Managing Excess Skin After Gynecomastia Surgery
Grade 3 Gynecomastia is characterised by moderate to significant breast enlargement with excess skin. Grade 4 Gynecomastia is defined by significant breast enlargement with a substantial amount of excess skin that resembles sagging female breasts. Most often, when candidates with Grade 3 and Grade male breasts undergo Gynecomastia Surgery, further loosening and sagging of the skin around the chest is expected due the significant amount of gland and/or fat removal. This also causes the nipples to droop down further, overriding the purpose of trying to achieve an aesthetically pleasing chest.
However, with the introduction of a unique nipple-areola complex (NAC) lifting technique, developed by Dr. Karthik Ram and his team at Chennai Plastic Surgery, the effective management of skin redundancy in severe Gynecomastia is now made possible. Further, the Nipple Areola Complex can be positioned at an aesthetically pleasing site on the chest. Click on thumbnail to watch the video.
In severe cases of Gynecomastia, beyond the implementation of this technique, some candidates may still continue to have mild skin laxity which is more often just palpable rather than visible.
A natural approach to combat the loose skin in such cases would be to bulk up the chest muscles at the right places to compensate for the volume loss. You can adopt an appropriate chest workout regimen with high protein intake. It is advisable to connect with a good fitness trainer who can guide you in bulking up the specific muscles like the lower portion or the upper portion of the pectoral muscle, as required. On rare occasions, fat grafting at appropriate regions on the chest can help combat the loose skin issue.
For those who do not prefer to build muscle, radiofrequency based machines such as Exilis etc. are an option. Radiofrequency helps repair damaged collagen fibres and synthesise new collagen fibres, thereby helping tighten the skin. Collagen Peptide supplements are also a good option to manage loose skin post Gynecomastia Surgery.
