Gynecomastia Plastic Surgery

Do you suffer from an excess of breast tissue? Gynecomastia is an abnormal growth and enlargement of the breasts that can sometimes cause tenderness or a nagging pain. In males, this unsightly effect can be damaging to their self-image and overall confidence.

What is the goal of Gynecomastia surgery?

To refine the chest area and give it a firmer, toned, and traditionally masculine appearance.

Dr. Washington’s goal for you is to help give you a natural and proportionate appearance that will give you a commanding sense of confidence.


Is Gynecomastia surgery right for you?

No amount of exercise or weight loss can usually reduce the breast tissue enlargement of gynecomastia. So, if you are seeking a remedy to this problem, then gynecomastia surgery is for you.

About Gynecomastia surgery

It is important to be properly diagnosed, as there are a number of conditions that relate to, and can have similar appearance to gynecomastia. Dr. Washington will obtain a thorough history and examination to determine whether you are a better candidate for liposuction, excision, or a combination of both. Liposuction removes fatty tissue via a small tube that is inserted into a tiny incision. Excision requires the use of a periareolar incision to cut out and remove excess glandular tissue. This method does leave the potential for scarring. Beyond deciding which procedure is best for you, it is important to also rule out any other possible diagnosis, such as cancer, a cyst, or benign tumor, by running several tests.


What should I expect after Gynecomastia surgery?

You will be wrapped with bandages to compress the surgical areas to minimize swelling. You will be prescribed pain medication to alleviate any pain and discharged home the same day. On some occasions, a drain may be necessary to drain the incision to prevent fluid accumulation under the skin. Complications from surgery are rare, and you can expect to be back in school or work 1-2 weeks after surgery, and return to your regular routine after 4-6 weeks.
