Initial Consultation With Your Gynecomasty Surgeon in Miami

After reading this article, the next step you’ll take is to schedule a consultation. The consultation is a way for a breast reduction surgeon to learn more about you and what you hope to gain from gynecomastia surgery in Miami.

During your consultation appointment, your surgeon will need to know more about your current health as well as your medical history. Your surgeon will also perform an evaluation of your condition during a consultation.

Since many instances of gynecomastia are the result of imbalances with your hormones, you may also have your blood taken.

How is Gynecomastia Surgery Done?

There are several ways for a surgeon to perform breast reduction surgeries. Gynecomastia surgery is an outpatient procedure, only lasting about one to two hours. Before your surgery begins, you’ll receive anesthesia to help ensure that you don’t feel any pain.

The exact type of procedure you’ll need depends on the severity of your gynecomastia. With that in mind, here’s a closer look at three of the most commonly used procedures.

Liposuction

If you’re dealing with smaller amounts of extra breast tissue, liposuction might be the only procedure you require. To start this procedure, a surgeon makes a small incision and begins using a suction system to remove excess fat.

Excision

When there’s excessive glandular breast tissue present, a surgeon will use an excision process to perform a partial mastectomy. This procedure is common if you have a moderate case of gynecomastia. With excision, a surgeon removes glandular breast tissue and excess skin. This procedure might also require a surgeon to reposition your nipples.

A Combination of Liposuction and Excision Techniques

With more severe cases of gynecomastia, surgeons combine both liposuction and excision techniques into a single procedure. This procedure involves using liposuction to remove excess breast tissue in combination with excision of glandular tissue and skin. A surgeon might also need to reposition your nipples to complete this surgery.

Before and After Results

Recovery After a Male Breast Reduction Surgery

It’s understandable to know what recovery looks like after receiving breast reduction surgery. Don’t worry about not knowing what to do after this procedure is over. Your surgeon will ensure you receive post-surgery instructions to follow. You can also contact us with any questions or concerns you might have during the recovery phase.

As with most surgical procedures, the first few days of recovery will be the toughest. During this time, we recommend you get as much rest as possible. This rest allows your body to heal, it also helps recovery time go by faster.

We also recommend that you avoid doing any bending or lifting for the first few days after your surgery. It’s also important to wear your compression garments for as long as the surgeon recommends. A surgeon can also prescribe you pain medication to help deal with post-surgery soreness.

Generally speaking, most patients return to their normal way of life about a week or two after breast reduction surgery.

Gynecomastia Surgery Cost in Miami
