Frequently Asked Questions on Gynecomastia in Westchester County NY
What is gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a medical condition characterized by the enlargement of breast tissue in males. It occurs due to an imbalance in the hormones estrogen and testosterone. Though it is not a serious health concern, it can cause physical discomfort and psychological distress for those affected.
Gynecomastia can occur at any age, but it is most common during puberty and in older men. It can be caused by various factors, including hormonal changes, certain medications, underlying medical conditions, or lifestyle factors such as obesity or excessive alcohol consumption.
Gynecomastia surgery typically involves the following steps:
Consultation: The initial step is to consult with a plastic surgeon who specializes in gynecomastia surgery. During this consultation, Dr. Kim will evaluate your condition, discuss your goals and expectations, and explain the surgical options available.
Anesthesia: Gynecomastia surgery can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. The choice of anesthesia depends on the complexity of the procedure and the surgeon’s recommendation.
Incision Placement: Dr. Kim will determine the appropriate incision pattern based on the severity of gynecomastia and the desired outcome. Commonly used incision patterns include periareolar (around the edge of the areola), vertical, or horizontal incisions.
Tissue Removal: Dr. Kim will then remove excess breast tissue, fat, and, if necessary, excess skin. The specific technique used may vary depending on the individual case. Liposuction may also be performed to remove excess fat deposits.
Contouring and Closure: After removing the excess tissue, Dr. Kim will sculpt and contour the remaining chest tissue to create a more masculine appearance. The incisions are then closed using sutures, and the surgical area is dressed with bandages or a compression garment to support the healing process.
Recovery and Follow-up: After the surgery, you will be given specific instructions for post-operative care, including wearing a compression garment, avoiding strenuous activities, and taking prescribed medications. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your healing progress.
What causes enlarged male breasts?
The most common culprits are hormonal imbalance during puberty or post-weight changes. Some medications too can stimulate excess glandular or fatty tissue development over time.
Can this be corrected without surgery?
Mild cases may improve through lifestyle shifts like diet, exercise and monitoring prescriptions. However, moderate to severe enlargement often requires liposuction or excision by experienced hands for thorough, symmetrical correction.
How long is the recovery process?
Most patients return to sedentary work within a week, though strenuous activities may take 2-4 weeks to safely resume. Healing time frames can vary, so Dr. Kim ensures each step of your individual recovery journey.
What should I expect from a consultation?
Dr. Kim performs a comprehensive exam and discusses custom treatment plans so you feel fully informed and prepared prior to deciding next steps. Addressing questions or concerns is his priority for attaining clarity empowering confident decisions aligned with your wellness priorities.
