This is a condition of enlarged breasts in men that can occur at any age. Gynecomastia surgery and liposuction treat this problem.

Usually Gynecomastia contains both glandular tissue and fat. Occasionally, excess skin occurs.

What are the causes?

  • hormonal changes
  • obesity
  • certain drugs such as steroids
  • age
  • heredity

 Gynecomastia Procedure

Gynecomastia usually contains both glandular tissue and fat. Because of this, the treatment usually requires both surgery and liposuction. Occasionally surgery also removes excess skin. This procedure is performed in hospital under a general anaesthetic.

Liposuction alone can treat cases caused only by fat. This is only a minority of gynecomastia patients. This procedure is performed under twilight sedation at our practice facility.

How long is the recovery period?

Immediately following the procedure you will be fitted with a garment in recovery by the nurse. This helps to reduce swelling and you should wear it for 3 weeks.

If you have a large gland removed, Dr Szalay might place a drain which is removed after 24 to 48 hours.

It is important for you to see Dr Szalay at his Spring Hill office the day following the procedure so he can check on your progress.

You can return to work after 3 days but you need to avoid exercise for 3 weeks in order to minimise the risk of bleeding.

It will take 3 months for the swelling to subside following the procedure so it is best to wait until then to judge your results.

Dr Szalay will discuss what to expect during your recovery as part of your consultation and we will provide you with detailed pre and post operative instructions.

A detailed list of pre and post operative instructions is here.
