Gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts) Surgery Before and After Photos

 

Gynecomastia or male breast reduction is a cosmetic surgery procedure for males who are unhappy with the appearance of abnormally large breasts.

The condition can be corrected with surgical reduction of excess breast tissue to restore a normal male chest. During the initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss various aspects of the procedure with the patient.

A prudent surgeon may also choose to present male breast reduction plastic surgery before and after photos to explain the potential effectiveness of the procedure. Cordial board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides gynecomastia surgery to patients in Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and surrounding communities in The Birthplace of Aviation.

What are Gynecomastia Before and After Images?

Before and after pictures in case of gynecomastia cosmetic surgery refer to a group or pair of images pertaining to a previous patient who has received the same surgery with satisfactory results. The images include pictures taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the swelling has disappeared completely and full results of gynecomastia are visible.

The surgeon will take the photographs with the patient’s consent and show them to new patients in an appropriate and discreet way.

The only purpose behind this exercise is to use the photographs as a visual tool to educate new patients about different aspects of gynecomastia and help them to make an informed decision. With these images, it becomes easier to explain to them what the surgery may or may not do for them.

These amazing digital pictures can be seen during the consultation. This means that someone can apply what they see to their own situation. This means the surgeon – Dr. Kaufman – and the patient can be on the same page which means less pressure and anxiety if the patient signs on the dotted line.

No plastic surgery surgeon wants to operate on anyone unless they realize what is going to happen and what to expect. Transparency is key here and this successful surgeon has many satisfied clients.

Advantages

When a man suffering from enlarged breasts is considering the option of male breast reduction surgery, he may not have much idea about how exactly the procedure help to achieve his aesthetic needs.

Some men may need only a limited surgical fat tissue removal or simply liposuction, while others may need more extensive surgery. In some cases, the surgeon may recommend a combination of gynecomastia and liposuction to achieve more substantial results.

For a new patient, it can be difficult to make the best choice among various options. This is where the surgeon may make use of gynecomastia before and after photos to assist the patient in making the right decision.

Keeping Realistic Expectations

Best satisfaction levels in any cosmetic procedure are often achieved when the patient has clearly understood the procedure and formed realistic expectations about it. Male breast reduction before and after photos can play a key role in this process and can help to ensure that the patient knows from the beginning what to expect and what not to expect from the results which has been illustrated though can be emphasized enough.

Online Photo Gallery

The surgeon may choose to provide male breast reduction plastic surgery before and after photos on their practice website in a dedicated photo gallery section but this in this particular case this is not done. Though this does not mean a patient cannot see pictures of this kind during the consultation. A gynecomastia consultation has to occur anyways and there is a page dedicated to this type of procedure on the site.

Accomplished plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman receives patients from Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and other towns and neighborhoods in this outstanding part of the nation for gynecomastia surgery.

How much does Gynecomastia (Enlarged Male Breasts) Surgery Cost?

A breast reduction cosmetic surgery procedure can be used to treat gynecomastia (male breast enlargement). The patient may be able to get insurance coverage for gynecomastia surgery.

However, this may depend on the underlying causes of the condition. Patient should clearly understand the approximate costs, in case he has to bear the expenses of the procedure out-of-pocket.

A committed plastic surgeon will provide the patient with clear information regarding a gynecomastia surgery, including its estimated costs.

This will help the patient to make a well-considered decision. Committed board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides gynecomastia surgery to patients in Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and surrounding locations in this area of The Mother of Presidents.

Financial Factors

Male breast reduction surgery costs can differ between practices and even between two patients at the same practice. The factors below often impact the financial stipulations of this surgical procedure:

Location of the Practice

Gynecomastia cosmetic surgery costs may be higher at a practice situated in a main urban center or busy metropolitan area in comparison to a small town in the interiors.

At prime locations, the costs of real estate and overheads are usually higher. This affects the average costs of goods and services in the area, including plastic surgery procedures such as male breast reduction.

Surgeon’s Fee

The surgeon’s fees will usually depend on their expertise, experience, and eminence in the area of cosmetic surgery. Plastic surgeons with board certification usually invest in the latest technology, adopt advanced surgical techniques, pursue on-going education and follow the most recent safety protocols.

According to the ASPS, patients should identify the most suitable plastic surgeon for their needs. Considerations such as the surgeon’s fees should only be secondary.

