Male Breast Reduction – Gynaecomastia Perth

08 Jan 2015

Gynaecomastia is a medical condition characterized by the enlargement of breast tissue in males. It results in the appearance of breasts that may be swollen, tender, or have a firm or rubbery texture. This condition can occur at any age but is most common during infancy, puberty, and older age.

Gynaecomastia is caused by an imbalance in the hormones estrogen and testosterone. Estrogen, often considered a female hormone, can be present in males in small amounts. When the balance between estrogen and testosterone is disrupted, either due to hormonal changes, medications, or underlying health conditions, it can lead to the development of gynaecomastia. Other potential cases can include various medications, obesity, recreational drugs, and certain medical conditions. In many cases, the cause of a patient’s gynaecomastia is unknown. Regardless of the cause, surgical male breast reduction will be an effective solution.

Vaser Pro Liposuction can be an effective treatment option for gynaecomastia, especially in cases where the enlargement of breast tissue is due to excess fat rather than glandular tissue.

  1. Fat Removal: Vaser Pro Liposuction uses ultrasound energy to selectively target and break down fat cells in the treatment area. During the procedure, small incisions are made, and a thin cannula is inserted to deliver ultrasound energy, which liquefies the fat cells. Prior to the insertion of the cannula, tumescent is distrubted around the area to help numb and disrupt the fat cells in the targeted area. The liquefied fat is then removed from the body through suction.
  2. Precision: Vaser Pro Liposuction allows for precise contouring of the chest area, enabling Dr Glenn Murray (AHPRA Registration MED0001196978. Registered Medical Practitioner) to remove excess fat while preserving surrounding tissues, including nerves and blood vessels.

While Vaser liposuction can be an effective treatment option for gynaecomastia, it is a legal requirement for any individual to obtain a GP referral prior to meeting with Dr Glenn Murray (AHPRA Registration MED0001196978. Registered Medical Practitioner), an additional consultation and a 7 day cooling off period before booking in the procedure. We also suggest obtaining a second opinion to ensure that you are happy your decision to partner with the Absolute team.
