What are Gynecomastia Causes?
Gynecomastia is basically the growth of breast tissue in men and boys. It typically happens during periods of hormone fluctuations, like during puberty. Once these hormonal surges decrease, the gynecomastia usually resolves. But sometimes the breast tissue remains, and the boy is left with an embarrassing problem.
We are also seeing more and more cases of men developing gynecomastia after using steroids and testosterone. Unfortunately, using such substances without proper knowledge of their use can lead to the hormonal surges that cause gynecomastia.
Gynecomastia treatment effectively seeks to remove the breast tissue, returning a more masculine flat chest to the patient. The Gynecomastia Surgery involves Vaser Liposuction and/or a small curved incision at the border of the nipple. The breast tissue lies directly under the nipple and can be destroyed with Vaser Liposuction. Once the nipple is elevated, the breast tissue can easily visualized and removed from the body. The nipple is then sutured closed and scarring is minimal.
How Much Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost?
Gynecomastia surgery should be performed while awake under local anesthesia. This is the safest, most cost effective method to treat gynecomastia. Tumescent local anesthesia is first instilled into the breast tissue which will give numbness for more than eight hours. With some oral and/or IV sedation to relax you, the gynecomastia surgery can be performed while you are awake and watching!
By eliminating the risk and cost of general anesthesia and going under, gynecomastia surgery using local anesthesia is very affordable. The gynecomastia surgery cost also depends on the need for liposuction. If there is a significant amount of fat surrounding the breast tissue, liposuction may be necessary to achieve the flattest chest possible. So adding liposuction the gynecomastia surgery will increase the cost. Check out some of our Plastic Surgery prices at Beleza Medspa.
