Gynecomastia or male breast enlargement is such a condition that results in abnormal enlargement of breasts which is also popular as developing man boobs. Now, this may wear down self-confidence of any men irrespective of their age.
This condition is a result of excessive growth of glandular breast tissues which may occur due to puberty, diet, hormones, obesity, ageing, use of excessive steroids or side effects of a certain specific medication. Usually, Gynecomastia is not a serious problem, but it is very difficult to cope with it in day-to-day life. Getting rid of this condition is almost impossible with dieting and exercises, but undergoing a Gyno surgery will probably help men to elevate this condition.
Different types of Gynecomastia
- Puffy nipple- This occurs due to the presence of excess breast tissues under the nipple.
- Classic Gynecomastia- This condition is a result of the presence of excessive breast tissues and fatty tissues under the skin, that contribute to the enlargement of the breast.
- Fatty Gynecomastia- This is a result of excessive accumulation of fatty tissues under the skin.
- Saggy Gynecomastia- This is the presence of excess sagging skin near the areola and nipple making the breast sag. Usually sagging breast is mostly seen in people who experience weight loss or is undergoing a normal ageing process.
Why do you need a Gynecomastia surgery?
The only cure to Gynecomastia is not losing some weight through dieting and exercise, but man boobs surgery. Only this procedure can help to get rid of some glandular tissues and fats that can lead to regaining prominent breasts.
Male breast reduction surgery is currently the only way to get rid of Gynecomastia that can provide long-lasting effects. There are two most common procedures-
- Gynecomastia through liposuction
- Gynecomastia through tissue excision
On undergoing a man boobs surgery, patients usually feel much more confident in going out shirtless. If you are one of them who wants to get rid of enlarged breast condition, then you must consider this breast surgery from a qualified surgeon who owns experience and prefers bringing the maximum improvements with minimal scarring.
The Gynecomastia after surgery procedure is not at all complicated. You just need to follow some specific guidelines that are provided by your physician.
Treating Gynecomastia with Liposuction:
The male gynecomastia treatment procedure with liposuction is usually performed using local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. It involves using small incision on each side of the chest either at the edge of the areola or within the armpit depending on your requirement. Through these incisions, your cosmetic surgeon will remove the excess fat or glandular tissues to sculpt your chest to a new contour that will look natural to your body.
The post gynecomastia surgery recovery is quite tolerable. Patients are asked to wear a compression garment for the first few weeks after surgery. This garment actually helps in minimizing the swelling and offers support to the healing tissues. Vigorous exercises are limited for about 3 weeks after undergoing the procedure, but you can essentially join your school, college or office after a week or so of undergoing the treatment.
Male breast reduction with Tissue Excision:
More severe cases of Gynecomastia might require gyno surgery tissue excision to achieve the desired result. Additionally, patients who have sagging stretched skin around the breasts are most likely to undergo this approach. Tissue excision usually allows a cosmetic surgeon to remove a greater amount of glandular tissue especially when the skin cannot be successfully treated with liposuction alone.
In this case, the location and length of the incision in Gynecomastia operation are made around the edges of the areola or sometimes in the peri-areolae area or within the natural creases of the chest. A trained and qualified surgeon will take care of the right place of incisions so that the resulting scars are as inconspicuous as possible to make your Gynecomastia surgery successful.
The Gynecomastia after surgery procedure is similar to that for liposuction but it is common for most of the patients to experience some pain, soreness, and swelling for a few weeks. But with proper medication patients feel steady to return to work within one week of the surgery and two weeks to return to usual exercises.
