What is Chest Gland Removal Surgery?
Chest gland removal, also known as male mastectomy or gynecomastia surgery, is a breast reduction procedure.
It involves the removal of excess breast tissue, primarily to create a flatter and more masculine chest contour. It is an effective solution for men dealing with gynecomastia, a condition characterized by enlarged breast tissue, which can affect men of various ages and body types.
Causes of Gynecomastia
Before exploring the specifics of chest gland removal surgery, it’s crucial to understand the potential causes of gynecomastia. Some common factors include:
- Hormonal imbalances: An imbalance between estrogen (female hormone) and testosterone (male hormone) can cause breast tissue to grow excessively.
- Medications: Certain medications like anti-androgens, anabolic steroids, and antidepressants can contribute to gynecomastia.
- Health conditions: Issues such as liver disease, kidney failure, and tumors might cause hormone production issues and lead to enlarged breasts.
- Lifestyle factors: Excessive alcohol consumption, illegal drugs, and extreme weight gain can also play a role in developing gynecomastia.
The Chest Gland Removal Process
At the Solomon Cosmetic Center, the chest gland removal process typically involves removing excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin from around the nipple area.
Before the surgery, patients undergo tumescent anesthesia and intravenous sedation, so they do not experience discomfort. Once under anesthesia, Dr. Solomon will make a small incision in either the armpit for liposuction and the use of the Vaser for tightening and another small incision in the zone between the areola and skin from 3 O’clock to 9 O’clock to remove the glandular tissue.
Afterward, the doctor will carefully suture the incision site to minimize scarring. Liposuction may also remove additional fat deposits around the muscle wall.
He can close the incision with dissolvable stitches, or surgical tape and place drains near it to help reduce swelling and allow fluid release during recovery. Within days of your gynecomastia surgery, you should begin noticing improved results, with swelling gradually diminishing as you heal.
To ensure proper healing, you must follow Dr. Solomon’s instructions closely during post-operative care, including taking medications if prescribed by your doctor and attending all recommended follow-up appointments after your surgery date.
Recovery and Results
The recovery period for chest gland removal surgery is typically around 1-2 weeks, depending on the extent of the surgery and individual healing rates. Some bruising and swelling are expected, but this will gradually subside.
Following post-operative care instructions from our medical team for optimal healing and results is essential.
