Male Breast Reduction

 In Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

While you might not hear about it a lot, there are many males with enlarged breasts – this is called gynecomastia and can be a huge blow to their self confidence. While up to half of men may experience the condition to some degree, those who don’t want to live with it may find that male breast reduction is the best option. The procedure can help men with enlarged breasts regain their masculinity and feel more confident about their body.

For those who have gynecomastia, male breast reduction surgery is one of the most effective courses of treatment for removing enlarged male breasts. Not only does it remove the enlarged tissue, but it can give them firm, flat contour that can’t be achieved without such a procedure. Here is some more information about the procedure and how it works.

What causes enlarged male breasts?

There are many reasons that men can develop the condition of gynecomastia. For some, it is hereditary, while others find that certain medications can cause the enlarged breasts. It can happen at any age, teenagers and adults alike.

How does it work?

Male breast reduction is a fairly straightforward cosmetic surgical procedure that helps men to regain confidence and have a chest that matches the masculinity they feel. The procedure works by removing any excess fat in the breast region along with excess glandular tissue when necessary. Depending on the severity of it, some people find that a liposuction treatment can help, while others need to have tissue excisions to remove it.

How intrusive to my life is male breast reduction?

For most people, the procedure is a simple outpatient, with the patient having either a general anesthesia or a local anesthesia while sedated. Most people plan to stay out of work for about a week, to allow recovery time and for the soreness and swelling to dissipate. Over the counter pain relievers are typically effective for pain management during recovery. Most patients gradually return to their workout routines about two weeks after the surgery.

Will I have permanent results?

Because excess fat and tissue is actually removed from the body, the procedure is designed to be permanent. That aside, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to help the condition from recurring. Major weight gain can cause gynecomastia to recur, along with steroids, medical conditions, and testosterone drugs among some of the most common reasons.
