Gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction surgery, is a medical procedure designed to reduce the size of enlarged breasts in men. Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by the overdevelopment of breast tissue in males, leading to a more feminine chest appearance. This condition can be caused by hormonal imbalances, certain medications, or underlying medical issues.
Here are some key points about gynecomastia surgery:
Candidates for Surgery:
Men who have persistent gynecomastia that does not resolve with lifestyle changes or medical treatment.
Individuals with good overall health and realistic expectations about the outcomes of the surgery.
Procedure Types:
Liposuction: This is often used when excess fat is the primary cause of gynecomastia. It involves the removal of fat deposits through small incisions using a thin tube (cannula).
Excision: If glandular tissue or excess skin needs to be removed, excision may be performed. This involves making larger incisions to eliminate the tissue or skin.
Surgical Process:
Gynecomastia surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia.
The surgeon may use a combination of liposuction and excision techniques to achieve the desired results.
The duration of the surgery varies depending on the complexity of the case.
After the surgery, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort.
A compression garment may be recommended to minimize swelling and support the healing process.
Most patients can return to work and normal activities within a week, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for a few weeks.
The results of gynecomastia surgery are usually permanent, but maintaining a healthy lifestyle is crucial to prevent the recurrence of excess fat deposits.
Scars from the surgery are typically discreet and fade over time.
Risks and Considerations:
As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks, including infection, bleeding, and adverse reactions to anesthesia.
It’s important to choose a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to minimize risks and achieve optimal results.
The cost of gynecomastia surgery varies depending on factors such as the surgeon’s experience, location, and the complexity of the procedure.
Before considering gynecomastia surgery, it’s essential to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon who can assess your specific situation, discuss the available options, and provide personalized recommendations based on your needs and goals.
