Receiving Gynecomastia Surgery to Lose Breast Weight


April 25, 2018

Running, swimming, biking, and other cardio activities are most men’s go to weight loss routine. However, when sticking to cardiovascular and aerobic exercise, losing weight in some regions of the body can be difficult. One of the complex weight loss areas for men is the breasts.

What Is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a common male condition where the breasts become enlarged due to extra fatty tissue or excess glandular tissue. While some men experience gynecomastia due to hormone imbalances and genetics, other men can suffer pseudo-gynecomastia from obesity. Unfortunately, when obese men lose weight, they typically deal with sagging or female-like contours in their breasts due to the elongated stretching of their fat. However, for both men who experience gynecomastia and pseudo-gynecomastia, there is hope for your situation.

What Is Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery is the removal of breast fat or breast glands from a man’s chest. In the breast fat removal variant, we use tumescent liposuction to suction excess breast fat to reshape the chest. At the start of the procedure, tumescent fluid is injected into the treatable area, this fluid numbs the area, prevents infection, and reduces blood loss. Tumescent liposuction, when compared to typical liposuction, leads to a recovery experience with less discomfort, lowered swelling, and overall faster recovery time.

When gynecomastia surgery is used to remove a breast gland, a discreet incision is made under the lower border of the nipple. Through this incision, the breast glands are removed, leading to an even looking that the patient can be proud to call their own. Although a small scar is left from the surgery, it is almost invisible once fully healed.

As you can see, regardless of the problem causing your gynecomastia, our surgeons can use medically-perfected techniques to lower your breast size. If you want a chest that you can be proud of, contact Wall Street Cosmetic Surgery today!
