Gynecomastia is referred to as the benign enlargement of the breast tissue in males. It can be caused by the use of certain drugs, weight gain, hereditary condition, or hormonal changes.
Gynecomastia may occur in one or both breasts, and it begins with a small nodularity under the areola. The breasts may enlarge unevenly, and have a slight tenderness at touch. Gynecomastia during puberty is not uncommon, and it usually resolves in a few months or years.
In adults, gynecomastia may represent a cosmetic concern and surgery may be desired to remove the enlarged breast tissue. It is important to determine that the condition has been stable, or not growing, and that it has not responded to medical management.
Gynecomastia surgery and realistic expectations must be addressed in the consultation. Results are excellent in the right candidates for surgery, and the downtime is minimal. We perform a technique that can leave no scar in the areola or nipple area, thus preventing nipple inversion.
Note: Results vary and are not guaranteed for all patients. All images and benefits for procedures provided by Skinsational presented on this site represent specific results for individual clients.
By performing this procedure under local anesthesia with the patient awake, we are able to ask the patient to raise his arms and to contract the chest during the procedure, which allows us to see the results with the patient in a normal position, so liposculpting can achieve excellent results. This is not possible to be done when patients are under general anesthesia, or heavy sedation. Individual results may vary depending on a wide variety of factors that we will be happy to discuss during our consultation.
It is importance to have a postoperative examination and follow-up within days after the procedure, in order to address any issues. Complications of the procedure may include seromas, hematomas, lumpy tissue, asymmetry - all of which can usually be addressed in the postoperative period and corrected.
We emphasize our post-liposuction total care treatment regimen to our patients, which optimizes the postoperative treatment, recovery, minimizes downtime, expedites recovery, and it definitely improves the ultimate outcome. It is complimentary to our liposuction and liposculpture patients.
