FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Gynecomastia refers to the enlargement of male breast tissue, often caused by hormonal imbalances, obesity, genetics, or certain medications.
Good candidates for gynecomastia surgery are healthy men who have stable weight and realistic expectations. They should be bothered by the appearance of their enlarged breasts and have explored non-surgical options without success.
The two primary techniques used in gynecomastia surgery are liposuction, which removes excess fat, and excision, which removes glandular tissue and excess skin. In some cases, a combination of both techniques may be used.
Gynecomastia surgery involves incisions, so scarring is inevitable. However, our skilled surgeons employ techniques to minimize scarring and ensure that incisions are discreetly placed in natural creases or around the areola, resulting in less noticeable scars over time.
Recovery times can vary, but most patients can resume light activities within a few days. Strenuous exercises and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks. Wearing a compression garment is crucial to minimize swelling and support the healing process.
Yes, the results of gynecomastia surgery are generally long-lasting. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and weight is important to ensure optimal results over time.
In many cases, gynecomastia surgery is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance. However, it is advisable to check with your insurance provider to determine if any exceptions or coverage options apply.
As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications, although they are rare. These can include bleeding, infection, and changes in nipple sensation, asymmetry, and scarring. It is important to discuss these risks with your surgeon during the consultation.
While there will be some scarring, our skilled surgeons make every effort to minimize visible scars and place incisions in discreet locations. Scars typically fade over time and can be easily concealed under clothing.
