What is Gynaecomastia Surgery?

Gynaecomastia or male breasts reduction surgery is a procedure to sculpt male chest. Gynaecomastia is a condition in which there is development of female like breast in males because of hormonal changes. Male develops both gland and fat around chest which has to be removed by excision of gland and liposuction.

Dr. Chugh’s unique approach involves two small incisions on lateral side of chest avoiding any scars in front of the chest. Use of new technologies like VASER allows to avoid that scar in front of chest and also better redraping of skin once gland and fat are removed.

It generally takes 1-2 hours and you can return home by evening.

We use state of the art technologies like VASER Liposuction. VASER is a technology which uses ultrasonic waves to liquefy the fat, therefore enabling its easy removal. It helps in faster recovery as there is less bruising, less swelling and less pain after the surgery. Also due to its heating effect it remodels collagen which helps in better skin retraction.

The method we use ensures that there are no tell- tale signs of surgery as incisions are not placed in front of chest and are less than 0.5 mm.
