Man Boobs Surgery

Man Boobs Surgery

Request Consultation

Man Boobs Surgery (Gynecomastia Surgery) has become a very common procedure. The procedure involves remodelling the male chest, removing the excessive development of “man boobs”.

Many men suffer for years with this condition and can achieve life changing results with this simple procedure. Some patients have liposuction alone, while others may require a small incision under the nipple. Most results produce a flat and more masculine chest.

What Are Man Boobs?

The term “man boobs” is used to describe a male breast area that has a larger amount of excess fat and breast tissue. The excess fat and breast tissue causes the male breast to be too large and strongly resemble a female breast. As you may know, this can cause serious emotional problems. Not only do man boobs make the man feel less of a man, it also poses some problems when the man goes shopping for clothing. Finding a suitable shirt that hides the problem can be a little tricky and going swimming in the public pool is often out of the question as well.

What Are the Key Points to Remember About Man Boobs?

Man boobs can be a concern for men of all ages. It is the development of large breasts that take on the appearance of a female breast. Men with gynecomastia are often too embarrassed to take their shirts off at the beach, as they are self-conscious. This often runs in families and is occasionally caused by hormones, but in most cases, it happens for no reason. Often swelling on the male chest is not from excess fat, but by an anomalous accentuation of the mammary gland. There are different reasons for this: hormonal or chromosomal problems, and obesity.

What Causes Man Boobs?

Most men who are dealing with man boobs are struggling with an overweight. A good percentage of these men can get rid of the problem by dieting and exercising, however, there is also a percentage of men that cannot shift the excess fat. There are also additional causes for man boobs, including hormonal and chromosomal problems. Underlying medical conditions usually require man boob treatments through liposuction to get rid of the problem.

How to Get Rid of Man Boobs?

To deal with your problem area, Dr Lanzer may recommend male breast reduction liposuction surgery, better known under the name gynecomastia. Dr Lanzer has performed countless man boobs surgery procedures during his career, so you will be in safe hands.

For most cases, Dr Lanzer will choose a superficial liposculpture. A small incision is made below the nipple, this is the access that Dr Lanzer will use to remove the excess breast tissue and fat. Once excess fat and breast tissue have been removed, the tissue will be sent to pathology for analysis. By analysing what caused the man boobs, Dr Lanzer can give you a better idea of what caused the problem in the first place and how to avoid it in the future. It also eliminates any underlying medical conditions that may cause such a problem. If an underlying medical condition is found, Dr Lanzer will advise you on the next step.

Why Do Men Obtain Man Boobs Surgery?

Many people do not realise how much man boobs can affect the self-esteem of the man dealing with them. Man boobs have always been the source of jokes, unfortunately, it is never that funny for men dealing with this area of excess fat. However, man boobs liposuction surgery can provide the answer to this specific problem area and with cosmetic surgery techniques constantly improving, this procedure has become a lot less invasive.

Who Should Consider Man Boobs Surgery?

Man boobs surgery is currently one of the most common procedures in Dr Lanzer’s clinic. Most men who come in for this procedure have been struggling with the problem for years. They found that exercise and healthy diet helped slightly, but not enough to get rid of the problem all together. By choosing man boobs surgery, men can enjoy a flatter chest.

How Does the Man Boobs Liposuction Surgery Go at the Clinic?

Before Dr Lanzer starts on the procedure, your chest will be marked so you are ready for the male breast reduction procedure. By marking the problem areas on your body, Dr Lanzer will be able to easily target the excess fat. Once the chest has been marked, the nurse will insert tumescent fluid in the area that will be treated. The tumescent fluid will then integrate in the area, allowing the suction process to be performed.

Why Is Tumescent Liposuction Preferred for Male Breast Reduction?

Most male breast reductions are executed with the tumescent technique. Tumescent liposuction is the most common and most popular liposuction technique, since this technique offers some benefits during and after the surgery.

During the procedure, Dr Lanzer will use tumescent fluid. Using tumescent fluid eliminates the need for general anaesthetic, which could have some benefits for patients. In addition to reducing the risk of the operation, tumescent fluid could have a positive influence on the amount of discomfort experienced after the surgery. However, tumescent fluid also has another big advantage, more specifically reduced bleeding.

When tumescent fluid is used, it will seal the blood vessels during the procedure. In addition to reducing the risk, tumescent fluid will also cause less bruising and make the liposuction generally safer. Tumescent fluid also influences the fat itself, because it tends to make the fat a little softer and more even. By doing that, it is easier for the surgeon to remove the fat during the procedure. It also allows the surgeon to remove larger amounts of fat if necessary. Using tumescent fluid also drastically reduces the chance of infections, given the fact that tumescent fluid is an anti-bacterial solution. Tumescent fluid in combination with a superficial liposuction will therefore be the preferred technique of many experienced surgeons, including our own Dr. Lanzer.

How Much Time Do I Need to Take Off Work?

Most patients who have undergone man boobs surgery can get back to work shortly after the procedure. However, we do recommend taking enough time to rest and listening attentively to your body during your recovery. Do not try to force anything too quickly. Even though you can resume work quite quickly, it is recommended not to do any heavy exercise for some time after your treatment. Your body will need some time to heal, so it is a good idea to take it easy for a while.

What Should You Wear After Man Boob Surgery?

Patients will receive a special compression garment after their man boob surgery; this may reduce swelling and can help the chest conform to its new shape. Aside from the compression garment, which must be worn per instructions of the cosmetic surgeon, patients should wear loose-fitting clothing they are comfortable in.

Why Should I Learn More About the Procedure Before Having It?

Before you consider a male breast reduction, it is a good idea to learn more about the procedure from your cosmetic surgeon. When you visit the Dr Lanzer Clinic, Dr Daniel Lanzer will explain the procedure to the patient and make sure he understands the risks involved and the results that could be obtained from getting the procedure. If you should be left with any questions after the consultation, do not hesitate to contact our clinic before your procedure takes place. Being informed is vital for patients, so if you still need additional information before you decide to have a male breast reduction, contact our team via any of the contact methods mentioned on the website and they will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

Topics such as mega liposuction using the superficial liposuction technique and breast reduction were discussed. Hi-Definition liposculpture may create athletic grooves in the stomach area, which has also been featured on television a few times.

Can I Come in For a Consultation For More Information?

Even though we have many information pages on our website, it is still better to speak to our medical staff and Dr Lanzer about this procedure.
