What Can Gynecomastia Surgery Address?

Excess Fat in the Chest

Excess breast tissue in men is often caused by an increase in fat being stored in the breasts. The excess fat can cause a man’s chest to protrude further than he would like. Even if the man maintains a healthy lifestyle, it is possible for fat to develop throughout the chest.

Sagging Breast Skin

When excess fat and glandular tissue develop in the breasts, it can cause the breasts to sag and create an unflattering appearance. Since men typically want a flat, chiseled chest to show off, a loose and sagging breast appearance can throw off their confidence in their bodies.

Areola Size

As the skin of the breasts stretches because of an increase in fatty breast tissue, the areola can also experience some distortion. The ideal male physique typically has a small, tight nipple-areolar complex on a firm chest, so overly large areolas can be a detriment to a man’s body aesthetic.

Gynecomastia Surgery Techniques

Depending on your specific needs and chest condition, one of these three techniques will be determined during your consultation. In any case, intravenous sedation and general anesthesia are both options for your surgery. Dr. Andreasen will discuss these options with you during your consultation at his Inland Empire practice.

Concerns

Recovery

After your procedure, it is possible that a drainage tube will be placed under the skin to prevent any fluid or blood from collecting. Your wounds will be dressed with bandages, and a compression garment may be applied to prevent swelling. The first three days of your recovery are critical. You should refrain from performing any tasks other than light walking or subtle movements. Most patients are able to return to work within a week of recovery. To ensure a speedy and healthy recovery, you should follow all post-operative directions given to you by Dr. Andreasen.

Scars

Dr. Andreasen does his best to make incisions in the least noticeable places possible. Your scarring will differ based on which techniques were performed and your unique anatomy. To reduce the appearance of the scar, keep it away from sunlight. All scars will fade with time.

Cost

The cost of your gynecomastia surgery will depend on the surgical, facility, and anesthesia fees. You will receive a detailed quote from Dr. Andreasen after your consultation. Qualifying patients are eligible for financing options.

Pain

You may experience minor pain and discomfort after your procedure, but these can all be addressed with over-the-counter or prescription medication.
