Gynecomastia is essentially the result of two problems: (1) excessive male breast glands, and (2) fatty tissue that cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise. Whatever the cause of your gynecomastia the permanent treatment is a surgical process of male breast reduction through a combination of fat removal (liposuction), gland tissue reduction, and skin tightening.
Our doctor’s goal in the surgical treatment of gynecomastia is to make the chest proportional to the rest of the torso, creating a flatter and firmer chest area with improved contours and minimal or virtually imperceptible surgical incisions.
Gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts) can occur due to disorders of the endocrine system, the side effects of certain drugs, or can be congenital (formed at birth). Other reasons for enlarged male breasts include birth defects, obesity, excess alcohol intake, certain drugs like anabolic steroids, or sagging skin due to weight loss. The most common cause of gynecomastia is lingering breast tissue that was over-developed during puberty. For answers to the most frequently asked questions about gynecomastia surgery please follow this link: common gynecomastia surgery questions our NYC Gynecomastia Center doctors are asked.
There are varying gynecomastia surgical techniques offered by the plastic surgeon’s of the NYC Gynecomastia Center but the actual type of surgical technique that will be employed for your unique case by the plastic surgeon will be dependent on your specific case and also dependent on the amount of excess breast tissue you desire to have removed. You will have a significant opportunity to discuss your ideal body contouring shape during your complimentary consultation or second opinion.
In most cases, patients can resume daily activities a few days after gynecomastia surgery and can return to office work within one week. Jobs that require heavy lifting may require extended time off.
The basic steps involved with gynecomastia surgery are as follows:
- Gynecomastia surgery can be performed under general or local anesthesia – though typically under general anesthesia
- The patient is anesthetized
- A small incision is made below the areola region of the breast
- Excessive breast tissue is surgically removed
- Excessive fat is removed by liposuction
- The incision is sutured
- Scars will become imperceptible
Normally gynecomastia surgery at the NYC Gynecomastia Center takes less than 90 minutes. After male breast reduction surgery, patients may be advised by the plastic surgeon to wear an elastic pressure garment or ace bandage that promotes healing. This will be dependent on your unique case and your doctor will let you know what to expect prior to surgery.
