MALE BREAST REDUCTION / GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY IN SCOTTSDALE
Male Gynecomastia (male breast enlargement) is a condition that occurs in men due hormonal changes, weight gain, the use of certain drugs, heredity, or other medical conditions. Male breast reduction surgery, or gynecomastia surgery, can be performed by Dr. Shaw in Scottsdale to restore both physical and mental well being.
HOW IS GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY PERFORMED?
Dr. Shaw uses ultrasonic liposuction, direct surgical excision of excess breast tissue or a combination of both depending on the severity of the gynecomastia. A small incision is placed along the bottom edge of the areola followed by careful excision of the dense breast tissue. The surgery is usually done under general anesthesia in an outpatient facility. Usually, all sutures are placed beneath the skin surface and do not require removal.
