Say goodbye to “man boobs” and restore confidence as gynecomastia surgery helps you achieve a flat and firmer chest.
Gynecomastia surgery is a procedure that has been created to correct the appearance of an oversized breast in men. This surgical treatment is appropriate for males who are suffering from gynecomastia, just as long as they meet the requirements to be good candidates. We are proud to provide this procedure at our clinic with guaranteed safety and quality. Dr. Daood has 27 years of experience under his belt and a long list of satisfied clients. Another factor to his success is how he places importance in providing a personalized approach. Those who had their gynecomastia surgery with Dr. Daood felt more confident and happy with their new form.
1. What is gynecomastia surgery?
Also known as reduction mammaplasty, this is a surgery that is designed for males to flatten their chests and improve its contours from the effects of gynecomastia. Aside from improving the breast contour, it is also done to correct any deformities on the nipple, areola, and breast. This procedure helps males who have been battling gynecomastia feel more confident with their bodies.
In this procedure, the surgeon will remove excess fats, breast tissue and skin to create a flat and firm chest. It can create permanent results because the breast tissues and fats which are removed will no longer grow back. The surgeon may also have to reposition the nipples because this may also be affected by the significant sagging.
2. How does gynecomastia develop?
Gynecomastia, popularly known as “man boobs,” is a condition where breasts become overdeveloped or enlarged in males. This can occur at any age, and it stems from hormonal changes, obesity, heredity, steroids, and the side effects of certain drugs or medications. It is characterized by an excess localized fat, excess glandular tissue, and even excess skin as it becomes overly stretched. This condition can affect either one or both breasts.
3. Who is the right candidate for gynecomastia surgery?
Not everyone with gynecomastia can undergo surgery to correct it. Surgeons have specific criteria on which they base their choices for the right patients for the procedure. A good candidate should meet the following criteria:
- a. Physically and mentally healthy
- b. Within Normal body weight
- c. Has realistic expectations of the procedure
- d. Has experienced the condition for more than 12 months, or even longer
- e. Looking to improve the appearance of their chest and boost their confidence
- f. Have exhausted other measures, such as diet or exercise, to minimize breast size
- g. Those who do not have bleeding or clotting problems
- h. Those who have experienced pain or discomfort with their oversized breasts
4. What are the limitations of gynecomastia surgery?
It may permanently get rid of the excess breast tissues, but there is still a good chance that your breast size may increase again if you are not careful. The fat or adipose tissues may have been removed, but the ones that remained may balloon in size if you don’t control your weight, although it may not be as significant as the previous occurrence.
5. What does gynecomastia surgery involve?
At the Dr. Daood Clinic we use two methods to reduce breast size. The procedure is done under sedation and local anesthesia for day surgery. Akeyholee incision is created on the nipple where we do liposuction first. This is a small incision where the suction cannula will be placed to remove any existing excess fats. Then we extend the incision just a bit to remove the breast tissues. The entire procedure usually takes around 1-1.5 hours.
Like any other surgery this procedure also has some inherent risks. It includes bleeding, infection (occurs rarely), inadequate removal of breast tissues, and over removal of breast tissue. Numbness of the skin or nipples is also a risk with this type of surgery but it will only be for a few months, and is usually reversible.
6. Your recovery
Right after the procedure, you will be fitted with an elastic bandage or compression garment to further create a better form on your chest. You will be instructed to wear this for the next 2 weeks. The incision is very minimal which is why you can expect this to heal very well. The scarring will be almost invisible within three months time.
7. Things to be aware of
Gynecomastia surgery is an outpatient procedure. The Dr. Daood Clinic offers the Gynecomastia special which goes for AUD$3500 + GST in day surgery under local anaesthesia.
8. Your results
A lot of patients are very happy with their gynecomastia surgery outcome. It provides a solution which you also have to actively manage and maintain. This will help you feel more confident in wearing tight-fitting clothes, t-shirts, and even without it! Some patients also felt relief from back pain caused by severe gynecomastia. It does not leave you with a big scar, but a more inconspicuous one.
