Chest Liposuction


The technique of Liposuction:

We use the so named tumescent-liposuction. The technique involves the injection of large volumes of salt solution with lidocaine (local anesthetic) and epinephrine (drug that shrinks capillaries) into the subcutaneous fat. Very thin needles are used to reduce pain which may be present during the infusion. After 30-60 minutes of acting, the fluid provides such complete local anesthesia, which eliminates the need for general anesthesia, or IV sedation.

Surgery for Gynecomastia:

The whole plastic surgery procedure will last about 2-3 hours. After the infusion of the fluid and after achieving complete numbness of the areas, a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted from the plastic surgeon through small incisions to loosen excess fat, using a controlled back and forth motion. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum or a syringe attached to the cannula. As this fat is removed, the layer of fat left behind is sculpted into aesthetically pleasing curves.

Note that during the liposuction you will be awake and there is no pain. At the end of the plastic surgery, you will be asked to stand up, so to check together with your plastic surgeon the results. If needed further refinements can be done, in order to achieve a symmetrical result.

Once the procedure is completed, a special gynecomastia compression garment will cover the chest and you will be transferred back to your room. Usually after 1-2 hours you'll be able to return home. As the small incision remains open, any excess blood or fluid will drain out. This will last from 24 to 48 hours.

The recovery:

The first few days you will have some pain but this can be controlled easily with pain killers. There is no restriction of movements, but in contrary you will be recommended to take frequent walks. There will be some bruising for a few days. Recovery is very fast and in simple cases you will be able to return to your daily activities within few days.

The results:

A difference in your breast contour can be seen soon after the liposuction. However, improvement will become more apparent after about 4-6 weeks, when the swelling will dissolve. After about 3-6 months the swelling will completely be dissolved and you will be able to see the final result. The scars are very small and they can be hardly seen.

Price for gynecomastia treatment with liposuction in Cyprus is 2100 euros.
