Male Breast Surgery
When men develop breasts, the condition is called as Gynaecomastia. Many males during adolescence develop breasts due to hormonal changes occurring that time. This is called physiological gynaecomastia. A majority of these subside on their own, but in a small minority, they persist. Gynaecomastia in males is more common than you think. Presence of gynaecomastia could be very embarrassing to the person and may affect his self-esteem and morale.
What You Need To Know?
Male chest reconstruction or male breast gynaecomastia surgery is a surgical procedure to masculinise the chest by removing the chest tissue or altering the nipples and aereole. Any physically fit male who has significantly large breasts, enough to embarrass him is a candidate for surgical correction. We want you to feel comfortable and confident about every aspect of male breast surgery, it’s a big decision, we’ll give you all the information and time you need to think about it. And, we’ll be here, caring for you every step of the way.
1.WHO ARE THE IDEAL CANDIDATES?
Any physically fit male who has significant breasts large enough to embarrass him is a candidate for surgical correction. Male breasts could be mild, moderate or severe. Mild breasts usually have a glandular structure under the skin, made up of fat and fibrous tissue. There is usually no excess of skin. In moderate breasts, along with the gland, there is some excess of skin, which can contract after the gland is removed. In severe gynaecomastia, the excess skin may have to be removed as well.
The traditional technique of removing Gynaecomastia was through a cut under the breast or nipple. This technique has a higher risk of complications such as scarring, inversion of nipple, tethering and saucerisation. Hence we use the more modern scarless technique using liposuction. Through a tiny keyhole we suck the fat and majority of the glandular part of the breast from under the nipple.
2.CAN YOU BENEFIT FROM GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY?
It is possible to remove the gland and excess skin leaving an almost normal looking chest. The scars are not visible if only liposuction is used. In other techniques, the scar is barely visible. This procedure is likely to give a boost of confidence to your personality.
3.WHAT ARE THE RESULTS AND THE OUTLOOK?
Your final result will be visible almost instantly; however, the swelling and bruising will still make the skin look puffy. Most of the swelling resolves by three months.
