Hi All,

Just curious as to why more well renowned gynecomastia surgeons aren't utilizing bodytite or j plasma for skin tightening for the chest and the side chest areas. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as I am fairly lean and i still have some very mild skin laxity! 

Quick clarification: this would be in addition to liposuction!

This is a good question and a hot topic now.  This technology is finding its footing whether it is really worth it or not.  The body tight is showing promise and surgeons and non-surgeons are using it more and more.  It sounds like you may be a good candidate due to minimal laxity however is the result that you receive worth the cost?  Also, J plasma is used but I am not hearing any significant results from patients. It seems to be an add-on to surgery more often. The good thing is that these procedures are relatively non-invasive and have no or minimal harm. Please report back if you have it done.

Hi Dr.Delgado,

What I am having trouble with is finding a well recognized/respected surgeon who performs both liposuction and bodytite. Would you possibly be able to recommend anyone thats experienced with gynecomastia surgery that has access to utilize bodytite aswell??

Thank you for your question. I can only speak for myself. The reason I do not offer these is that I am not seeing that they are superior in terms of the technique I use for skin tightening. When performing liposuction, I have developed my own technique for utilizing it as a skin tightening procedure as well. There is no need for me to introduce another device during surgery. 

I do not personally know of any gynecomastia experts who offer BodyTite or the J Plasma, so I can't offer a referral. 

Best of luck,
