Why we recommend VASER Lipo as a treatment for Male Breast Reduction?
VASER Lipo is a proven and popular male breast reduction technique too remove excess fatty tissue and excess breast tissue. It uses ultrasound waves to break down fat cells before removing them with suction through a small tube. The day procedure provides advanced body contouring while being minimally invasive.
What distinguishes the VASER Lipo procedure is its ability to differentiate targeted fat from other important tissues, such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. Innovative Vaser technology breaks up fat while preserving these other important tissues to promote smooth results and rapid healing.
The minimally-invasive process is gentle on the body can be extremely effective. Other benefits include less pain and recovery time than traditional liposuction.
Will Vaser Pro Lipo give my desired results?
This will depend on the severity of the enlarged breasts. Some patients may only need Vaser Pro Lipo whereas others may require Vaser Pro Lipo, Breast Tissue Excision and J Plasma Renuvion Skin Tightening, or even a surgical breast lift. Individual cases will be assessed at a consultation with Dr Glenn Murray. Some patients notice that their chest area does not decrease comparatively with other areas after weight loss. If a patient feels that they have loose skin after weight-loss, we are the only clinic in Western Australia to offer J Plasma Renuvion Skin Tightening.
What happens before the Male Breast Reduction procedure?
Smoking and illicit drug use must be strictly avoided before the procedure. We take smoking very seriously as a high risk for any procedure, so you must be aware of the cancellation policy if you smoke. Smoking increases the risk of some serious complications during and after surgery. Ideally, you should stop smoking at least 8-weeks prior to a procedure, cutting down does not reduce the risk of complications, however, the greatest health benefit is gained by quitting smoking for good. More information about the possible complications, as well as information about how to quit, is available here.
You should be fit and healthy, and avoid blood thinning medication such as aspirin and anti-inflammatory medicine. You must fast on the day of the procedure. You are able to eat dinner as usual the night before, then you must stop drinking fluids at midnight. On the morning of the procedure you can take a small sip of water to take your pre-surgery medication.
At least 2 consultations are needed before most procedures. A full history and examination will be conducted. You will be started on antibiotics and extensive instructions will be given.
