Gynecomastia is a condition that causes men to have excess fat and glandular tissue. The condition is caused by genetics, medications, and obesity. The primary cause of the condition is the accumulation of fatty tissue in the chest area. While proper diet and exercise can help reduce fat, it will not eliminate the condition completely. Many men with gynecomastia choose to undergo a male breast reduction to get the body they desire.
The ideal candidate for the procedure will be in good physical health. The procedure is suitable for adult males and teens, but it is important that teens breast growth has stabilized, or they may need an additional procedure into adulthood. Candidates should also have realistic goals and a positive outlook about the results. It may be a good procedure for men who have tried alternative treatments that didn’t work.
What is the Procedure Like?
When men have severe cases of gynecomastia, tissue removal may be needed to reach the desired result. This technique may also be necessary for men who have a significant amount of sagging skin. Tissue removal allows your doctor to remove more glandular tissue, excess fat, and skin for the best results. The openings are usually made along the areola or at the natural crease of the chest.
You may be required to wear a support garment after the procedure, and it is important that you follow all postoperative instructions. We strongly recommend you avoid lifting objects that weigh more than five pounds for couple of days. The majority of men are happy with the results of the surgery. Not only do many men have increased confidence following a male breast reduction, the removal of excess fat gives many men the ability to exercise easier. The procedure also allows men to wear better-fitting clothes without having to worry about the appearance enlarged breasts.
