What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition where the male breast tissue is enlarged, resulting in breasts that protrude visibly from the chest. This condition can affect men in multiple stages of life and can develop due to hormonal changes, weight gain, heredity, and other factors. Gynecomastia can affect one or both breasts in can varying degrees of severity. At Metairie Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Sands performs male breast reduction surgery using the latest technologies at a state-of-the-art surgical center.
How is Male Breast Reduction Performed?
The main goal of gynecomastia surgery is to remove excess fat or tissue in the breasts and create a flatter, more masculine chest. Dr. Sands understands the unique needs of his male patients and will sculpt your chest to create better proportions with the rests of your body. Typical male breast reduction procedures consist of surgical excisions and/or liposuction to remove excess fat and glandular tissue, and incisions will be carefully placed to make post-surgical scarring as minimal as possible.
Am I a Good Candidate for Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
Men who have enlarged or protruding breasts and who have no medical contraindications for surgery may be candidates for this procedure. Dr. Sands and our medical team will assess your health, medical history, expectations and more to help you decide if male breast reduction is right for you. We will also discuss how you can prepare for your procedure and what you can expect.
What Can I Expect After Surgery?
Bandages may be placed around your chest after surgery to protect the tissues as they heal and control swelling. Some degree of bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort may also develop, which will gradually subside as you heal. Dr. Sands and our medical team will advise you on how much time you should take off from work and normal activities and will provide aftercare instructions to help you properly care for your incision sites.
After your healing process is complete, you can expect a flatter, more masculine chest. Although some surgical scarring may be present, incision sites will fade with time.
