Man boobs, moobs... we’ve all heard the terms, but excess fat and more importantly breast tissue in the male chest area can be due to a real medical condition known as gynaecomastia. It is important to distinguish between ‘real’ gynaecomastia where breast tissue is present and ‘pseudo’ or ‘false’ gynaecomastia which is usually due to excess weight and fat accumulation. Procedures exist to improve the appearance of the male chest in both cases, but it is important to seek a correct diagnosis.
Gynaecomastia is a medical term that comes from the Greek meaning female-like-breasts. This condition occurs when firm breast tissue forms in men. Surgery can reduce the size of these breasts.
Liposuction (also called lipoplasty, liposculpture or lipectomy) is a surgical technique for removing specific areas of stubborn fat that do not respond to a healthy diet and regular exercise.
Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL™) using the BodyTite™ device from Invasix Ltd provides minimally invasive body tightening and skin contraction.
VASER Lipo is a liposuction procedure performed using the VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) device, which uses ultrasound energy for a treatment known as Liposelection.
