Male Breast Liposuction
Do you have undesired chest fat that you would like removed? You could be the perfect candidate for male breast reduction surgery or as its also known, male breast liposuction or a gynecomastectomy.
This surgery is not complex and simply uses liposuction to get rid of unwanted fat in the chest and also enhance loose skin. Overall the appearance of the chest after surgery is smoother and flatter.
Q: The Solution for Gynecomastia
Gynecomastia is a problem that men experience. It is more commonly known as “male breasts,” or “man boobs.” This is a medical condition that can be caused by a range of variables:
- Imbalance of hormones
- Too much androgen or estrogen
- Too little androgen or estrogen
Essentially, this problem causes the male to develop a mammary gland or breast tissue that is full and fatty. This can lead to a feminine look that can significantly affect a man’s self-confidence and self-esteem.
Q: Male Breast Surgery: The Details
This type of surgery is performed while the patient is under general anesthetic. Patients are asleep and do not feel any part of the operation. A small incision is made near the nipple so fat and tissue can be successfully removed. Liposuction is the process used to effectively remove the unwanted parts of the breast that make it large gently.
If skin is stretched during the surgery, surgeons will reposition skin and the nipple for a natural appearance. After tissue and skin has been removed, it will not grow back. Therefore, this is a permanent solution for men that want a flatter chest. It is recommended for patients to stay at least overnight after surgery to make sure all is good and healing has started correctly.
Q: Expected Recovery From Surgery
Recovery from this type of procedure is fairly quick. For example, patients often return to work within one week. Heavy lifting should be avoided for at least two weeks and patients should not play sports for at least one month post-surgery.
Swelling and bruising should be expected after surgery. A compression vest should be utilized 24 hours a day for a minimum of three weeks.
Scarring is a natural part of any surgery. However, due to the minimal incisions, scarring is small and will eventually fade into the skin.
Patients are advised to give their bodies at least two weeks before they can see the full results of surgery. Natural contours of the chest also help to hide scars.
