Liposuction is typically utilized during gynecomastia surgery. Performed under general anesthesia, liposuction removes excess fat from the chest wall. In some cases, a small incision near where the glandular tissue resides is required. Once the fat and loose skin have been addressed, Dr. Munasifi will tighten the existing skin. The areola will be reduced, or the nipple repositioned to a more natural male contour.
What To Expect
After your gynecomastia surgery, the chest will be wrapped with a medical garment to help try and eliminate swelling. In advanced cases where a more invasive technique was used, a drainage tube may be inserted to assist with fluid. The results following gynecomastia surgery are immediately seen and most patients are extremely pleased with the physical change. The incisions made during this procedure take a few weeks to heal and scarring is usually barely visible. You can get clearance from Dr. Munasifi to continue exercise and strength training, which will assist in complementing the final outcome.
