How is Gynecomastia Procedure performed?
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. Most gynecomastia procedures are performed using general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia
The incision and removal
When the gynecomastia is primarily caused by excess fatty tissue rather than skin or glandular tissue, liposuction may be option. If you are undergoing liposuction, only a few small incisions may be necessary to insert the cannula.
Excisions involving glandular tissue can necessitate larger incisions, which are typically made along the areola or natural skin creases where they will be less noticeable as they heal. Thin sections are made in inconspicuous places with a cosmetic suture in order to minimize the scars visible after surgery. During an excision, the excess glandular tissue and skin are removed surgically. Your nipple and areola may also be resized or repositioned to ensure the look you want.
Types of incision
Closing the incisions and completion of operation
Cuts are closed with layered and thin sutures, skin glue or surgical tape to close the skin. Over time the incision and suture lines will fade.
