Gynecomastia in Raleigh, NC

Gynecomastia is the medical word used for breasts in men that are overly large. It is a condition that can produce a female-like chest look due to the increase of growing breast tissue. In many cases, gynecomastia is due to an underlying hormonal problem. This condition can also be the cause of certain prescription drugs and medications, steroids, weight gain, or genetics. Adolescent young men and adult men with this issue often feel self-conscious, most commonly in circumstances where the chest is exposed such as by the pool or in the gym. Raleigh, NC plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle offers surgical breast reduction for men who have gynecomastia. This surgery has a positive success rate. It is known as one of the more popular cosmetic treatments for men at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center.
This type of breast reduction is a procedure for men with overly sized breasts that cannot be treated with medications or diet. If you feel bothered by the size and shape of your chest, and are healthy and at a good weight, you may benefit from male breast reduction surgery by Dr. Lyle at Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center. Adolescent teens may also benefit from gynecomastia surgery; however, an additional procedure may be needed later during adulthood if excess breast tissue continues to develop. During your first appointment with Dr. Lyle, he will help you plan your treatment and discuss the chances of moving forward with surgery to repair the condition.
A form of liposuction is generally used during male breast reduction surgery. While using general anesthesia, liposuction is utilized to remove excess fat tissue from the chest wall. Next, any lax skin will be carefully trimmed away to create a taut appearance, and then the nipple area and surrounding areola will be placed into a proportionate position. In most cases, this treatment strategy requires a small incision in proximity to where the glandular tissue has formed. Once the fat and loose skin have been appropriately handled, Dr. Lyle will pull together the existing skin.
What To Expect
At the conclusion of gynecomastia treatment, your chest will be supported with a medical garment to help control swelling, bleeding, and bruising. In advanced cases that utilized a more complex approach, a drainage tube may be properly positioned to assist with fluid buildup. The results following this procedure are immediately visible and most patients are extremely excited with the physical transformation. The incisions made during surgery need time to heal and scarring is usually barely seen. You can get medical clearance from Dr. Lyle to incorporate exercise and strength training, which will help accentuate the surgical results.
Dr. Glenn Lyle Plastic Surgery Reviews
Could not asked for a better doctor to do my tummy tuck. Everyone in the office is wonderful along with Dr. Lyle.
Dr. Lyle performed a reduction/lift on me after another area surgeon totally screwed it up.. He was amazing and the results are breathtaking.. doing revision surgery is VERY HARD.. His gentleness with me, explaining everything.. taking time to talk to me beforehand and video talk to me just to make me feel confident meant everything.. I HIGHLY recommend him.. and his staff.
I went to see Erin for Botox. She is a WONDERFUL injector. She knows exactly what you need and shares her expertise with you. She has a soft hand, makes sure you are comfortable and gives you the best results. The front office staff are a joy. They are friendly and knowledgable. I highly recommend Dr, Lyle's office!
Dr. Lyle, You are the best Plastic Surgeon! Thank you for the superb surgical artistry with my Breast Mastopexy. You have changed my life and I wish I didn't wait until I was 52. How do I begin to let you know how much I appreciate what you did for me? You actually gave me back my self-image. I think, without realizing it, I had lost it for a while. I had become so self-conscious of my breasts that I felt that was all people saw when they looked at me. I can't get over the difference!! It's like night and day! You have quite a gift. I'm thrilled with the results. No more neck, shoulder or back pain and can now begin working on my posture (girls out). I am three months post-op and over the moon about my results. So grateful! Lastly, I want to let you know that your staff is the BEST (as if you don't already know that). They were all friendly, courteous and accommodating. I never once felt like just another patient in your office. Thank you!
Dr. Lyle did plastic surgery between my toes removing tissue after a poisonous spider bite and while he was looking over my spider bike, he noticed something on my face he was concerned with, something dermatologists had been looking at for 8 years. It was Lentigo Maligna Melanoma, he just may have saved my life. He did a biopsy and surgery within a week! He care, he goes above and beyond, such a wonderful bedside manor. So calm, knowledgeable, absolute perfection in his surgery on foot and especially my face/lip... cannot say enough good things about him. I have had weight loss surgery, and he will be the person I have called to do some abdominal reconstructive surgery. He is the best and I have recommended many people to him over the years, they too were so happy with their procedures. Best of luck to you, Dr. Lyle is your doctor for sure!
