Aside from swelling and bruising, for Grade 1 and 2, you can expect your chest to be flat and asymmetrical.
Know that this is only temporary.
For Grade 3 and 4, a drain will be placed after the surgery.
The drain will be removed after 2-4days.
Discomforts, slight pain and restriction of movement should also be expected especially on the 1st 24 hours after surgery.
Grade 3 and Grade 4 Gynecomastia is characterized by sagging of the male breast.
To resolve the skin sagginess, Mastopexy is performed.
At Evita Clinic we perform two types of Mastopexy according to the kind of Incision – Areolar type and Anchor type.
The Areolar Incision is ideal for Grade 3 Gynecomastia patients and the Anchor type is for Grade 4 Gynecomastia.
But the type of Incision that will be performed will depend on the patient’s age, concern about the scar and preference.
After 2~3 days after liposuction, It will be much swollen and painful.
It is not the pain that can not withstand, it is the symptom that seems to pull(sore).
As time goes by, you will feel more pulling sensation.
This is a natural phenomenon to be healed.
Bruises begin to develop after surgery and disappear after 2 to 3 weeks.
At first it becomes darkish and violet, and later it becomes yellowish.
It is inconvenient because you can not wash after surgery.
A simple shower is available after 3 to 4 days after surgery.
Before taking a shower, you can apply waterproof bandage to wound area.
Also, after take a shower, simply disinfect and apply ointment.
In case of sauna, enough time should be needed.
If you use the sauna immediately after removing the stitchs, the suture part may be re-opened.
It is usually advisable to remove the stitches after 2 to 3 weeks.
If the incision is wide, it is best to spend about a month. You can also wipe or wash un-operated areas.
Asians has very few keloids. However, it is common for blacks.
People who know that they are keloids often have a normal constitution.
In the case of fat removal, the incision is less than 1cm, so it is not a problem even if it is keloid.
In addition, we use laser to treat patients for free after surgery.
Scars from minimal incision usually heal after 2 weeks.
The scars are reddish at first, but they become pinkish over time and fade over the course of several months.
After the surgery, you might feel impatient.
But do not worry because it will recover over time.
The wound will be determined by your personal condition.
I feel that there are a wide variety of individual differences in performing liposuction of many people.
Some people there are small scars, but some are darker and more visible.
Most of peoples also have scarring that is hardly noticeable.
You are wondering when to remove stitches after you have undergone surgery.
In the case of liposuction, the incision range is small and may vary depending on the condition, but it will be removed within about two weeks.
In the meantime, you will come to the hospital to disinfect. It is about 1 cm and it takes about 3 weeks for skin regeneration..
Liposuction is a way to inhale a growing fat cell.
There is a definite effect because 1 ~ 2L of fat is extracted.
Also, if the diet fails and the other area gets fat again, it does not increase as much as before.
Weight does not go down a lot, but it definitely gets thinner.
When a stomach or hip is heavy due to fat, it can be improved by reducing the weight by liposuction.
After liposuction, special compression garment will be worn for 2-3 months.
This pressure has the effect of not allowing the tissue to protrude due to the tight contraction of the tissue.
Liposuction is a rare complication.
Bruising after surgery lasts 2-3 weeks and sometimes the surface looks uneven, which will be okay after 4 weeks.
Pulmonary embolism (serious complications of small fat cells entering the blood vessels and blocking the pulmonary vasculature) occurs in about 1 in 1 million people, which usually occurs when the principles of surgery are not followed properly.
Also, the probability is less than the probability of dying from a traffic accident. This complication is usually caused by excessive surgery or greed about the dramatic surgery result.
Do not worry if you keep the principle and do not take excessive liposuction.
It is usually possible to live everyday after 2~3 days, but it is recommended to avoid severe exercise for 2 weeks. During the first week after surgery, you may see more swelling than before surgery. After one week, the swelling starts to fall off. However, the appearance of swelling can be finally disappered after 3~4 months.
Immediately after surgery, it is wrapped with a bandage and compression garments. After 1 days, we check the wound & dressing. Compression garments is worn for 2-3 months but it is possible to shower after 2-3 days.
It is not. Since the local anesthetic is administered to the surgical site during surgery, the pain is not severe even after the operation. The next day, you will feel stiff. Of course, if you touch the wound, it will be slightly painful for 1-2 weeks.
The results after liposuction differ depending on the health condition, skin condition, age, weight and hormone status. For example, a person with less skin elasticity, suctions in only the fat of the abdomen and disappears, but the abdomen skin elasticity can not be perfectly corrected. In these cases abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is needed.
If you have a lot of liposuction, you need a hospitalization, but most of cases you can go home on the day.
Insert a thin tube connected to the fat inhaler through a small incision of about 1 cm around the site where the fat will be inhaled. And it is the surgery to remove only the fat under the skin by the negative pressure.
Sclerotherapy is literally treating the blood vessels by hardening them firmly. If varicose veins are severe, they can be hardened and touched like a string (cord), which can cause the skin to feel stretched. However, in this case, it usually disappears gradually after 3 to 6 months.
This pigmentation is caused by bruising, hemorrhage, and inflammation reaction during sclerotherapy, and it usually resolves within a few months. However, during that time, be careful about UV protection and it is helpful to use our laser toning or ointment.
In the case of veins such as the face, it is not possible because of the possibility of adverse effects due to thrombosis. If there is inevitably vein malformation, surgical removal is recommended after angiography.
In principle, it is not recommended to remove cosmetic purpose because all veins play important functions in their own bio metrics. In addition, you can not receive Korean National Health Insurance benefits in this case.
If you have a definite diagnosis of varicose veins due to ultrasound, you can benefit from Korean National Health Insurance. However, there is a limit according to the standard of health insurance corporation such as the number of procedures.
In rare cases, if there is deep vein thrombosis, not all varicose veins should be treated, including sclerotherapy. In addition, if there is a fundamental problem about great saphenous vein, recurrence is frequent even with scelerotherapy, and symptom improvement is weak. In this case, we suggest the surgery.
After the procedure, we wrap your lets for the pressure with elastic bandage. Daily life is possible, but it is recommended that you do not severe exercise for about 1 week.
Sclerotherapy is not an operation but an incision. It do not need anesthesia because it is similar with intravenously.

