Gynecomastia

We generate a solution to growing breasts, which is men's nightmare, by gynecomastia surgery. By removing your excess fat tissues we provide you with the fittest look.

Gynecomastia Procedures

Gynecomastia surgery, also referred to as male breast reduction or reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure aimed at reducing the size of breast tissue in individuals. It is a popular choice for those with gynecomastia, a condition characterized by enlarged male breast tissue. The surgery involves the removal of excess tissue and fat from the breasts, resulting in a more masculine chest contour. By undergoing this procedure, individuals can enhance their self-image and boost their confidence. At American Aesthetic, we offer two main techniques for gynecomastia surgery: liposuction and surgical incisions. These techniques can be used individually or in combination, depending on the specific needs and preferences of the patient. To determine the most suitable approach, speak with one of our experienced patient coordinators who can provide personalized guidance and advice.

Gynecomastia Surgery

The most common technique for gynecomastia surgery involves making incisions that encircle the dark area around the nipple (areola) and following the natural curve of the crease beneath the breasts. This allows the plastic surgeon to remove excess fat and glandular tissue. In some cases, liposuction is also used to further remove fat and glandular tissue. If the weight of the excess breast tissue has caused sagging and stretched the areola, the surgeon can also reposition and resize the areola during the same procedure.

Who is a good candidate for the procedure?

When it comes to surgical gynecomastia, the ideal candidates are men who have tried alternative medical treatments without success. They should be in good overall health, free from any life-threatening illnesses or conditions that could hinder the healing process. It's also important for candidates to be non-smokers and non-drug users. Having a positive mindset and specific goals for improving the physical symptoms of gynecomastia is crucial. Additionally, candidates should be physically fit and at a relatively normal weight, with realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. It's important that their breast development has stabilized and that they genuinely feel bothered by the size of their breasts.

Post op Care

• Make sure that you take all of the mediicine prescribed by your surgeon.
• A corset should be worn for the first month after the procedure but in some cases the surgeon may suggest that you can wear a sports bra after the first week.
• After this time period, you may discontinue wearing the corset and wear a bra that has no wire supports.
• It is normal to have bruising or for the wound to seep after the operation. It is nothing you should be concerned about. However, If the fluid seeping through is a yellowish brown colour and smells, please contact your patient coordinator immediately.
• Your first post-op shower: you may shower 10 days after the operation has taken place. Be sure to remove any bandages and avoid using shower gel whilst showering, instead use a natural soap. You should not shower for too long and the water ideally should be tepid (neither hot nor cold). As soon as you have finished taking a shower, you should dry the wound with a dry clean towel and then cover it with a guaze and padding before putting your bra back on..
• Your second post-op shower: You may take your second shower 2 days after the first. You should not pick at the stitches or attempt to remove them. İn time they will disintergrate by themselves.
• You can go for a light walk 1 week after the operation.
• Do not reach up with your arms, carry and pick up heavy loads or drive for the first 2 weeks post-op.
• You may commence light activities such as walking and dancing after the first 2 weeks post-op.
• Light sports can be commenced 4-6 weeks after the procedure.

Gynecomastia Liposuction

If our highly skilled surgeons determine that there is no need for surgical gynecomastia due to a lack of excess skin, they may advise treating the area with either vaser or traditional liposuction. Vaser liposuction utilizes the power of sonic waves to break down stubborn fat cells before they are extracted, potentially resulting in a shorter recovery time and minimal damage to the surrounding tissues. On the other hand, traditional liposuction can also be an effective option to remove excess fat from the breast area and enhance the size and shape of the chest. The main difference between the two techniques lies in the approach to fat cell breakdown. With vaser liposuction, the use of sonic waves helps to emulsify the fat, making it easier to remove, while traditional liposuction relies on mechanical suction to extract the fat. Ultimately, both methods aim to achieve a more desirable chest appearance and can be discussed further with our experienced surgeons to determine the best approach for each individual case.

Post-op Care

• The corset you have been provided with should be worn for at least a month.
• Make sure that your corset is on correctly and comfortable while you are wearing it. It should not crease up.
• Any corset worn should be washed every 3 days. You may remove the corset for 2-3 hours in order to wash it, but it should be worn again as soon as possible.
• It is normal to experience seeping from the wound. It is no cause for concern.
• You should not attempt to remove any stitches. They will dissolve by themselves in time.
• If there is no drainage put in place, you may take a shower 2 days after the procedure.
• If you have drainage in place you may only take a shower 24 hours after it has been removed.
• The operation area should be lightly patted dry with a clean towel after you have taken a shower.
• After a period of 2 weeks has passed you should conduct a lymphatic massage on the affected area. This will accelerate both the recovery time and improve the shape of the body.
• Swelling post-op may continue up to 6 months after the procedure and the results of the procedure may not become evident until that time.
• You may start walking at a brisk pace 3 weeks after the procedure has taken place. However, if you experience any pain the activity should be discontinued immediately.
• You can start doing heavier sports 6 weeks after the procedure has taken place.

Book a free consultation with one of our expert advisors at American Aesthetic today, in order to assess your BMI so that we make sure that the procedure is appropriate for you. As there are medical and physical limitations as to how much fat can be safely removed, the procedure may not be suitable for those who are overweight. The procedure itself is best suited for body sculpting as opposed to weight loss.

People who get liposuction with us often have some of the following procedures done too:

Eye Brow Lift

The ageing process often results in a decrease in the distance between your eyebrows and eyelashes, and this lower position often makes people look tired, sad or angry. By making an incision in the scalp our surgeons will be able to get rid of any excess skin and lift your brow giving you a happier and fresher appearance.

Upper and Lower Eye Lift (Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty)

As we age, the tissues around our eyes stretch and as a result the muscles holding them together weaken. Blepharoplasty removes the excess skin that has formed as a result of this process making your eyes look fresher and more youthful.

Cosmetic Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

This type of surgery aims to change the shape, position and the size of the ears is often used to treat overly large or protuding ears as well as ears that have deformities. The surgical procedure used will depend on the needs of the patient.

Nose Job (Rhinoplasty)

Anyone who is unhappy with the way his or her nose looks or have some type of breathing problem may consider having a type of rhinoplasty procedure. The type of rhinoplasty you need will be decided by one of our surgeons. Sometimes, it is necessary to make an external incision in the fleshy part between your nostrils (Open Rhinoplasty) and occassionally from inside (Closed Rhinoplasty). There are also times when the bones and cartilage need to be operated on internally for both cosmetic and health reasons and often by straightening the septum (Septorhinoplasty). And finally anyone who has had a nose job are only suitable for Secondary Rhinoplasty.

Penile lengthening

This procedure increases the size of the non-erect length penis and less so the length of the erect penis. It involves dividing a ligament within the penis so that the length of the penis is increased. The average gain in length is around 4 cm, but of course, this varies from person to person. Unfortunately, there is no way to tell how long the penis will be lengthened before the procedure is done.

Penile fat transfer

By removing fat from one area of the patients body, usually via liposuction, the surgeon is able to transfer the fat to the shaft of the patient’s penis and thus increase the penis’ girth. By using the patients own fat any risk of an allergic reaction occurring is removed as the material used for filling is 100% natural.
