An uncommonly occurring condition among men, gynecomastia can create distress for men of all ages. Surgical correction of gynecomastia typically consists of some combination of liposuction techniques — including ultrasound assisted liposuction, Smartlipo, power-assisted liposuction, or VASER® LipoSelection® — and/or excision of the excess tissue. The procedure is most often performed in an outpatient center and can take as little as one hour.

Why consider male breasts?
Many men with overdeveloped breasts, or gynecomastia, feel an understandable sense of shame and embarrassment. This can even prevent them from seeking surgical correction. If you suffer from gynecomastia, the plastic surgeons at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery want you to know they understand how uncomfortable this condition can be. Our doctors are knowledgeable and practiced in the latest techniques available to bring your breasts back to a more normal size and have you feeling better about your body.
What about recovery?
You can expect to return to mostly sedentary work and light activities in a few days and resume more strenuous activities in two to three weeks. Complete recovery — meaning all swelling and bruising disappears — will take a few months. Your new, more normal look will be permanent.
Having a discussion with your plastic surgeon will help you learn more and allow you to chose which type of procedure would give you the best possible appearance. Call 614.246.6900 or request a consultation online today.
