Gynecomastia

Eliminate the embarrassment and lowered self-confidence of excess breast tissue by creating a flat, contoured chest.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is excess or overgrown breast tissue in men resulting in a range of looks from puffy or pointed nipples to full blown “man boobs”. Gynecomastia is rarely a serious health risk, but for many it’s the main cause of embarrassment and lowered self-confidence.

What Causes Gynecomastia?

In some instances the underlying cause (hormone imbalances, steroid use, marijuana use, diet, etc.) can be diagnosed and treated, however, more often than not the reason cannot be identified.

How do I get rid of Gynecomastia?

Non-surgical interventions may be an important step to stop any further progression of tissue enlargement, but that does little or nothing to reduce any excess tissue already present. The only way to truly eliminate gynecomastia and prevent the male breast tissue from coming back is by removing it. Gynecomastia surgery fully gets rid of the existing overgrown male breast tissue, restoring a flat, contoured chest.

How is Gynecomastia surgery performed?

Gynecomastia tissue removal techniques vary in detail and need to be tailored to the concerns of each patient. Most procedures can range from simple removal of firm glandular tissue under the areola or chest liposuction to a combination of both. Occasionally, removal of sagging male chest skin is done after gynecomastia tissue removal to meet a patient’s goal. During an extensive consultation, you will discuss the areas of concern and your goals so an individualized plan can be formulated.

What are the scars from Gynecomastia surgery?

We understand that as distressing as enlarged male breasts can be, the stigma of scars associated with treatment can be unsettling as well. For this reason, only the most advanced techniques to allow minimally invasive gynecomastia tissue removal, accelerated skin contraction and skin removal are used. To remove gynecomastia tissue, a small curved incision within the areola, just below the nipple, is created to identify and then remove the firm gynecomastia tissue. Since this small incision is fully contained within the colored portion of the areola it heals with little to no visible scar.

Is gynecomastia surgery done in the office?

Simple and straightforward gynecomastia excision can be done in the office under local anesthetic. Nevertheless, a full examination must be performed before this determination can be made because gynecomastia acts much like an iceberg in the ocean- what can be seen (or felt) is usually just a portion of the true amount of gynecomastia tissue present. For this reason, most cases are performed under mild general anesthesia to ensure full gynecomastia tissue removal, proper male chest contouring, patient comfort, patient safety, and efficiency.

What is the recovery from Gynecomastia surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery typically takes 1-2 hours depending on the amount and complexity of male breast tissue removed. Surgery is performed on an outpatient basis meaning that after a short recovery, you will return home the same day. Following gynecomastia surgery minor soreness is typical, but basic daily activities can be resumed in the first 24 hours. You will wear a compression garment under your shirt for several weeks to help minimize swelling and allow early activity. Most patients can resume stretching and light activity without discomfort after one week. Strenuous activity and heavy exercise is generally avoided for 6 weeks. Once any initial swelling subsides, you can expect immediately visible results,

What can I expect after Gynecomastia surgery?

After dealing with the emotional distress associated with gynecomastia, sometimes for years, our patients often report a renewed enthusiasm for life. With a great new look, in and out of clothes, they feel great about themselves again.

Anyone considering facial, laser, skin, or augmentation services realizes it can be discouraging trying to find the right surgeon or facility. We research endlessly, only to stay just as confused as when we started. We then rely on word of mouth, pictures, or reviews. In my opinion Dr. Beck and the Sculpt Aesthetic staff are highly competent and you will be very pleased with your experience and results as I have been. Feel free to keep searching the internet endlessly, or take my word for it. Whether you are a man or a woman, you will be more than pleased with your results.

From my initial phone call with Marisa making my appointment to accommodate my schedule and going over some details to the time I was handed off to Lindsey explaining the quote and going into more detail about what I was interested in, these women are all TOP notch professionals and have a very kind and caring spirit. Linnea is amazing and you can tell she loves what she does. She listens to what your concerns are and then makes suggestions based on what you are trying to accomplish but by no means does she try to push something on you if you are not comfortable with moving forward. I can honestly say that I have been extremely happy with the entire staff at Sculpt and would highly recommend this office to anyone that wants a one on one experience to where you don't feel like you are just another number. WAY TO GO TO THE TEAM AT SCULPT....you definitely have what it takes to make your patients feel very cared for which is very rare.
