    Minimally invasive, comfortable, discreet

    Dr. Markelov specializes in a minimally invasive approach to gynecomastia surgery and often performs it under local anesthesia when appropriate. This method is always comfortable for the patient, who is able to talk and move throughout the procedure. After making small pokes, Dr. Markelov removes excess fatty tissue and sculpts the area into a more masculine shape. Often others are not able to tell that there was any surgery performed at all. Some benefits of gynecomastia surgery in Tampa include:   

    • Results look completely natural
    • Can be performed under local anesthesia
    • Quick recovery — Minimal to no downtime


    Recovery from this procedure is very manageable, and there is little to no downtime. After the operation there may be some slight tenderness, bruising, or swelling, but these side effects are resolved within a few days. It may take a week or two until the patient can resume normal activity, but they should refrain from strenuous upper body exercise for 4-6 weeks.

    Your results A sculpted body

    Liposuction is the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the country, and it can help you achieve a slimmer appearance by removing pockets of stubborn fat that won’t go away with just diet and exercise.

    If you want a chiseled, defined body, high definition liposuction could be the right option for you. Ideal areas for high-definition liposuction include:

    High-definition liposuction is more of a contouring procedure rather than simply a fat removal option. The process involves high-frequency sound waves that liquify fat before it is removed. As a result, Dr. Markelov can use extreme precision to sculpt the area in a way that accentuates the existing musculature.
