Gynaecomastia is the medical term for overdeveloped breast tissue in men. It can be the result of excess fat deposition in and around normal glandular tissue in which case a healthy diet and regular exercise should be sufficient to reduce this. However, in certain cases, stubborn amounts of fat and well developed glandular tissue remain, no matter how much exercise is done. This type of gynaecomastia usually has a hormonal component and hence some form of cosmetic treatment is normally required. The psychological distress that is associated with gynaecomastia is very well documented and at Rejuvence Clinic we take this very seriously.

What treatments are currently available for gynaecomastia?

Previously treatment for gynaecomastia was restricted to surgery and involved carrying out a breast reduction with excision of the glandular tissue. This was associated with a prolonged downtime and the potential for complications. More recently, with advances in liposuction technology, it is possible to carry out treatments under local anaesthetic without the need for invasive surgery and at the same time produce better more harmonious aesthetic results. VASER liposuction is considered by many to be the liposuction technique of choice. At Rejuvence Clinic we advocate VASER liposuction for the treatment of gynaecomastia and in combination with J-Plazty – exclusively available at Rejuvence Clinic – we are confident of achieving superior results.

How is VASER liposuction performed?

VASER is a minimally invasive procedure performed under local anaesthetic. Small incisions are made just below and above the chest to provide entry for the VASER probes. Following administration of local anaesthetic and appropriate numbing of the of the back of the arm the VASER probe is inserted under the skin into the fatty areas. This transmits ultrasound energy that subsequently liquefies fat leaving surrounding adjacent structures in tact. A suction device is then inserted and through a gentle suction process removes the fat. The ultrasound energy also helps to stimulate the surrounding skin and help with some skin tightening. Where the breast glands are particularly well developed they are excised under local anaesthetic.

Who is a candidate for vaser gynaecomastia?

The typical candidates for VASER Gynaecomastia are males more than 20 years of age who have developed loose skin and excess fat around the pectoralis muscles with overdeveloped breast glands.

Why choose Rejuvence Clinic?

VASER liposuction is a very effective treatment for gynaecomastia. What sets us apart from the rest is the advent of J-Plazty. We are the only clinic in the UK that offers J-Plazty powered by J-Plasma. This revolutionary technology provides phenomenal skin tightening. Following VASER liposuction moderate amounts of fat can be removed but often you are left with loose and excess skin. The combination of VASER and J-Plazty provides for efficient fat removal and phenomenal skin tightening that ensures a fantastic result. For further details please book a consultation.

VASER stands for Vibration of Sound Energy at Resonance. Essentially the VASER probes emit ultrasound energy that specifically targets fat cells leaving other tissues intact. The fat is subsequently emulsified (melted) by the ultrasound energy and can then be suctioned away using gentle suction probes. There is minimal damage to the surrounding muscle and fascia. VASER is an extremely gentle form of liposuction with some associated skin tightening and hence makes it a great option for gynaecomastia.

The downtime from VASER liposuction is relatively short. Following the procedure clients are asked to wear a compression garment for the first 72 hours and then continue to wear this every night for the next 4 weeks. There can be some oozing from the incision sites that are often left to heal naturally. There is minimal pain associated with the procedure and paracetamol will often suffice. We recommend our clients take 4 to 5 days off work. It is advisable to avoid any strenuous exercise for at least 2 weeks.

The results of VASER liposuction will be noticeable soon after the procedure within the first week. The results will continue to improve over the course of 2 to 3 months as there is continued skin contracture and generation of new collagen and elastin.
