  • Individuals with stable weight and overall good health

Gynecomastia Surgical Details

During your gynecomastia surgery with Dr. Mehta, he will utilize a small, specialized cannula to precisely remove excess fat from your chest through the process of liposuction. This technique allows targeted fat reduction and sculpting to achieve a more masculine contour. If you opt for pectoral etching, a procedure often performed alongside gynecomastia correction, Dr. Mehta will also remove fat from the edges of the pectoralis muscles and axilla, enhancing the visibility of your muscular contours.

Rest assured that the entire procedure will typically be completed within 1 hour and performed on an outpatient basis. This means you can return home on the same day as your surgery, minimizing disruption to your daily routine. Dr. Mehta’s expertise and precision ensure you receive the highest level of care and achieve the desired results while maintaining your safety and well-being throughout the surgical process.

The Recovery Process

After gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Mehta will provide you with a compression garment. This garment reduces bruising and swelling, allowing for a smoother and faster recovery. Wear the compression garment as instructed by Dr. Mehta to optimize healing. Typically, bruising and swelling will gradually subside within the first two weeks. You can expect noticeable improvements in your chest contour as the healing progresses.

While individual recovery experiences may vary, most patients can return to work within 3-4 days, depending on the nature of their job. Dr. Mehta will provide specific post-operative instructions tailored to your needs, including guidelines on when to resume exercise and physical activities, typically within 2-3 weeks. Follow Dr. Mehta’s instructions diligently to ensure optimal outcomes and minimize the risk of potential complications.
