Male Chest Enhancement (Gynecomastia)
Some men experience excess fatty tissue in the male breasts, which can often lead to emotional distress, and sometimes even an unwillingness to take off a shirt in public. This increase in tissue is often genetically inherited or hormonal in nature. Excess skin around the chest can also occur after dramatic weight loss. When consulting with gynecomastia patients, our plastic surgeons will take time to understand the areas of concern, and whether the procedure requires attention to the glandular tissue, fatty tissue and possibly the removal of excess skin.
At ICLS we offer the most advanced technologies and innovative surgical solutions of any stand-alone facility in Canada, giving our doctors an exceptional advantage in achieving a desired result. During a consultation, a patient will have an opportunity to create a customized approach with our doctors that may involve one or more procedures, from liposuction, our exclusive Scarless Skin Tightening with radiofrequency, fat transfer or muscular etching.
If there are concerns with the size or projection of the nipple, nipple reshaping can be done as a standalone procedure or combined with Gynecomastia surgery. All surgeries are performed either under a local anesthetic with sedation or a general anesthetic in our fully accredited Oakville clinic.

Aftercare and Recovery
During recovery the patient is required to wear a compression garment, which aids in healing. The garment is worn for 4-6 weeks, during which time the patient should not engage in any strenuous activities for example, exercise, lifting, pushing, etc.
The patient may notice that they are retaining extra fluid; this is normal and will eventually pass through their system. They will also feel discomfort during this time as well; this should begin to subside after ten days to two weeks.
