Fat removal is typically used during gynecomastia surgery. Performed under general anesthesia, liposuction is first used to remove excess fat from the chest wall. Next, any loose or wrinkled skin will be excised to create a tighter appearance, and then the nipple will be placed into a correct position. In most cases, this technique requires a small incision near where the glandular tissue resides. Once the fat and loose skin have been addressed, Dr. Schwartz will tighten the remaining skin.
What To Expect
After gynecomastia treatment, your chest will be wrapped with a medical garment to help eliminate swelling. In advanced cases where a more invasive technique was used, a drainage tube may be inserted to assist with fluid buildup. The surgical results following gynecomastia treatment are immediately seen and most patients are extremely pleased with the physical change. The incisions made during this procedure take a few weeks to heal and scarring is usually barely seen. With your enhanced chest, you can get clearance from Dr. Schwartz to continue exercise and strength training, which will assist in complementing the final outcome.
