Gynecomastia Surgery at South Coast Plastic Surgery

Do you feel self-conscious about your “man-boobs”, but aren’t seeing results through diet and exercise? Do you want more chest definition? Then it’s time to discover gynecomastia surgery at South Coast Plastic Surgery in Ladera, CA!

What is Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery is a procedure designed to correct the appearance of male breasts (more commonly referred to as “man boobs”). The main goal of gynecomastia surgery is to remove the fat and glandular tissue that contribute to the appearance of male breasts, leaving behind a more traditionally masculine chest. It can also help get rid of “puffy areolas” or areolas that look too big for your body. Gynecomastia surgery has an incredibly high patient satisfaction rate, with some formerly self-conscious patients describing it as “life-changing”.

How Does It Work?

Gynecomastia surgery is performed either with a small incision hidden by the areola or somewhere else on the chest. It can be combined with liposuction to break up and get rid of the fatty tissue. This also allows your plastic surgeon to sculpt the chest border, giving you the definition that you’ve wanted. It can be combined with Renuvion(R) technology to tighten the skin, leading to a more chiseled contour. The procedure can be done under local or general anesthetic, depending on what your plastic surgeons think is safest for you.

Am I a Good Candidate For Gynecomastia Surgery?

You’re a good candidate for gynecomastia surgery if you have noticeable male breasts that aren’t responding to your diet or exercise regimen. All candidates for this procedure need to be healthy nonsmoking men who have realistic expectations for their results. Sometimes nonsurgical treatments like CoolSculpting can be an option for appropriate candidates. A physical examination and appointment with one of our plastic surgeons will help come up with the right treatment plan for you.

What Results Will I See?*

Results can be life-changing for men who have felt self-conscious about their male breasts. Initial results are usually visible right after surgery (usually when the compression garment is removed) but include a flatter and more masculine-looking chest. Drains are not typically used by our plastic surgeons, but compression garments are key to avoiding fluid collections.

What is the Recovery Like?*

Most patients usually take a day or two off from work. Men should expect to wear a compression garment for at least three weeks after the surgery, which helps reduce swelling and shape the final contour of the chest. It also helps prevent fluid from building up. Our plastic surgeons are all about fitness and they will work with you to come up with a workout routine to get you back in the gym as soon as it is safe to do so.
