Dynamics of Gynecomastia


Sculpted Chest

Having excess fat in the breasts can be troubling for men who desire a more masculine appearance. Enlarged breasts are commonly associated with the female form, which may not be an appealing aesthetic to male patients. Our Beverly Hills male breast reduction surgery reduces stubborn fat deposits in the male breasts for a slimmer, more sculpted chest.

Physical comfort

Having enlarged breast tissue can cause physical discomfort for men who have gynecomastia. Men’s clothing is not designed to accommodate larger male breasts, which sometimes results in irritation and a limited range of motion. Men who undergo our gynecomastia surgery can eliminate these troubles so that they may feel more comfortable.

Improved confidence

Gynecomastia is a source of embarrassment for many men. Sometimes men afflicted with this generally benign condition avoid seeking treatment out of self-consciousness. Fortunately, gynecomastia surgery can restore a man’s self-esteem and improve his quality of life. Patients may be advised to massage the treatment area on their own for up to five days after injection. A gradual improvement of the depressed area will be seen over several weeks, and the results of Sculptra® Aesthetic can last up to two years.

Gynecomastia Surgery Journey


Preparation

  • Avoiding tanning the chest area for at least two weeks prior to surgery.
  • Avoiding shaving or waxing the chest area for two weeks before and six weeks after the procedure.
  • Quitting tobacco use for at least two weeks before and two weeks after surgery.
  • Making arrangements for a friend or relative to drive you to and from surgery as well as care for you during your first 24 hours of recovery.
  • Making sure to have loose-fitting clothing.
  • Dr. Stevens will provide the required compression garments for after your surgery.

Procedure

There are a few options for our Los Angeles gynecomastia surgery that ameliorates the appearance of enlarged male breast tissue.

  • Liposuction: Liposuction is a popular technique for fat removal. Patients with good skin elasticity who wish to reverse the effects of gynecomastia may achieve their desired results using liposuction. This technique is not suitable for patients who have excess glandular tissue
  • Excision: During gynecomastia surgery, excision is the surgical removal of excess glandular tissue, which cannot be removed with liposuction.
  • Combination: Some patients benefit the most by selecting a combination of gynecomastia surgery techniques. Excision and liposuction may be performed together for optimal results.

Preservation

To maintain your gynecomastia surgery results, it is recommended to avoid sun exposure to the chest area for as long as possible. Too much sun exposure early in the recovery process can make scars more noticeable and prolong swelling. It is also important to avoid drastic fluctuations in weight and other potential causes of gynecomastia to prevent reoccurrence.

Recovery

After undergoing male breast reduction surgery at our outpatient center, you should follow all instructions given to you by Dr. Stevens to ensure that your recovery goes smoothly. Take all prescribed medications as instructed to minimize discomfort and reduce the risk of infection. Any swelling should last only a few weeks. Rest for the first few days, limit your activities for a few weeks, and avoid strenuous exercises for four full weeks. Patients can return to work as soon as Dr. Stevens indicates that it is acceptable to do so.

Scars

Scarring is typical after major surgery. You will likely have some degree of scarring after your gynecomastia surgery, though the amount and location will depend on your surgical incisions. Typically the incisions are strategically placed along the border of the areolas to minimize their appearance. Scarring should fade as time passes.

Pain

You will receive anesthesia to prevent you from feeling any pain during your gynecomastia surgery. During your recovery, some discomfort and soreness may persist for up to a few weeks after surgery. Prescribed pain medications will help you manage any discomfort and make your recovery easier
