Gynecomastia is a condition in which breast tissue in men increases. It can happen with:
You might also experience breast sensitivity or pain and reduced self-esteem with gynecomastia. Male breast reduction surgery at Desired Beauty can correct the problem and restore your confidence.
To determine if you’re a good candidate for male breast reduction surgery, Dr. Kerendian reviews your medical history and completes a physical exam. He discusses your desired outcome and lets you know what to expect during a breast reduction procedure.
To prepare for male breast reduction, follow Dr. Kerendian’s pre-surgery instructions. Avoid smoking and taking certain medications. Don’t eat or drink anything the morning of surgery. Plan to have someone drive you home and stay with you for at least one night after your procedure. You should also schedule 1-2 weeks off from work to help your body recover.
You’re given general anesthesia just before male breast reduction surgery, so you stay asleep and don’t feel any discomfort. Dr. Kerendian removes excess tissue and corrects breast deformities in the nipple, areola, and breast.
He might use liposuction, excision, or combinations of surgical approaches to eliminate tissue and reconstruct the area before stitching up your incisions.
Rest and recover after your breast surgery procedure, and you should be sure to follow all post-surgical instructions. Have a friend or family member drive you home and stay with you. You might feel some tenderness and experience swelling or bruising. Wear a compression garment for about two weeks and take all medications as prescribed. You can usually resume normal activities after about a month.
Attend all post-surgery follow-up visits, so Dr. Kerendian can evaluate your progress and check for signs of infection.
Don’t live with excess breast tissue that makes you self-conscious and negatively impacts your quality of life. Schedule a male breast reduction surgery consultation with Desired Beauty by calling the office or requesting an appointment online.
