Gynecomastia refers to male breast surgery. The majority of cases have an unknown cause, and despite being a source of embarrassment for many it's rarely discussed. The presence of this breast tissue causes them to be self-aware of their chests and leads them to avoid wearing tighter T-shirts or going bare-chested at the beach

The problems can affect teenagers as well as pensioners. It can be triggered by certain medications, steroids, and illicit drugs as well as medical conditions such as liver disease and certain cancers. 

The breast tissue can be fibrous(glandular), fatty or mixture of both. In addition to this, there may be an excess of skin that needs to be excised. During the consultation,  a full assessment will be made and the appropriate treatment plan made

What is Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynaecomastia Surgery is performed under general anesthetic

It does not involve an overnight hospital stay and you will be able to go home the same day

If the problem is mainly fat, then liposuction alone will be sufficient to remove the excess tissue. The incisions will be hidden under the armpit and in the areola. 

If the issue is a mainly fibrous gland, then an incision will be made on the lower aspect of the areola and the gland removed. 

A combination of fibrous and fatty breast tissue will require an approach that includes both liposuction and direct excision of the gland

The approach to managing excess skin will depend on how much skin excess there is. For most cases of skin excess, an incision around the nipple and removal of skin in the shape of a doughnut ring is sufficient. If the skin excess is more significant then a more radical skin excision will be required leaving a longer scar and the replacement of the nipple to its original position as a skin graft

In each operation, Dr. Faisal will be mindful of not removing too little or too much gland. Of this procedure is performed by inexperienced hands then the visible signs of under and overcorrection are all too obvious

What Is The Recovery Following Gynecomastia Surgery?

Following the procedure, you will awaken with a compression garment around your chest. The dressings underneath the garment will be minimal unless there has been  asking graft of the nipple, in which case the nipples will have a small piece of sponge protecting each one

Gynaecomastia surgery is not particularly painful. This is because the surgery does not involve injury to the muscle, and staying in the superficial layers of the chest is less painful. Pain killers used during the procedure will limit the amount of pain you will feel. Liposuction can be a little bit more painful that excision alone, but this is well tolerated

You will be discharged home later that day, with antibiotics and pain killers

Most patients are surprised at how little the surgery impedes their normal life. 

You can shower with the dressings on as long as you dry them with a hairdryer on a low heat afterward.

Dr. Faisal will review you at 1 week. This will be to review the wound in most cases, and also to perform a graft check on the nipple if this has been performed

Dr. Faisal will then review you again at 2 weeks and 6 weeks

Patients are normally back at work within 3 days 

Dr. Faisal normally recommends avoiding the gym for 3-4 weeks

The compression garment will have to be worn for 6 weeks. This is to minimise the swelling

How Can I Prepare For The Procedure?

Taking Arnica Tablets one week leading up to procedure can help reduce the bruising

Smoking is detrimental to wound healing. Stop smoking 3 weeks before the operation

Dr. Faisal will only operate on patients with a BMI< 32

If you are taking blood-thinning tablets such as aspirin, warfarin, and Plavix, they will need to be stopped 1 week before the procedure

Medical problems such as Diabetes will cause wound healings, so Dr. Faisal will need to be notified

Medications such as steroids can cause wound healing problems, so Dr. Faisal will need to be informed so that an appropriate regimen can be tailored

I had breast augmentation surgery with Dr Faisal and I honestly couldn’t recommend him enough. The whole process from consultation to aftercare appointments was professional, caring and to the highest standard. He listened to what I wanted and the results are incredible. I would have any future treatments done by Dr Faisal and would send anyone I know to him also.

Been looking for doctors over years now both in Dubai and India. Never felt fully comfortable with anyone to go forward with the procedure, then I came across Dr. Faizal, found him while I was doing research online and read a lot of positive reviews. Went down for a consultation, a really gem of a person. Immediately felt comfortable, he explained me everything in detail, assured me and got exactly what I wanted and the price was reasonable as well. The hospital the surgery was held at had the best services and staff as well. They took care of everything and made me feel safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. Came back home the same day, I'm at 6 weeks post op now, and the healing is wonderful and now I feel much more confident, all thanks to him. If anyone is looking for a breast augmentation, I would definitely suggest to go for a consultation with him and decide for themselves.
good choice

Having done a lot of research and looked around Dubai for the best possible option for us, we found Dr Faisal, and I'm so glad we did! The non judgemental and honest advice throughout as well as his pre and post op care is incredible and has been there every step of the way for me. Thank you so much Dr Faisal for everything :).

I came to Dr.Faisal not sure of anything. I wasn’t happy with my body as I had a lot of excess skin due to massive weight loss. I was scared of the idea of a surgery, so came in hoping for an alternative. Here I am months - 3 months post my surgery, wearing a pair of jeans that would have never fit me before. I had a lower body lift surgery done, and I must say my results are amazing. My body has changed so much, and I am very very happy with the way I look now. Dr.Faisal is a great doctor. He will make sure you are aware of everything before and after the procedure and is always there for his patients. My favorite trait about him is that he is always available. Being a patient who has low pain tolerance, and someone who worries a lot, I would always call him. I would have a lot to ask before and after the surgery- and he was always there. It didn’t matter what day or time it was, he made sure to help with every little thing and I am very grateful for him. Thank you doctor, I can now sit without having layers of my stomach falling down, I can now wear my clothes much more confidently and can finally say I love my body.

I can’t recommend Dr Faisal enough, he gets me the results I want every time. He answers all of my questions in depth and explains how and why he does things and makes me feel comfortable. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!

Two words to describe my experience with Dr. Faisal: life changing. I had a breast reduction and it has changed my life! The procedure itself was painful for the first 2 hours and much to my surprise I was ready to go home only 4 hours after waking up and ready to return to work only 3 days later. My back, neck and shoulders feel great, my posture is better and I couldn't be happier! I recommend Dr. Faisal and the surgery 100%, my only regret is not finding him 10 years sooner! Thank you Doc!!

Dr Faisal is a skilled surgeon who is extremely meticulous and I would highly recommend him. He has a pleasant and calm demeanor which puts you at ease. He looks at the whole person and what they want to achieve and relays realistically what can be done which helps set the right level of expectation from the outset. He shows compassion throughout the process which makes you feel like you are in good hands. Overall Dr Faisal exceeded my expectations and I am so pleased with my results!
