Number of male chest reduction procedures double in 5 years

A recent survey in the press reveals that the number of male’s turning to surgery to rid themselves of ‘man boobs’ has doubled over the past 5 years.

Gynecomastia, or ‘man boobs’ as the condition is better known, affects around 15% of adult men in the UK. It is caused by excess fat developing in a man’s breast area. This fat can be hard to shift, even though exercise and rigorous dieting, and the resulting ‘man boobs’ can be a cause for embarrassment and undermined confidence.

Figures show from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) show that 790 men underwent a chest reduction procedure in 2011 to remove their ‘moobs’. In 2016, the number was half this figure and it 2017 rose by 0.3%.

VASER liposuction is a minimally invasive treatment for Gynecomastia. It is a  popular choice amongst sufferers, as it can help them achieve the body image they want without having to undertake the pain and risk of major surgery, or the need for a 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. The advanced technology associated with the treatment breaks down the fat cells, which are then removed through a suction process.
