If the patients smoke, they should consider quitting before and after the surgery, since smoking can delay the healing of the tissues. Blood thinners such as Aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs should be avoided on the week before the male breast reduction with Slim Lipo procedure.
How It Is Performed
Male breast reduction with Slim Lipo works on the same principle as other laser assisted liposuction methods. It can be performed in the doctor’s office under local anesthesia. In this technique, two different wavelengths (924 nm and 975 nm) are used in the same device to liquify the fat by gently heating the skin and to tighten the skin. Of these wavelengths, 924 targets fat cells and 975 targets water. The wavelength 924 is directed into the desired fat layer. The targeted fat cells in the treated area are liquefied by fine adjustments. The liquefied fat cells are sucked through a thin cannula and vacuum and collected in an empty tube.
After the male breast reduction with Slim Lipo procedure, most patients immediately feel ready to return to their normal routines within couple of days. Exercises should be limited for at least a week or two after surgery. Results are easily visible after treatment, however the final outcomes are typically seen a few months after surgery, once all swelling has reduced.
