Non-Invasive Gynecomastia Reduction (Male Boobs)
Gynecomastia, also known as enlarged male breasts or man boobs, is swelling of the breast tissue in boys or men. This may be caused by hormones imbalance. While many people believe estrogen is a ‘female-only hormone, males produce it too.
The development of gynecomastia can take place when a man’s estrogen levels are higher than that of his testosterone levels. The increase in estrogen then results in the formation of excess fat or breast tissue in the chest.
Gynecomastia can also be caused by changes in the physique due to aging, especially former athletes. This condition can affect one or both breasts, and in some cases, the fat distribution could also be uneven. Although the condition is no cause for concern, it may be emotionally debilitating for many men.
Clinical Classification of Gynecomastia
This usually indicates a small breast enlargement with localized tissue around the surrounding nipple area (areola). Due to a slight swelling, the localized tissue will have a different colour from the breast tissue in the area.
Grade 2 gynecomastia has tissue growth that is broader than grade 1. It is defined as a mild to moderate enlargement of the breast that expands throughout the chest.
Grade 3 gynecomastia has excess skin around the areola and the breast tissue tends to appear droopy. The chest width has also expanded.
Grade 4 gynecomastia is the most severe sage where the breast tissue has expanded severely with a large amount of excess skin. The appearance of the chest also resembles the appearance of female breasts.
With the development of a new treatment, men are now able to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat without the need of going under the knife. CoolScupting or SculpSure, are non-surgical cosmetic procedures that use innovative technology to painlessly eliminate fat and improve skin laxity after the fat has been removed without the pain of surgery.
The procedure is comfortable, painless, and has almost no downtime, patients can sit back comfortably and even enjoy Netflix during their treatment process.

A non-invasive shockwave therapy that uses low-energy acoustic wave pulsations is applied onto the treated areas to break up the fat cells.
This process also helps to enhance circulation and stimulates lymphatic drainage, which increases the elimination of destroyed fat cells.
