Gynecomastia is the medical term for an excess of male breast tissue. The tissue may be glandular, fat, or a combination. Non-surgical methods can be employed to remove excess fat from the male breasts to create a more masculine look to the upper body, with the added benefit of increasing self-confidence.
Is a VelaShape treatment painful?
Most patients describe VelaShape as comfortable and pain free. 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.
