Pain and discomfort after gynecomastia surgery can be minimized.

Pain is subjective. Each individual has their own perception of discomfort. Dr. Bermant takes the comfort of his patients very seriously. He has evolved techniques to minimize pain and discomfort with his surgical sculpture.

Many different factors contribute to comfort after surgery.

Sedation and anesthesia are an art Dr. Bermant uses to minimize discomfort during and after gynecomastia surgeryAnesthesia
Anesthesia techniques can preempt pain. Dr. Bermant has evolved his Tumescent Anesthesia with Sedation to an art form. Waking up from surgery comfortable is the start of the process. Each patient's tumescent technique and sedation are individualized for the best operative experience. Special medications minimize nausea. We ask each patient to help us after surgery by limiting vertigo effects of travel motion by staying in the Richmond region until the day after surgery.

Dr. Bermant's precise gynecomastia surgery can minimize pain and discomfortSurgery
Gynecomastia surgery can take many forms depending on the problem, preferences and skill of the surgeon. Dr. Bermant has evolved his surgical sculpture to minimize bruising, swelling, and trauma. By his adaptive Dynamic Technique, he minimizes tissue injury with precision sculpture. That is how he is able to post tissue evolution pictures so soon after surgery.

No Drains
Dr. Bermant does not typically need drains for his male chest sculpture. No drain tubes increases patient comfort after surgery.

Dr. Bermant uses special dressings and a compression vest after surgery to minimize swelling, bruising, and increase comfort. Dr. Bermant prefers to individually fit his patients' compression vest. He has worked with compression vest manufacturers to modify and improve garment comfort for his patients.

Less Than One Day After Surgery
The very thin transparent dressings help protect the healing tissues and permit limited showering after 24 hours. Here is a patient with unilateral (one sided) gynecomastia with the dressing on the left chest only (more about this patient.)

What you do after surgery has a great bearing on comfort.

We need our patients to become part of the team to optimize results. After Dr. Bermant evolved his surgical sculpture techniques to have such little swelling and bruising as seen on these web pages, small factors can influence the result. Understanding aftercare and limitations of activities is important. Comfort is Nature’s way of letting you know what a recovering body will tolerate. Push healing tissue too far and you will injure it causing further damage, discomfort, and swelling.

Each of Dr. Bermant's patients is given a prescription for strong pain medication. Before surgery we ask that they get that medication and some Tylenol (Acetaminophen). However, most of our patients seem to need just regular non-prescription Tylenol for comfort after surgery. Our patients typically say they feel sore like they just had a heavy work-out.
