Male Breast Reduction Gatineau - Ottawa - Breast Surgery
As a leading plastic surgeon, Dr. Patricia Berbari uses only the latest male breast reduction techniques at her Gatineau surgical centre, helping patients achieve a more masculine chest shape. Through careful consideration of your needs and administration of superior care, she can re-sculpt your chest to be free of unwanted gland and fat, and proportional to your physique. If the overdevelopment of your breasts is leading you to feel self-conscious, and holding you back from being active and feeling confident in your own skin, a male breast reduction procedure may be an ideal option for you. Dr. Berbari has several years of experience on her side; she has safely and successfully treated several cases of gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts).
There are different types of gynecomastia and a wide range of reasons why a patient develops it. Sometimes, the condition is familial, it can also result from excessive weight or it can be hormonal. No matter what the cause of your condition, Dr. Berbari will try to configure a treatment plan that yields a more pleasing look. Here is what you can expect to experience when seeking male breast reduction treatment at our Gatineau facility:
Comprehensive Consultation - Before beginning any cosmetic treatments, Dr. Berbari will conduct a preliminary consultation, in which she will want to obtain as much information as possible about your medical history and cosmetic objectives.
In-depth Evaluation - Dr. Berbari will assess your specified treatment area prior to recommending surgical or non-surgical remedies. Our goal is to provide you with precisely the treatment that will help you achieve the very best results.
For many patients who desire treatment for their gynecomastia, Dr. Berbari recommends weight loss, or a consultation with an endocrinologist for hormone therapy, or prescription medication. Because of our conservative approach to cosmetic enhancement and reduction surgery, our desire is to give you the safest, healthiest and most natural-looking outcome, in the least invasive manner. Physical activity and a well-balanced diet can help a patient achieve a more masculine chest contour.
If non-surgical treatment is unsuccessful, or doesn't achieve the results that you desire, Dr. Berbari can perform liposuction. This technique removes excess fat and glandular tissue.
If you desire a more sculpted pectoral area, Dr. Berbari can combine liposuction with surgical reshaping of your chest. For patients who have recently lost an excessive amount of weight and have an excess of skin, Dr. Berbari removes unnecessary tissue through a circular incision around the areola, sometimes a horizontal incision (approximately 2 centimetre long) beneath the breast is required. If necessary, this procedure can be combined with a liposuction treatment.
Risks & Complications
A seroma, a hematoma, scarring problems and a loss of sensation in the nipple may occur.
In some cases, an aspirative drain remains in place for 5 days, following treatment. No matter which procedure is used, once your breast reduction has been completed, you will wear a chest compression vest for six weeks. Because patients experience tenderness and pain during the recovery process, Dr. Berbari will prescribe enough medication to ease your discomfort while you heal.
