Is surgery the only way to get rid of gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a condition where men have enlarged breast tissue. This can develop during puberty or in later years as a result of hormonal changes in male physiology. You can get rid of gynecomastia with our help at Mentor Plastic Surgery. It can also be the result of taking prescription medications, steroids, or marijuana. For years, the only treatment was surgery by direct excision through large incisions. But today, I can very successfully treat Gynecomastia with the minimally invasive options of VASER Liposelection and Renuvion.

VASER LipoSelection is an advanced body contouring procedure that selectively removes unwanted body fat using state-of-the-art ultrasound technology. VASER LipoSelection can differentiate targeted fat from other important tissues, such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. Innovative VASER ultrasound technology breaks up fat while preserving these other important tissues to promote smooth results and rapid healing.

Once the excess breast tissue and fat are removed, especially for men who have a larger amount of it, there is a good amount of sagging skin. That’s where Renuvion is utilized, using a combination of helium plasma and radiofrequency energy to tighten skin without additional incisions or longer recovery associated with surgical skin excision. The Renuvion energy causes the skin to tighten while stimulating the production of collagen.

For many men, this condition of having excess breast tissue causes anxiety about their appearance, which can lead to lasting insecurities in their self-image and confidence. It may lead some men to shy away from social or intimate interactions. Through this modern non-invasive technology, I can help men have a firmer and flatter chest with less scarring and a faster recovery.
