Ultrasound-guided Male Breast (gynecomastia) Surgery

Ultrasound-guided Male Breast (gynecomastia) Surgery

Gynecomastia surgery reduces breast size in men, flattening and enhancing the chest contours. In severe cases of gynecomastia, the weight of excess breast tissue may cause the breasts to sag and stretch the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple).

In these cases, the position and size of the areola can be surgically improved and excess skin may be reduced.

There are two gynecomastia surgery options which are:

  • Liposuction. This surgery removes breast fat but not the breast gland tissue itself.
  • Mastectomy. This type of surgery removes the breast gland tissue. The surgery is often done using only small incisions. This less invasive type of surgery involves less recovery time.

Ultrasound-guided is a more effective treatment modality for gynaecomastia than conventional liposuction as determined by intraoperative conversion to open surgery and subsequent need for revision.

Indeed, this type of cosmetic surgery needs an ultrasound with high intensity and high frequency to select the fats. Ultrasound scans are highly accurate, non-invasive, and well-tolerated by patients.

For instance, the use of the Color Double Head Wireless Ultrasound Scanner SIFULTRAS-5.42 FDA enables the practitioner to overcome obstacles and any accompanying problems, as well as the diagnosis and follow-up of further breast lesions.

SIFULTRAS-5.42 is composed of two heads. As a result, it is more practical and cost-effective than purchasing two separate single-headed probes. The Linear side of the Doppler allows the doctor to assess the more superficial portions of the body, whilst the Convex side is utilized for more in-depth exams.

The Linear side goes from 40 to 100 mm deep, the frequency ranges between 7.5 and 10 MHz. Typically, the linear probe is utilized to visualize breast and vascular applications.

The Color Double Head WiFi Ultrasound Scanner’s Convex probe operates at a frequency of 3.5 to 5 MHz. It has a depth range of 90 to 305 mm, allowing for improved monitoring, examination, and diagnosis.

Ultrasound-assisted gynecomastia can be an effective solution to ending the struggle with enlarged, sagging breast tissue.
