Gynecomastia is excess male breast tissue, also known as "man boobs." Gynecomastia can be a very embarrassing condition. It is often caused by genetics, hormonal imbalance and/or certain medications. Often the excess breast tissue remains even after weight loss and varies in severity level from one patient to another.
The most common treatment for gynecomastia is liposuction surgery and surgical removal of male breast tissue. However, at Avalon Laser, we now offer a non-invasive treatment for this condition. Please read the paragraphs below to learn more about our non-surgical male breast reduction treatment in San Diego and Carlsbad, or call 800-896-1138 if you have questions about your individual case.

Dr. Reza Tirgari of Avalon Laser now offers non-invasive male breast reduction treatment with VelaShape technology.

Why Consider Male Breast Reduction at Avalon Laser?
Our non-invasive procedure is enough reason to consider this treatment. Our patients get wonderful results without the need for incisions, scars, needles or anesthesia. The VelaShape technology delivers wonderful outcomes in as little as four to six treatment sessions, each lasting less than 45 minutes. It is extremely comfortable. During the treatment, patients feel as if they are receiving a warm massage. This is because VelaShape uses a hand-held massaging and vacuuming device that is applied over the body. It breaks down fat cells and tightens the skin all while delivering comfort to the patient.
Using VelaShape, we also help cellulite reduction patients as well as circumferential fat reduction patients. Dr. Tirgari is a leading liposuction surgery provider who has years of experience using leading-edge lasers and technologies to deliver incredible body contouring results.
Recovery and Aftercare
The beauty of male breast reduction with VelaShape is that it requires no downtime. Our patients can return to their daily routine right away. You do not need to take time off work, consume pain killers or anything alike. In fact, the moment you leave the office you will most likely not experience any discomfort.
In some cases, minor swelling may occur, but it subsides quickly. You will be provided with detailed instructions on how to care for the treatment area before and after each treatment session. Results can be seen even after the first session and continue to improve over time.
During your consultation, Dr. Tirgari will examine your breast tissue to determine the amount of excess. He will then draft a tailored treatment plan just for you.
Dr. Tirgari will also ask you about your medical history as well as your current health and lifestyle. This helps ensure that you qualify for the VelaShape treatment and can proceed safely. At your complimentary male breast reduction consultation, you will learn how VelaShape works, what to expect before, during and after each treatment and how to maintain your results. This is also a great time to ask any questions you may have.
