Gynaecomastia

Gynaecomastia surgery is a male breast reduction procedure frequently performed to reduce the shape and size of the enlarged breast tissue. The surgery is quite effective in eliminating deposits of excess fat and breast tissue, whether severe or mild.
In severe cases of gynaecomastia, the weight of excess breast tissue may cause the breasts to sag and stretch the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). In these cases, the position and size of the areola can be surgically improved and excess skin may be reduced.
This surgery is also known as reduction mammaplasty.

Your Journey with CosmeSurge

Consultation

During your consultation, you will discuss your medical history with the doctor. Be completely open with the doctor about your concerns, habits and expectations. The doctor may take photos of your chest, measure them, and talk with you about how much tissue will need to be removed to achieve your goal. You will also learn about preparing for the surgery and planning for your recovery. You may get a breast exam before the surgery.

Your doctor might, delay your surgery if you have certain conditions like diabetes or heart issues. You will not be recommended the surgery if you are overweight.

There are certain guidelines that the doctor will advise you to follow before the surgery, like maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regularly, stop smoking at least three weeks before the surgery, to strictly avoid anti-inflammatory drugs or medicines having aspirin so that the risk of excess bleeding is reduced.

The Surgery

A gynecomastia surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and anesthesia is administered on patients for comfort and safety during procedure. If the breast enlargement is caused by mostly fat tissues, liposuction can prove adequate. Your surgeon will make small incisions on the underarm and on the edge of areola and then use a cannula (a slender tube) to disintegrate the fat. After that, gentle suction is used to take out the fat from the chest.

However, in cases where breast enlargement is caused by excess glandular tissue there will be the use of surgical excision techniques along with liposuction. In this, a small incision is made around the skin surrounding the nipple to excise the glandular tissue.

Post Surgery

During your gynaecomastia surgery, dressings or bandages will be applied to your incisions and an elastic bandage or support garment may be used to minimize swelling and support your new chest contour as it heals after surgery. A small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect. You might experience pain and discomfort around the chest after the surgery, and to cure this, you will be prescribed some pain killers. Experiencing swelling and bruising is quite normal after the surgery. However, it will settle down after a week. You will be able to resume your day-to-day activities after a fortnight.

After Care

In order to have successful long-lasting results it is important to follow the below:

  • You should take the medications prescribed by your surgeon regularly.
  • Wear a surgical garment to minimize swelling.
  • It is also advisable to not to sleep on your stomach.
  • Avoid all the activities which exert pressure on your chest.
  • Avoid lifting heavy objects and raising arms frequently.
