzer a number of critical questions.
WHY IS THIS PROCEDURE SO POPULAR IN YOUR PRACTICE?
Yes it is true. Breast reduction male gynecomastia surgery has become the most common procedure that I perform. I feel that the reason it has become so popular is partly because of our method that patients really like. It involves the tumescent liposuction method which means that in majority of cases there is no cutting out of skin and the whole procedure is done through keyhole. As a result the recovery has been quicker and with less risks. Those patients who do require reduction with subsequent surgery after the liposuction often can get away with a very small cut along the edge of the areola. The other reason for the popularity in our practice probably relates to modern technology. People find us on the internet and travel from all around Australia and even from overseas to have liposuction breast reduction male through the liposuction. Another factor that I have found is that men often discuss their procedure more easily with their mates. Therefore, a lot of males are actually are good friends and have come in together for the Liposuction breast reduction male via liposuction or liposuction for high-definition 6-pack Vaser liposuction.
Men also have breast reduction because they are embarrassed about going to the beach and often friends notice a sudden difference when their mate takes off their top more confidently at the beach or by the pool.
I suppose another factor has been that I have been interviewed about male breast reduction via liposuction on many occasions on national television and this has certainly branded our practice as one that does offer this service.
Also the procedure of the tumescent method was pioneered by a dermatologist. I am a specialist Australian qualified dermatologist who has obviously close connections to the pioneers of this procedure. I personally was involved in helping further develop its use, particularly in breast reduction for females. We performed the first and maybe the only large clinical study looking at the results of breast reduction in females via liposuction alone.
DO I NEED TO BE ASLEEP FOR THE LIPOSUCTION BREAST REDUCTION MALE ?
No. Most men who have a breast reduction via liposuction method alone or with the small incision of the skin afterwards have it whilst they are awake under local anesthetic. There is no need for general anesthetic or anesthetist. Occasionally a patient does want to be asleep and we can arrange that. The liposuction procedure starts with the local anesthetic. There is a small sting under the skin. After a few seconds the area becomes numb. Generally speaking, the procedure after that is painless or with very little pain.
DO GYM FANATICS OR BODY BUILDERS HAVE MALE BREAST REDUCTION?
Yes. This is a common procedure for Dr. Lanzer to perform as body builders often get gynecomastia. Sometimes it is related to the drugs that they take such as growth hormone and testosterone. Some supplements also cause gynecomastia. Dr. Lanzer tries to keep the cut or suction with the least amount of marks as possible so that they do not show up on competitions.
Sometimes, body builders undergo dehydration before the show and this unfortunately will bring out any residual bruising or marks.
ARE THERE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MALE BREASTS?
Yes. When one looks at all the photos of male breast reduction via liposuction on our website, one will notice that there are lots of different shapes and sizes. Some people have round female-type breasts. Others are smaller. Some have pointy ones and some have droopy ones. All types of sizes and shapes can be improved with the breast reduction.
WHAT IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL WITH MALE BREAST REDUCTION?
Generally speaking I may need to remove as much tissue as possible so that we can get the skin right onto the muscle. This is what gives the patient the most natural looking result.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE IS DROOPING OF SKIN?
Fortunately in liposuction and breast reduction through liposuction men find that the skin contracts and tightens in. It is very unusual for the need for actual skin removal or excision following the breast reduction.
WHY ARE SOME POST-BREAST REDUCTIONS FLAT CHESTED AND SOME MEN HAVE CURVED?
Ultimately, the end result is determined by the shape of the body. Some men have curved chests due to muscle shape and others are flat-chested. Dr. Lanzer will remove all the unwanted fat and tissue and what will remain is the underlying shape of one’s body. If somebody has been working on their muscle and has a big curved muscle then that is what they will see. If a man has a flat chest then they will see a flat chest.
ARE THERE ANY PARTICULAR ISSUES WITH MEN WHO HAVE OLIVE SKIN?
Yes. Any surgery on an olive-skinned person has a higher risk of residual marks or scarring. Olive skinned patients often develop pigmentation or brown marks wherever the skin is touched. Fortunately, these usually improve in time.
WHEN CAN GYM BE RECOMMENCED?
Most men can recommence gym within 2 weeks of the male breast reduction using the liposuction. If an incision is performed, Dr. Lanzer will make sure that patients will take it a little bit more care.
CAN ONE TELL ON PHOTOS IF A MAN HAS HAD A BREAST REDUCTION?
Generally speaking, one would not be able to tell on a photograph if a man has had the reduction. The incision is so small that there is no real obvious scarring.
WHY DOESN’T EVERYBODY USE YOUR TECHNIQUE OF MALE BREAST REDUCTION?
I cannot comment on other surgeon’s methods.
WE NOTE THAT THE COSTS OF MALE BREAST REDUCTION HAVE NOT CHANGED FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS. WHY IS THIS SO?
We try and keep our prices very fair. Since we have performed so much male breast reduction there is no need to make it too expensive.
HAVE YOU EVER PERFORMED MALE BREAST REDUCTION IN BROTHERS?
Yes. It is not uncommon for me to treat family members with the male breast enlargement. There is a genetic component and often once one family member has seen the results the others come is as well.
