There are many reasons why it becomes harder to lose excess weight as we age; our metabolism slows down, we may become less active and our digestion changes. Certain body areas are resistant to diet and exercise and it's very frustrating, wondering if we’ll ever be able to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that just won't shift, even when following a healthy, active lifestyle.
Man boobs or gynecomastia is excessive fatty tissue that's stored over the pectoral muscles on the chest area of a man. These breast tissues are made up of fat deposits and swollen glands, and are extremely difficult to lose, even with exercise. Gynecomastia can arise through hormonal imbalance, side effects from certain medications - especially those with steroids as an ingredient, obesity and ageing. It's not uncommon for this condition to develop during puberty too.
At the Selston Cosmetic Clinic we successfully use Vaser Lipo to correct man boobs. The Vaser Lipo procedure uses advanced ultrasound technology to emulsify the fat, under local anaesthetic, whilst avoiding the veins, nerves, blood vessels and surrounding tissue, which leaves them relatively intact. The fat is then aspirated. Even though there's some minor swelling, the results are instantaneous, and there's further body contouring and skin tightening over the next 6 months.
At the clinic earlier this month, we had a lovely young man from the North who had a problem with gynecomastia which had affected him for a long time. He had tried to exercise them away but just couldn't rid himself of his protruding breasts. He never felt confident enough to wear certain clothes which would emphasise his problem and he wanted a Vaser Lipo procedure to completely flatten his chest.

This week - just two weeks later - he came to see Dr. Bassi for a follow-up appointment and the initial results were fab! His chest was really flat, and the improvements and skin retraction will continue for a few months. He followed our post op care to the letter and even bought himself an ultrasound massager to use at home!
|Stunning results just two weeks later!|
Selston Cosmetic Clinic was one of the first clinics in the UK offering the Vaser Lipo procedure and we are a main Vaser Lipo National Training Centre for cosmetic doctors. We are also a national and international clinic, having clients travelling to us from all over the UK, Europe, Middle East and China! To keep up to date with trends in the cosmetic industry, Dr Bassi has attended courses, training and seminars in various parts of the world, such as USA, South America, Europe as well as in the UK.
At the clinic Dr. Bassi has performed over 15OO procedures (and still counting) performing 4 to 5 procedures each week, giving a bespoke personal service to every client. Vaser Lipo is regarded as the gentlest and most powerful form of liposuction available today and over the past year we have used the Vaser Tickle Lipo system along with Vaser and by using both technologies we have been able to extract greater amounts of fat, faster and in more comfort.
The philosophy of our clinic is simple - to make sure that cutting edge treatments are identified, improved, and made available to clients at Selston Cosmetic Clinic at competitive prices.
