Surgery for Gynecomastia Sydney NSW

Gynaecomastia is a condition that causes an abnormal growth of tissue on the male chest. This excess glandular tissue can make the chest appear large or swollen and can create the appearance of male breasts. Surgical correction can be a great option to restore a more toned and refined appearance to the male chest.

Dr Laniewski performs male breast reduction surgery, also called gynaecomastia correction, with a personalised and patient-centred approach. Book your consultation to receive one-on-one advice and a treatment plan that meets your unique needs and aesthetic goals.

What is Gynecomastia surgery?

Surgery for gynecomastia is usually a cosmetic procedure. It is designed to address the appearance of male breasts, which occurs due to a condition called gynecomastia. This condition is common in men and can be a result of hormone levels, genetics, and weight fluctuations, as well as other factors. It often develops during male puberty, due to changes in hormones, and can sometimes endure into adulthood.

Male breast reduction, or gynaecomastia correction surgery, can involve several surgical techniques to sculpt a more refined-looking chest. The procedure aims to remove excess fat tissue from the chest via surgical incisions, liposuction, or both. This results in a more toned and flatter appearance.

How it works

The steps of your procedure will be highly personalised to achieve the best possible results. The details of the procedure can be discussed with Dr Laniewski during your consultation to ensure they align with your desired outcomes.

Gynaecomastia correction may involve surgical excision of the excess breast tissue via small incisions. Incisions are typically made around the areola, and the unwanted glandular tissue is removed. Additionally, some procedures may require the use of liposuction to enhance results, which involves suctioning the fat from the body. A cannula is inserted beneath the skin to break up the fat before the excess glandular tissue is suctioned from the area.

Dr Laniewski uses the best practices to ensure patients are comfortable throughout the procedure and satisfied with the results.

Good candidates

Gynaecomastia surgery is not designed to aid weight loss, which means good candidates are men who are healthy and have maintained a healthy and stable weight. If you are a male with concerns about excess breast tissue, despite a healthy lifestyle, gynaecomastia surgery can be the best option to restore a flatter, more masculine appearance.

However, the procedure may not be the best option for everyone, and for this reason, you will need to consult with a qualified surgeon. An in-person consultation with Dr Laniewski in Sydney or one of our other popular locations is the best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for gynecomastia surgery. He will assess your condition and medical history, and ask about your goals, in order to develop a suitable surgical plan. Contact us today to discuss whether the procedure may be an option for you.

Cost of Gynecomastia surgery

The costs of cosmetic procedures such as male breast reduction are dependent on a number of factors. The details of your procedure, the condition of the treated area, and your aesthetic goals will influence costs, as well as hospital and anaesthesia fees. In some cases, Medicare rebates may be available for patients whose surgery is considered medically required. You can discuss these factors with Dr Laniewski prior to your surgery in order to be fully informed and prepared.

Male breast reduction aftercare

Recovery speeds for gynaecomastia surgery vary depending on the patient’s general health and surgery details. However, most men feel comfortable enough to return to work within one week.

After their procedure, patients can expect to have some bruising, swelling, and numbness at the surgical sites. This is normal and should subside gradually as the areas heal. You will be given aftercare instructions to support your recovery, minimise risks, and encourage the best possible outcomes. These may include wearing a compression garment, avoiding strenuous activities and exercise, taking prescribed pain medication, and avoiding smoking. It is also advisable to stay hydrated and eat a healthy and balanced diet throughout your recovery.

Frequently asked questions

What causes gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is caused by a hormonal imbalance. The condition may arise at any age but most commonly develops during puberty. Although there is no definite known cause, certain drugs, medical conditions, natural changes in hormone production, and weight fluctuations in weight are suspected influences.

Can the procedure aid weight loss?

No, gynecomastia surgery is not designed to lower a person’s BMI or weight. It is ideal for men who are already at a healthy weight but are concerned about localised fatty tissue in the chest area.

What are the possible risks and complications?

We can discuss the potential complications during your male breast reduction consultation so that you are fully informed. These risks can include bleeding, infection, asymmetrical or unsatisfactory results, changes in nipple sensation, prolonged healing, fat necrosis, and scarring. In rare cases, correction surgery may be required to correct complications.

How can I reduce my risks?

The best way to minimise the associated risks is to adhere to the recovery and preparation instructions given by your gynecomastia surgeon. Additionally, selecting a highly qualified surgeon, such as Dr Laniewski, is the ideal option for undergoing a procedure with minimal risk.
