Am I a Candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery? The best candidates for gynecomastia (male breast reduction) surgery is a healthy male of any age (including adolescents or teens) who wants to dramatically improve his physical appearance and is eager to get rid of emotional and physical distress, while boosting his self-confidence and physical appearance.
Which Gynecomastia Surgery Technique is used by the Gynecomastia Center of Long Island’s Plastic Surgery Team? Dr. Funt is an experienced Long Island gynecomastia surgery specialist. The board certified plastic surgeon uses a combination of cosmetic surgical procedures such as liposuction and glandular tissue removal to perform gynecomastia surgery. Each patient’s surgery is customized to the man’s unique anatomy. Oftentimes, liposuction is used to remove the excess fat in the chest area surrounding the breast tissue. Dr. Funt specializes in SMART lipo, a safer alternative to traditional liposuction. The gynecomastia procedure involves:
- Anesthesia: Gynecomastia surgery can be carried out under sedation, local or general anesthesia – this will vary from case to case depending on the extent of your gynecomastia.
- Gland Excision: If glandular breast tissue or excess skin needs to be removed by the Long Island plastic surgeon during the gynecomastia surgery, the board certified plastic surgeon will most likely use the excision technique. This method is also used to reduce the areola and re-position the nipple in its natural position.
- SMART Liposuction: Liposuction is one of the treatment methods for gynecomastia, used to remove the excess fat in the chest area surrounding the breast tissue.
- Combination of SMART Liposuction & Gland Excision: Depending on the individual situation of the patient, both liposuction and excision might be needed to achieve the optimal desired result.
How Long Does the Surgery Take? Most gynecomastia surgery is completed by the board-certified gynecomastia specialist at the Gynecomastia Center of Long in as little as 1.5-2 hours at our Woodmere, Nassau County, Long Island surgery center.
Does Gynecomastia Surgery Leave Scars? The best in class plastic surgeon of the Gynecomastia Center of Long Island will ensure that scarring from your gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction is minimal). The board certified plastic surgeon will make surgical incisions at the point that will be least noticeable to your unique anatomy, if not hidden, typically along the lower border of the areola, where the pink and white skin comes together. Within 6 to 12 months after surgery, most scars have usually faded to be indistinguishable from the surrounding skin.
Is the Gynecomastia Surgery Painful? Most of the patients of Gynecomastia Center of Long Island report discomfort after male breast reduction surgery, but not significant pain. Pain relief medication is supplied by the plastic surgeon for the post recovery period though most patients report that any pain they have experienced dissipates within two days.
How Long is the Recovery Time From Gynecomastia Surgery? Recovery time varies from man to man, most people resume daily activities 2-3 days after the surgery, and typically return to work 1 to 2 weeks later. You can expect to be exercising again in 3-4 weeks. Any stitches applied to incisions will dissolve naturally.
