Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction, is the most effective solution for the treatment of the dreaded “man boobs.” With gynecomastia surgery at Plastic Surgery Consultants, men can achieve a lean, masculine figure. We offer this treatment to residents of Columbia, Lexington, and the neighboring areas of South Carolina.
What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, can affect men of all ages, causing physical discomfort as well as self-consciousness. To treat this condition, Dr. Wassermann essentially performs a male breast reduction. By removing excess glandular and fatty tissue, patients can achieve a flatter, firmer, and more masculine chest wall.
How is Gynecomastia Surgery Performed?
Gynecomastia surgery is performed with the aid of anesthesia to ensure that each patient remains entirely comfortable during their procedure. Various techniques may be utilized to achieve the best results based on each patient’s unique anatomy. First, small incisions are made on either side of the chest. Then, liposuction, excision techniques, or a combination of both will be used to remove fatty tissue from the chest. Afterwards, the incisions are closed and treatment is complete. Gynecomastia surgery can take up to two hours, depending on the desired results.
What is Recovery Like Following Gynecomastia Surgery?
Most gynecomastia patients at our center enjoy a rapid recovery with minimal scarring and are able to return to work in one to two weeks.
How Much Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost?
The cost of your gynecomastia surgery will vary depending on your specific treatment goals. To determine the exact cost of treatment, we invite you to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Wassermann. During your consultation, you will work with Dr. Wassermann to develop a personalized treatment plan that will satisfy your unique cosmetic goals. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment.
