Understanding Gynecomastia:

Gynecomastia is a common condition characterized by the enlargement of breast tissue in males. While it often resolves on its own, persistent gynecomastia can cause embarrassment, discomfort, and self-consciousness. Gynecomastia correction, also known as male breast reduction, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the size of enlarged male breasts and create a more masculine chest contour.

Indications for Gynecomastia Correction:

Gynecomastia correction may be recommended for individuals who:

  • Experience excessive enlargement of breast tissue that persists over time.
  • Feel self-conscious or embarrassed about the appearance of their chest.
  • Have tried non-surgical treatments such as medication or lifestyle changes without success.
  • Desire a more masculine chest contour and improved self-confidence.

The Surgical Procedure:

At Neo TrueNorth, gynecomastia correction procedures are performed by our skilled plastic surgeons with a focus on achieving natural-looking and symmetrical results:

  • Consultation: Patients undergo a thorough consultation with our plastic surgeon to discuss their concerns, goals, and medical history.
  • Anesthesia: Gynecomastia correction may be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure and patient preference.
  • Incision: Incisions are made in inconspicuous locations, such as around the edge of the areola or in the natural creases of the chest, to minimize visible scarring.
  • Tissue Removal: Excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are carefully excised or removed using liposuction techniques to achieve a flatter, more contoured chest appearance.
  • Sculpting: The plastic surgeon sculpts the remaining tissue to create a masculine chest contour that is proportionate to the patient’s body frame.
  • Closure: Once the desired contour is achieved, the incisions are closed with sutures, and a compression garment may be applied to minimize swelling and support the healing process.

Postoperative Care:

Following gynecomastia correction surgery, patients receive comprehensive postoperative care instructions:

  • Compression Garment: Patients are instructed to wear a compression garment continuously for several weeks to reduce swelling, minimize bruising, and support the chest tissues as they heal.
  • Pain Management: Pain medication may be prescribed to manage postoperative discomfort.
  • Activity Restrictions: Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for a certain period to facilitate healing and prevent complications.
  • Follow-Up: Regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor healing progress, assess results, and address any concerns or complications.
