What Is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia or “man boobs” is a common problem area because there are a limited number of exercise routines that can be done to burn the fat on this area. A cosmetic treatment by an experienced liposuction surgeon is truly the only option if you want to achieve permanent results.

Please watch the video below where Dr. Tirgari discusses liposuction for men:

The Male Breast Reduction Procedure

Given his education and special training, Dr. Tirgari can perform tumescent liposuction on the chest of the male client. 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 on 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.

Because Dr. Tirgari combines the use of tumescent lipo, laser lipo and SmartLipo, you will achieve great results within an hour or so. You are then able to go home and recover for just a few days. Then you move on with your life, loving your results.
