A common swelling of the breast tissue in adolescent boys and adult men, gynecomastia can cause self-consciousness and be potentially difficult to correct without surgical intervention. At Carolina Plastic Surgery, our gynecomastia treatment can restore flatter, more masculine contours to the chest to improve your overall appearance.
What is Gynecomastia?
A common condition that affects either one or both breasts in adolescent or adult males, gynecomastia is an enlargement or swelling of the male breast tissue. While not always a cause for medical concern, many males choose to receive gynecomastia treatment to restore a flatter, more masculine aesthetic to the chest.
A completely treatable condition, gynecomastia can be caused by:
- Hormonal changes caused by puberty or other factors
- Certain medications or medical conditions
- Weight gain
Additionally, there may be factors that put certain men at risk for developing gynecomastia. Determining the underlying cause of this condition can help ensure that it does not recur after the procedure is complete. These options can be discussed with Dr. Saini during your consultation at our Fayetteville office.
This condition does not always go away by itself, and at Carolina Plastic Surgery, we can help restore your confidence in your body image with gynecomastia treatment. This procedure may vary depending on the level of correction required, but in most cases excess breast tissue and/or fat are removed using excision or liposuction. Minimal incisions are used to create as little post-surgical scarring as possible.
Before & After Photos
As minimal incisions are used during this procedure, the recovery time is fast for most patients, although some residual swelling, bruising, and slight discomfort may persist shortly after the procedure. Dr. Saini will discuss how much time you should take from work and normal activities as well as what you can expect during the treatment and healing process.
Most patients experience full results after the initial healing process is complete without any follow-up procedures, and identifying the source of your gynecomastia can help ensure that this condition does not recur in the future.
