Why Choose Liposuction for Gynecomastia?
Liposuction is a safe and effective method for improving the contour of the male breast due to Gynecomastia (breast enlargement in males). Liposuction is the optimal choice when trying to avoid the scarring of traditional surgical methods of breast gland removal. Feeling good about the way you look is important to your emotional health. Let us support you on your journey of self-improvement.
What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is an enlargement of breast tissue in boys and men. An imbalance in estrogen hormones causes the breast gland to grow, resulting in firm tissue around the nipple that can feel tender. Persistent breast enlargement can negatively impact self-esteem and emotional health, especially in adolescent boys. Losing weight will not usually correct the problem if they have true glandular enlargement. Sadly, body shaming for boys and men is real and does occur in the locker room, school and at work. Fortunately, Gynecomastia can often be corrected with liposuction performed as an out-patient procedure.
How we are different.
Dr. Richard Bensimon has developed the Bensimon Micro Sculptor™ liposuction cannula intended for use in the treatment of Gynecomastia. This refined cannula allows for precise contouring without leaving marks on the skin. The Bensimon Micro Sculptor™ is a little, wand-like tool that is used to contour parts of the body. Because the wand is so small Dr. Bensimon is able to target troublesome spots and artistically sculpt the areas needing change. Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL), is a wonderful improvement to enhance this technique. Instead of relying on the surgeon’s hand to move the Liposuction tool, the Bensimon Micro Sculptor™ uses a powered handle that quickly and gently assists the “back and forth” motion. PAL is gentler on your tissues and is a more effective way of removing the fat and allows for a more complete result.
