Male Breast reduction, AZ
Male Breast Reduction | Scottsdale, AZ
Gynecomastia, a medical condition where male breast tissue enlarges, can affect one or both breasts, sometimes asymmetrically, often leading to emotional distress and self-consciousness. The causes of gynecomastia are varied and can include hormonal imbalances (such as an increase in estrogen or a decrease in testosterone), certain medications, underlying health problems (liver or kidney disease), obesity, and age-related changes. In Scottsdale, Arizona, gynecomastia is a relatively common condition. It is estimated that about 50-60% of adolescent males experience some form of gynecomastia during puberty, and in adult males, the prevalence is around 20-30%. Men in Scottsdale experiencing gynecomastia can find solace in knowing they are not alone and that effective treatments and support are available locally.
Our Scottsdale, AZ, board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Carlos Mata and Dr. Martin Benjamin, offer male breast reduction surgery to effectively treat gynecomastia, giving the chest a more masculine look. They use a minimally invasive approach with Vaser Liposuction (an ultrasound technique) and a one-stitch technique to minimize scarring. Additionally, they can incorporate Magic Tight® into the procedure to address and prevent skin laxity.
One Stitch Gynecomastia Surgical Technique
1 — TUMESCENT VASER LIPOSUCTION
The surgical technique of Lipo used by Scottsdale Liposuction specialists Dr. Carlos Mata and Dr. Benjamin always follows the three-step technique. This three-step technique allows liposuction to be performed safely with minimal scarring while giving smoother results and a faster recovery. The first step is tumescent, a numbing solution used to numb the entire chest to control bleeding and reduce pain during & after surgery. The second step is Vaser, an ultrasound device that breaks down fat cells and breast tissue. This device helps improve liposuction results and allows our surgeons to use only one small incision to remove the breast tissue partially melted from Vaser. The last step is assisted lipo: a cannula connected to a vacuum to suction the fat and breast tissue from the chest. These three steps will break down and remove most of the breast and fatty tissue from the chest, but extra gland tissue needs to be removed manually.

One Stitch Gynecomastia Recovery
A typical CellSound session begins with a preliminary consultation conducted by our experienced staff to assess your unique areas of concern and tailor the treatment to your specific needs. Once the targeted area is prepared, we will apply CellSound’s ultrasound technology. This involves therapeutic sound waves that penetrate the skin to target subcutaneous and visceral fat.
As your body responds to these sound waves, a gentle heat is generated, aiding in the breakdown of the fat cells. These disrupted fat cells are then naturally processed and eliminated by your body, offering immediate results. The session concludes with a brief cool-down period to ensure comfort and safety.
Long-term recovery from the surgery to remove excessive breast tissue involves minimal scarring, thanks to the one-stitch surgical treatment. However, following Dr. Carlos Mata and Dr. Benjamin’s guidelines for scar care is essential for optimal healing. The final aesthetic results of male breast reduction AZ may take up to six months to become fully apparent, necessitating regular follow-up appointments to track your progress.
