Before and After Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia - Abnormal male breast enlargement

Typically first seen in puberty

Most Gynecomastia is self limiting, returning the chest area to a normal appearance after puberty has ended

The causes of Gynecomastia are many, however, the most common causes are hormonal imbalance, marijuana usage and male steroid ingestion (body builders)

A condition referred to as Pseudo-gynecomastia or false Gynecomastia mimics true Gynecomastia.  In Pseudo-Gynecomastia the breast enlargement is due to fat deposits rather than true glandular enlargement

General Information About the Surgery

Treatment consists of excision of the firm glandular tissue through a semicircular incision placed at the base of the areola, similar to that used in breast augmentation

I like to include liposuction, to contour the remaining breast area which has fat interspersed with the enlarged glandular tissue

If the nipples are puffy these can be addressed also during this procedure

Anesthesia: General preferred

Surgical time: 2 to 3 hours

Recovery time: 3-4 week
