Liposuction

Liposuction Surgery
Liposuction surgery is one of the most common operative procedures performed nationwide. Liposuction surgery is frequently performed simultaneously with other procedures.

The Importance of the Compression Vest

Not all surgeons require a compression vest after surgery, or some for only a short time. I have my gynecomastia patients wear a compression vest 24/7 for 6 weeks. The vest may be bulky, and a little uncomfortable, but is necessary for the healing process. It should be worn snug, but not tight.

Dr. Miguel Delgado recommends the vest be worn 24/7 for 4 to 6 weeks, depending on how the patient is healing. The vest should only be removed when showering. It is recommended to have 2 vests so that you can rotate them while one is being laundered.

Gynecomastia Surgery and Avoiding a Seroma

 

Avoiding complications after gynecomastia surgery is a goal of all surgeons. With careful planning, most complications can be minimized or avoided altogether. Most gynecomastia surgeons believe in the use of drains and the wearing of a compression vest after surgery.

Are you a candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery?

A condition little talked about but widely apparent is Gynecomastia, the overdevelopment of a male breast. A reaction to too much estrogen or too little testosterone, gynecomastia can occur in newborns, teenagers, and adult men.
In babies, preteen, teenage boys, and young adult men.

Tis the Season For Gynecomastia Surgery

 

Deciding to proceed with male breast reduction surgery is an exciting time. It also presents with many arrangements that you will need to make; such as, having someone care for you for at least the first 24 hours, transportation home after surgery, getting lab tests done, filling prescriptions, getting time off work…and when will you have the surgery?

Gynecomastia Affects Posture

Many men attempting to hide their gynecomastia breasts may roll their shoulders and even tip their spinal cord forward. Ultimately, this poor posture may have many detrimental effects such as; back and neck pain, and misalignment of their skeleton, and even digestive and breathing problems.
