About the Gynecomastia | Male Breast Reduction Process
Over-developed or enlarged breasts in men can cause emotional discomfort and impair the self-confidence too.
When the glandular tissue of the male breast swells and becomes overdeveloped, it is called Gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is characterized by:
- Excess localized fat
- Excess glandular tissue development
- Sometimes excess breast skin presence unilaterally (one breast) or bilaterally (both breasts)
Gynecomastia may be caused due to an excess of estrogen or a lack of testosterone, and can occur in babies, teens and older men. Gynecomastia can also be caused by heredity and obesity.
Gynecomastia in older men, can be caused by other issues too such as liver or lung cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, overactive thyroid or hormone problems. Excessive alcohol consumption or illicit drugs may also cause gynecomastia.
Sometimes, gynecomastia is caused by some medications like steroids, ulcer medications, epilepsy medications, digitalis and other heart medications, chemotherapy drugs, antiandrogen medications, antianxiety and antidepressant medications, body building medications or products containing tea tree oil or lavender oil.
The Gynecomastia Surgery Advantage
Gynecomastia surgery reduces breast size, flattens and enhances the chest contours. In severe cases of gynecomastia, the weight of excess breast tissue may cause the breasts to sag and stretch the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). In such cases the position and size of the areola can be surgically improved and excess skin may be reduced. Plastic surgery to correct gynecomastia is technically called Reduction Mammaplasty.
What is Gynecomastia | Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia is a key hole, stitch-less, practically a scar-less and just a two-puncture procedure. Your surgeon will suggest the best technique used after a thorough evaluation of your condition.
In cases where gynecomastia is primarily the result of excess fatty tissue, liposuction techniques alone may be used. This requires insertion of a cannula, a thin hollow tube, through two small incisions.
The cannula is moved back and forth in a controlled motion to loosen the excess fat, which is then removed from the body by vacuum suction. Generally, vaser ultrasonic probes are used which when inserted into the fatty tissue break down the fat cells very gently.
The key to a successful outcome using this surgical approach is for the patient to have good skin elasticity, so as the healing process moves forward the skin conforms to the new contour of the reduced breast.
The incision is then bandaged, and a support garment may be used to minimize swelling and support the new chest contour as it heals. A small incisions are kept open to allow any excess fluid that may collect to drain. They get closed on their own in two days and are fully healed in a week’s time. Generally, gynecomastia reduction takes 1-2 hours.
Excision techniques are recommended where excess skin must be removed to correct gynecomastia. Excision also is necessary if the areola will be reduced or the nipple will be repositioned to a more natural male contour. Incision patterns vary depending on the specific conditions and surgical preference.
Combination of liposuction & excision techniques
Commonly, gynecomastia is treated with both liposuction and excision.
