what is Gynecomastia surgery?

Gynecomastia is the medical term for male breast enlargement. It is a condition that can create a female-like chest due to abnormally growing breast tissue. In many cases, gynecomastia is caused by an underlying hormonal issue. This condition can also be caused by certain drugs, steroids, obesity, or genetics. Men with this issue typically feel embarrassed, especially in circumstances where the upper body and chest are seen, such as by the pool or in the gym. In West Bloomfield, MI, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Julio Sosa offers male breast reduction surgery for men who have gynecomastia. This surgical procedure has a very high success rate. It is considered one of the more popular cosmetic procedures for men at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery.

am i a candidate for male breast reduction?

Male breast reduction surgery is a procedure for men who have enlarged breasts that cannot be reduced with a healthy lifestyle or exercise and diet. If you are embarrassed by the appearance of your chest (but physically healthy), you may benefit from gynecomastia surgery by Dr. Sosa at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery. Teenagers may also benefit from gynecomastia surgery; however, a secondary procedure may be warranted later during adulthood if abnormal breast tissue continues to form. During your first appointment with Dr. Sosa, treatment options will be given and may include the possibility of undergoing surgery to repair the condition.

how is gynecomastia surgery performed?

Liposuction is usually utilized during surgery for gynecomastia. With the patient safely under general anesthesia, liposuction reduces excess pockets of fat from the chest wall. Next, any skin showing laxity will be removed to create a more tightened appearance, and then the areola and nipple will be placed into a proper position. In most cases, this method requires a small incision close to where the glandular tissue collects. Once the fat and loose skin have been removed, Dr. Sosa will pull and tighten the remaining skin.

how longis recovery after gynecomastia surgery?

Following your gynecomastia treatment, the chest will be secured with a medical garment to help minimize bruising and swelling. In advanced cases where a reconstructive method was used, a drainage tube may be placed to assist with fluid. The results following male breast reduction surgery are immediately noticeable and most patients are extremely satisfied with the physical change. The incisions made during treatment take several weeks to heal and scarring is usually barely visible. With your enhanced chest, you can get permission from Dr. Sosa to engage in exercise and strength training, which will complement the end results.
