Gynecomastia or Male breast or Man boobs
This problem can be socially embarrassing for men as well as professionally uncomfortable. Dr. Rajat Gupta understands that people suffering from this may be depressed, due to social embarrassment may not be actively involved in outdoor sports activities like swimming etc, may not be able to wear tight fit clothes and may be feeling dejected about it. However, you are not the only one suffering from it as the percentage of people suffering from it is nearly up to 30-40% in different populations. So, one may call it just a small abnormal variation during development of breast in childhood through adolescence. However there may be other causes leading to its development also like, intake of some medicines, drugs and some other systemic diseases as well. It would be prudent to get an appointment fixed with Dr. Gupta to rule out other causes and get rid of this socially embarrassing problem as quick as possible that too without leaving any tell tale signs of the procedure!

What will be the scars like?
It depends on the magnitude of your problem. On most of the patients, scars are usually less than 5mm on hidden areas. For a very severe problem scar may be bigger around the areola (dark skin around the nipple) so that it is also hidden and camouflaged. Following surgery, you will have nice contour without obvious scars so that you can have the confidence to go out in public removing your shirt and participate in outdoor activities like swimming etc
Suction-assisted liposuction (SAL), the most traditional form of liposuction, draws fat out with a vacuum. This procedure involves the removal of unwanted fatty deposits from specific body parts.
Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) is traditional SAL, but with the use of an addition to increase the motion of the cannula that speeds up fat removal.

Vaser Liposuction Technique: VASER is an ultrasonic canula that disperses energy improving fat disruption and removal. It is a still process in which fat deposits are removed from beneath the skins and the appearance of the body part becomes better. Tumescent liquid, or a saline solution mixed with anesthetics, is injected into the body area being treated. Ultrasonic probes, inserted into the fatty tissue gently break the fat cells down. The vibration gently disengages and loosens the fat cells and ultimately emulsifies the tumescent fluid that has been infused into the body area. While the emulsification is in process, a small cannula is used to remove the liquid and the fat cells. This process doesn’t let much of skin to go loose as it offers the surgeon a great deal of control and you get the smooth, contoured look. Vaser liposuction is specifically designed to loosen fat but to protect and preserve other tissues and by using the saline solution, hence there is typically less bleeding and bruising. Along with fat removal, Vaser helps in skin tightening simultaneously.
