Gynecomastia Treatment in Troy

Gynecomastia Treatment in Troy

Gynecomastia is a fairly common condition that causes men to develop excess breast tissue. On top of the physical discomfort associated with this condition, men may also experience feelings of shame and low self-esteem.

Gynecomastia reduction is designed to strategically remove unwanted breast tissue, helping our male patients be comfortable and confident in their bodies. For more information about gynecomastia treatment in Troy, connect with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Danielle DeLuca-Pytell.

What Is Gynecomastia Reduction Surgery?

Gynecomastia reduction is a surgical procedure that reduces excess breast tissue mass in men. Also known as a reduction mammoplasty, this surgery safely and strategically removes unwanted breast skin, fat, and tissue.

While Dr. DeLuca-Pytell performs breast reduction surgery for all genders, male breast reduction differs slightly from female breast reduction. With male breast reduction surgery, excess breast tissue and skin should be removed in a way that makes the body look and feel more masculine. We will help you design the best and safest surgical strategy to help you achieve total comfort and satisfaction with your body and overall appearance. Above all else, we prioritize your safety and wellness.

Do I Need Gynecomastia Reduction Surgery?

Some cases of gynecomastia, particularly those emerging as young boys go through puberty, resolve over time. However, other cases continue over the course of a man’s life and warrant medical intervention. Surgical treatment could be life-changing for gynecomastia patients in Troy who experience:

  • Excess, unwanted breast tissue
  • Feelings of shame, low self-confidence, and low self-esteem
  • Pain and inability to complete physical activities
  • Discomfort wearing certain clothes
  • Discomfort in social and romantic situations

If you experience these issues or others related to the appearance of your chest, schedule your appointment for male breast reduction surgery with Dr. DeLuca-Pytell.

Your Gynecomastia Reduction Procedure

Prior to your gynecomastia reduction, our team provides personalized directions to ensure you feel prepared for the procedure and recovery process. The gynecomastia reduction surgical strategy is customized for your unique needs but typically involves Dr. DeLuca-Pytell making precise incisions in the breast tissue to remove excess tissue, skin, and fat. The ultimate goal is to masculinize the appearance of your chest, and we do our best to ensure incisions are carefully concealed within the chest tissue.

Before your procedure, arrange to have a ride home from a trusted friend or family member. Due to the anesthesia, you will not be able to drive following your surgery. If you have further questions about what to expect from your gynecomastia treatment, do not hesitate to call our Troy office.

Recovering From Your Gynecomastia Reduction

For the first few weeks following your gynecomastia treatment, we recommend avoiding lifting your arms or working out your chest muscles. Rest and relaxation are key to ensuring a smooth healing process. You should avoid going to the gym or partaking in exercise of any kind.

We will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your recovery and progress. When you have recovered, you can maintain your results by caring for your body with a healthy diet and lifestyle.
