Male Breast Reduction is the surgical correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men. It is characterized as excess localized fat, excess glandular (breast) tissue, or both. It may be present in both breasts or only one. The condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men is common at any age. It can be the result of hormonal changes, genetics, disease or the use of certain prescription drugs or the use of anabolic steroids. This condition can cause emotional discomfort, impair self-confidence and deter patients from certain physical activities and cause embarrassment during intimacy.
Gynecomastia surgery can have a profoundly positive impact on your self-image and confidence as a man, allowing you to feel more comfortable in your own skin. Dr. Raj Ambay is uniquely qualified to help men achieve their desired outcome from this life-changing surgery. His Male Breast Reduction entails a combination of Liposuction and direct removal of excess breast tissue. This surgery offers many benefits, such as:
Liposuction alone may be used in cases of mild to moderate skin excess, breast tissue and fatty tissue. In cases where skin excess, breast tissue or fat are severe, a direct excision of skin or breast tissue may be necessary. Every case is individual and only after an in-person exam can the best approach to success for you be designed.
The process of liposuction requires the injection of sterile saline fluid infused with local anesthetic to help with pain and epinephrine which minimizes blood loss. A cannula is gently placed and fat is removed by vacuum assisted suction. Excision techniques are sometimes necessary when skin excess is a major concern. The goal is to create a natural,more defined chest contour and meeting with Dr. Ambay will help you to better understand your options. Dr. Ambay is available to schedule your consultation to see if this procedure is right for you.
After undergoing gynecomastia treatment with Dr. Raj Ambay in the Wesley Chapel, Tampa area, you can expect some swelling and bruising in the chest area which will typically subside within a few weeks. Pain is generally minimal and easily managed with pain medication. Compression garments will need to be worn for 6 weeks to help create contour, reduce swelling and encourage skin contraction.
Following Dr. Ambay’s post operative instructions will avoid most complications or risks associated with gynecomastia surgery. It is important to note that it may take several months for the final results of your gynecomastia surgery to become visible as swelling subsides and tissues begin to heal properly. Patience is key during recovery.
With proper rest, lifestyle adjustments such as avoiding strenuous activities or heavy lifting, and following all instructions from Dr. Ambay, patients will experience a successful recovery from their gynecomastia procedure.
The surgical procedure is recommended for candidates that have a healthy lifestyle and relatively normal weight with realistic expectations. In the ideal circumstance, breast development should be complete, however, in some cases adolescents may benefit from the surgery under some circumstances, Why Choose Ambay Plastic Surgery for a Male Breast Reduction.
