What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is the condition of abnormally enlarged breasts in men. It is caused by excess fatty tissue or hormonal imbalances, and can affect one or both breasts, sometimes unevenly. It is a common condition that affects anywhere from 40-60 percent of men.
How Does Male Breast Reduction Work?
If your male breast reduction is the result of excess fatty tissue, liposuction can be used to remove the excess fat to sculpt and contour your chest for a more attractive and desirable appearance. During this procedure, a tiny incision is made on each side of the chest where the tissue is removed. Sometimes the excision of excess skin may be used in conjunction with liposuction. Through this method, incisions are made either around the nipple or in the crease of the breast. This allows access to remove excess fat and skin. Surgical excision may be performed alone, or it may also be performed along with liposuction. Together, you and your surgeon will discuss your options and what is right for you to give you the best possible results.
Am I a Candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery?
Surgical methods to correct gynecomastia are performed under anesthesia as an outpatient procedure and can typically be completed in 1-2 hours, depending on your body and the severity of the problem. During your consultation, your doctor will assess medical history and anatomy to help determine the root of your gynecomastia. Once the cause has been determined, your doctor will decide if this procedure is right for you. You will also have the chance to discuss the male breast reduction recovery time and male breast reduction cost.
How Long is Recovery from Gynecomastia Surgery?
The recovery time for each of these procedures will vary from patient to patient. During your consultation, your surgeon will be able to give you an idea of what you can expect from your procedure and develop a post-treatment plan to make your recovery period a smooth one.
