Male Chest Reduction

We offer 2 treatments for male chest reduction: VASER Lipo and MicroLipo. The Private Clinic’s doctors have performed literally thousands of lipo-contouring treatments, including close to 2000 VASER Lipo treatments each year, more than any other clinic in Europe. We have also performed over 1500 MicroLipo procedures. 

Over 35% of our lipo patients are men and the chest area is one of the most common problem areas.

The Problem

Gynecomastia – more commonly known as man boobs – affects around 15% of adult men in the UK and is caused when excess fat develops in a man’s breast area. This fat can be very hard to shift, even if a weight loss plan has worked for the rest of the body, and the resulting ‘man boobs’ can cause embarrassment and can undermine confidence. The good news is there are safe, effective ways to tackle this problem that don’t involve surgery or long recovery periods - with our body contouring procedures.

The Procedure

We offer 2 types of minimally invasive treatments for 'moob' reduction: VASER Lipo and MicroLipo.

VASER Lipo

VASER Liposuction is a minimally invasive treatment for gynecomastia that can give you the body you want, without the pain and risk of major surgery and without the need of general anaesthetic. It is less invasive than traditional liposuction and, because it differentiates between fat and important tissues such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues, the risk of damage to these tissues is practically eliminated.

With VASER liposuction, the fat is liquefied and removed from the body through a gentle suction process. Less invasive than traditional liposuction, VASER lipo is a walk-in walk-out procedure which doesn’t require a hospital stay or long time away from work or sport activities. Results are very soft and natural looking.

For patients who prefer a very athletic, sculpted look, VASER High Definition is a better option. Click here for our gallery of before and after photos and to see the difference between standard VASER and VASER High Definition.

MicroLipo

Featured on Tatler's 2011 Guide of Beauty and Cosmetic Surgery, the Microcannulas Technique or MicroLipo is also ideal for male breast reduction. Cannulas less than 3 mm in diameter are used to remove the fat, which means there is less risk of irregularities and depressions in the skin compared to regular liposuction.

Both VASER and MicroLipo are carried out under local anaesthetic, so you’ll feel no pain during your treatment.

The Results

Pockets of fat in your chest area can successfully be removed, improving the overall shape and contours of your body. You will see results straight away. However, your chest area will show the most improvement in the months after the procedure.

Downtime

Downtime is minimal and you can get back to your daily routine almost immediately for many procedures. However, because there may be some bruising and swelling, it’s best to wait one to two weeks before you hit the gym or do any other rigorous physical activity. Many of our procedures allow patients to return to work within 48-72 hours.

FAQs

hide
  • What Does the Treatment Involve?

    With VASER Lipo, the fat is liquefied and removed from the body through a gentle suction process. MicroLipo utilises a similar process, but uses micro cannulas to minimise disruption to the body and does not use VASER probes to break down the fat.

    Far less invasive than traditional liposuction, VASER Lipo and MicroLipo are walk-in walk-out procedures which don't require hospital stays or long times away from work or sport activities. Results are very soft and natural looking. Both procedures are typically performed under local anaesthetic, helping you recover quicker with less risks.

    You can consider our VASER High-Def procedure if you are looking for ultimate definition and body contouring. Sometimes all the hard work at the gym can feel undone by stubborn fat, and VASER High-Def can sculpt the fat away and emphasise muscles.

  • Does the Procedure Hurt?

    Both VASER Lipo and MicroLipo are carried out under local anaesthetic, so you’ll feel no pain during your treatment. You may experience some discomfort, but this is usually minimal. The downtime involved is minimal as well, allowing you to return to work quickly and most importantly comfortably.

  • How Long Does the Procedure Take?

    The procedures generally last between 1 and 2 hours. As they are performed under local anaesthetic you will be able to recover quickly after the procedure.

  • How Soon Will I See the Results?

    You will see results straight away. However, your chest area will show the most improvement in the months after the procedure.

  • How Long Will the Results Last?

    Once the fat has been removed it is gone for good and, if you follow a healthy diet and exercise plan, your man boobs will be gone for good too!

  • Are There Any Complications Associated with the Procedure?

    There will be some swelling and bruising after the procedure, however this is considerably less that you’d experience with traditional liposuction techniques. We’ll give you a special compression garment to wear after treatment which will help minimise swelling and bruising.  As always there are risks involved with any procedure, but our medical team are so experienced and well trained that risks and complications are kept to a minimum.
