SmartLipo™ for Gynecomastia


SmartLipo in Charleston, SCGynecomastia is the excess fat some men carry across the chest area, also known as male breasts or “man boobs.” SmartLipo™ for gynecomastia by Dr. Brian Widenhouse at Port City Plastic Surgery in Charleston, SC can help eliminate unwanted fat in this area, helping you regain your confidence and enhance your masculine build.

SmartLipo™ for gynecomastia at Port City Plastic Surgery in Charleston, SC is long-lasting, safe and has a fast recovery. It is an outpatient procedure that takes less than two hours. Most of our patients return to work within a few days. SmartLipo™ is a relatively new but proven and trusted innovation on the liposuction procedure, giving our gynecomastia patients an option with less discomfort and a shorter healing time. SmartLipo™ adds laser energy to traditional liposuction, making the fat removal process easier. The heat of the laser also stimulates the skin to produce additional collagen. This can cause the skin to tighten and tone. SmartLipo™ male breast reduction is generally recommended for patients with full or fatty chests, but without hard glandular tissue. During your evaluation, Dr. Widenhouse will help you decide which gynecomastia procedures are right for you.

Gynecomastia using traditional liposuction or excision surgery for male breast reduction leaves only one or two small puncture sites on each side of the chest as well as a seam at the nipple edge, which are invisible to patients with hair on their chests. Scarring after SmartLipo does not typically occur. Patients undergoing any type of gynecomastia surgery should avoid heavy lifting and exercise. We will give you more specific information about post-operative care for these different types of procedures during your consultation with Dr. Widenhouse.

For our Charleston, SC patients, SmartLipo™ results for gynecomastia (“man boobs”) are consistently smooth and natural-looking. The laser energy we use at Port City Plastic Surgery stimulates additional collagen production, which can tighten and tone the skin. SmartLipo™ for gynecomastia at Port City Plastic Surgery in Charleston SC is specifically designed to promote skin-tightening effects as the fat is removed. Men under the age of 60 with good skin tone will not notice any sagging skin, and this procedure will not change the size, color, or placement of your nipples. Because SmartLipo™ works at the cellular level, it results in a smooth, natural transitional look between the areas that are treated and surrounding areas.

SmartLipo™ at Port City Plastic Surgery can help you to achieve a trim, natural-looking chest – which is what every man deserves!
