    You are not alone- The Rock’s story

    There have been several recent articles on the Internet about Dwayne Johnson a.k.a. “The Rock” having had male breast liposuction.

    How is men’s breast liposuction done?

    Male Breast Reduction is done by liposuction and most of the time can be performed with no scars and just a single small entry site for the liposuction cannula. Once the cannula is inserted into the site, the fat is literally “vacuumed” out.  The entry site is so small it simply closes itself. The patient can choose to have the procedure performed using only local anesthesia, minimal sedation, or with a deeper anesthesia. The procedure itself typically requires an hour to an hour and a half.

    Why use tumescent anesthesia for body Liposuction?

    Tumescent anesthesia is a technique in which a diluted anesthetic solution is placed in the fat layer. This provides excellent numbing and increases the safety and comfort during and after the procedure.

    Why does Dr Perry prefer micro cannulas?

    Liposuction cannulas are hollow, stainless steel tubes which are connected to a powerful suction device which literally “vaccuums” the fat out.  Micro Cannula Liposuction employs an extremely tiny stainless steel tube which allows more precise sculpting of treated areas than standard liposuction cannulas.  Micro Cannula Liposuction requires only a tiny opening no more than 3 mm to perform the procedure. These tiny openings are far less conspicuous than the openings for standard liposuction cannulas and usually “disappear” with time.