Anesthesia and Surgical Venue Costs

The patient will require the services of an anesthesiologist or a certified nurse anesthetist if the gynecomastia surgery performed under general anesthesia. The fees of the anesthesia provider will differ depending on their qualifications. They will typically remain in attendance throughout the procedure to monitor the patient’s response to the anesthesia.

The male breast reduction surgery may take place at an accredited surgical center, a hospital, or a private surgical suite. Each option will have different costs and advantages. The patient can choose a surgical facility in conjunction with the surgeon.

Additional Expenses

The estimation of the total costs of the gynecomastia surgery should also include costs for items such as medical tests, prescription meds, and follow up appointments with the plastic surgeon. Working professionals should also consider the cost implications of taking off from work to recover from the surgery.

Extent of Surgery

While certain patients may need tissue reduction in one breast, others may require it in both. In case the glandular tissue is not present, the surgeon may perform only a liposuction procedure. Other patients may need liposuction as well as excision.

Investing in Quality

The patient should choose a well-qualified and expert surgeon for a significant procedure such as male breast reduction surgery in order to achieve safe and predictable outcomes. Devoted plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman receives patients from Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and other towns and cities in this prolific region of the country for gynecomastia surgery.

Neuromodulators (Botox/Dysport/Xeomin) Injections

Botox/Dysport/Xeomin

botox before and after photosNeuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) are injected into certain areas to cause a temporary muscle tone loss.

Consequently, there will be a reduction in wrinkles and lines in the forehead and upper face as well as the furrows between the eyebrows creating an aesthetically desirable effect.

Following the treatment, the upper skin layer remains wrinkle-free and smooth whereas the untreated muscles of the face contract normally causing no impact on regular facial expressions.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides neuromodulator injections to patients in Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and surrounding communities in this region of The Mother of Presidents.

Injection Procedure and Results

The treatment provider takes around 10 minutes to administer the neuromodulator injections, and they offer results for an average of three to four months.

After patients receive three to four injections, neuromodulators have shown to create a long-term effect in the reduction of forehead lines, crow’s feet and deep furrows between the brows.

The patient does not need sedation or local anesthetic for this treatment and can resume their routine immediately. They can drive themselves back home or to the office right after the treatment. The neuromodulators show effect within two to five days following the injections, but the full outcomes may take up to two weeks to become apparent.

A common side effect of this treatment is bruising at the injection location. However, side effects of this treatment are temporary and negligible. Neuromodulators are an excellent treatment for the deep furrows between the eyebrows, forehead lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles.

The procedure is relatively painless. The effects of the treatment start becoming noticeable in three to five days, and full outcomes are apparent at around ten days after the injection.

A treatment series lasts for around three months. Periodic use can mitigate fine lines more sustainably over time. Some patients may have mild headaches or redness at the site of the injection within 12 hours of receiving the treatment.

Botox Injectables

Botox is one of the most sought-after injectable treatments available in the market today. It helps patients achieve a natural-looking and rested facial appearance. Botox injectables help reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face by paralyzing the underlying muscles. Repetitive treatments also help in preventing the development of new wrinkles.

The effects of Botox injections can sustain for up to three to four months and only have an impact on the injection site. This enables the treatment provider to apply it in a manner that offers very natural looking outcomes.

The treatment takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete. A majority of users only feel little to no pain when receiving the injections. The results start becoming visible after two days, and full outcomes are evident by the 10th day.

Dysport Injections

Dysport and Botox are similar in the sense that they both enable the muscles of the face to relax and fill-in wrinkles. It can provide the eyes with a more youthful look by lifting a sagging brow. As with Botox, Dysport injectables treatment is also quick and painless.

The Dysport formulation is almost the same as Botox. However, it contains a lesser concentration of protein in comparison to Botox.

Xeomin Injections

Xeomin is a neuromodulator which means that it prevents the contraction of muscles. Xeomin has received approval for the cosmetic use of treating moderate to severe frown lines, lines between the brows and other lines on the forehead.

Committed plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman receives patients from Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and other cities and suburbs in this region of the nation for anti-aging treatments.

Cosmetic Injectables & Dermal Fillers

Injectables & Fillers

Botox InjectionsVarious dermal filler and neuromodulator injectable treatments are available to patients today to resolve a wide array of facial aesthetic concerns. There may be a variation in the composition and volumizing potency of each filler treatment.

The treatment provider should present the patient with multiple injectable alternatives, and recommend the ones that are most suitable for the patient’s unique volume loss or facial aging needs.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides dermal filler treatments and Botox injectables to suitable candidates in Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and surrounding locations in this pleasant part of the Midwest.

