Gynecomastia is a common condition in which men develop excess tissue in the breast. This excess tissue covers fat, skin and sometimes gland tissue. Now more than ever, people are taking advantage of sophisticated new techniques to treat this potentially embarrassing condition. We have gone beyond traditional liposculpture and added the Minimally Invasive Lipomatic Vibroliposuction System. This allows us to remove the fat in a much less traumatic fashion and at the same time resulting in significantly tightened skin. The 20 minutes procedure is performed in our certified surgery center, where patients are given a local or twilight anesthesia on an outpatient basis.
Why should I have Gynecomastia Operation?
If you have an excess tissue in your breasts and this is an embarrassing situation, if you often try to hide your breasts, if you feel uncomfortable at the beach with the enlarged breast of yours then you can be a good candidate for the gynecomastia operation.
Gynecomastia operation is performed under general anesthesia and it takes to perform the procedure nearly 1 hour when it is performed by a team of plastic surgeons. It is really important to decrease the operation duration to give less anesthesia to the patient yielding a better postoperative period to the patient. You will be advised not to eat 6 hours before the surgery and that is all! You will get a physical examination by your surgeon and anesthetist. After the examination; we will prepare you for the surgery. You will receive a sedation in order to reduce the preoperative anxiety and fell yourself more comfortable.
There are 2 kinds of gynecomastia operations; the one with incision and the one without incision. According to the classification of your status your surgeon will select the operation type. In most cases there is no skin incision and the removing of the excess fat tissue via “Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture” is enough to get a natural appearance. Nutational Movement of the Liposculpture device increases the elasticity of the skin tissue therefore the skin tissue of the operated area gets tightened. The cannula of the liposculpture device is entered from a tiny incision under the areola therefore you will not have any scar after the operation if the operation is performed without incision. If you have too much excess skin that needs to be removed then an incision should have to be made and the skin should be removed. Sometimes a skin incision is necessary to remove the gland tissue if the glandular tissue is so big that should be removed surgically.
Recovery and Results :
After the gynecomastia operation the recovery period depends on your physical status, age, general health and condition mainly. The operation itself does not take too long therefore you receive a mild anesthesia. Since the anesthesia that you receive is mild; you will not have problems associated with anesthetic agents after the operation. This is especially important and can be achieved with only a team of plastic surgeons like we have. After the operation you will not have any stiches. You will advised to wear a bandage to prevent the edema. You can start to do your daily activities just after the operations but we do not advise you heavy lifting, running or activities that require excess physical activity. The more you rest, the faster your recovery will be.
