Liposuction, or lipoplasty, is used in many cosmetic procedures to help improve body contouring by removing excess fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction for men can address several areas of concern, one of the most common being enlarged breasts.
Medically known as gynecomastia, male breast enlargement is a condition in which excess fat and/or glandular tissues accumulate in a man’s breasts and is believed to occur in patients who produce more estrogen than testosterone. Gynecomastia surgery involves removing fatty deposits with lipoplasty. Excess tissue is typically removed through a small incision made in the underarm or near the areola.
Lipoplasty may also be used to remove fat from the following areas:
- Neck, jowls, and chin
- Love handles and abdominal region
