Men, Their Chests and Vaser Lipo Liposelection
‘Moobs’, ‘Man boobs’, call them what you want – but unwanted fatty tissue in the chest region (sometimes known as Gynecomastia) is becoming a common issue for many men, and it can often be embarrassing and problematic for the male. However, did you know that last year the amount of ‘man boob’ plastic and cosmetic surgery operations rose by a staggering 80% from 2008?
Many people have suggested that the rise in ‘man boobs’ has stemmed from the rise in obesity, but really ‘moobs’ have been an issue for many men for many years, and the rise in operations could in fact be due to the social acceptance of such cosmetic surgery procedures and the increased availability of them.
There are three types of ‘Moobs’:
o Pseudogynecomastia – where the ‘moob’ is literally only made up of fat.
o Gynecomastia – where the ‘moob’ is much like a female breast in the fact it is made up of breast tissue.
o Both – the most common form of ‘moob’, when it is formed from a mixture of fatty and breast tissue.
Evidently, each case of Gynecomastia will differ from man to man and the types of surgery available will depend on the type of tissue within the chest area. However, one of the most effective treatments for removing unwanted fat from the chest area is Vaser Lipo Liposelection, which involves the use of ultrasounds to liquefy fat for easier and more effective removal. Here at botonics we offer treatments for this type of fat removal and with the innovative technology, Vaser, the scarring and bruising afterwards is minimal and recovery time is generally really fast.
