No amount of exercise will correct this condition. In fact, strenuous exercise may further emphasize gynecomastia as the pectoral muscles become more developed and push the breast tissue forward. The only permanent solution for gynecomastia is breast reduction surgery. Dr. Joshua Lampert, a Miami-based board-certified plastic surgeon, has performed gynecomastia treatment for many men, helping them regain their masculine physique and a renewed sense of self-confidence.

Information on Gynecomastia Surgery

It is estimated that 30% of the male population is affected by gynecomastia. This condition can begin at the onset of puberty or can occur well into adulthood.
The causes are varied and can include:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Heredity or chromosomal abnormalities
  • Reactions to different medications
  • Low testosterone levels
  • Weight gain or weight loss
  • Hypothyroidism

Candidates for Male Breast Reduction Surgery

The best candidates for gynecomastia treatment in Miami are adult men in good health who have no underlying medical conditions. If the cause of the breast enlargement is excess fatty tissue caused by obesity, weight loss should be stable before surgery. If more weight is lost after surgery, the breast can droop further. Performing breast reduction after weight loss has stabilized can help avoid the necessity of a repeat revision surgery.

If gynecomastia has developed at the onset of puberty, surgery should be postponed until after further discussion with a pediatrician. Males generally continue to grow until approximately age 18. Some gynecomastia cases may resolve or improve after puberty or with further growth. Generally speaking, one can look at the height of the parents compared to the child and get a ballpark idea of how much further growth is expected.

For further information, X-rays of the hands can be obtained to help see how close the patient is to skeletal maturity. Patients under 18 suffering from gynecomastia should be counseled very carefully with enough time spent to fully discuss risks, benefits, and options. Patients and their parents should have ample time to discuss the physical and psychological benefits of surgery and the emotional maturity of the individual.

Breast Reduction Methods in Males

Breast reduction involves the removal of excess fat as well as breast tissue. Excess skin, as well as the ratio of breast tissue to fat, will differ from patient to patient.

The surgical technique used will vary and be tailored to each patient’s needs. Excess fat will be either surgically removed or removed using the tumescent liposuction method, followed by the removal of the right amount of breast tissue.

One of the most crucial decisions that the plastic surgeon must make is how much tissue to remove. This is where the skill and aesthetic eye of the plastic surgeon proves itself. Dr. Lampert feels that plastic surgery is as much of an art form as it is a technical procedure. He prides himself on creating beautiful and natural results, and he pays meticulous attention to every detail. This helps ensure that the smoothest transitions are being created, leaving no unsightly depressions or ridges.

Incisions are carefully placed to minimize scarring. For some patients, only a small incision is made at the perimeter of the areola margin or under the crease. For patients with significant hanging breasts or skin, scars may be required around the entire areola and further along the breast folds. These scars typically heal very well and can be virtually undetectable once the healing process matures.

Recovering from Gynecomastia Surgery

Most patients can return to light activity a week following gynecomastia surgery in Miami. Strenuous activities and heavy lifting will need to be postponed until initial healing is complete. There will be some swelling and bruising, which will mostly resolve in approximately 2 weeks. While the surgical site is healing, it may appear lumpy and uneven, but this typically resolves as healing progresses.

Dr. Lampert provides full support throughout the surgery and the healing process so that any questions or concerns are fully resolved. Dr. Lampert is always available to his patients, which provides an added layer of security. His philosophy is to provide superior service and better results to a smaller number of patients rather than relying on volume and speed.
