Typically, incisions are around your nipple, from your nipple down to your chest wall, and side to side under your breast. The skin over the breast tissue to be preserved is removed, after this, excess breast tissue and skin is removed, with the remaining breast tissue moved to its new position, and the skin closed around your new breast mound.
General or local with added sedation.
Between 2 and 3 hours.
You will have to rest at the clinic during 48 hours.
Your bandages will be removed after two days, and you will continue wearing a surgical bra around the clock for several weeks, until the swelling and bruising subside.
You may also be instructed to avoid sex for a week.
You will be able to do physical exercise again 30 days after the surgery.
The pain after surgery is usually easily managed with oral pain medications.
The stitches will be removed in one or two weeks.
Most bruising, swelling, should subside within three to six weeks.
The scars are placed in areas that are not seen unless you are topless, and can be hidden by most bathing suits. These scars are long, and they remain pink or brown for several years. For some women they become less noticeable.
In addition to the new techniques used to make your scars as inconspicuous as possible.
Our health care specialists have many tools at their disposal to reduce and treat scars from every part of the body through special scar removal techniques.
After your surgery we will offer you a free consultation with one of our health care specialists in laser treatment.
Laser treatment will help you to reduce the appearance of scars by 70 to 80 percent and prevent their recurrence.
According to your skin quality, the laser scar removal technique will prevent the appearance of keloid scars, hypertrophic scars, or atrophic scars, which have the following characteristics:
– Keloid Scarring: Firm, raised, and reddish-purple scars that extend beyond the initial wound area and builds over time.
– Hypertrophic Scarring: Firm, raised, and pink scars that remain within the initial wound area and possibly naturally regress over time.
– Atrophic Scarring: Depressed pin-like pockets in the skin that can result from skin conditions or diseases such as acne.
Gynecomastia (male breast enlargement), is a very common condition in men. It affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of men.
It can result in terrible embarrassment, teasing, and social trauma. Many will try to hide it with thick shirts, avoiding bare chested activities, and withdrawing from public exposure.
It may affect only one breast or both. Though certain drugs and medical problems have been linked with male breast overdevelopment, there is no known cause in the vast majority of cases.
For men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, breast-reduction surgery can help. The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured.
First, your surgeon will examine your breasts and check for causes of the gynecomastia.
Once your surgeon knows how much fat and glandular tissue is contained within the breasts, he can choose a surgical approach to best suit your needs.
If excess glandular tissue is the primary cause of the breast enlargement, it will be excised, or cut out, with a scalpel. The excision may be performed alone or in conjunction with liposuction. In a typical procedure, an incision is made in an inconspicuous location–either on the edge of the areola or in the under arm area. Working through the incision, the surgeon cuts away the excess glandular tissue, fat and skin from around the areola and from the sides and bottom of the breast. Major reductions that involve the removal of a significant amount of tissue and skin may require larger incisions that result in more conspicuous scars. If liposuction is used to remove excess fat, the cannula is usually inserted through the existing incisions.
If your gynecomastia consists primarily of excessive fatty tissue, your surgeon will likely use liposuction to remove the excess fat. A small incision, less than a half-inch in length, is made around the edge of the areola–the dark skin that surrounds the nipple. Or, the incision may be placed in the underarm area. A slim hollow tube called a cannula which is attached to a vacuum pump, is then inserted into the incision. Using strong, deliberate strokes, the surgeon moves the cannula through the layers beneath the skin, breaking up the fat and suctioning it out. Patients may feel a vibration or some friction during the procedure, but generally no pain.
General or local with added sedation (you’ll be awake, but very relaxed and insensitive to pain).
Between 1H30 and 2 hours.
Whether you’ve had excision with a scalpel or liposuction, you will feel some discomfort for a few days after surgery. However, discomfort can be controlled with medications prescribed by your surgeon.
You’ll be swollen and bruised for awhile–in fact, you may wonder if there’s been any improvement at all. To help reduce swelling, you’ll be instructed to wear an elastic pressure garment continuously for two weeks, and for a few weeks longer at night. Although the worst of your swelling will dissipate in the first few weeks, it may be three months or more before the final results of your surgery are apparent.
In the meantime, it is important to begin getting back to normal. You’ll be encouraged to begin walking around on the day of surgery, and can return to work when you feel well enough–which could be as early as a day or two after surgery.
REMOVAL OF THE STITCHES
The stitches will be removed about one week or 10 days.
The results of the procedure are significant and permanent. If your expectations are realistic, chances are good that you’ll be very satisfied with your new look.
