Gynaecomastia is abnormal enlargement of breasts in men. Surgery for gynaecomastia or breast reduction for men is the surgical correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men.

It can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity conditions, disease or the use of certain drugs.

Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair your self confidence. Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition.

Gynecomastia is characterized by:

  • Excess localized fat
  • Excess glandular tissue development
  • A combination of both excess fat and glandular tissue
  • Gynecomastia may be present unilaterally (one breast) or bilaterally (both breasts)

Surgical correction of gynecomastia is best performed on:

  • Men whose condition cannot be corrected through alternative medical treatments
  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Non-smokers and non-drug users
  • Men with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for improving the physical symptoms of gynecomastia

Surgical treatment to correct gynecomastia may require incisions. The incision lines are normally concealed within natural contours within the areola.

When the procedure is complete, dressings or bandages will be applied to the incisions. An elastic bandage or a compression garment may be worn to minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal.

A small, thin tubes may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect. These are removed when the collection is minimal

This procedure may need one to two days of hospitalization and a week of rest.

The final results of breast reduction in men are permanent in many cases.

However, if gynecomastia resulted from the use of certain prescription medications, drugs including steroids or weight gain you must be fully free from these substances and remain at a stable weight in order to maintain your results

Although all scars are permanent, hey are hidden within the normal contours of the areola. Your improved body will likely enhance yourself image and confidence whether in a shirt and a tie or baring your chest at the beach!!!!!!!!
