Excess breast tissue in men, also known as gynecomastia, is a common condition that is often temporary. However, gynecomastia can cause embarrassment and self-consciousness if it persists. Many factors contribute to the development of gynecomastia, including genetics, lifestyle choices, hormonal fluctuations, and the use of alcohol and certain drugs. Gynecomastia surgery can be performed to remove excess tissue and fat to provide a more masculine chest contour.
Ideal candidates for gynecomastia surgery are men who have excess breast tissue or fat in the chest. Patients should be non-smokers in good general health.
At Hotchandani Laser, Vein & Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Hotchandani uses Vaser before liposuction. A special cannula to break up hard breast tissue helps to avoid large incision in most cases. He also uses Renuvion for skin tightening (Trademark name ReNUplasty) where he uses combination of Vaser liposuction and Renuvion for optimal results under local anesthesia avoiding general anesthesia and associated side effects.
