Brisbane Man Boobs Surgery
Brisbane Man Boobs Surgery
The Brisbane man boobs surgery is meant to provide a more masculine chest; this through the removal of excess fat deposits from the male breasts. Enlarged male breasts can be a source of physical and emotional problems, even for men who are on their target weight. Below, we have explained a little more about Brisbane man boobs surgery and what patients can expect.
Which Patients Benefit From Brisbane Man Boobs Surgery?
Men who have a feminine chest caused by accumulation of fat and breast tissue could be good candidates for Brisbane man boobs surgery. However, if you are significantly overweight, you will be advised to lose the weight first to see if the problem reduces through weight loss.
Many patients who consider Brisbane man boobs surgery are on their goal weight or slightly above it. In these cases, obesity is no longer a factor, which means the problem would be difficult to tackle through diet and exercise alone.
How Is Brisbane Man Boobs Surgery Done?
Man boob surgery can be executed under different kinds of anaesthetic, depending on the size of the breasts, scope of the procedure on the male chest, pre-operative test results, its complexity, and the preferences of the patient. Local anaesthetic is a common occurrence for this kind of surgery, yet general anaesthetic is an option too.
At the start of man boob surgery, the cosmetic surgeon will make small nicks on the treatment area. He will place these small incisions in a prime location, which means they are usually not visible to the naked eye after the treatment. For most patients, incisions can be made along the areola or in the armpit.
When the small incisions are done, a small cannula can be fed through the incisions underneath the skin. Then, the surgeon can remove the fat through suction. If there is a significant amount of breast tissue in the area, the surgeon may have to excise that excess breast tissue.
Surgical options most suited for your requirements will be discussed before the procedure takes place. It is important for patients to be familiar with these options, as the procedure can involve breast glands, nerves, and other important structures. By informing the patient fully about the technique that will be used, patients know what to look out for during their recovery.

Recovery Tips & Guidelines After Brisbane Man Boob Surgery
It is always advised to take some time to rest after man boob surgery. Even if the surgeon only made some small nicks for your treatment, man boob surgery is still a surgical procedure that has recovery time.
There are some things that can be done to make your recovery more comfortable. For example, our clinic will give you a compression garment that must be worn around the treatment area. The garment will keep side-effects such as bruising and swelling to a minimum, but also re-shape the chest. Your compression garment will have to be worn for the recommended time.
To ensure you recover well from your surgery, you should avoid strenuous exercise or activities post-treatment. Rigorous exercise and activities could lead to complications and may influence the results you have obtained from surgery. Therefore, only resume your regular workout schedule once our clinic tells you it is okay to do so.
At The Dr Lanzer Clinic, we always make sure that our patients are fully prepared for their recovery. Post-recovery guidelines will be provided by our medical team, as well as medications for infection prevention and pain management post-surgery.
Will Man Boobs Return Post-Surgery?
Patients who have surgery for gynaecomastia can enjoy the results for a long time. However, it is vital to eliminate the cause of the man boobs as well as maintain a healthy lifestyle after this cosmetic surgery. If the cause of man boobs is currently unknown, your medical history and the help of your doctor may provide clarity.
While obesity is not always the cause of man boobs, it can certainly contribute to the condition, as more fatty tissue is present in the chest. In fact, a large percentage of patients can eliminate man boobs by losing weight and getting to their ideal weight. That being said, a small percentage of patients will still experience man boobs despite weight loss.
Another common cause of man boobs is an imbalance of hormones such as oestrogen and testosterone. If a man has too much oestrogen, an increase in breast tissue may occur. Hormonal imbalances such as this are most common in puberty, but they can occur when a patient gets older too. Additional contributors are alcoholism, drug abuse, and chemotherapy. All these factors could lead to an increase of breast tissue in men.
The use of certain compounds can increase the likelihood of breast enlargement in men too; this can be seen in men who take certain medications. If the exact cause of man boobs has not been determined, and you take medication on a regular basis, it can be a good idea to check the side-effects of the medication you are taking and discuss alternatives with your physician.
As we mentioned earlier, a good diet and exercise routine are vital to maintain the results from man boob surgery. You can obtain further assistance regarding diet and exercise with your local doctor as well as The Dr Lanzer Clinic.
