Man boob surgery (also known as gynecomastia surgery) has become a very common procedure that involves remodelling the male chest, removing the excessive development of “man boobs”. This can involve the removal of glandular tissue, fatty tissue, or both depending on the composition of the breast.
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 excision, which involves making an incision to remove breast tissue. 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 cause an enlargement of the male breasts, causing them to resemble female breasts. In turn, this can cause serious emotional problems. Not only do man boobs make the man feel less of a man, but 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 quite self-conscious, stopping them from taking their shirts off at the beach. 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.
How To Get Rid Of Man Boobs?
To deal with your problem area, our surgones may recommend male breast reduction liposuction surgery, better known under the name gynecomastia surgery.
For most cases, our surgeons will choose a superficial liposculpture. A small incision is made below the nipple, this is the access that the surgeon will use to remove the excess breast tissue and fat during gynecomastia surgery. 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, the surgeon can give more insight into 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, the surgeon will advise you on the next step.
As mentioned briefly already, the causes of excess male breast tissue and fatty tissue are many. Medical problems such as liver disease, hormonal changes, and a hormonal imbalance can certainly contribute to the condition, but so can abusing anabolic steroids as well as the long-term use of certain prescription medications. It is important to be honest with your cosmetic surgery about your medical history, so that a suitable treatment option can be provided.
The results of male breast reduction surgery are long lasting, but patients must avoid significant weight gain in the future. If the patient is prone to the accumulation of stubborn fats, then a similar problem could occur in another area. If you need additional assistance after or before your surgical treatment to maintain a healthy lifestyle post-procedure, be sure to speak to our surgeons about the options.
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, cosmetic 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 quite a common procedure at our clinic. Most men who come in for this procedure have been struggling with the problem for years. They found that exercise and a healthy diet helped slightly, but not enough to eliminate the problem and to reduce the breasts to the right size. When weight loss is not sufficient to tackle the problem, this procedure could provide a solution. By choosing man boobs surgery, men can enjoy a flatter chest.
What Can I Expect From Man Boobs Liposuction Surgery At The Clinic?
Before the surgeon 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, the surgeon can 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 into 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, the surgeon 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. This fluid clearly reduces some of the bleeding risks, but tumescent fluid can also provide a reduction of 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 superficial liposuction will therefore be the preferred technique of many experienced surgeons.
Do I Need To Stay Home From Work After Tumescent Liposuction?
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 or heavy lifting for some time after your treatment. Your body will need some time to heal, so it is a good idea to take a rest for a bit.
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 surgery, patients should wear loose-fitting clothing they are comfortable in. The area surrounding the nipple can be sensitive for several weeks, so it is important to cater to that sensitivity during your recovery.
