Chest reshaping isn’t just for ladies. Many men opt for the procedure to reduce the appearance of bothersome fat in the chest. Breast reduction, or gynecomastia, can produce significant results for men with chest laxity caused by genetics, changes in weight, or aging. At Image Surgical Arts of Nashville, Tennessee, we use VASER ultrasonic liposuction technology to sculpt the chest for a better overall contour.

How Does It Work?
VASER is an ultrasound-assisted laser technology that disrupts fat better than standard liposuction techniques. It also provides a level of skin tightening not seen with standard liposuction. The use of VASER has allowed Dr. Harris to avoid unsightly scaring associated with traditional gynecomastia surgery. The procedure is done in our state-of-the-art surgical center in Nashville, Tn. Dr. Harris will meticulously work to remove stubborn fat and excess glandular tissue to help you achieve your desired results with the least amount of downtime possible. During your initial consultation, Dr. Harris will perform an evaluation, talk to you about your goals, and discuss all of your options in-depth.
When Can I Expect to See Results?*
Gynecomastia surgery can provide instantly outstanding results. The outcome of your procedure will be dependent on several factors including your body’s natural healing process and the complexity of the procedure. However, you can expect to see more noticeable results in as little as two-months as swelling dissipates. Clothing will fit better, and you’ll be able to regain the confidence you need to enjoy life to the fullest. Final results may take up to 4-6 months.
Does It Hurt?*
Gynecomastia is done under IV sedation and a local anesthetic, or more commonly, under general anesthesia to keep you as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure. You may experience some swelling, bruising, or minor pain as you heal. Any discomfort can be managed with OTC or prescription medication during this time.
Am I a Good Candidate?
You may want to consider a gynecomastia if excess breast tissue is bothersome for you and you would like to boost your self-confidence. Males who are in otherwise good health who are non-smokers typically have the best outcome from their gynecomastia procedure.
