The appearance of fatty tissue in the chest can cause men to feel self-conscious about their appearance. With gynecomastia surgery at Eko Plastic Surgery, patients can eliminate fat and excess breast tissue to achieve a sculpted appearance. We offer this and other cosmetic surgery services to the residents of Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, CA and surrounding areas.
Gynecomastia is a condition common in men that is characterized by a build-up of fatty tissue in the chest area. In many cases, this condition is resistant to diet and exercise. Gynecomastia surgery, also called male breast reduction, is a procedure that removes excess fat and tissue in the chest to create a more sculpted, masculine appearance. Gynecomastia surgery may be necessary for patients who have struggled with gynecomastia for a few years or longer.
The cost of your gynecomastia surgery at Eko Plastic Surgery will vary depending on the treatment plan that we develop for you. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and treatment needs in order to determine the treatment approach that will be ideal for you. For this reason, we will not be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment until you have the chance to come in and discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Eko.
During gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Eko will make small incisions around the nipples, where they will be well-concealed. Then, we will remove breast tissue to create the desired results. If fat deposits are an issue, we may use liposuction to further sculpt the chest. Gynecomastia surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis.
After surgery, most patients will experience swelling and discomfort that can last up to a week or two. During this time, patients may need to take about a week off of work to rest and heal. After this period, patients will need to limit exercise and other strenuous activities for approximately one month.
Breast tissue and fat is removed from the chest, so patients can enjoy permanent results from gynecomastia surgery. The results are immediate, but its full effects are usually apparent within several months. However, it is important to note that weight gain can impact the results from your surgery. We encourage patients to maintain healthy diet and exercise habits in order to maintain their results.
