If you’re a man with excess breast tissue, you might be avoiding the type of activities that most people take for granted.
Stepping out the door for a run, pulling on a favorite t-shirt, getting sun at the beach, or being close to others: men with gynecomastia often feel hesitation or anxiety about some of the best experiences in life. At Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center in Temecula gynecomastia surgery is performed for patients who are ready to live life on their terms.
This very common procedure permanently resolves the condition and has a short recovery time. As a result of surgery, you can expect to have a more sculpted chest, a flatter body contour, and more confidence in the way you look.
All males develop some amount of excess tissue when they go through puberty. Generally, this tissue goes away by the time men enter their late teens and twenties. For some people, however, the tissue stays around into late adulthood. Other factors can cause excess breast tissue to develop, including natural hormone changes and certain drugs, medications, and health conditions.
The gynecomastia surgery Temecula patients receive at Renuance is a relatively straightforward procedure. Your surgeon will:
The tissue that your surgeon removes will be gone permanently and should not come back even with weight gain. Signs of surgery should be well hidden after your recovery.
Renuance provides our Temecula, Murrieta and Riverside County patients with a private and professional setting to learn about surgical procedures. We understand that gynecomastia can be a difficult topic to discuss for some patients, and we make the experience as straightforward and discrete as possible.
You will start with a telephone consultation, during which we can give you information about how treatment works, what you can expect in our care, and the type of results that gynecomastia surgery can provide. This is a great way to explore the decision without commitment. Next, you’ll visit with your Renuance surgeon to talk about the results you’d like to achieve.
Many of our patients want to know exactly how much tissue gynecomastia surgery can remove, and a physical examination will help your surgeon set your expectations about the improvement you’ll get. Renuance encourages you to take time during your consultation and to ask any questions you may have. We want you to feel completely comfortable with your decision. When you decide that you’re ready, you can schedule your procedure.
With any procedure, safety should be the highest priority of your caregiver. All of Renuance’s surgeries take place on-site in an AAAASF-certified suite. This designation shows that our practice is committed to the highest level of care.
Riverside County patients also appreciate that all of their treatment takes place at one location, with staff that values their privacy and comfort. Most men who will have gynecomastia surgery will receive general anesthesia so that they can sleep through the experience. During the procedure, your Renuance surgeon will:
Generally, patients will come back to Renuance one day, one week, one month, and six months after gynecomastia surgery for follow-up visits. Surgical drains will be removed 24 hours after the procedure. Most patients stop taking pain medication and return to office work within seven days. If you follow an exercise regimen, you can expect to get back to it after two weeks. By this point, you should be able to see the results of your procedure; your chest will have a firm and masculine contour, and you should feel free to enjoy any of the activities you might have been avoiding.
There are many causes of gynecomastia. These include a slight hormonal imbalance during puberty, which results in the growth of the male breasts, weight gain in puberty or adulthood, and the use of certain products, including supplements, testosterone, and other medications.
