Though it goes away by itself in most patients considerable amount of severe emotional and psychological stress can be there.

Do I need to get something done for my gynecomastia?

Most of the gynecomastia patients will find it going by itself over a period of few months hence not all gynecomastia need to be operated.

How is the procedure done?

Gynecomastia is treated by a combination of liposuction (Suction assisted or ultrasound assisted) and excision procedures. The aim of surgery is restoration of a normal male chest shape while minimizing scars of surgery and protecting the nipples. The choice of using liposuction alone or with excision requires a good clinical judgement of a Plastic surgeon. Most newbs will not be able to assess your need and may treat you inadequately resulting in severe shape deformity or cosmetically unpleasing result. Ultrasound assisted liposuction is much better at removing gynecomastia. Do ask your treating doctor to offer you Ultrasound assisted surgery.

What is the downtime with procedure?
