Male Breast Reduction and Loose Skin

Gynecomastia Surgery and Loose Skin

BodyTite is liposuction that has a duel treatment. Along with liposuction, the device also combines radio frequency energy that tightens the skin while melting fat.

Recently the TV show “The Doctors” featured an episode showing a gynecomastia patient having a BodyTite treatment for male breast reduction.

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedures and has become the focus of intensive marketing. There are variations of liposuction such as; ultrasound, tumescent, and laser assisted. Each one has multiple catchy names causing confusion for patients hoping to find the best treatment.

Over 40% of Dr. Miguel Delgado, M.D.’s gynecomastia practice is for male breast reduction revision. The revision most common is for patients that had liposuction alone by another surgeon and who did not use surgical excision of the dense breast tissue.

The “Gold Standard” for gynecomastia surgery is surgical excision of the breast tissue with liposuction for fat removal and sculpting. No matter what claims are made with marketing gimmicks, there are not any effective short cuts! The most important decision a patient can make is the selection of a skilled surgeon and not the type of liposuction that is being used.

Dr. Delgado has been performing gynecomastia surgery since 1989 and has a different technique for skin tightening. Instead of radio frequency devices, he contracts the skin by applying controlled heat directly to the underlying skin, thereby avoiding surgical excision of loose skin for most cases.
