Expert Surgeons for Male Breast Reduction Procedure
A GLANCE AT YOUR GYNECOMASTIA
Gynecomastia causes a noncancerous increase in the growth of male breast tissues. This creates a visible deformity, which causes psychological trouble in men. The condition is associated with pubertal changes. About 75 percent of pubertal-associated gynecomastia cases don’t need treatment. They get resolved on their own within 2 years or so. However, sometimes, gynecomastia occurs in relation to several malady states. Similarly, pathologic causes of this condition may incorporate certain tumours, Klinefelter disorder, metabolic brokenness, endocrine issue, and low testosterone production as well.
This procedure is usually performed under General Anesthesia. An anesthetist doctor is always present. If you have any particular problems with anesthesia, then we can do it under local anaesthesia plus i/v sedation.
The procedure takes about 2 hours.
Two incisions are usually made, one on each side of chest and another in the areola.The incisions are very small, no more than 0.5 to 1 centimetre, placed inconspicuously adjacent to the flat part of the nipple (the ‘areola’), or at the outer edge of the fold under the breast.
First a salt water and anesthetic solution is injected – this is called tumescence fluid. An ultrasound probe is then inserted into the fat and breast tissue. Ultrasonic energy of the probe liquefies these tissues. Finally, a thin hollow tube called a cannula, is inserted and a high pressure suction machine aspirates the fat and / or glandular tissue – as the cannula is moved gently back and forth underneath the skin .Sometimes, it is necessary to make an incision in areola to remove firm breast/glandular tissue under the nipple.
Gynecomastia surgery is usually an outpatient procedure. You have to reach the clinic empty stomach at 9:00 AM and you will be sent home in the same evening say 6:00 PM.
Stitches (if any) are removed about 5 -7 days. Sometimes dissolvable stitches or surgical glue is used that don’t have to be removed.
You can do all the normal activities at home from the next day only but you should plan to be off work for 2-3 days. You might feel tenderness, which can be easily relieved by pain medication (tablets), usually prescribed for 4-7 days.
A support / pressure garment is worn for 4 weeks – day and night for the first two weeks, and then during the day only for another two weeks. This garment will help reduce swelling and conform/retract the skin to your new shape. Showering is permitted on the 3rd day after surgery. Any athletic activities usually have to wait until approximately 3 weeks. Scars will initially be red and a little raised, but over 3-9 months they usually get lighter in colour and flatten out.
Our result is flatter, muscular and aesthetically pleasing chest. We also target the fat in the axilla and the sides of the chest. We aim to give a midline groove and muscular definition in the pectoral region. The scars are usually well hidden.
The procedure re-contours the chest by removing the excess fat and gland tissues. This is permanent. There is rarely a recurrence.
You can start a leisure walk just 3-5 days after the surgery, as a mild exercise for mind and body. At 2 weeks you can start with exercises of legs, brisk walking and jogging. At 3 weeks you can do exercises of arms and abdomen. After 4 weeks you can start doing exercises of the chest. You should wear the compression garment during a walk, running or gym exercises upto 4 weeks. It’s better to get 2 pressure garment.
