Male Liposuction

What Is Male Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes pockets of stubborn fat that cannot be eliminated with exercise and nutrition alone. Modern techniques reduce tissue trauma while maintaining a natural appearance. Male liposuction describes a series of techniques that are used by our board certified plastic surgeons to remove unwanted fat and enhance the masculine aspects of the treatment area.

Male Liposuction Benefits

More and more men in the Dallas area are learning the benefits of male liposuction. Some of the most common reasons that men consider liposuction are:

  • Eliminating exercise-resistant fat
  • Giving themselves a boost in body fat reduction that increases their drive to continue living a healthy, active lifestyle
  • Enhance the definition of muscles
  • Improving how clothes fit
  • Can be used to refine the results of other male plastic surgery procedures, such as a male tummy tuck

Who Is A Good Candidate For Male Liposuction?

If you are looking for a way to lose weight, male liposuction may not be right for you. You should be within 30% of your ideal weight before you are considered a good candidate for the procedure. You also need to have good skin elasticity. Otherwise, the procedure will remove fat, but leave you with sagging skin in the treatment area.

MEN CONSIDERING GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY!!

Gynecomastia… Man boobs… There are many nicknames for it. Some more suitable for publication than others. But, no matter what you call it, if you’re a man, you do not want any part of it! You hate the way it looks and the way it makes you feel and you’re ready to do something about it. Now its time to arm yourself with information in order to find the right surgeon to help take care of the issue.
Gynecomastia is not simply an abundance of fat in the chest area that liposuction can deal with effectively. Fat is just the half of it. The other half is the breast gland itself. Yes. Men have glandular tissue in the chest that can respond to hormone changes and increase in size. In rare cases, the glandular tissue of the male breast can even develop cancer just as it can in women.
Surgery to correct gynecomastia is becoming more and more popular for men. However, in monitoring question and answer sites like RealSelf.com, it is evident that men are reporting having disappointing results from their surgery. To properly address gynecomastia, attention must be paid to both the fatty and glandular components of the condition. Liposuction alone can address the fat, but liposuction alone will not completely treat gynecomastia. The glandular component must also be removed to give satisfying results. The surgeons at Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas are the only
When meeting with a surgeon, ask him or her what the plan is to deal with the gland. The gland must be directly removed to completely treat gynecomastia. Typically, this entails an incision along the lower half of the nipple/areola complex (NAC). This allows access to the glandular tissue to be directly removed. Great! Problem is, it can leave the NAC looking “operated on”. Effective, aesthetic treatment of gynecomastia requires an experienced surgeon and is Board Certified by the Society of Plastic Surgeons

Gynecomastia Revision Surgery

Gynecomastia Revision Surgery

Displeased with the results of your gynecomastia surgery? You are not alone. Gynecomastia surgery, like all surgery, is all about attention to detail. The details, in this case, are identifying and treating each component of what comprises gynecomastia. Gynecomastia, or enlargement of the male breast typically has three major components.

The first is the fatty component. This is typically approached effectively by the surgeon with liposuction. A small incision is made, fluid containing local anesthetic and a vasoconstricting agent is injected into the area, and a cannula is used to remove the fatty component of the gynecomastia and contour the chest to a masculine appearance. The second component, which is often overlooked or undertreated by surgeons, is the glandular component. The glandular material cannot be treated adequately with liposuction alone, whether it be conventional suction assisted liposuction or ultrasonic or laser liposuction.

To adequately address the glandular component, the gland must be removed. This means separating the gland from the skin above it and from the pectoralis major muscle beneath it. The goal of surgery is to remove the fat and the glandular material between the skin and the muscle and then encourage the skin to redrape over the muscle properly. This is typically achieved with a compression vest and foam material to compress the skin on to the muscle. This also helps prevent complications such as hematoma or fluid collection under the skin.

The final component of gynecomastia is the diameter of the areola. In most cases of gynecomastia, the areola is enlarged and puffy. By thinning the sub areolar tissue, the puffiness will be addressed and typically the areola will shrink. If you think you may have gynecomastia or are displeased with the results of previous surgery, call to schedule a complimentary consultation.

Gynecomastia revision surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under a general anesthetic. and takes 1-1.5 hours in experienced hands. Recovery time is usually 3-4 weeks with restriction of arm movement for the first week.

Gynecomastia In Plano, TX.

Gynecomastia In Plano, TX.

Gynecomastia is a term that refers to the enlargement of the glandular tissue of the male breast. This condition can often be the source of significant distress and self-conciousness causing men to avoid situations where they would take off their shirt, such as the pool or beach or even the gym locker room.
Once the condition develops, it is difficult to reverse, short of surgery. Surgical treatment is aimed at removal of the enlarged gland and contouring the chest to a more masculine appearance.
At the Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas, Dr. Wilcox and Dr. Morrissey approach gynecomastia in such a way as to avoid distortion of the nipple that creates an “operated on” look that is often seen after common approaches to gynecomastia.
