VASER liposuction for streamlined treatment & easier recovery

Dr. Robert Caridi is one of the most innovative and trusted names in plastic surgery

While utilizing the most advanced technologies on the market and developing recognized treatments to provide Austin gynecomastia surgery patients with the best experience and results. VASER ultrasonic liposuction is a cutting-edge technology that employs sound energy to break up fat. This treatment allows for smaller incisions and gentler fat extraction, ultimately delivering a faster and easier recovery as part of gynecomastia surgery. Dr. Caridi employs this revolutionary modality for Male Breast Liposuction in Austin, TX, to remove excess fat and sculpt the male chest. This, in conjunction with the excision of gynecomastia tissue, allows Austin Gynecomastia Center to deliver the results you want.

What is VASER liposuction?

VASER (Vibrating Amplification of Sound Energy at resonance) delivers powerful sound waves beneath the skin’s surface to break up fat and separate it from surrounding tissues, allowing for gentler and more complete removal.

In addition, VASER liposuction allows for the use of a thinner cannula and smaller incisions than traditional liposuction alone. At Austin Gynecomastia Center, VASER liposuction happens before the surgical removal of the gynecomastia gland. VASER lipo does not remove the gland, but it helps improve the gynecomastia surgery process by removing other fat and tissue and reducing downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between male breast liposuction and gynecomastia surgery?

Male breast liposuction and gynecomastia surgery both involve the removal of excess fat from the chest. However, gynecomastia surgery also includes the removal of glandular tissue and excess skin. In addition, gynecomastia surgery may necessitate the repositioning of the nipple-areolar complex and can include excess skin removal and nipple repositioning if necessary. However, most cases do not involve excess skin removal or nipple repositioning.

Additional Reading

At Austin Gynecomastia Center, we do not perform male breast liposuction as a standalone procedure. Rather, we feel male breast liposuction and gynecomastia tissue removal together are the only method to truly deliver the best gynecomastia results.

Can I get liposuction of my abs/flanks during my gynecomastia procedure?

You can, but it is important to know that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. In general, the abdomen and flanks are areas that respond well to weight loss solutions, and if you are overweight, the simple solution may be to lose the weight. Liposuction of these areas in men who are overweight is not always appropriate and may lead to disappointment at some juncture. It is best to be close to your ideal weight (Body Mass Index) before considering liposuction of your abdomen and love handles.

How soon will I be able to work out after male breast liposuction?

You will be able to resume working out about ten days after your procedure. However, you will need to avoid exercising your chest muscles for a few weeks. Dr. Caridi will provide you with detailed instructions regarding your post-operative care and restrictions.

Will my skin be loose after my male breast liposuction?

Since liposuction decreases the amount of volume beneath the skin, removing a large amount of fat can cause loose skin. However, Dr. Caridi knows the right amount of fat to suction out for your skin to shrink around your post-procedure form naturally. In most cases, skin retraction will happen on its own, but the provided compression garment will also encourage the skin around your chest to lay down flat and tighten nicely.
