Male Breast Correction

Women with overly large breasts often feel that their lives are restricted both physically and emotionally. Overly large breasts can be a source of physical discomfort, causing back and breast pain, and can often lead to bad posture. A breast reduction procedure can restore proportion to your body and give you more self-confidence and the freedom to lead the life you want to live.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a condition suffered by many men who find themselves ridiculed for having female like breasts. Male chest reduction treatment (gynecomastia) is becoming an increasingly popular solution for men who wish to restore self-confidence and be proud of their appearance. Gynecomastia surgery specifically addresses the problems faced by men suffering from gynecomastia, which involves the overdevelopment of breast tissue, and can be caused by common medications, Anabolic steroids, herbal or growth supplements, natural or synthetic estrogen hormone derivatives, marijuana, alcohol abuse, chronic liver failure, renal failure and Obesity. Obesity is becoming more widely understood as a lead cause of gynecomastia. Large numbers of fat cells convert the male hormone testosterone into the female hormone oestrogen, leading to the development of female like breasts. Testosterone deficiency can also be caused in many men by natural ageing, which can lead to gynecomastia in later life. Gynecomastia surgery can alleviate the physical discomfort endured and may also relieve social distress related to the gynecomastia condition. Following gynecomastia surgery, men are free to wear fitted shirts and t-shirts and no longer need to be embarrassed about removing them at the pool or the beach. Gynecomastia surgery can offer true freedom and restore your self-esteem.

Is Male Breast Reduction Right for You?

Male breast reduction is suitable for men with enlarged breasts which are causing physical and/or psychological discomfort. If this applies to your condition, you are a strong candidate for gynecomastia surgery.

The Procedure for Gynecomastia Modern gynecomastia surgery is radically improved over older techniques. The gynecomastia treatment involves liposuction to remove fat from under the skin and no longer leaves scarring or requires general anesthesia. If it is deemed necessary to perform surgery to remove gland tissue, only a small scar will be left below the areola. General anesthesia is required in most gynecomastia procedures, and the surgical tools used are inserted through minor incisions. Your gynecomastia surgery will leave you feeling like a new man with a more pleasing shape, and many patients report a newfound self confidence in their appearance following gynecomastia.

Recovery for Gynecomastia Surgery

As anesthesia is used, there is no pain during the gynecomastia procedure, though a degree of swelling and bruising is normal following surgery. Patients may wish to use cold compresses to enhance healing and relieve discomfort, though your Surgeon provides medications that will usually relieve any mild discomfort. Most patients return to work within a week of gynecomastia surgery. The liposuction method of gynecomastia is less painful than more invasive surgery and causes less tissue trauma, leading to a faster recovery and less postoperative pain and stiffness.
