Excess breast tissue in men, also known as gynecomastia, is a common condition that is often temporary. However, gynecomastia can cause embarrassment and self-consciousness if it persists. Many factors contribute to the development of gynecomastia, including genetics, lifestyle choices, hormonal fluctuations, and the use of alcohol and certain drugs. Gynecomastia surgery can be performed to remove excess tissue and fat to provide a more masculine chest contour.
- Minimally invasive
- Improved self-esteem
- Permanent results
Ideal candidates for gynecomastia surgery are men who have excess breast tissue or fat in the chest. Patients should be non-smokers in good general health.
How It Works
At Hotchandani Laser, Vein & Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Hotchandani uses Vaser before liposuction. A special cannula to break up hard breast tissue helps to avoid large incision in most cases. He also uses Renuvion for skin tightening (Trademark name ReNUplasty) where he uses combination of Vaser liposuction and Renuvion for optimal results under local anesthesia avoiding general anesthesia and associated side effects.
Recovery and Results
After your procedure, you will need to wear a compression garment for a 3-6 weeks to reduce swelling and encourage healing. You may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Over-the-counter medications may be recommended to make you more comfortable. Most patients can return to work in about one week. However, residual swelling in the area may be present for two to three months.
The results of your procedure should be permanent, as long as you maintain a stable weight and lead a healthy lifestyle. Patients will enjoy a flatter, more masculine-looking chest, and feel more comfortable in certain types of clothing, such as bathing suits and tight-fitting shirts.
