What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is the medical term for enlarged male breasts that can result in a feminine chest due to abnormally growing breast tissue. Many times, gynecomastia is caused by an unknown hormonal problem or by certain drugs, steroids, obesity, or genetics. Men with this issue often feel frustrated and anxious when their chest is exposed, such as by the pool or in the gym. Oklahoma City, OK plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan performs cosmetic breast treatment for men who suffer from gynecomastia. This cosmetic treatment has very high success rates and is one of the more common cosmetic procedures for men.

Can I Get Gynecomastia Surgery?
If you have embarrassing, excess breast tissue that won't go away through a healthy lifestyle or exercise and diet, you may benefit from male breast reduction surgery at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics. Teenagers can also benefit from gynecomastia surgery; however, it's important to note that a secondary procedure may be needed during adulthood if new breast tissue continues. In your initial consultation with plastic surgeon Dr. Sawan, treatment considerations will be given, including the possibility of moving forward with surgery to correct the condition.
How is Gynecomastia Surgery Performed?
To begin your gynecomastia surgery, you will be put under general anesthesia, then liposuction will be used as a way to reduce excess fat tissue from the chest wall. From there, any loose or wrinkled skin will be removed to produce a tighter appearance. The nipple area and surrounding areola will be surgically reshaped and placed into a proper position. For most men, this technique requires a small incision in proximity to where the glandular tissue has formed. After the pockets of fat and excess skin have been removed, Dr. Sawan will pull together the remaining skin and create a slimmer look on your chest.
What Can I Expect After My Gynecomastia Surgery?
As your gynecomastia treatment is finished, your chest will be secured with a medical garment to help reduce bruising and swelling. In advanced cases where a reconstructive technique was used, a small tube for draining may be properly positioned to assist with fluid, in which Dr. Sawan will discuss with you during your consultation. Your results will be visible almost immediately. The incisions made during treatment take time to heal, and scarring is usually barely visible. However, it's important to make sure you follow Dr. Sawan's at-home care instructions to help with the healing process. Dr. Sawan will give you instructions on when it is safe to incorporate exercise and weight training, which will complement the end results. After you're healing process, you will be left with an enhanced chest and sleek figure.
