Gynecomastia Surgery Procedure What to expect during Male Breast Reduction Surgery
During your consultation for male breast reduction Oakland plastic surgeons, Dr. Williams will determine your specific surgery plan based on the cause of your enlarged breasts. If your gynecomastia is due to excess fatty tissue, liposuction will be sufficient. Advanced modern techniques allow the use of liposuction for most gynecomastia surgeries.
Dr. Williams will place incisions around the areola or around the armpit area, removing excess fat through a hollow tube, and sculpting a new chest contour that fits your body. Breast reduction surgery using liposuction shows great results and few complications. The risks of compromised blood supply, nipple distortion, and areola slough are greatly reduced. In cases where glandular breast tissue or excess skin must be removed, an excision technique may be preferable, where tissue is surgically removed. Puffy nipples can also be addressed using a combination of liposuction and excision techniques.
