Combating Man Boobs with a Gynecomastia Procedure
Restore your masculine chest
Women have boobs – men have a chest
Gynecomastia is the medical term for excess breast tissue in men and is usually caused by a hormonal imbalance that can be very difficult to locate and correct. In the meantime, man boobs are an embarrassing anomaly that causes otherwise secure men to become acutely self-conscious about their body image.
Fortunately, there’s a simple surgical procedure that fixes this problem for good, and results in a smooth and contoured chest, instead of a set of moobs.
First, a consultation will be scheduled during which time we will decide together how to achieve the exact look that you have in mind, as well as answer any questions, and cover cost and payment options.
The actual surgery is a simple outpatient procedure performed under a general anesthetic. It uses liposuction and / or excision techniques to re-contour the chest, and typically lasts around 90 minutes.
Liposuction is used to permanently remove excessive fatty tissue using a gentle vacuum through a thin hollow cannula tube. Excision techniques are employed when there is glandular tissue or excess skin to be removed, and also if nipple repositioning is needed. In both cases, the incision sites are placed in such a way to produce very minimal and unnoticeable scars.
The result is a smooth and contoured masculine chest. This is a permanent procedure that will last a lifetime, provided that there is no significant weight gain.
The Recovery Period
The incision sites will be bandaged, and following the surgery you will rest in one of our recovery rooms, where you’ll be given a set of aftercare instructions to prevent any complications.
Plan on about two weeks to recover, during which time you may be issued a compression garment to wear, to prevent swelling and fluid build-up, and support your new contours as your body heals.
This surgery is designed to be a permanent solution. However, large fluctuations in weight can affect this, so we encourage all our patients to follow a healthy lifestyle.
