Plastic surgery to correct gynecomastia is technically called reduction mammaplasty, and reduces breast size, flattening and enhancing the chest contours.
In severe cases of gynecomastia, the weight of excess breast tissue may cause the breasts to sag and stretch the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). In these cases the position and size of the areola can be surgically improved and excess skin may be reduced.
In cases where gynecomastia is primarily the result of excess fatty tissue, liposuction techniques alone may be used.
This requires insertion of a cannula, a thin hollow tube, through several small incisions. The cannula is moved back and forth in a controlled motion to loosen the excess fat, which is then removed from the body by vacuum suction.
There are various liposuction techniques that may be used; the technique most appropriate in your case will be defined prior to your procedure.
Excision techniques are recommended where glandular breast tissue or excess skin must be removed to correct gynecomastia.
Excision also is necessary if the areola will be reduced, or the nipple repositioned to a more natural male contour. Incision patterns vary depending on the specific conditions and surgical preference. Sometimes gynecomastia is treated with both liposuction and excision.
The procedure is done under either local or general anesthetic and after surgery patients are fitted with a compression garment to reduce any swelling and are chauffeured home complimentary by our clinic same day or after an overnight stay at our hospital.
Gynecomastia is generally performed as a day case procedure which means the majority of patients will be discharged same day. Please look at our aftercare section for post surgery follow up.
How effective is Mens Gynecomastia Surgery?
With Liposuction the results are immediately visible after the procedure and after the swelling has subsided final results will be around 3 to 4 months after the treatment has been carried out.
How many Surgical treatments will I need?
Only one treatment is required. Patients must continue to eat healthy and take regular exercise to maintain their results.
How long does Gynecomastia Surgery take?
The length of the procedure will vary with each patient and the size of area to being treated. However, we would normally state an average duration of 1-2 hours per full area.
Are the results of Gynecomastia surgery permanent?
Liposuction is a procedure by where the fat cells within the treated area are permanently removed. Any major weight gain will generally be distributed proportionately over other parts of your body. However one must still maintain a healthy diet and sensible eating thereafter. With excessive weight gain after surgery, one may realise that their treated areas (chest) may look aesthetically pleasing, but weight gain to the stomach has affected the natural shape of the body in general.
What are the advantages of Gynecomastia Surgery?
Can I have Liposuction on more than one part of the body on the day?
Yes, Our Surgeon can perform up to 4 areas in the same session (on the same day), according to your needs and requirements. This means besides having treatment on your chest, you may opt for liposuction to contour your abdomen.
