Do you suffer from gynecomastia? We can help.

Men of any age can experience enlarged breasts or gynecomastia. For many, the issue is more than just aesthetic. Both young boys and adult men can suffer from anxiety, low self-esteem and even avoid engaging in certain activities that can cause embarrassment. Avalon Laser understands that emotional wellbeing is critical and offers male breast reduction in San Diego, Carlsbad, and surrounding areas.

What is gynecomastia?

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.

How do I know VelaShape is right for me?

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.

Gynecomastia FAQ's

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.

What other benefits can I experience with VelaShape?

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.

Will I need to take off time from work?

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 painkillers or anything the like. In fact, the moment you leave the office you will most likely not experience any discomfort.

Are there any side effects with VelaShape?

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.
