Developing breasts as a male can make your chest appear feminine, which can leave you feeling self-conscious and unhappy with the appearance of your body. Dr. Schwartz understands that having a masculine and defined chest contour is important for men’s self-confidence and the overall look of their bodies. At the Beverly Hills Breast Institute, we can help our gynecomastia patients feel more comfortable and confident in their appearance.
Dr. Schwartz is one of the foremost leaders in breast surgeries in the United States. One of his specialties is mastectomy, which uses techniques similar to male breast reduction surgery. Depending on the amount of excess tissue you have and what your goals are, Dr. Schwartz may be able to use minimally invasive techniques to give you the masculine contour you’re looking for.
TIVA medications wear off quickly and are eliminated from your body within hours of surgery. This results in a shorter time in the recovery room as well as an overall smoother experience. TIVA is also associated with less or sometimes no nausea or vomiting; in fact, the IV medication has an anti-nausea effect. You will likely feel good enough to go out for dinner the night after your surgery.
Typically, patients return to work after one week and may be able to resume some exercise after four weeks and full exercise at six weeks.
At the Beverly Hills Breast Institute, we pride ourselves on our state-of-the-art protocols to minimize discomfort, and you will feel the support from Dr. Schwartz’s nurses and team, which will be available to you 24/7 after your procedure. As you and Dr. Schwartz develop your plan of treatment together, he will give you precise information on what to expect in terms of your recovery.
