Gynecomastia

Treatment of gynecomastia

Gynecomastia requires surgical treatment which can involve liposuction, tissue resection or a combination of both.  This would depend upon the nature of the tissue to be removed and the degree to which the skin and nipple-areolar complex require correction.  Both are common procedures routinely performed by board certified plastic surgeons.  A personal consultation will help you to understand the surgical dynamics of your situation.

There are many options, but the treatment of choice depends upon your exam.  If the skin is not significantly loose, and the tissue is mostly fatty, liposuction can be a good option.

ow should I choose a surgeon?
Choose carefully. The decision is yours. Advice to assist in making your selection.
1. Experience matters. Choosing a surgeon increases the likelihood that they have seen a case similar to yours in the past. Selecting a surgeon whose practice is focused on gynecomastia exclusively is also an indicator of experience.
2. Results matter. The more before-and-after pictures, the better. Pay attention whether the surgeon is confident enough to show multiple angles of the same patient.
3.Only gynecomastia Reviews matter.
4. Expertise matters. Is your surgeon recognized by the profession as an authority in the field? Have they authored books or medical journal articles regarding your surgery?
Be realistic about your expectations. Also, revision surgery tends to be significantly more difficult than initial surgery.
