As a guide:
Commonly referred to as “man boobs” but, more specifically known by the medical name Gynecomastia, this condition is caused by an imbalance between the sex hormones resulting in excess breast tissue and breast fat in men.
While males and females naturally have varying levels of both male and female sex hormones (male: testosterone, female: estrogen), males with higher levels of estrogen are more likely to develop man boobs. Genetics can also play a role in the development of Gynaecomastia.
This hormonal imbalance is what causes the over-development of glandular tissue and consequently the deposition of excess fat in the breast area. In addition, breast tissue in men tends to be more fibrous, meaning fat in this area is harder to remove.
At Cosmos Clinic, man boobs are treated using Vaser Liposuction to remove both glandular and fat tissue.
Patients are given a light sedation and a tiny 1/2 cm incision is made into the area being treated. Local anaesthesia is used to numb the area around the chest. Once numb, ultrasound energy is transmitted through an ultrasound probe to separate the fat cells from the fibrous tissue.
Traditional Liposuction for this area was difficult and much like trying to break a “brick of fat” into small pieces. Vaser Liposuction, the latest in Liposuction technology, has made this process more efficient as high energy from the ultrasound separates the fat cells from the fibrous tissue, converting it from the consistency of a “brick” to that of “melted butter”, making it easy to remove.
During the procedure, the gland is also surgically removed along with the excess fat.
The procedure is performed under conscious sedation and local anaesthetic which makes the procedure comfortable.
Downtime is minimal, and patients return home on the same day as their procedure. Recovery is quick and most patients are back at work within 2 – 3 days. The tiny incisions used result in minimal scarring with this procedure
A compression garment is worn after the treatment to help reduce bruising/swelling and improve skin retraction. This is worn for 3 – 6 weeks post surgery.
You will come into our Clinic for post-op lymphatic massages undertaken by our onsite physiotherapist or nurse. This is usually 2 – 4 treatments over two weeks.

Most of the results are obtained at 6 weeks. At this point photo’s will be taken to assess your progress. The final results may not be apparent for 3 – 6 months post-operatively.
Strict adherence to the pre-operative and post-operative requirements is necessary in order to achieve the best possible results
Your chest will look flatter and the feminine appearance will reduce / disappear, improving your confidence.
Risks are minimised when performed by experienced Doctor. General and specific risks related to the surgery will be discussed with you at your consultation.
During the procedure, we remove 90 -100% of the gland depending on the quality of your skin. The gland that is removed will not come back, the fat that is removed will not come back, and it will be harder to put on any fat in this area.
