Many men suffer in silence with this often easily treatable problem. Often, they are too self-conscious to remove their shirts in public or at the gym because of persistent breast tissue especially around the areola that can result in a range of issues from protuberant areolas to “man boobs”.
The contour of breasts and chest can often be dramatically improved with simple laser liposuction and sometimes with more extensive surgery depending on the extent of the problem.
At Lotus we will work closely with our male patients to identify the problem and work towards a solutions to help them achieve their goals.
Gynecomastia surgery can often be performed under local anesthesia at our SlimStart Lipo Center using laser liposuction. If there is a great deal of excess skin that can not be corrected with laser liposuction, the procedure may need to be performed under general anesthesia to remove excess skin and restore a more tight, masculine profile. The procedure usually involves several very small scars hidden in skin creases or along the areolar border.
Some soreness and swelling after gynecomastia surgery is common, but usually easily tolerable. Depending on the extent of surgery, some patients may return to work within one week, and resume exercise within four weeks.
