Gynecomastia removal with Local Anaesthetic is a relatively simple surgical procedure. This method of treatment is very effective and quick. There are three steps to the procedure: the first is the collection of body tissue for surgery; the second is the application of local anesthesia and finally, the incision is made and the resulting soreness is treated. There is no need for the patient to remain in the hospital for recovery. The signature clinic doctor and his staff are very caring and compassionate and will work with you every step of the way.
The first part of the procedure consists of gathering up dead skin cells. After a few hours, the incisions will be made and the fat cutaway with a scalpel. Once the incisions are made, the skin will be carefully stitched back together. You will notice some redness for a day or two but overall your incisions should heal quickly and leave you looking beautiful.
The second stage is the application of a local anesthetic. This helps to control your breathing and it also numbs your skin and muscles so that you can operate with little discomfort. If you are having stitches removed from your skin, you will be given a local anesthetic. Your Gynecomastia removal with a Local Anaesthetic procedure should take approximately three to five hours depending on how much fatty tissue is removed. Depending on your own healing schedule, this could be any one of four days.
When the Gynecomastia removal with a Local Anaesthetic procedure is complete, your doctor will advise you of any additional treatments that you may need. Your doctor will tell you whether you will need to have sclerotherapy or liposuction. If you decide that you want to go through with both of these procedures, your doctor will help you determine which one is best for you. These procedures can be quite expensive.
Your skin will continue to bleed as you are removing the fatty tissue from your chest area. In most cases, you can avoid this by taking the medication right before the procedure. You can find many over-the-counter medications that can help to numb the area where the procedure is being performed. Make sure that you ask your doctor if you can take these medications while you are under his/her care to avoid any complications. You don’t want to end up on the hospital floor with an infection because you were careless enough to take some medicine before the procedure.
If you decide to get the Gynecomastia removal with a local anesthetic, it is important to remember that this type of procedure requires that you rest properly after the procedure. Your heart will begin to race, and you will probably experience nausea. The medication that you are put on will work to prevent any problems with that. After the procedure, your chest will hurt for a few days, but you should be able to heal well with time.
