Successful gynecomastia surgery is preceded by careful planning. A personal consultation with a medical specialist is the first step. Discuss your wishes, ideas and expectations regarding the operation with the surgeon. The specialists at Aesthea need this important information to help you understand the options and limitations of the procedure.
Your attending physician will take measurements and digital photographs of your breasts during the physical examination. They facilitate an objective analysis of the initial situation and careful planning of the operation.
Breast size and shape, the position and size of the nipples, existing asymmetries of the breast or breast wall, as well as the skin quality and any scars are taken into account during planning. The appropriate surgical technique as well as the position of the skin incisions and the resulting scars can be determined on the basis of these individual factors and your personal wishes. You and your attending physician will work out the most suitable treatment plan for you. Your physician will inform you in detail about all risks and possible complications of the procedure and the agreed operation will be documented accordingly.
To prepare for the operation, we need information about your medical history (previous illnesses and previous operations), any current illnesses (high blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid dysfunction), allergies or intolerances as well as detailed information about any medication you are taking. This information is used to evaluate the risk of surgery and anesthesia.
If you are planning to lose a lot of weight in the foreseeable future, please take this into account when planning a breast correction. It may be advisable to postpone surgery until your weight stabilizes.
Depending on the local findings as well as familial and personal risk factors, it is advisable to have a mammogram (X-ray examination of the breast) or a breast ultrasound before the procedure. A preoperative examination by the urologist may also be necessary under certain circumstances.
