Gynecomastia Surgery in Spring Valley & Las Vegas
What Male Breast Surgery Can Do
At times, pubescent boys and men can develop breast tissue. This obviously can become somewhat disconcerting to the patient and can become the source of ridicule and embarrassment. At times this is due to prescription medication or to some transient hormone imbalance, which can produce a development of breast tissue, which not always regresses when the problem medicine is removed.
Treating Gynecomastia: The majority of the time, a simple surgical procedure of either a direct excision or a combination of one with a liposuction can alleviate this problem. The procedure can be done under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation if the area is smaller.
Typical recovery time involves 2 weeks of light duty, with an increase during the third and fourth week until full activity is resumed in one month. The removal is permanent unless the offending problem resurfaces.
