When considering asking for gynecomastia treatments in Chicago, it is vitally important to look for a board-certified plastic surgeon with lots of experience. Dr. Steinbrech has treated hundreds of male patients with gynecomastia and has turned plastic surgery into an art form. If anyone can treat you, he can.

What Is Gynecomastia?

It can be…

  • Abnormally high amounts of chest fatty tissue in men
  • Excess glandular development around your chest
  • A combination of both extra glandular tissue and excess
  • All of the above!

Gynecomastia isn’t always symmetrical. It can happen in one or both breasts. Prior to receiving gynecomastia surgery, you should look to see if there is any specific cause of their breast tissue growth. The causes can include the use of certain prescription or street drugs, illness, underlying hereditary conditions, or hormonal changes. In some cases, gynecomastia can vanish on its own.

The Gynecomastia Surgical Procedure: What to Know

Gynecomastia surgery could be performed under general anesthesia or under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis – all depending on the amount of tissue being removed as well as the man’s health. Dr. Steinbrech will tell you what to expect during the consultation.

What should patients expect from gynecomastia surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery is often done via liposuction and can include removal of excess glandular tissue. The time to treat gynecomastia surgically generally takes two hours.

Recovery from Gynecomastia Surgery

The recovery you’ll experience from gynecomastia surgery will hinge on the type of procedure that was performed. If you had a lot of tissue removed, you will likely have to take it easier. No matter what you had done, downtime is minimal (roughly one week at most) and results remain permanent. The only time you will see a return of gynecomastia would be if future weight gain causes excess fat deposits in the breast area. A little bruising and temporary swelling is normal following almost any type of surgery. You should expect the same with a gynecomastia treatment. Post- surgery, male patients will be asked to wear a compression garment for a few days. They may have to wear it until they fully recover. These specialized garments help skin adhere to your tissue, assist in helping you get used to the contour of your body, and also minimize swelling. Gynecomastia recovery can be painful, which is why medication will be given to you to relieve discomfort during the first days in recovery. While you recover from your male breast reduction surgery, any and all strenuous activity should be avoided until your incisions heal. After your surgery is finished, Dr. Steinbrech will carefully evaluate your recovery situation and advise you of the time it would take to return to work and normal activities. Most Chicago men will be able to return to work within 1 to 2 weeks.
