Gynecomastia

A man's chest is often a source of pride. However, for men with Gynecomastia, it is a source of embarrassment. Gynecomastia is a common medical condition in which a male's breasts are abnormally large. The condition is often associated with puberty, however, in about 90% of these boys, the symptoms will disappear spontaneously. In patients with Gynecomastia, the breasts remain large and a constant source of personal shame.

Although there are some potential causes of gynecomastia such as medications or particular medical conditions, most often the cause remains unknown. For these patients, surgery is often the best option to treat their condition.

Dr. DeLuca can help to restore a more masculine contour to your chest. He performs this corrective surgery in one of two ways, depending on the extent of the condition. In some cases, only liposuction of the chest is needed. This depends on the amount of breast tissue involvement. In more extensive cases, Dr. DeLuca combines chest liposuction with surgical removal of excess breast tissue. In this case, he makes a small incision just under the areola and removes the excess tissue.

With this procedure, Dr. DeLuca makes the smallest possible incision to ensure minimal scarring. As with most of his surgical procedures, the stitches may be below the skin and dissolvable.

Dr. DeLuca recommends allowing one week for recovery, depending on each patient's level of activity. If a patient has a job that requires heavy lifting, Dr. DeLuca recommends 1-2 weeks off work.

The effects of gynecomastia on a man's psyche can be devastating. He may not want to undress in the shower, show his chest in public and resort to wearing large, baggy shirts. Having the surgery to correct the condition can result in an extraordinary reversal of low self-esteem, leading to increased self-confidence and a dramatic improvement in body image. Specializing in breast and body contouring, Dr. DeLuca offers the experience you demand with the individual and artistic approach you expect to achieve the look you want.
