Gynecomastia Improving patient results and care
Male breast tissue can develop during adolescence and our young adult years, and can be a source of distress and embarrassment. Dr Olivier A. Deigni can help remove this unwanted fat and breast tissue and restore a more natural male chest contour.
Description: Breast enlargement in men can be due to excess fatty tissue, excess breast tissue, or a combination of both. If the majority of the excess tissue is composed of fat, liposuction and direct excision of fat without removal of any skin may provide adequate correction. If the there is a large amount redundant skin associated with the breast enlargement, then removal of this excess skin may be required. A cannula is used to remove the fat tissue by liposuction. Excess glandular tissue is directly removed.
Surgery: The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 1 – 2 hours.
Recovery: Compression garments are worn to help reduce swelling and bruising and maintain the sculpted shape. Patients may return to work by 3 – 4 days. Most swelling and bruising has resolved by 2 weeks and patients may resume exercise by 3 – 4 weeks.
Expected cost: $6,000 – $7,000
