Located in Aventura, Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified plastic surgeon, offers male breast reduction surgery to treat gynecomastia for men who live in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida.
Gynecomastia results from an imbalance in hormones that causes breast growth in men. Male breast reduction surgery can help these men achieve flatter, firmer chests and also enhances the natural contours. The benefits of this procedure are higher self-esteem and confidence, as well as interpersonal relationship improvements. Furthermore, since recovery only takes around two weeks, men who receive male breast reduction surgery won’t need to spend much time away from work or other activities.
The procedure is often performed under general anesthesia, but in some cases, local anesthesia may be used along with a sedative. If the gynecomastia is the result of too much glandular tissue, Dr. Rubinstein creates an incision either in the armpit or on the areola’s edge. The excess tissue is then removed through these incisions. For severe cases of gynecomastia, larger incisions may be required to accommodate the larger quantities of tissue being removed.
If excess fat tissue is the culprit, Dr. Rubinstein may simply use liposuction or both liposuction and surgery. For men with sagging breasts, he might need to reposition the nipples. He may also insert small drainage tubes in each of the incision sites to prevent the accumulation of fluid prior to bandaging the area.
