Many men find themselves with a great amount of excess breast tissue around their chest or experience “puffier” nipples. This condition can be genetic or caused by an imbalance of estrogen and testosterone following puberty. As gynecomastia cannot be corrected with exercise, most men with this condition are left searching for other solutions. Fortunately, most men with this condition are candidates for gynecomastia surgery, a surgical removal of the breast tissue, in addition to liposuction, to restore a more masculine shape to the chest.
Goals of Gynecomastia Surgery:
- Reduce excess breast tissue.
- Reduce swollen appearance of the nipples.
- Achieve a more masculine chest shape.
Is this procedure for you?
Men anywhere from late teens to their 80’s can be candidates for this type of surgical procedure.
At the time of your consultation, you will meet with your chosen board certified plastic surgeon who will talk with you about your goals and the best way to achieve your desired outcomes. Our goal is to make sure every one of your questions is answered, and you feel comfortable with your knowledge of the procedure. In your initial consultation, one of our surgeons will evaluate your health, discuss your medical history and carefully assess the areas of concern. He will then review your goals and make recommendations based on his evaluation. The techniques used in the gynecomastia procedure will be described in detail, and informational materials will be provided. Be sure to tell the doctor if you smoke or are taking any medications, vitamins or other drugs.
You will have a Patient Care Coordinator who will work closely with you through your entire time in our practice, serving as your resource for any questions or concerns you have along the way.
