To remove breast tissue using surgical excision, Dr. DeLange makes a well-concealed incision, usually around the areola (the darker circle of skin surrounding the nipple). Through this incision, he removes any excess fat using liposuction to create a smooth contour. The procedure is tailored to meet each patient's unique needs, ensuring that they achieve the desired aesthetic results.
You Deserve These Results
Gynecomastia Surgery provides permanent results as long as the patient maintains a healthy and stable weight. However, natural signs of aging will continue to affect the treated area. It is essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, to ensure the longevity of the results. Your surgeon will provide you with personalized advice on how to maintain your new chest shape and appearance.
To facilitate recovery patients should wear their compression garment, rest and avoid significant upper body movement for at least three days after the surgery. Most patients can return to work within seven to ten days and resume low-impact exercise in two to three weeks. Your doctor will provide specific recovery instructions and any prescribed medication during pre-operative appointments.
Results from Gynecomastia Surgery are typically visible three months after surgery once the swelling has subsided. However, it may take six to twelve months for the skin to tighten and conform to the new chest shape. Therefore, your surgeon will monitor your progress during follow-up appointments to ensure you achieve the desired outcome.
Gynecomastia surgery is typically classified as a cosmetic procedure and is not typically covered by medical insurance. However, at Estética Institute, we offer a range of payment and financing options to make the process as convenient and accessible as possible for our patients. Our team can work with you to determine the best payment plan to suit your needs and budget, ensuring you can achieve the desired results without an unnecessary financial burden.
At Estética Institute, our experienced surgeons prioritize minimizing scarring during gynecomastia surgery. The type of surgery required will depend on the underlying cause of your gynecomastia. In some cases, liposuction alone may be sufficient, resulting in minimal scarring. However, if your gynecomastia is caused by an enlargement of the breast gland beneath the nipple, Dr. DeLange may need to perform surgical reduction, which requires larger incisions. Despite the need for larger incisions, scarring is kept to a minimum because Dr. DeLange places incisions along the natural contour lines of your body. This technique ensures that scarring is discreet and blends seamlessly into your body's natural contours. Our surgeons' expertise and attention to detail ensure that you achieve optimal results with minimal scarring.
