Two surgeries in one day?

Thank you for your question. Yes, it is possible to both these procedures in one day. But it would be a long day for you and may be exhausting. It may be in your best interest to get both these procedures done separately.

Combining Male Breast Reduction with FUE

It is not uncommon to combine other procedures such as #abdominalplasty or tummy tuck with male breast reduction. There are three types of surgical treatment options available to treat gynecomastia. The excision technique is used on cases of #gynecomastia where excess skin and glandular breast tissue must be removed and the areola or nipple needs reduction and repositioning to create a natural looking appearance. The incision patterns are determined by the specific condition of the patient. 

Men who suffer from large #areolas may notice that after breast surgery, the skin of the chest muscles will tighten, causing the areolas to tighten and diminish in size. This is a result of the removal of glandular and/or adipose tissue. The doctor will recommend this procedure which combines the liposuction technique and excision technique to create a natural look. Patients are given specific instructions for the recovery period. 

Lastly, it is crucial you select a plastic surgeon who is #board-certified and has a great deal of experience with male breast #reduction. Plastic surgeons who have specialized in breast surgery and cosmetic surgery are suitable to perform your procedure. Aside from checking board-certification, it is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.

Can two cosmetic surgery procedures be done simultaneously? Gynecomastia and FUE?

Thank you for sharing your question.  It is possible to do both and you may want to look for ASPS board certified plastic surgeons who perform Neograft.  Hope this helps.

Gynecomastia Correction and Hair Transplant

Hi...  The combination of gynecomastia correction and hair transplant is an excellent one.  The key is to find a surgeon who can perform both well.  Doing both together will save you recovery time and usually save you money.  The next best option is to have two separate doctors perform the procedures either together on the same day (difficult to arrange usually) or on days very close together so you can still have one recovery.  Good luck with your search.  Take care.

Can two cosmetic surgery simultaneously be possible? Male breast reduction and FUE?

It is certainly possible that these two operations can be combined; it may be logistically challenging to find a plastic surgeon who does a good job at both operations? Or finding 2 physicians who can work together? Best wishes.
