Male Breast Reduction Gynecomastia

A male breast reduction, or Gynaecomastia, is a type of cosmetic surgery to help men whose breast tissue is abnormally large in size and appearance. Gynecomastia is a medical term that means “women-like breasts”, and lay people sometimes refer to it as “Manboobs”. Male breast Reduction Gynecomastia is far more common than many realize. Gynecomastia affects an estimated 30 to 60 percent of the male population. It may affect only one breast or both. Certain drugs such as anabolic steroids, medications containing estrogen, alcohol, marijuana, etc., may cause gynecomastia. Also medical conditions including cancer, impaired liver function, may cause or contribute to enlarged male breasts. However it is widely accepted that the majority of cases derive from unknown sources. Some of the benefits of surgery include a firmer, flatter, more contoured chest which may give the male patient a boost in self-confidence.

Prof Wilson will remove excess tissue from your breast area, and remove any excess skin if needed. After the surge of bariatric surgery, Prof Wilson has operated frequently on males who are struggling with excess, loose, saggy skin after losing considerable amounts of weight. However, male breast reduction surgery should not be used as a weight loss alternative for males whose breasts are large in size  due being overweight.

Am I a good candidate for the surgery?

Your visit with Dr. Wilson will determine if you are a good candidate for Male breast Reduction Gynecomastia surgery. Fit candidates for male breast reduction surgery (Gynecomastia surgery) are men of any age who are healthy and emotionally stable. The best candidates are those who have firm, elastic skin that will reshape to the body’s new contours. In some instances, Prof Wilson may discourage surgery for overweight men, who have not first tried an exercise and diet regimen.

What should I expect from my consultation?

During the consultation, Prof Wilson will ask about the history of the gynecomastia, if it is unilateral or bilateral, and anything else related to the appearance of your breasts. Then, Dr. Wilson will examine your breasts and will consider if there is just fat or discoid tissue in the breast. He will explain which surgical techniques are most appropriate for you, based on the condition of your breasts and skin tone. You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your medical history. This will include information about any medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments you have received, including previous surgery.  You should have ready any reports from previous surgeries, and medications that you currently take. It is important for you to provide complete information.

How is the surgery performed?

Prof Wilson can reduce Enlarged male breasts (Gynecomastia) by Laser or Vaser Liposuction and/or by cutting out excess glandular tissue. The procedure for male breast reduction takes an average of 1-2 hours, using general or local anesthesia. Dr Wilson removes excessive glandular tissue, fat and skin (if present), through an ellipse-shaped incision that circles the lower half of the areola.

Surgery may be performed alone or in conjunction with Laser or Vaser Liposuction, where he inserts the suction device through the existing incisions. Rarely, liposuction may be all that is needed for the removal of excess fatty tissue alone. These fortunate cases end up with small scars that are barely visible.

Care after Gynecomastia Surgery:

The surgical assistant will fit you with a compression garment after surgery. You will need it to wear for 3-4 weeks to  reduce swelling and aid the overall contour. In a few select cases, Prof Wilson might insert a small plastic tube to drain any extra blood. He usually removes it on the same day of the surgery before you go home. Regarding stitches, they usually dissolve after 10-15 days on their own.

Risks of Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Surgery)

Fortunately, significant complications from breast reduction are infrequent. Occasionally, there might be some post-operative bruising, swelling, and burning sensation. There might be scarring around the nipple of the breast (areola) from this procedure but will fade over a period of time and be less visible.  Other considerations include temporary numbness or lack of sensation that could last up to a year.

What is the cost of surgery to correct Gynecomastia?

Professor Wilson believes that affordable cost plastic surgery is the right of every individual. He will never allow financial restraints to prevent you from having a masculine harmonious chest. However, many factors affect the cost of surgery to correct male breasts, including the extent of surgery, type of surgery, type of deformity, and other factors. After the consultation, the patient coordinator will offer you an affordable price quote.
