What is Gynecomastia Treatment?
“Man boobs”, “gyno”, “moobs”, and “puffy nipples” are some of the more common descriptions of gynecomastia. It is a condition where men have enlarged breasts that can result from having excess skin, fat, or glandular tissue. Men will complain of having a solid, rubbery like mass underneath the nipple area causing a puffy look. This can be caused by genetics, steroid use, or other factors. Gynecomastia can cause men to be self-conscious about the appearance and size of their breasts.

HOW IS GYNECOMASTIA TREATMENT PERFORMED?
Dr. Pisarski uses a combination of treatments to address gynecomastia. Most surgeries begin with Smartlipo (laser-assisted liposuction) and power assisted liposuction to melt the fat and begin to sculpt and define the male chest. This is carried out through tiny poke hole incisions located in the armpit and in the areolar. Next any remaining glandular (breast) tissue is removed through a small incision under the nipple in the areolar. It is done under local anesthesia right in the office. The scars are typically not noticeable and blend into the pigmented area of the areola.
In men that have stretched, sagging skin around the breast area, surgical excision of the skin may be needed to achieve the best results. Dr. Pisarski will discuss which approach is best for you during your consultation.

WHAT IS RECOVERY LIKE AFTER GYNECOMASTIA TREATMENT?
Following gynecomastia surgery, mild bruising and swelling are expected side effects. You can return home after the procedure is done with some limitations. You will be able to return to work after around a week, drive after around a few days, and resume physical exercise after two to four weeks.
HOW LONG WILL MY GYNECOMASTIA TREATMENT RESULTS LAST?
Gynecomastia surgery results can last up to a lifetime. If the condition is caused by genetic factors, there is a small chance that it can reoccur—but having a solid exercise and nutrition regimen will greatly reduce this chance. We recommend having a healthy lifestyle to improve the quality of your life regardless.
