What is Gynecomastia
Who is gynecomastia for?
The only really effective treatment is surgery.
In minor cases of gynecomastia, I can perform, smartlipo in my office under local anesthetic or with oral sedation. They can return to work the next day. They can resume exercising 5 days later.
However, with more significantly enlarged breasts, I feel a much better result is obtained with surgical excision in the operating room. I carry this out under general anesthesia. In most cases, I can do this surgery, through a small incision in the lower part of the areola. A drain will be placed on each side. You can shower the day following surgery. The drain is easily removed in the office a few days later. You should expect to take 4-7 days off from work.
In very severe cases, I will need to resect skin and this will be discussed with you at the time of your consult.
After any surgical treatment, a chest garment will need to be worn.
Almost all insurance companies consider this to be a cosmetic procedure and will not provide any financial assistance.
What Post-Op care is required for Gynecomastia?
A Male Breast Reduction should result in a flatter chest with a more masculine contour. In most cases, you’ll be required to wear a compression vest or chest wrapping for 10-14 days after the surgery to help reduce any swelling. You may shower the next day.
