Gynecomastia Surgery & Recovery – Fayetteville, Atlanta, GA
Depending upon the shape of your breasts, our Plastic Surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery may recommend either Liposuction, Liposuction with the Direct Surgical Removal of the breast tissue, or Excision of the Breast Tissue and Skin with a free nipple graft. If you are an adult and your breast mound is mostly fat in consistency with minimal excess skin, then your breast mound can be reduced with Liposuction using small puncture sites. If you are an adolescent and the breast mound is dense fibroglandular breast tissue, then our Plastic Surgeons will recommend Direct Surgical Removal of the central breast tissue and Liposuction of the surrounding fat tissue. If your breast mound is large and has droop, then we will recommend Excision of the Excess Skin and Breast Tissue with free nipple graft that places the nipple back into a more natural anatomical position.
We perform the surgery in Atlanta at our State-Licensed, Certified Surgi-Center. Our patients are put under local anesthesia with an IV sedation or general anesthesia. You will spend 30–60 minutes in our recovery room before your discharge home.
The procedure causes minimal discomfort, but you will require some TLC at home. You are usually able to return to your normal daily activities in one week and will be ready for post-op pictures in 6 weeks.
Surgical correction of Gynecomastia is commonly combined with with other body contouring procedures to improve your overall physique. Combining procedures saves you money and recuperation time.
