Eating right, participating in sports or other regular vigorous activity, and working out in the gym are all good. And yet, all that effort still may not be enough to produce the masculine-looking chest every guy wants.
For one thing, you can’t control everything. A condition called gynecomastia causes enlarged breast tissue in some men that may have nothing to with gaining weight. Some guys lose weight only to find their breasts still look puffy. And as you get older, your skin loses elasticity which can cause chest tissue to look saggy.
Whatever the reason, enlarged breast tissue can make you self-conscious. And it’s certainly frustrating.
At Eterna Cosmetic Surgery, We Can Help
Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez is skilled and experienced using a variety of modern techniques to enhance male chest contouring:
Patients with good skin elasticity benefit from VASERlipo, a gentler type of liposuction that removes excess fat, enabling Dr. Hernandez to contour fat to create a smooth, flat chest.
VASER Hi-Def Lipo
This advanced form of VASERlipo allows Dr. Hernandez to dramatically re-contour fat surrounding chest muscle groups, to create a highly-sculpted appearance.
This treatment uses gentle radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and also melt unwanted fat to improve surface smoothness.
This is a radiofrequency microneedling treatment that firms the skin and remodels the fat just underneath the skin, to produce even greater results. A series of Morpheus8 treatments alone can be very effective to firm the skin, improve the texture of the skin, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks or surgical scars.
In most cases, Dr. Hernandez can use non-surgical treatment options to reduce fat and re-contour your chest as you desire. However, there are times when the best approach involves surgical removal of the breast glands.
All of these treatment options are safe and effective. All can be performed as in-office procedures using local anesthesia, so you can achieve the amount of change you want without the time commitment, pain, and cost of surgery that requires a hospital or surgical center. And all produce permanent results – as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and, especially, a stable weight.
Gynecomastia surgery requires the longest downtime for recovery – typically several days – whereas non-surgical options usually require resting only for the day of your procedure and the following day. After that, you can start returning to normal daily activities.
How Do You Know Which Is Best?
Your age, the condition of your skin, the amount of fat you wish to lose, and your ultimate appearance goals all help Dr. Hernandez to determine the best treatment plan for you. She is particularly adept at combining treatment options to produce individually tailored results.
“Frequently,” she explains, “men have looseness in the skin along with excess fat so they benefit from contouring with BodyTite, VASERlipo and Morpheus8. Much less frequently, they may have enlarged breast glands which requires surgical removal along with BodyTite, VASERlipo and Morpheus8.” On the other hand, some men, especially younger men with good skin elasticity, only need VASERlipo.
So she usually recommends liposuction alone to reduce excess fat when patients have good skin elasticity. If you do have some skin laxity, even if it’s still minor, then she will recommend BodyTite instead because it also firms the skin. When she contours the chest with BodyTite, she also performs VASERlipo and Morpheus8. This combination allows her to maximize the results in just a single treatment session. You get the fat reduction you want plus firmer, smoother skin and natural-looking masculine contouring.
