Millions of men and boys have enlarged breasts. Gynecomastia or “man boobs” as they are unkindly called, are a source of much embarrassment for the affected. Hormonal changes during puberty and the intake of certain drugs are largely held responsible for the condition. Typically, the breasts shrink to normal size within a few years, but many men live with the condition for the rest of their lives. So far, treatment was confined to surgery and medication, and results have been far from satisfactory. Now, BodyTiteTM, the body contouring system that features radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) technology, has changed all that. Plastic surgeons have recently discovered that BodyTite liposuction is the right treatment for gynecomastia and can offer an amazing outcome.
Effective Breast Reduction with Advanced RFAL Technology
Male breast enlargement is characterized by the accumulation of glandular tissue under the areola, and sometimes outside the areola, giving it a dome-shaped appearance. The condition can affect one breast or both. The breast tissue becomes hard over time and is therefore difficult to remove. This is where BodyTite liposuction wins.
This advanced device uses patented radiofrequency assisted liposuction (RFAL™) technology. Its handpiece delivers RFAL energy from an inner cannula to an external electrode. This is how it works to resolve gynecomastia:
One of the most unique features of BodyTite is its simultaneous aspiration-coagulation capability. Gynecomastia treatment with this exceptional device can therefore be a quick, one-step procedure.
Safe and Effective Treatment for Gynecomastia
Liposuction treatment for male breast reduction using this radio frequency powered technology is safe. BodyTite is designed to precisely target and measure the heat build-up in the treatment site. This allows the surgeon to control the delivery of heat and prevent injury to the surrounding tissue.
The procedure requires only local anesthesia, minimizing anesthesia patient risk. Other benefits include significant body contour improvement, comprehensive liposuction and skin tightening effects, and results that improve with time.
Though BodyTite liposuction is undoubtedly the right treatment for gynecomastia, only a skilled and experienced surgeon can ensure the proper application of RFAL to avoid thermal damage. Locating an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery center is also important.
