Gynecomastia treatment is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of male breasts that are enlarged due to excess glandular tissue or fat. This condition can be caused by hormonal changes, genetics, certain medications, or medical conditions.
During the procedure, the surgeon will make an incision around the nipple or in the underarm area and remove the excess tissue or fat. In some cases, liposuction may also be used to remove excess fat. The surgeon will then close the incision with sutures or surgical tape.
Before the procedure
Patients should consult with their surgeon to discuss their goals and expectations for the surgery. They may need to undergo certain medical tests to ensure that they are healthy enough to undergo surgery. The surgeon may also provide specific instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, such as what medications to avoid and what to eat and drink before surgery.
After the procedure
Patients will need to take time to recover. They may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort for several days to a few weeks. The surgeon may prescribe pain medication to manage any discomfort. Patients should avoid strenuous activities and lifting heavy objects for several weeks after surgery to prevent complications. They may also need to wear a compression garment to help with healing and reduce swelling.
The results of gynecomastia treatment can be long-lasting, but they can be affected by weight gain or loss, hormonal changes, or the natural aging process. Patients should also be aware that there may be some scarring and that they may need to wear a compression garment for several weeks to months after surgery to optimize their results.