Juvederm Filler

Juvederm is a highly sought after dermal filler injectable that has been approved by the FDA. The main active ingredient in Juvederm is hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a compound that occurs in the body naturally. This makes Juvederm dermal filler entirely biocompatible.

The filler gel adds instant volume to depleted facial sites and plumps up the skin to mitigate fine lines and wrinkles.

This injectable medical spa treatment offers natural looking outcomes that can sustain for between six months and a year. Juvederm can effectively provide an improvement to facial areas such as the nose, lips, forehead, and mouth.

Radiesse Filler

Radiesse dermal filler can help patients with significantly loose facial skin that causes deep creases, wrinkles, and folds around the mouth and nose. This innovative filler has been developed to address marionette lines, deep nasolabial folds, and laugh lines.

Radiesse gel contains the active ingredient known as calcium hydroxylapatite. This compound is a biocompatible material. The calcium compound microspheres promote the production of new collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. This makes the anti-aging outcomes capable of sustaining for up to two years.

Restylane Filler

Restylane filler is available in various forms which can help reduce wrinkles on the face and treat fragile or sensitive skin areas such as under the eyes and the lips. Restylane plumps up the wrinkles while providing moisture and lubrication to fragile skin enabling it to appear brighter and more youthful.

HA is the active ingredient in Restylane dermal filler. In the body, this compound holds the skin together. When the treatment provider injects Restylane gel into the depleted facial areas, it encourages the production of fresh collagen fibers, and the thick gel offers immediate fullness.

Sculptra Aesthetic

Sculptra Aesthetic is a powerful and effective dermal filler. It can effectively address smile lines and deep folds and creases on the face. Sculptra Aesthetic treatment commonly involves a series of three injections over three to four months. The outcomes become apparent gradually and in a natural manner over the duration of the treatment and can sustain for around two years.

Sculptra Aesthetic comprises the active ingredient poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). This ingredient can powerfully stimulate collagen while working in the deep dermis instead of topically.

Botox – Neuromodulator

Overactive muscles between the eyebrows as well as around the eye and mouth corners can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. If injected directly into these muscles, the FDA approved Botox treatment can relax them instantly.

Successful plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman receives patients from Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and nearby areas across the horizon for various aesthetic treatments.

Enlarged Male Breasts (Gynecomastia)

Enlarged Male Breasts

FHnIreaVW49pQmz1lSeCW7einbUwRlhoa4oql7M9y94,8AsJK2N7mM_V-vDYyyewJVTA7UQLmxsmitE98Jv45acGynecomastia is a cosmetic surgery option for the treatment of large male breasts. While gynecomastia surgery eliminates excess breast tissue and gland, the surgery for pseudo-gynecomastia helps remove surplus fat.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has categorized gynecomastia into 4 grades on the basis of factors such as the extent of breast enlargement and breast feminization. Grade 1 refers to mild enlargement while grade 4 is considered as severe enlargement of the breasts.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides gynecomastia surgery to patients in Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and surrounding communities in this part of The Heart of it All.

Ideal Candidates

A suitable candidate for this procedure is a person who is unhappy about their presence of excessive breast tissue and has realistic expectations from the gynecomastia cosmetic surgery.

He should preferably be at least 21 years of age and should not have any dangerous pre-existing medical conditions that may affect the recovery process or cause complications during the surgical procedure.

Surgical Techniques

The main goal of the surgeon is to create a chest that is proportional with the rest of the body. After the undesirable breast mass is eliminated, the patient can work towards developing the chest size and shape that they want.

The surgeon will choose one of the following techniques or combine both techniques depending on the patient’s physical attributes and gynecomastia grade.

Liposuction

The surgeon will use liposuction primarily to eliminate excess fat in a gynecomastia procedure. They will place small incisions and insert a narrow, hollow tube and then move the tube back and forth in precise motions. This action loosens stubborn fatty deposits which are subsequently removed from the body using vacuum.

Excision

In addition, the surgeon may use the excision technique during gynecomastia surgery to remove surplus breast skin and tissue. It becomes necessary to use the excision technique if the patient requires areola reduction or nipple repositioning to create a better chest contour.

The surgeon may also use a combination of both these techniques depending on the patient’s unique needs.

Male Breast Reduction with Tissue Excision

Severe gynecomastia cases may need surgical tissue excision to attain effective outcomes. Furthermore, patients with loose stretched skin in the breast area will commonly require this approach. The technique involving tissue excision enables plastic surgeons to eliminate a more substantial amount of skin and/or glandular tissue than they possibly can with liposuction only.

