Chest Liposuction

Consultations offered at our two convenient locations in San Diego and Carlsbad

Chest liposuction

Excess fat in the chest can distort the profile and shape of the breasts in women while in men, excess fat deposits in the chest can give the impression of breasts.

Many individuals implement liposuction when receiving a breast lift or reduction to maximize their results. Whereas lipo is often used to contour and enhance the male chest. Whatever your concern regarding your chest, Dr. Seare performs liposuction meticulously to achieve impressive results.

What is Liposuction?

Lipo surgery is a body contouring technique that removes lipodystrophy fat. This fat is often resistant to exercise and can be very frustrating. Liposuction helps our patients achieve their body goals. This surgery has been tested and improved over decades. Today, advanced techniques are used alongside the primary lipo technique to improve the safety and efficacy of treatment.

Common liposuction treatment areas include the hips, thighs, arms, abdomen, and chest.

Liposuction with Dr. Seare will make an impacting difference in the contours of your body. Patients are often impressed by how a chest treatment will make such a big difference in their appearance. For your best results, schedule a consultation with Dr. Seare so you can get started towards looking and feeling amazing.

Chest Liposuction

Chest liposuction is a common treatment for both men and women.

Chest Liposuction for Women

Breast reductions and liposuction often go hand-in-hand. Implementing lipo helps reduce unnecessary tissue and help results look excellent, especially lateral to the breasts themselves. Liposuction can speed up the surgery and allow Dr. Seare to have more control over shaping your breasts, enhancing the final results.

Chest Liposuction for Men

The development of breasts is often a source of self-consciousness for many men. Breast tissue may develop from many causes, including increased weight, or from a hormone imbalance resulting in gynecomastia. Gynecomastia occurs when men have more estrogen than testosterone, causing the breast tissues to swell. Occasionally fluid may discharge from the nipple. This condition is often uncomfortable and can cause the individual to avoid situations that would draw attention to their chest.

Losing weight is a good place to start for men who want to lose “man boobs” but it is often not enough to reduce this very resistant tissue gain resulting in loss of chest definition.

Male breast reduction most times can be corrected with Dr. Seare’s Power-X Micro-Lipo.  In 10 to 20% of the time, liposculpture procedures, even aggressive lipo including his Power-X power-assisted lipo (PAL) with Dr. Seare’s proprietary spatula-tip cannula, is not enough to entirely correct the problem. It may be necessary to remove very dense breast tissue with actual open surgery through a very small incision beneath the nipple, and open excision of the gland, in addition to the Micro-Lipo, may be required.  It is Dr. Seare’s goal to use the best tools and procedures to maximize his ability to restore the male physique to its aesthetic beauty.

Dr. Seare has extensive experience with Gynecomastia, both in his Plastic Surgical Residency and over many decades of practice.

His experience and care using “Awake Anesthesia” to enhance the natural contours of the male or female’s breast and chest contours will be applied with care,  experience, and safety

Liposuction Techniques

To make sure the outcome is as desired, Dr. Seare provides his patients with multiple liposuction techniques. Dr. Seare is an expert liposuction surgeon and specializes in many methods of lipo surgery. These techniques include:

Hi-Def Lipo

This minimally-invasive technique uses ultrasound technology to target unwanted, difficult fat. Hi-Def lipo is often used to help men achieve a six-pack. This method of lipo allows for Dr. Seare to use a high level of control when removing fat and can easily show off the underlying muscles of the abdomen or chest.

Micro Lipo

This form of liposuction allows Dr. Seare to gently remove stubborn fat. Using his own patented cannulas, Dr. Seare can smooth curves and remove localized fat deposits. Micro Lipo is an excellent treatment for patients who want small amounts of fat removed and defined results. 

Vaser Lipo

Another minimally-invasive lipo technique, Vaser uses ultrasound technology to reduce larger amounts of fat. This technique minimizes trauma to healthy tissues and can be used on areas all over the body. 

SmartLipo

SmartLipo is a laser-assisted liposculpture treatment that is perfect for removing difficult fat. In the procedure, a laser fiber will be used to emulsify fat cells. The liquid cells will be easier to extract, helping your treatment to be performed efficiently.

Dr. Seare will discuss these methods in more detail during your consultation. Together you will determine which technique is best for the results you want.

Procedure

chest liposuction surgery

A liposuction procedure is completed under awake anesthesia and light sedation. Dr. Seare and you will have discussed anesthesia during your private consultation. Incisions will be placed discreetly within the curves of your breasts.

The predetermined liposuction methods will be used to remove excess tissue and fat from your chest. Dr. Seare will sculpt your chest and help to add definition or improve curves. Once the desired goal is achieved, incisions will be closed and bandaged.

You will be taken to a recovery room where you will be monitored until you wake up.

Recovery

Many patients can return home after chest liposuction. However, if you were undergoing a more invasive surgery such as breast augmentation or lift, you may need to stay the night and be monitored for a longer period. 

Patients will need to be driven home after surgery. It will be important to take it slow and get plenty of rest during your recovery. Staying hydrated and taking brief walks when you feel able to are other important aspects of your healing process.

Patients are often able to return to work within a week or, for more invasive surgeries like a breast lift, after about two weeks.

A follow-up appointment about a week or two after surgery will allow Dr. Seare to remove stitches, examine incisions and ensure you are healing well. This is a great time to ask him new questions and learn when you can return to exercise and more strenuous activities.

Results

You will notice improved contours in your chest right away. Compression garments will help your results come in quickly and for your body to adjust to the new shape and position of the chest. Your final results will set in after a month or two once swelling and bruising has completely dissipated. The results Dr. Seare achieves will be long-lasting and can be maintained with a healthy lifestyle.

The cost of your treatment will be unique to your features and desired aesthetic. We personalize each patient’s procedure and due to our detailed care, each patient will have their own particular treatment cost.
