Large breasts look beautiful but only in women. Unfortunately some men get excess fat accumulated in their chest area that causes breast enlargement. Gynecomastia surgery or male breast reduction is an effective procedure to get rid of this condition.
Here we will have a look what gynecomastia is and how the surgical procedure can treat it.
What is gynecomastia?
It is a common condition in which glandular tissues of male breasts enlarge. Most of the male’s experience this condition in adult age due to hormonal changes but the condition prolongs for some of them. A large percentage of men do not require any treatment for gynecomastia but some of them require some effective treatment. The causes behind this condition include hormonal imbalance, malnutrition, metabolic disorders or effects of certain medications. If you think you are also one of them, you should have gynecomastia surgery.
What is gynecomastia surgery?
Gynecomastia surgery is the surgical procedure that reduces breast size, flattens them and improves the chest contours. In some of the cases of gynecomastia, the skin also becomes sagging because of the weight of excess fat tissues. In this situation, the areolas are also resized and repositioned. Gynecomastia surgery is also known as reduction mammoplasty. The procedure can be done using various techniques that are explained below.
Liposuction technique is mostly used for the treatment of gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is primarily caused by excess fatty tissues and liposuction is the best procedure for removal of excess fat. During the procedure, small incisions are made through which tiny cannulas are inserted in the skin. The back and forth movement of cannula breaks the fat, which is afterwards removed using vacuum suction. Liposuction procedure can be performed using various techniques and the advanced techniques are less invasive as compared to the traditional liposuction methods. Laser liposuction and ultrasound liposuction are the latest techniques. These methods use ultrasound waves and laser energy to melt the fat that makes its removal easy.
Excision is actually the surgical technique in which incisions are made to remove excess fat and skin. This technique is effective for those gynecomastia patients who also have the excess skin beside excess fat tissues. In this procedure the nipple is also repositioned and the size of areola is reduced.
Combination of Liposuction and Excision:
In some of the cases, plastic surgeon uses both liposuction and excision techniques to reduce the size of breasts.
Recovery from Gynecomastia Surgery:
Gynecomastia surgery is an invasive procedure and therefore it requires time for recovery but the results are highly effective if the procedure is performed correctly. Complications associated with the procedure can be avoided by selecting an experienced plastic surgeon and following his pre and post-surgical instructions. However, there are certain temporary side effects that are common and can be resolved by using prescribed medications. These side effects include swelling and bruising.
