A number of women opt for plastic surgeries to enhance and improve their facial and body looks. However, the zone of cosmetic treatments is not reserved just for women. With increasing consciousness in males about their looks and appearance, plastic surgery has also been tailored for their needs. Dr. George Pope, MD, FACS at Pope Plastic Surgery has given positive life changing experiences to men through gynecomastia treatments.
Gynecomastia is a medical problem in which there is an excessive growth of breast tissue in men. The primary cause of Gynecomastia is attributed to a hormonal unevenness in which estrogen levels become too high and level of testosterone decreases. Such hormonal imbalance may stem from a wide variety of factors – natural and unnatural (use of certain drugs). This condition may affect men of any age though it is more prominent in males who are also affected by obesity.
During the pre surgery consultation with the plastic surgeon, the candidate must candidly disclose his medical history and any prescribed & non-prescribed drugs that he used. To prepare for the surgery, intake of blood thinning medicines like aspirin must be stopped at least a week before the procedure. Smoking must be given up to ensure the best results of the treatment.
Gynecomastia in Pope Plastic Surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and an intravenous sedation is given before the surgery. Dr. George Pope may use liposuction techniques if the main cause of gynecomastia is obesity or excess fatty tissues. Liposuction cannula is inserted through a small incision to loosen and pull excess fat through vacuum suction. Excision techniques are used if a glandular breast tissue or excess skin must be removed. Excision is also essential if the areola is to be reduced or the nipple is to be repositioned for a more natural male contour.
A gynecomastia surgery usually takes less than 3 hours and the patient may return to normal activities after 7-10 days of the treatment. A well chiseled, masculine chest is the direct result of gynecomastia surgery at Pope Plastic Surgery.