The incision length and location depends on the extent of the surgery that the patient needs. However, surgeons commonly place incisions around the areola’s edge (peri-areolar incision) or within the natural chest creases. A judicious and well-trained plastic surgeon will try to place these incisions in strategic areas to make the consequent scarring as inconspicuous as possible.

Tissue excision-based male breast reduction is usually performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. Successful plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman receives patients from Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and other suburbs and neighborhoods in this area of the country for gynecomastia.

How long do injectable treatments last to keep lips full?

How Long Does Lip Augmentation Enhancement Last?Aging and other factors can impact even plump lips, causing them to lose some of their fullness and youthful look with the passage of time.

This is an area where lip augmentation cosmetic surgery or non-surgical injectable treatment can help. The goal is not to change the facial appearance, but to provide a fresher and more youthful appearance that may likely boost the patient’s self-confidence as well.

Despite major improvements in lip injections, they are still not a long-lasting solution. The longevity of the treatment depends on the treatment chosen, and how the patient’s body reacts to the procedure.

For instance, lip fillers will last longer on young people as their body still has sufficient collagen and hyaluronic acid production to sustain outcomes for longer. Conversely, aged people may require periodic treatments such as Restylane.

Lip implant surgery is a much more sustainable treatment option, but the patient should be prepared to go through the preparation, recovery and the entire surgical process. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides lip augmentation to patients in Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and surrounding communities in the fantastic state of Ohio.

Longevity of Injectable Treatments

Juvederm

Juvederm is used in lip augmentation primarily to fill wrinkles surrounding the lips. Juvederm is a hypoallergenic gel that offers immediate fullness to the treatment area. Its outcomes appear natural and sustain for around one year.

Restylane

Restylane is also a derivative of hyaluronic acid and offers volume and natural glow to the tissue. On an average, it sustains for between 6 to 12 months, and then the hyaluronic acid is absorbed by the body.

Perlane

Perlane also comprises hyaluronic acid. Therefore, the outcomes appear incredibly natural and sustain for a long time. In case you decide to receive a Perlane treatment, you can expect the outcomes to remain for 6 to 12 months on an average.

Collagen Injections

This specific filler is animal-based and may cause an allergic response. Therefore, it needs a skin test prior to administering it to the patient. Human collagen-based treatments are also available. In both types of treatments, the outcomes last for around 3 months.

Fat Transfer to the Lips

Some individuals choose to undergo fat removal from any location on the body and inject it to their lips. There is no allergic response as the fat comes from within the patient’s body. Outcomes sustain for around 3 months, but you can choose to receive a touch-up for longer lasting results.

Longevity of Lip Implants

You may consider permanent lip implant cosmetic surgery if you feel that lip injections lack the desired longevity.

  • Lip implants are specially designed, soft silicone implants that are placed in the lips to add fullness.
  • Lip implants are permanent and do not warrant trips to your cosmetic surgeon in future as lip injections do.
  • Lip implants are more costly in comparison to injectable fillers, but over a period they may prove to be a more cost-effective alternative.

Lip implant surgery offers permanence of results, but it is more expensive, involves some degree of risk (such as scarring), and has a more substantial recovery period. Committed plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman receives patients from Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and other towns and suburbs in The Heart of it All for lip augmentation surgery.

Want Fuller Lips?

Lip Augmentation Enhancement Before And After PhotosLip augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to add volume to thinning lips and enhance lip definition. During the initial consultation, the surgeon will explain various aspects of lip enhancement surgery and may make use of lip augmentation before and after photographs.

The surgeon’s first goal will be to educate the patient about lip enhancement and help them make an informed choice. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides lip augmentation to patients in Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and surrounding locations in this fantastic part of the Midwest.

What are Lip Augmentation Before and After Images?

Before and after photos in case of lip augmentation refer to a pair or group of images belonging to a previous patient who has undergone the same procedure successfully. The pictures include images taken before the surgery and after the surgery at a time when the post-operative swelling and redness has subsided and full effects of the procedure are noticeable.

The surgeon will take care to obtain these pictures with the approval of the patient, and present them before new patients in a discreet manner. The patient’s identity may be kept undisclosed as per the protocol.

The surgeon’s purpose is only to educate new patients about lip augmentation cosmetic surgery with the help of these pictures. The photos serve as a visual tool to help new patients understand what the procedure can or cannot do for their facial appearance.

