Sometimes it does not matter if you have a slight overweight or not, man boobs can occur despite the presence of overweight. A large amount of men can suffer from gynaecomastia, better known under the name man boobs. In order to solve this particular problem, many of these men opt for man boobs liposuction surgery.

What Can Cause Man Boobs?

Most men who suffer from man boobs will find the cause in overweight. However, overweight is not always the cause of man boobs, given the fact that they may develop for other reasons as well. For example, another common cause of man boobs is a hormonal imbalance. The hormonal imbalance will start an abnormal growth of glandular breast tissue, which means that clear man boobs will start to show.

In addition to hormone imbalances, there could be other reasons for male breast growth. Additional causes for the abnormal growth of man breasts are excess alcohol consumption, drug use, medical conditions such as liver failure and cancer, genetic predisposition and dramatic weight loss.

Because of the fact that there can be many reasons for the development of man boobs, you will undergo a thorough psychical before Dr Lanzer will proceed with man boobs liposuction surgery. Once the cause of the abnormal breast growth has been determined, a proper cause of action can be taken.

Am I A Good Candidate For This Procedure?

To answer this question, it is always better to book a consultation at our clinic, given the fact that there are a number of possible causes for abnormal breast growth. If you are a good candidate, Dr Lanzer will inform you about the procedure and the next possible course of action.

What Can You Tell Me About The Procedure Itself?

Man boobs liposuction surgery can be executed in a number of ways. The procedure is mostly done under general anaesthetic and can take around 90 minutes or more. During the procedure, Dr Lanzer will make a small incision around the areola, better known as nipple. Once this is done, traditional liposuction methods will be used to get rid of the excess fat.

When the surgeon needs to remove a large amount of breast tissue and excess fat, there could be a need for a bigger incision. With bigger incisions, there may be a need to reposition the nipples. If this is a possibility, Dr Lanzer will convey this to you before the procedure.

The recovery period after man boobs liposuction surgery is usually not that long. The patient can be required to stay overnight and needs to avoid any heavy exercise or lifting for approximately six weeks. The patient will also be given a tight garment that will have to be worn for some time after the operation.

When you come in for your consultation, Dr Lanzer and the medical team will inform you about your procedure and your expected recovery time. There will also be a follow-up, so Dr Lanzer can check your progress.

Can Man Boobs Come Back After Surgery?

As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, there is no reason why man boobs should return. However, we do need to mention that some medication can cause the breast area to enlarge again. In order to avoid this problem, please convey your concerns to your physician before taking any type of medication.

What Are The Benefits Of Man Boobs Liposuction Surgery?

Man boobs is a problem that occurs often in Australian men, so it is no surprise that the male breast reduction is a common procedure at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. The case study above is a prime example of how gynaecomastia (man boobs) can affect the physique of a man, and make them appear more feminine. Contrary to popular belief, this problem is not always caused by obesity, because some men suffer from man boobs due to genetics or hormonal imbalances during puberty, after which the man boobs remain. For these patients, a male breast reduction could provide the solution.

During a male breast reduction, a cosmetic surgeon can remove excess breast tissue and fat from the treatment area. The goal of the procedure is reshaping the patient’s chest and providing an overall manlier physique. For some patients, the removal of fat is enough, but in the case study above, the patient also needed an additional procedure to remove the excess breast tissue that was affecting the shape of the patient’s chest. To maintain the results he obtained from the male breast reduction, the patient will have to exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet. However, if a patient does not maintain a healthy lifestyle, persistent fats could return and affect the appearance of the chest.
