Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction)
Male breast enlargement or gynecomastia can be treated successfully through a new and less invasive procedure. Dr. Sundin at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery has introduced a new and advanced technique for performing gynecomastia surgery. It allows him to tighten the skin and excise breast glands through a quarter-inch incision. This small incision makes the surgery less invasive, less painful, and it involves minimal downtime.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides minimally invasive gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction) to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.
Advantages of Gynecomastia Surgery Using the New Technique
- Low risk of complications
- Less invasive
- Less time spent in the operating room
- Post-surgical scarring is virtually invisible
- Minimal post-operative discomfort and pain
- Faster recovery
- Reduced downtime
How Does the Surgery Work?
Enlarged male breasts consist of excess fatty tissue and glandular tissue. Liposuction can be used for removing the soft fat tissue deposits. However, the denser and firmer glandular tissues need to be excised. This excess glandular tissue can be removed by Dr. Sundin using a new technique that requires making small incisions – the size of ¼ inch.
The tiny incision is usually located in the nipple-areolar complex margins or another discreet location for near-invisible scarring. Excision techniques and liposuction cosmetic surgery may be carried out in combination or individually depending on the unique patient needs and conditions.
Tissue Excision Surgery
The new, minimally invasive surgical tissue excision procedure is used by Dr. Sundin in the more severe male breast reduction cases. In addition, a tissue excision surgery may help if there is stretched or loose skin around the breast area. Dr. Sundin is able to remove more glandular breast tissue and surplus skin by using the small incision technique as compared to liposuction alone.
The location and size of the incisions differ depending on the size of male breast enlargement. The new surgical technique is less invasive with minimal scarring. The gynecomastia surgery may involve liposuction if excess fatty tissue is present. General anesthesia is used for performing tissue excision surgery. However, tumescent technique may be used if only liposuction is necessary. This requires sedation and local anesthesia.
Puffy Nipple Gynecomastia
One of the more common types of gynecomastia is the Puffy Nipple. ‘Puffy’ appearance of the nipples is due to an excess amount of breast tissue under the areola and nipple that pushes the nipple outward. This makes the appearance of nipple overly visible, particularly in thin shirts.
Results and Recovery
Your recovery following male breast reduction surgery using the new technique will be similar to the recovery time taken during liposuction. You should be able to return to your regular routine in 4 – 6 days. The results of the technique are permanent because glandular and fatty tissue that is removed once doesn’t return. You can maintain the new and improved contours of your male chest by following a healthy lifestyle.
