The surgical method of gynecomastia is different depending on the types of gynecomastia. Fibro glandular gynecomastia surgery needs to completely eliminate the breast tissue while not removing the fat tissue which is beneath the breast tissue. Removal of fat tissue can lead to skin dent after the surgery.
The main part of pseudogynecomastia surgery is liposuction. Fat is removed according to the fatty tissue and the seed of breast tissue which is located right below the nipple is also removed.
Both fibro glandular gynecomastia and pseudogynecomastia surgery must remove breast tissue.
In gynecomastia, incision is very important because of the surgical-scar after the operation. The best way to hide the surgical scar is to incise beneath the areola and perform the surgery.
The incision is made on the border of the areola and skin so that surgical-scar is nearly invisible.
As time passes by, the trace of incision disappears.
The cause of gynecomastia recurrence is unremoved breast tissue. Gynecomastia surgery is fairly simple surgery. However, if the surgeon is unexperienced, after the surgery, patient can have problems with the breast shape and the experience recurrence due to the breast tissue that hasn’t been completely removed.
Above image shows the contrast of Dam So Yu Hospital’s incision and the incision of the previous hospital.
Surgical incision line can differ from doctor to doctor. However, if the incision is made on the upper area, this leads the nipple below to fold and leave surgical-scar after the surgery. Also, previous hospital failed to remove breast tissue wholly.
To prevent recurrence, breast tissue needs to be fully eliminated. In Gynecomastia surgery, breast tissue is removed and the surrounding fat is suctioned. The discharge from the wound after the surgery is very unlikely to happen. Also, on the day of surgery, patient can discharge and further sterilization is not necessary. Patient is instructed to visit hospital a month after the surgery to check the progress of the surgery and shape of their breast. Gynecomastia surgery is a very simple surgery but it can cause aesthetic problems so the surgery area needs to be treated with caution.
