What is Gynecomastia?

Gynaecomastia is a known condition that causes male breasts to become bigger than normal with a feminine-like appearance. Gynecomastia is usually the result of two issues:

  1. Excessive (hypertrophic) glandular tissue.
  2. Excess of fat tissue that does not respond to diet and exercise.

For severe forms of Gynecomastia due to a hormonal problem, the most efficient treatment is reductive surgery, including liposuction (fat removal), removal of the glandular tissue, and skin excision.

However, not all cases of gynecomastia in adult men are not related to hormonal dysfunction, and it is often mainly the result of excess fat in the breast. In these cases, liposuction alone should be enough to treat Gynecomastia. CoolSculpting and/or liposuction could help to reshape the male breast.

Why Do I Have Gynecomastia?

Male breast enlargement (Gynecomastia) is often the result of disorders of the endocrine system but can also be side-effects of certain drugs. Other causes of Gynecomastia include genetic disorder, excess body weight (obesity), alcoholism, and drugs such as anabolic steroids.

Am I A Good Candidate For Gynecomastia Surgery?

  • You are presenting an enlarged breast that has a feminine look. This condition is affecting your self-confidence and you feel self-conscious when you are expected to take off your top, such as when swimming or at the gym.
  • You are constantly feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your breasts.
  • You are healthy physically and mentally.
  • You have achieved your weight target.
  • Diet and exercises have no impact on the size of your breast.
  • You understand the limits of the surgery and have reasonable expectations.

How Is Gynecomastia Surgery Performed?

At the Manchester Gynecomastia Center, Dr. Mounir offers several surgical techniques to treat Gynecomastia. During your initial consultation, your experienced plastic surgeon will discuss with you which procedure will achieve the best cosmetic result depending on the breast tissue you desire to have removed. You will have the opportunity to discuss your expectations during your complimentary consultation.

Typical Gynecomastia Surgery Steps:

  • Gynecomastia surgery can be performed under general anesthesia or sedation.
  • An incision about three to four cm is made along the lower border of the areola (brown skin of the nipple).
  • Through this small incision, the excessive glandular breast tissue is excised.
  • The excess fat tissue is removed by liposuction.
  • The incision is closed with dissolvable sutures.

VASER Liposuction:

The most common surgical treatment for gynecomastia is liposuction. Liposuction is effective if there is more fat tissue than glandular tissue.

If fat removal is determined to be the right procedure to reduce the size of the breast, gynecomastia surgery at the Manchester Gynecomastia Centre usually takes about 90 minutes. After Gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Mounir, Manchester plastic surgeon, will advise you to wear a compression garment for at least six weeks. This will be discussed with you during your initial consultation. Bruising and swelling mostly resolve after four to six weeks, and, like other liposuction procedures, full results will appear after approximately six months.

CoolSculpting

A NON-INVASIVE PROCEDURE

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive procedure that has been proven to produce acceptable results in treating gynecomastia. However, you need at least three to four sessions to achieve the desired result. Generally, you can expect a 20% reduction in breast size after one session, but this varies from patient to patient.

Gynecomastia Skin Reduction
(Open Gynecomastia)

In severe forms of Gynecomastia, a more invasive surgical approach will be planned. This is usually necessary when there is extensive excess glandular tissue combined with loose skin.

Dr. Mounir will always start by making an incision at the lower border of the areola. However, if there is significant skin excess, another incision in the breast crease just under the breast will be needed.

Recovery After Open Gynecomastia

The recovery time will depend on the length and complexity of the procedure used to reduce the size of your breast. In open Gynecomastia, Dr. Mounir Manchester Plastic Surgeon almost always uses drains. He always uses a compression garment to reduce the swelling. You will need two weeks off work.
