Are There Different Gynaecomastia Shapes?
There are many different types of gynecomastia shapes. Sometimes the gynecomastia is just under the nipple and presents with a puffiness of the nipple. Other times there is actually a projection of the whole breast forward. It may be pointy or very round and curved.
To help patients understand the different types of gynaecomastia, we have created an overview of important information below. If you are considering a treatment for man boobs, please read the information we have provided to you below, as it can provide you with vital answers before your appointment at the Dr Lanzer Clinic.
Which Patients Are More Difficult to Perform This Procedure On?
The procedure can be performed on all patients. However, olive-skinned patients need to be aware that there is more risk of pigmentation of the scars.
Have You Ever Seen Keloid from Gynaecomastia Surgery?
Dr Lanzer has never seen keloid but this would be a risk associated in this area. Before you have any cosmetic procedure, the risks associated with that procedure will be explained to you in detail. Before you can have the procedure, you will be required to sign a consent form; this form will provide you with detailed information regarding the risks, enabling you to make an informed decision.
When Can Patients Get Back to Their Normal Activities?
Usually patients can return to work after just a few days. However, Dr Lanzer does prefer no strenuous exercises for a 2-week period.
Please note that the recovery time may vary from patient to patient. It is important to consult your surgeon before resuming your normal activities, unless stated otherwise by Dr Lanzer. When in doubt, you can also contact the Dr Lanzer Clinic directly.
What Are the Risks Associated with Gynaecomastia Surgery?
The normal risks include swelling, bruising, and if the breast is very large there may be loose skin. Infection is very rare with tumescent liposculpture.
Can Liposuction Be Performed on Other Areas at the Same Time?
In about 30% of patients, including this case, liposculpture can be performed in other areas. Men often have a tendency for large flanks called love handles. They can also experience a larger amount of fat around the stomach area. Therefore, we will often execute high-definition 6-pack liposuction at the same time.
What Is the Best Way About Getting Advice?
Dr Lanzer makes consultations very easy and accessible to the public. He consults all around Australia, either in person, through his nurses, or via the internet. Patients often send photographs in to him for free no-obligation opinion. It only takes a moment to get an opinion. Therefore, it is always worthwhile to do that.
