Serving Melbourne and surrounding areas, our gynaecomastia procedures are performed by Mr. Stephen Salerno. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out more information about gynaecomastia surgery.
What is Gynaecomastia?
Gynaecomastia is a condition that affects the male breasts, causing the breast tissue to become enlarged or swollen. It can affect one or both breasts and often affects half of adolescent boys and one third of older men, according to Andrology Australia. Some men choose to have their male breasts changed with surgical intervention such as gynaecomastia surgery.
How is Gynaecomastia Surgery Performed?
Depending on your individual condition, excess glandular tissue and/or fat may be removed from the area via liposuction or excision. Mr. Salerno understands the contours of the male body and can restore a flatter appearance that aligns with your aesthetic goals. The nipples may also be positioned to maintain a normal-looking appearance. Prior to your surgery, our medical team will discuss your surgical options, what you can expect, and more.
Am I a Good Candidate for Gynaecomastia Surgery?
Male breasts can be caused by a variety of factors, and at REAL Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, we will evaluate your individual condition to determine if there is an underlying medical condition that should be treated in order to help reverse this condition. Factors such as your aesthetic goals, preferences, overall health, and other factors may be considered as well. The best way to determine if your male breasts qualify for surgery is to schedule a consultation with Mr. Salerno and our medical team at our location in Melbourne.
What is the Recovery Like?
The healing process can vary for every individual, but some mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort may be experienced as the chest contours heal. Mr. Salerno and our medical team will discuss how long you should take off from work and when you should be able to return to normal activities. Once the healing process is complete, most patients are able to fully enjoy improved chest contours.