Advantages

When a new patient is considering lip enhancement, they may only have a limited idea of how it will impact the appearance of their lips and the face. Some patients may need fat transfer injections in the lips, while a few may be candidates for lip implants. In some cases, the surgeon may recommend lip augmentation in combination with a cheek lift surgery or another facial procedure.

It can be difficult for a patient to make the right decisions just by listening to the surgeon’s explanation. This is where lip augmentation before and after photos may help the patient to make a better decision.

Expectations from the Surgery

One of the concerns of the surgeon during the initial consultation process is to ensure that the patient has a positive frame of mind, clear aesthetic priorities and realistic expectations from the procedure. With the help of lip augmentation before and after photos, the surgeon can ensure that the patient has fair idea of what to expect and what not to expect from the procedure.

The risk of any misunderstandings or potential disappointments is mitigated in this process. Patients with realistic expectations typically achieve greater levels of satisfaction from a cosmetic procedure such as lip enhancement.

Digital Photos on Site

The surgeon may provide digital versions of the lip augmentation before and after photos on their website which in this case there is one image of this particular surgery. Patients can perhaps see before and after pictures of lip augmentation during the consultation.

The salient aspect here is digital technology. It was not too long ago when a patient did not really have any idea what to expect. But now with digital technology a patient has access to so much more pivotal information. Now patients can make serious decisions without notifying anyone.

This has made this process much more pleasant and harmonious. Now the entire neighborhood and someone’s entire family does not have to know what someone is thinking. If this is not better for a patient then what is?
Dependable plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman receives patients from Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and other towns and cities in The Birthplace of Aviation for lip augmentation surgery.

How long does lip augmentation enhancement last?

How long does lip augmentation enhancement last?Many women wish to enhance their facial appearance and youthfulness with plump, sensual lips. Lip fat transfer cosmetic surgery, lip augmentation with implant surgery, dermal fillers or lip laser enhancement can help the lips appear fuller and improve the look of the face in entirety.

But patients often express concerns about the sustainability of lip augmentation procedures before they make their decision. A committed surgeon will educate the patient about the longevity and other aspects of the procedure to help them make an informed choice.

Considerate board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides lip augmentation to patients in Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and other suburbs and towns in The Heart of it All.

Lip Implants

Lip implants offer permanent lip augmentation with outcomes that are more sustainable in comparison to dermal fillers. Lip implant cosmetic surgery is a relatively minor procedure and typically takes an hour to finish.

The surgeon will place tiny incisions on the lips, and create a narrow tunnel in the lips to hold the implant. Then they will place the implant and thread it through the lip. After a successful lip augmentation procedure, the outcomes can sustain for many years, or even permanently.

Lip Augmentation with Fat Transfer

Lip augmentation with fat transfer is an excellent solution for patients who want fuller, plumper lips but do not want to inject foreign materials into their bodies. Lip fat transfer only involves the body’s natural tissue. Therefore, allergic reactions or rejections are a rare occurrence.

In this procedure, fat is removed from an area of the patient’s body such as the abdomen, hips or thighs via liposuction. The surgeon then injects this fat into the lips using a blunt needle and a syringe. The procedure enables patients to enjoy natural-feeling, soft lips that sustain from about six months to a year or more.

Longevity of results will vary in each case, depending on the quality of fat and how well it gets integrated in the recipient area.

Lip Augmentation with Dermal Fillers

Surgeons may recommend injectable lip fillers to create a fuller look for the lips in cases where the patient wants to avoid surgery. There is a wide range of filler materials and injection techniques available for lip augmentation which offers patients choices to suit their individual requirements. The field of lip enhancement has advanced over the years, and some of the new techniques are so efficient that they can produce long lasting results.

However, the outcomes with lip filler injections are not permanent as the body gradually disintegrates and absorbs the filler gel. The sustainability of the results differs between patients, but the outcomes last for at least six months to one year on an average.

Bovine-Derived Collagen Fillers

Collagen derived from bovines is extracted from cow tissue. Polymethylmethacrylate microspheres are a component of bovine collagen. This ingredient remains in the lips even after the collagen is absorbed. This leads to longer lasting or even permanent outcomes for lip augmentation. However, this animal-based filler will require prior allergy testing, and some surgeons may not recommend these fillers for lip augmentation.

Lip Augmentation with Laser

Outcomes with laser lip augmentation treatment may sustain for around a year. The number of treatment sessions received by the patient will influence the longevity of the outcome. Reliable plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman receives patients from Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and nearby areas in this stellar part of the Midwest.
