Sep 27, 2017

Gynecomastia (excess breast tissue in men) is a common occurrence in today’s world. Men and boys who hit puberty can develop large male breasts. This appearance of the chest  can cause various self-esteem and social problems such as embarrassment and isolation. However, there are many ways in which this condition can be treated. What exactly causes gynecomastia?

Potential Causes

Natural hormonal changes are one of the most common causes for gynecomastia amongst mature men and boys hitting puberty. Adolescence and old age are the biggest risk factors for gynecomastia. Most of the times, it passes over the period of a few months. Medications for many ailments can result in larger breast growth in men. In rare instances,  recreational drug use and obesity can also cause this issue.

However, there is a procedure known as male breast reduction that can be performed in case the condition has become too much of a bother to an individual.

Why Should You Come In for Male Breast Reduction?

While getting more fit can help diminish the presence of male breasts for some men, sometimes there is overabundance glandular tissue, causing even exceptionally lean patients to see oversized breasts.

Presently, breast reduction is the main surgical treatment for gynecomastia that has enduring, if not permanent, results. Following this surgery, patients generally say they feel good about going shirtless, and there have been reports of improved sense of self-esteem after undergoing this procedure.

In the event that you are awkward or unsure about your breast area and chest, or in the event that you avoid exercising since you are hesitant about showing your chest in the gym, breast reduction is a choice to consider. With the assistance of a qualified plastic surgeon, the method offers sensational contouring.

Treating Gynecomastia with Liposuction and/or Tissue Excision

Today, corrective specialists can treat a developing number of gynecomastia patients utilizing liposuction. It’s important to find the right plastic surgeon for this treatment, one who is experienced in liposuction and has prior credentials and experience performing breast reduction with liposuction.

More extreme instances of gynecomastia sometimes call for surgical tissue extraction to accomplish ideal outcomes. Patients who have saggy drooping skin around the breasts will also need to use this procedure to fix their chest area. Tissue extraction enables a surgeon to get rid of a large amount of glandular tissue and skin that can’t be effectively removed and fixed with liposuction alone.
