Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction) Scottsdale

Men can have undesirable breast growth from several causes. Most typical is having a genetic tendency. Gynecomastia from puberty usually goes away on its own in a few years. Breast development that doesn’t go away on its own can be treated. Other causes are certain drugs and medications and medical conditions. It is important to first determine the cause of the gynecomastia before proceeding with surgery to try to prevent recurrence.

Simple gynecomastia involving just fat in that region is treated with liposuction. The incisions are hidden along the edge of the areola or in the armpit.

Gynecomastia with actual breast tissue requires that the tissue be surgically removed. This is usually done with an incision part way around the areola, which is an area that typically scars very well and becomes difficult to see. Since men can get breast cancer too, any breast tissue removed is sent to pathology.

Patients with excess tissue AND a lot of skin, can require removal of the excess skin. Here the incisions are around the areola and then in the fold under the breast.

To Our Valued Patients,

We hope this letter finds you and your loved ones in good health. Per directives by the Governor and HonorHealth we will be restarting surgery and several in-office procedures, while following new protocols to decrease the risk of transmission of any illness.

FOR SURGERIES AT THE OUTPATIENT CENTER: All patients MUST be covid negative. The hospital will coordinate the testing which must be done 2 days before your surgery and will be at NO COST to you.

We have decided to begin with our younger, lower risk patients having shorter surgeries for the first couple of weeks. Preops will of course be in person.

FOR CONSULTS AND BOTOX AND IN-OFFICE PROCEDURES: All patients must be screened for exposure to coronavirus (questionnaire) and have no symptoms or fever. We will not be doing any procedures around the mouth for the first few weeks. Patients MUST wear MASKS.

You will see some changes to our office procedures:

We are really looking forward to seeing everyone again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you and our staff safe in our practice! To make an appointment please call 480-614-3535 or visit our website at www.drwhiteplasticsurgery.com.

Sincerely,
Deborah White, MD and staff
