Gynecomastia Surgery Miami
Gynecomastia, a condition characterized by enlarged male breasts, affects roughly 40% to 60% of men. And while doctors are unclear as to what exactly causes it, there are some medical conditions and drugs that can contribute to excess breast tissue developing.
So, while the exact cause of gynecomastia is unknown, the solution is: gynecomastia surgery from Plus Cosmetic Surgery Center in Miami.
Male breast reduction surgery in Miami
Gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction surgery) removes excess breast tissue as well as fat and skin from the male breast.
Our doctors will assess each individual patient to ensure they are an ideal candidate. And once the surgery is carried out, detailed after-care instructions are provided to help ensure the best results are achieved.
How is male breast reduction surgery performed?
The standard breast reduction surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure.
The first step is administering the anesthesia so you won’t feel any pain during the surgery. Once the anesthesia takes effect a small incision is made around the areola. It’s through this incision that the excess glandular tissue is removed.
Depending on your situation, and how much tissue needs to be removed, liposuction can also be performed to help achieve the best results.
Once the surgery is complete, the incision will be closed up with sutures, and a compression garment may be used to help the healing process.
Who is a suitable candidate?
Not everyone is a suitable candidate for this surgery. The ideal candidate for gynecomastia surgery in Miami is a man who:
- Doesn’t have any medical conditions that could negatively affect healing.
- Is in good psychological and physical health.
- Knows this surgery can improve their appearance, not perfect it.
- Understands that there are risks (although these are rare).
When you have your initial consultation with us, you will undergo a physical examination, and be asked about your health history.
At this consultation it’s important to let your doctor know what your desired cosmetic outcome is. Because this will allow them to help you understand exactly what gynecomastia surgery can and cannot achieve.
The men who are happiest with this procedure are typically those with realistic expectations of what this procedure can do.
Male breast reduction recovery
Ideally, for the first few days after surgery, you want to take it easy. This means no bending, and avoiding lifting your arms above shoulder height.
You will be prescribed some pain relief to help, and if you rest for the first few days, you should be good to return to your regular lifestyle.
With that said, in most cases it’s a good idea to avoid strenuous activities and exercise for two weeks post-op. And, to get the best results, you will want to wear a compression garment for the two weeks you’re avoiding strenuous exercise and activities.
