What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a common condition in men that is characterized by large amounts of fatty breast tissue. This condition generally occurs in young boys reaching puberty, but once puberty is completed, the condition reverses. In a certain percentage of individuals, the condition remains permanent until surgically corrected. While the exact cause of this condition is not known, it may be linked to hormone levels and enlargement of tissues in the male breast region. Regardless of its cause, gynecomastia can cause discomfort and self-consciousness in men of all ages. Male breast reduction, or gynecomastia surgery, is often the best solution.
What is Gynecomastia Surgery?
At Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics, male breast reduction consists of removing extra breast and fatty tissue from the chest region. In many cases, the gynecomastia can be treated with traditional liposuction. Male breast reduction is done through small incisions in and around the nipple/areolar complex and below the breasts. The scars are small and well hidden. In more severe cases, it is necessary to make a small incision below the nipple and actually remove the breast tissue surgically. This is usually combined with liposuction to smooth and refine the results.
How is Recovery After Gynecomastia Surgery?
Recovery after gynecomastia surgery can vary depending on the extent of surgery involved in treatment. During your consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan in order to satisfy your unique cosmetic goals. At this time, we will explain what your treatment will involve as well as what you can expect from recovery. Patients will typically experience swelling and bruising after their procedure, which will fade in the early weeks following treatment. Most patients are able to resume work and other normal activities within a few short weeks.
