Dr. Navjot Singh, at JustGoLipo is one of the leading gynecomastia surgery providers in Scottsdale, AZ, and specializes in the male breast reduction procedure via Vaser Liposuction combined with Renuvion. This surgery is minimally invasive and can result in increased self-esteem and self-confidence in addition to the removed excess male breast tissue.

What Is Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery is offered at our clinic as a minimally invasive treatment performed while the patient is awake and under local anesthesia. Men seek out this treatment to improve their bodies and contour the shape of their chests.

This surgery is often referred to as reduction mammaplasty or male breast reduction. It involves removing excess fatty tissue from one or both breasts and smoothing out the skin on the chest. This is often done through liposuction, not a surgical procedure.

What To Expect With JustGoLipo's Minimally Invasive Liposuction Technique To Treat Gynecomastia

At JustGoLipo, we perform the minimally invasive male breast reduction procedure to reduce excess fatty tissue surrounding the male breast area and improve the patient’s self-confidence and quality of life. Here’s what you will experience when having this plastic surgery with Dr. Singh.

  • Step 1 – Pronox for relaxation

    • Many patients feel a sense of anxiety or apprehension going into cosmetic surgery. Dr. Singh provides his patients with Pronox to relax and feel more comfortable during the gynecomastia procedure.

  • Step 2 – Tumescent for local anesthesia

    • Since patients are awake during the procedure, Tumescent is injected throughout the breast tissue to numb the entire chest. This way, the surgeon and patient can communicate. The patient is able to follow what is happening the whole time without feeling any discomfort. This technique allows a faster recovery and minimal downtime.

  • Step 3 – Vaser liposuction for smooth, long-lasting results

    • Next, the excess fat is removed from the enlarged breasts. Vaser is performed first to melt the fat and excess breast tissue. The male breast reduction Arizona is done right after suctioning the melted fat. This technique allows the fat to be removed easily and faster. It ensures smoothness and evenness, and only requires small incisions. The Vaser Lipo procedure allows the patient to have a fast recovery.

  • Optional Step 4 – Renuvion for skin tightening

    • At JustGoLipo we highly recommend the use of Renuvion with liposuction. It’s very true for patients with moderate to severe gynecomastia. Often when large amounts of excess fat are removed, the skin has a harder time tightening back on its own. Dr. Singh offers Renuvion, a skin-tightening device powered by helium gas, to help tighten the skin. This step is performed right after the liposuction, and gives patients long-lasting results.

Recovery After Gynecomastia Surgery

After you've undergone the procedure, your provider will give you specific instructions for healing and recovery.

Male breast reduction Gynecomastia surgery at JustGoLipo is an outpatient procedure, meaning that the patient will get to go home that same day, usually 30 minutes after the surgery.

Your doctor will prescribe a compression garment to be worn around the chest for a certain time so that the skin and chest can heal properly. This will also reduce swelling and encourage proper blood flow around the chest. You should wear this at all times unless your doctor gives you clearance to remove it.

Your provider might also limit certain physical activities and prescribe certain drugs for pain relief and to prevent infection. You'll probably be sore for a few days, but typically; most people feel back to normal within a week or so.

You'll get set up with follow-up appointments at which your surgeon will inspect your glandular tissue, scars, and chest for healing. If the gynecomastia was severe, you might see an initial change right away, although there will be swelling and tissue upset. However, these will continue to improve and most patients report that they see full results within three to six months. Gynecomastia procedures provide permanent results; however, depending on the case, sometimes more than one procedure is necessary to achieve the desired masculine form

Who Is A Good Candidate For Gynecomastia Surgery?

Your Scottsdale, AZ surgeon can answer all your specific questions about whether or not you are a good candidate for gynecomastia. It's an elective procedure, so it's not usually covered by insurance, but financing options are available.

At your initial consultation, we will ask you about your health history, any prescriptions you're taking, allergies, and other procedures you've undergone. We will ask you what you've tried previously to reduce your excess breast tissue and gather information about how to reduce your gynecomastia best.
