Male Breast Reduction
"When I extended my hand to greet the gentleman in the examination room, he wrapped his big arms around me and said in his British accent, “You have no idea what this means to me. I can now go to the beach with my grandson and swim with him. I can wear a shirt without pockets on each side!"
Male breast enlargement (gynecomastia), often called “man boobs,” has a number of medical causes including pubescent hormones and medication side effects, but the majority of persistent cases are simply caused by a genetic predisposition which creates a fat deposit over the pectoralis muscle, mimicking female breasts. The solution is simple: a forty-five minute, inoffice treatment using only local anesthesia called Smartlipo™. During the Smartlipo™ procedure, a laser wand is inserted through tiny, hidden, need-stick incisions, and then the extra fat is gently melted away. Downtime after Smartlipo™ is short, and the results are lasting.* As attested to by the English chap above, males of all ages, including teenagers, now have a simple, safe, and effective method to laser away what could be a lifelong impediment, resulting in a more positive self image and comfortability with one’s appearance.*
