Dr. Guenther understands the importance of working with each of his male breast reduction patients individually so he can personalize the surgery to match his distinctive body type. During your consultation, you will have an in-depth conversation with him about your goals for the procedure, including:
- A symmetrical, flatter, more muscular-looking chest
- Reshaped and/or resized nipples
- A toned surface without excess skin or tissue
- The ability to wear a fitted shirt or even walk around shirtless
Dr. Guenther will provide honest and candid answers to all your questions during your private consultation. Dr. Guenther's extensive training allows him to employ the most forward-thinking surgical methods available in order to create natural results down to the finest detail.
Advanced Techniques & Options
Dr. Guenther knows his patients want their bodies to look so natural that nobody else will suspect they have undergone plastic surgery. During his years of intensive medical training and experience, he honed his command of both plastic and reconstructive surgery, allowing him to sculpt your upper body to suit your individual desires while leaving minimal scarring.
While Dr. Guenther uses liposuction for almost all of his gynecomastia procedures, only some of his male breast-reduction patients will require surgery to remove redundant skin. Liposuction not only allows him to remove dense breast tissue but can also help tighten the overlying skin for a toned appearance.
Healing & Enjoying Your New Look
Because of Dr. Guenther's highly developed breast-reduction techniques, your gynecomastia procedure will take place on an outpatient basis. You will need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks following the procedure to assure proper healing, support your new chest and maximize your comfort during recovery.
The exact length and nature of your recovery, including the interval for follow-up appointments will depend on the extent of your surgery. Dr. Guenther will discuss the individual details of your recovery during your consultation; he will be available to answer any questions you may have during your downtime and offer his assistance to meet all your needs.
