  • (1888PressRelease) June 17, 2010 - Marshfield, MA -- Edwin Ishoo, MD, a cosmetic surgeon in Marshfield, Massachusetts area, is pleased to announce the availability of VASER Liposelection procedure to men looking to treat their gynecomastia. Combining extensive experience with advanced ultrasound techniques such as VASER Liposelection, Dr. Edwin Ishoo, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, is able to provide remarkable results with minimal recovery time at an affordable price in a safe, comfortable, outpatient setting.

    Male breast reduction is commonly performed to treat over-development of the male breasts, a condition known as gynecomastia. Gynecomastia literally means "woman breast." This increase in tissue usually occurs at times when the male is having hormonal changes, such as during infancy, adolescence, and aging. Often times men think that they have gynecomastia but in reality they have what is called pseudogynecomastia or "false gynocomatia". Pseudogynecomastia is common among males whose bodies store fat readily in the chest or pectoral region. "When gynecomastia is from fat, liposuction works very well for contouring the chest." Said Dr. Edwin Ishoo, director of the Boston Cosmetic Surgery Center.

    "Although a big muscular chest is always desired, large fatty breast on a male chest is not. This is a common source of embarrassment causing a low self-esteem for most men. They avoid taking their shirt off to go swimming and wearing of tight shirts makes it more noticeable. For many men treatment of this condition is well worth the cost " added Dr. Ishoo.

    Traditional liposuction was often inadequate due to the glandular and fibrous nature of the tissue. However, VASER Liposelection gently melts the tissue before is suctioned out leading to less tissue damage, less bruising, and an easier recovery. Most commonly, Dr. Ishoo treats gynecomastia with VASER Liposelection alone using minimally invasive nipple incisions, which are very inconspicuous and heal very rapidly. "By melting and suctioning excess fat from the chest, we can improve the shape and contour of your body for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance." Said Dr. Edwin Ishoo.

    Dr. Ishoo is able to use VASER Liposelection to remove the fat and naturally shape the chest to create not just a flat area but also a well-defined and natural look. Sometimes there is a small bud of glandular tissue that cannot be removed with suction alone. In this instance, a small incision is made around the nipple to remove the tissue at the same time as the VASER Liposelection procedure. "VASER Liposelection has revolutionized the treatment of certain gynecomastia cases and we are achieving much better results compared to traditional techniques," added Edwin Ishoo, M.D.
