According to data published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, male breast reduction surgery was performed on nearly 30,000 men in the past year. Men interested in male breast reduction in the Dallas metroplex go to Dr. Weider to improve the appearance of oversized breasts by contouring the pectoral area of their chest. Such changes occur as follows:
- Removal of excess fat in the pectoral area
- Improvement of excess skin in the breast area, when necessary
- Allows for enjoyment in physical activities and intimacy that would otherwise be avoided
- Improves self-image and confidence
Dr. Weider performs male breast reduction surgery, also known as gynecomastia surgery, to reshape the male chest through his extensive expertise in body contouring. During consultation with Dr. Weider, you will learn about every component of gynecomastia surgery:
- Techniques involved in the procedure and the variations used to accommodate for special needs
- How skin elasticity and firmness of the pectoral area may affect the procedure
- Anesthesia types
- Facility choices such as our fully accredited facility and surgical center
- Guidelines to reduce the risk of complications after gynecomastia
- Costs for male breast reduction, including facility fees, anesthesia fees and surgeon fees
Dr. Weider performs male breast reduction surgery to provide firmer, well-proportioned chests for men. The time required for gynecomastia surgery may be two or more hours, depending upon the extent of the procedure. During male breast reduction surgery, Dr. Weider may use local anesthesia and sedation when utilizing liposuction to remove excess fat from the pectoral region. The advantages in this technique are in the simplicity of the surgery, inconspicuous incisions, and the speed of recovery. Finally, a compression garment may be placed around the breasts which should be worn for seven or more days following surgery.
AFTERCARE FOR MALE BREAST REDUCTION
Dr. Weider will see you within the first few days following gynecomastia surgery. You will be provided with guidelines for activity restrictions and discomfort management, including medications to assist with easing discomfort. You may experience swelling, bruising, bleeding and numbness following surgery which subsides with the aid of the compression garment and pain medication.
As with all medical procedures, complications rarely occur and can usually be managed by Dr. Weider. Scars will lighten over time, and Dr. Weider will do his best to place them in discreet locations.
Most people return to work within one to two weeks following the procedure.
The results will start to become evident very soon after the procedure and usually last for many years to follow. Gynecomastia surgery results may change over time, depending upon aging, weight changes, medical conditions and certain drugs. The benefits from male breast reduction are very rewarding for Dr. Weider’s patients.
