Do you think that your breasts are too large for a guy? If the answer is YES, the condition you have is gynecomastia or abnormal breast enlargement in men. This condition usually appears during puberty and in middle-aged to older men. Gynecomastia may be the result of heredity, hormonal changes, obesity, even tumors or the use of certain drugs like steroids. Male breast enlargement can affect breasts, the entire pectoral area or just the nipple. Actual breast tissue not excess fats are present.
Some men are disturbed with their enlarged breasts that it impairs their self-confidence. Because of the extreme emotional discomfort, some men may avoid intimacy and physical activities to hide their situation. As a solution, the surrounding skin and breast tissue may be removed through male breast reduction surgery. Sometimes, it can also involve liposuction.
Male breast reduction is minimal invasive surgical procedure performed to decrease the size of male breast and ultimately restore its shape. Usually the treatment involves liposuction where a lipo probe device is inserted through a tiny key-whole opening to dissolve excessive glandular and fatty tissue in the man-boobs. The fat is suctioned and finally eliminated from the body gently. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia with IV sedation. This is a "one-day" procedure with minimal post-operative recovery time. Patients undergoing gynecomastia surgical treatment are able to return to their daily routine almost immediately after the procedure. The result of the surgery will be evident after 2 weeks post-operation.
Gynaecomastia surgery is performed by two options depending on the type of excess tissue in the breasts:
Liposuction: Liposuction is performed in case the patient has excess breast fat. The procedure is performed using local or general anesthetic.
Male breast reduction: Male breast reduction surgery is performed for patients with excess breast gland tissue. The cosmetic surgeon performs the surgery under general anesthetic.
Note: Liposuction and breast reduction surgery both are performed at the same time on a patient if he has an excess of both fatty and glandular tissue.
