What to Expect
All procedures are done in a balanced and natural esthetic.
During the in-depth consultation we will thoroughly review your goals and expectations. We will discuss the various causes of gynecomastia and decide if any apply to you. From this we can derive a safe and effective treatment plan that may include further medical investigation, surgical treatment or both. Many men are concerned about scarring on the chest as it creates a stigma of surgery. We will discuss healing expectations and scar management. My goal is for you to leave the consultation excited for surgery.
Surgery is performed at an accredited surgery center in Newport Beach, California, USA and typically lasts 1-2 hours depending on the degree of shaping required to achieve a masculine result. Under the care of a Board Certified Anesthesiologist, general anesthesia (fully asleep) is used to ensure maximal comfort and safety.
The incision is disguised in the lower areolar margin and generally heals very well.
Patients are discharged home the same day and generally experience very minimal discomfort, often returning to light work within a week following surgery. Post-operatively, patients are advised to gradually resume their exercise regimen over a 4-week period in order to ensure proper healing. During this time, a compression garment is worn to optimize the final contour through a reduction in swelling.
The results are intended to be long lasting provided a healthy lifestyle is maintained.
