Every human being has some form of breast tissue, and for most men this never grows or becomes an issue. For some men, however, changes in hormones can lead to them developing stubborn fat on the chest. Often called ‘man boobs’, or the medical term gynaecomastia, it is a common condition that leads to the chest becoming larger and fattier than usual.

Various different things can cause stubborn fat on the chest. Gynecomastia typically refers to swollen breast tissue which often has no underlying cause, sometimes Gynaecomastia is caused by an underlying medical condition. Most people who have stubborn fat on the chest will find it to be caused by excess fatty tissue due to being overweight.

When there is excess fat around the chest, it can cover the pectoral muscles that sit below, making them impossible to see. Losing fat around the chest can be difficult as the pockets of fat around this area of the body can be stubborn and hard to shift.

Man boobs affect loads of men of all ages and are a totally natural result of being overweight or hormone changes. For some men, having stubborn fat on the chest can make them self-conscious and drop their confidence.

VASER Liposuction

VASER Lipo can be used to reduce the size of man boobs and remove stubborn fat on the chest successfully. It works by emulsifying the fatty tissue using ultrasound energy that breaks up the fat cells. Once the fat has been liquified it is removed through an aspiration process that has been carefully designed to minimise the damage to the surrounding tissue. VASER lipo is not a replacement for a healthy diet and exercise, but it can help to reduce areas of very stubborn fat.

In addition to VASER Liposuction, Renuvion can also be used to tighten and tone the chest area. After excess fatty tissue has been removed using VASER lipo it can leave loose, sagging skin. Renuvion applies a radiofrequency energy to the area which contracts the subdermal collagen tissue and boosts new collagen production. The results are instantly firmer and tighter skin.
