About Gynecomastia

The scientific term gynecomastia is used for breasts in men that are overly large. This condition is one that can produce a feminine chest due to the increase of growing breast tissue. Many times, gynecomastia is related to an unknown hormonal problem. It can also be the cause of certain prescription drugs and medications, steroids, weight gain, or it can be hereditary. Adolescent and adult men with this condition often feel anxious and embarrassed, most commonly in situations where the chest is exposed, such as at the beach, pool, or the gym. Naples, FL aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Andrea Basile performs surgical breast reduction for men who suffer from gynecomastia. This surgery does have a positive success rate. It is known as one of the more common cosmetic treatments for men at Basile Plastic Surgery.

Ideal Candidates

Male breast reduction treatment is reserved for men with overly sized breasts that cannot be treated through medications or diet. If you are frustrated by the size and shape of your chest (but you're healthy and at a good weight), you could possibly benefit from male breast reduction surgery by Dr. Basile at Basile Plastic Surgery. Adolescent teens may also attain positive results from gynecomastia treatment; however, an additional procedure may be needed later as an adult if excess breast tissue continues to develop. In your initial consultation with Dr. Basile, treatment considerations will be provided, including the chances of moving forward with surgery to correct the condition.

Surgical Technique

A form of liposuction is typically utilized during male breast reduction surgery. While using general anesthesia, liposuction helps eliminate excess fat tissue from the internal chest region. Afterward, any lax skin will be carefully trimmed away to produce a taut look, and then the nipple area and surrounding areola will be surgically reshaped and placed into a proportionate position. For most men, this treatment strategy requires an incision in proximity to where the glandular tissue has formed. After the pockets of fat and excess skin have been appropriately handled, Dr. Basile will pull together the remaining skin.

What To Expect

At the conclusion of your gynecomastia surgery, the chest will be supported with a compression bandage to help try and eliminate swelling, bleeding, and bruising. For complex cases where a more intricate approach was used, a small tube for draining may be properly positioned to help with fluid. The outcomes following this procedure are almost immediately visible and most men are extremely excited about the cosmetic enhancement. Any incisions made during surgery take time to heal, and any scars left behind are barely seen. With your new, masculine-appearing chest, you may get medical clearance from Dr. Basile to incorporate exercise and weight training, which will help accentuate the surgical results.
