Liposuction (VASER® technology) or tightening (Renuvion®)
WHAT IS GYNECOMASTIA?
One has to differ between the “true” gynaecomastia, ie the profileration of glandular tissue and the “wrong” gynaecomastia, also called pseudogynecomastia, which occurs mainly as a result of fatty deposits. In most cases, it is a combination of increased glandular tissue and excess fat or excess skin. The decision which surgical technique to use, we make together after an initial interview and a detailed analysis of the initial situation.
THIS HAPPENS BEFORE THE OPERATION.
When it comes to consultation, in our experience, men are more anxious than women. Yet, there is a solution to almost every problem. Once the ice is broken, male patients too are relieved and happy about their decision to finally have taken the first step. In a comprehensive first meeting, we will discuss, whether your wishes can be achieved with medical and technical possibilities. We have to have an unanimous goal.
THIS HAPPENS DURING THE OPERATION
Often, the desired result can be achieved with a single liposuction. With VASER® liposuction, excess fat is sucked off at one point and, with autologous fat, forms the breast into a more masculine form. This procedure leaves no large visible scars on the chest, but about 5mm small punctures on the nipple vest and in the armpit. If the gynecomastia is present after a significant weight loss, the skin excess and the sunken nipple is corrected by a tightening operation. The scar then runs around the areola and possibly vertically or transversely to the breast fold. This can be visualized as an anchor. If there is only a small excess of skin, after a suction, the excess skin can be removed with the new technique Renuvion® – a cold plasma – be tightened from the inside without additional cuts.
THE PROCEDURE AND THE AFTERCARE
The gynecomastia procedure takes place in Vienna on a daily basis and in twilight sleep or a light anesthetic. My claim: precision and safety during the operation. I have over 13 years of experience in breast surgery and bodyforming, and over 1,000 procedures – including many in gynecomastia. The well-rehearsed surgical team is complemented by experienced anesthesiologists who will look after you safely throughout the procedure. Overnight stays at the clinic are rarely necessary today for medical reasons. Our patients like to stay overnight when the journey is far away or you just want to spend a night rest from everyday life. You should spare yourself at least 7 days. If you are able to work in society, you will be able to work again after 5-7 days, depending on the job – after 1-2 weeks. But you should refrain from sports activities in the first 6 weeks and give yourself rest. For the best results, a compression shirt should be worn after the operation and should be worn for 6 weeks. The right scar treatment LINK is very important and ensures an improved, beautiful complexion.
