The Ideal Candidate

Smokers and those with blood clotting problems might be advised to avoid this procedure. It is very important to have realistic expectations, which your surgeon will help you with during your consultation. While you will obtain results right away, it is important to mention that these results will continue to improve over time. Your participation in all of our instructions and lifestyle advice is essential to achieving success. Ideal candidates for male breast reduction include patients who:

  • Are close to their ideal body weight
  • Do not have any serious health conditions
  • Have breast development that has stabilized
  • Are not on any medications that inhibit healing

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a condition in which males have excess glands and tissue in their chest, giving the appearance of breasts. It is usually caused by an imbalance in the male and female hormones in the body. If a male produces too little testosterone and too much estrogen they can develop what's known to many as man boobs. There can also be other causes for excessive breast tissue in men. This condition can often become apparent in early adolescence but usually corrects itself naturally as males get older.

If it doesn't go away by the time a male reaches adulthood, there could be medical or even genetic factors at play. Some of the other common causes of gynecomastia include:

  • Genetics: If there is a family history of this hormonal imbalance
  • Certain Cancers: There are cancers of certain glands that can cause the hormonal imbalance
  • Medications: Some medications have been known to cause excessive tissue to form
  • Aging: Some men experience hormone shifts as they age
  • Weight Gain or Loss: Fluctuations in weight can cause excessive breast tissue to form

Your Informative Consultation

At Avalon Lipo & Aesthetics, we value the safety of each of our patients. That's why we’ll visit with you during your consultation to ensure that you're a candidate for any of the various procedures we offer. Since we use a combination of liposuction procedures for male breast reduction, we require that you meet certain qualifications to be a candidate for the procedure. We’ll help you land on the procedure that’s right for you. Once you are scheduled for a consultation with Dr. Tirgari, he will ask you about your medical history to learn more about any past conditions as well as your lifestyle and physical health. He will also give you an idea of how much fat can be reduced in your problem area and what results can be obtained from the procedure. Once you’ve decided to undergo male breast reduction, Dr. Tirgari will schedule you for the surgery.

The Procedure and Recovery

Given his education and special training, Dr. Tirgari can perform tumescent liposuction on the chest. With this technique, you are given local anesthesia instead of the general anesthesia used in traditional liposuction. You will also be given a sedative to make you relaxed and slightly sedated while the procedure is being performed. Next, Dr. Tirgari will insert a laser-guided cannula or suctioning device into the area beneath the top layers of the skin called the subcutaneous area. This is where the fat cells are deposited. He will then move the laser instrument back and forth to reach all the fat deposits that need to be melted. Once the fat is converted into a liquefied form, it will be suctioned out from the chest. This process also promotes the release of collagen, which makes the skin of the treated area tighter.

Your Recovery Period

After your procedure at our facility, you will be given some recovery time, after which you are free to leave the clinic as long as you feel good and you have a ride. You will head out with post-operative instructions as well as pain medications, should you need them. You will fully recover within just a few days, though you will be advised not to exercise or perform any vigorous physical activities for a few weeks. In some cases, Dr. Tirgari will administer surgical garments to aid in the healing process. Follow-up care will also be scheduled by Dr. Tirgari who will see you to make sure that the incisions are healing normally, and that the desired results were obtained. We’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions and a thorough timeline for your recovery experience.
