Revision Male Breast Reduction in Dallas
Dr. Azouz sees many male patients who desire revision gynecomastia surgery in Dallas after already undergoing a procedure to remove gynecomastia elsewhere. Revision gynecomastia patients often report insufficient removal of excess gynecomastia tissue, feel their incisions are not concealed, or do not report having a flat or muscular appearing chest as they were hoping for. Gynecomastia surgery requires meticulous technique, planning, and evaluation. Gynecomastia surgeon Dr. Azouz uses various liposuction techniques to achieve the most optimal results, reduce the amount of breast tissue, and provide a more sculpted and attractive chest.
Why is choosing an experienced board certified plastic surgeon critical in revision gynecomastia surgery?
Choosing an experienced board certified plastic surgeon is critical for many reasons. Having performed thousands of gynecomastia surgeries Dr. David Azouz understands that it is critical to perform gynecomastia surgery with safe, detailed and meticulous techniques. Dr. Azouz has revised gynecomastia surgery from other practitioners where patients may be unhappy for a multitude of different reasons. The most common reason for needing revision gynecomastia surgery include: excessive scarring, inadequate resection of glandular tissue (breast bud), and inadequate liposuction of axillary or lateral chest wall adipose tissue.
Candidates for Gynecomastia Revision Surgery
Patients are good candidates for revision gynecomastia surgery when they are in good general health, have realistic expectations, and are motivated to improve their appearance. The avoidance of gynecomastia triggers such as steroids (anabolic, estrogen-inducing, testosterone-inducting), hormones, marijuana (cannabis), and gynecomastia-inducing drugs can also contribute to an optimal result. Additionally, candidates for gynecomastia revision surgery have already undergone a male breast reduction procedure in the past. Gynecomastia surgery can be performed on boys in their preteen years, teenagers, all the way to men in their senior years.
These men often want a revision because the initial plastic surgery did not achieve the desired results. Often patients report that, despite diet and exercise, the gynecomastia remains without surgical intervention. Although gynecomastia revision surgery is often successful, patients should always have realistic expectations about the outcome of their gynecomastia procedure.
Anesthesia for Revision Gynecomastia Surgery
The selection of anesthesia is determined by Dr. Azouz, the anesthesiologist, and the patient. Often, gynecomastia surgery can be performed without a full general anesthetic that would require intubation. Some patients elect for full general anesthesia and some patients desire a local anesthetic and sedation. Dr. Azouz utilizes highly-trained anesthesiologists who are able to keep patients safe and comfortable during gynecomastia surgery. Dr. Azouz routinely offers his patients the ability to have gynecomastia surgery performed under intravenous (IV) sedation with a local anesthetic. This usually allows the patient a comfortable experience without the grogginess and nausea that can be associated with general anesthesia. Gynecomastia surgery and revision gynecomastia surgery are day surgery in nearly all cases.