But in this case, average rate of experiencing capsular contracture is almost 10-15%, so we do not suggest actually.
Only 3-5% of the patient experience the capsular contracture, but there is a possibility of it.

The blood bag (Hemovac) reduces the possibility of capsular contracture.

There is no such result of breast operation causes breast cancer.
But on rare occasion, there is a report about the relation with rare lymphoma.
In 2011, the FDA identified a possible association between breast implants and the development of anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), a rare type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. At that time, the Agency was aware of approximately 60 cases of ALCL in women with breast implants, out of approximately 5-10 million women who had received breast implants worldwide. This included 34 unique cases that were described in the medical literature from January 1, 1997 through May 21, 2010, and additional cases identified by international regulatory agencies, scientific experts and breast implant manufacturers. Based on this data, the FDA cautioned patients and health care providers that women with breast implants might have a very low but increased risk of developing ALCL.
The FDA also posted on this website a detailed analysis of the 34 cases of ALCL in women with breast implants, provided physicians with interim recommendations on identifying and confirming ALCL, and worked with breast implant manufacturers to include information regarding ALCL in the patient and physician labeling.
Because the FDA knew of so few cases of this disease, it was impossible to determine what factors increased the risk. In a report summarizing the Agency’s findings, we emphasized the need to gather additional information to better characterize ALCL in women with breast implants.
Since our 2011 report, we have continued to gather information about ALCL in women with breast implants.
I’ve heard that it is suggested to have an examination every 1-2 years after the breast augmentation. Do I have to do that for real?
Normally, we suggest to have an examination on the operation area every 10 years.
It is recommended to do general breast cancer screening every year.
My breast is asymmetry, and it is so severe. If I do the breast operation, can my breast be symmetry? Is it possible to make my breast symmetry by having a breast operation?
Yes it is possible, by inserting different size of implant for each breast.
If you get implants, exact amount of volume will be inserted and it will last as it is.
In case of fat grafting, it is your own so there are less burden as it is not a foreign substance.
However, Fat Grafting is difficult to predict, require repetitive procedures, and worry about calcification.
Therefore, we do not recommend breast fat grafting in our hospitals.
Liposuction is not meant that the removal of amount of fat.
Removing the 50%, if the adequate fat is removed,
it will be a beautiful body that could reasonably have volume & good shape.
Even if uneven removal of 100%, I Think it is a failed surgery.
Although the sagging skin need an abdominoplasty,
but, the scar is visible, and i don’t like it.
So We use a LASER that is appropriate to plan to increase the elasticity of the skin.
