What Is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition in which males develop enlarged breasts, often caused by hormonal changes or the intake of medication such as steroids. In fact, it is not uncommon for healthy teenage boys, usually around 14 years of age, to have this problem for one to two years because of hormonal changes. It usually goes away after puberty. In some men, being overweight can cause their bodies to produce too much estrogen, resulting in gynecomastia. Sometimes, the cause of gynecomastia is never identified. Gynecomastia can affect a man’s self-esteem and even cause emotional distress. Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy just to hide their condition.
The Male Breast Reduction Procedure
With modern plastic surgery, gynecomastia can be effectively corrected through the removal of excess fat, breast tissue, and skin. If the excess fatty tissue is the cause of a patient’s gynecomastia, liposuction will be the primary method of treatment. If the patient has excess glandular breast tissue or excess skin, it will be surgically excised. Following the removal of excess skin and tissue, the nipple is repositioned to give the chest a more natural masculine contour.
Is There Scarring After Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
Most incision scars resulting from the surgery are concealed within the chest’s natural contours, though some may remain visible.
