Just for Men overview
Gynecomastia is a medical term that comes from the Greek words for “woman-like breasts.” Though rarely talked about, gynecomastia is actually quite common. Gynecomastia affects an estimated 20 percent of men, although probably more are have a mild form of the condition.
Gynecomastia may affect only one breast or both, results in a rounded or pointed shape to the male chest, which causes it to look more like a female breast. The cause of gynecomastia is unknown in the majority of case, however certain drugs and medical problems have been linked with male breast overdevelopment. Cannabis containing compounds such as Marinol or marijuana can cause gynecomastia, as well as anabolic steroids. Obesity can also accentuate the appearance of the male breast.

The most common procedure is ultrasonic liposuction, which removes fat and the firmer glandular tissue from the breasts through small and hidden incisions.

Abdominal Etching for Men
Abdominal etching can use standard and ultrasonic techniques to give the appearance of a more sculpted abdomen. This can often be achieved by creating a six pack (also called tendinous inscriptions) or a midline indention. Fat removal from the abdomen or flanks can also be done at the same time to accentuate the result.
The surgery is done as an outpatient under either local or general anesthesia. Most incisions can easily be hidden in the natural body creases of the body, leaving very small scars. As with all liposuction procedures, the procedure does not substitute for weight loss and individuals near to their ideal weight will have the best liposuction results.
