Abnormally-enlarged breasts in men, known as Gynecomastia, can usually be corrected through a simple procedure using a specialized form of liposuctioning known as the “ultrasonic method” or “liposelection.” There are many possible reasons for male breast growth, and each patient must discuss his specific needs with Dr.Fisher, who will ask about your medical record, your physical and emotional health, as well as examine your skin quality. A more expert surgical operation may be required if your problem is a result of abuse of performance enhancing drugs. In such cases, gynecomastia usually affects only the area around the nipple. Only an artistically-minded, patient surgeon, such as Dr.Fisher, using a very detailed and precise technique, will accomplish an impeccable result.
In our hospital, we also perform breast reconstruction surgeries, which may have been produced by a former unskilled surgical procedure, or resulted from cancer treatment, i.e. mastectomy. New medical techniques and devices have made it possible for surgeons to create a breast that can come close in form and appearing to matching a natural breast. Post-mastectomy breast reconstruction is not a simple procedure, but ought to follow – upon successful completion of cancer treatment – your physical and psychological healing. You should not be shy if something so excruciating in your life as mastectomy has occurred. Dr.Fisher has extensive experience in reconstructive surgery and will be able to help you.
