Gynecomastia or large breasts
Seven percent of males have breast that a lot of women would envy! The cause is not always known, but the incidence increases with certain drugs (digitalis, athletics using steroids to build muscles), use of marijuana or alcohol, and obesity. This condition can cause extreme embarrassment, social inhibition and self-consciousness for boys and men who suffer from it
Liposuction can be done through a half centimeter single incision for each breast under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. The patient goes home in the same day and must wear a special garment for three weeks. They can resume regular office work in two days but must avoid heavy lifting and exercise for six weeks. A slightly sagging breast may improve with liposuction but severe sagging after weight loss is best left alone as surgical lifting frequently produces unacceptable scars in this keloid prone area.
Love handles refer to the annoying accumulation of fat at or just below the waist which can be notoriously resistant to diet and exercise. It is often an inherited tendency and while exercise will build the muscles underneath, it just won't get rid of the love handles.
In men, the stubborn holdouts of fat are usually in the abdomen area affectionately called ("love handles"), while in women, it's usually the thighs ("saddlebags").
If you are going to try and get rid of them by exercise, the only way to really burn fat, is to add some cardiovascular, or aerobic to your exercise routine. Stepping up your diet and fitness efforts may help you lose weight and become leaner and at the same time, smooth out your handles.
But if you have tried all the diets on the market and your “significant other” is still politely calling you cute and cuddly; and working out at the gym, just leaves you sweaty and blue in the face, don’t give up. More and more men are choosing to have cosmetic surgery these days; the only difference is that in their hunt for the fountain of youth, they do it in silence.”
Love handles are easily treated with liposuction, and the results are gratifying and very long lasting. As long as you do not gain significant weight after liposuction, the results are permanent.
