Gynecomastia is the medical name for a common condition where the male breast tissue is enlarged. Typically, this is caused by a hormonal imbalance and can affect a man at any age. Although “man boobs” aren’t a health concern, they can have a detrimental effect on your sense of confidence in both personal and professional relationships. Weight loss is generally not effective at producing a dramatic change in your appearance. Although diet and exercise can make some improvement, achieving permanent, natural looking results requires a skilled cosmetic surgeon.
At the Innovative Cosmetic Surgery Center in Scottsdale, AZ, Dr. Todd Malan offers confidential, patient focused care for male patients seeking to achieve a more athletic profile through advanced body sculpting treatments. Dr. Malan offers several types of liposuction which can be used alone or in combination to effectively reduce male breasts and sculpt the chest into a more defined, masculine physique.
Water assisted liposuction (WAL) is the ideal treatment for men seeking to address gynecomastia or male breasts due to the more gentle nature of the treatment. Using WAL, Dr. Malan can remove the excess glandular tissue and fat deposits in the chest area without damaging muscle tissue or connective tissue for a result that looks natural and allows for normal function and athleticism.

Water Assisted Lipo: What To Expect
WAL offers several advantages for the treatment of gynecomastia. Less traumatic to fibrous muscle tissue, water assisted lipo is highly effective in eliminating excess fat in the chest area with less residual swelling and downtime. Treatment can be completed in the comfort of our Scottsdale medical office using a local anesthetic.
The process involves the gentle insertion of a tiny cannula beneath the skin which is used to facilitate the stream of water that will gently dislodge fat cells and glandular tissue for easy removal. WAL enables Dr. Malan to sculpt the chest area without damaging the natural shape provided by pectoral muscles and supporting connective tissue. Patients experience a recovery that includes a toned and smooth appearance.
Why Choose Us
Dr. Todd Malan is a nationally recognized pioneer in the development and implementation of advanced body sculpting. Experience and expertise in body sculpting and an in depth understanding of the unique needs and goals of male patients enables Dr. Malan to offer patients the results they desire.
Water assisted liposuction is an effective treatment option for men because it is accurate, gentle and effective at targeting the excess glandular tissue in the breast area without trauma to the skin and muscles. Traditional liposuction is not only ineffective at removing the tougher glandular tissue, but frequently damaged the connective fibrous tissue beneath the skin, resulting in decreased tone and a “saggy” appearance.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Malan will thoroughly examine the breast area and discuss both your medical history and cosmetic goals to determine that liposuction is right for you. He will thoroughly explain all aspects of your treatment including what to expect and associated costs.
