CANDIDATES FOR GYNAECOMASTIA
The surgery is a great option for healthy men of any age, and especially useful for those who have lost weight through exercise and dietary restrictions. Those who are presently obese, drinking and smoking excessively, or using anabolic steroids are first advised to modify their behaviour, lose weight and tone the body with exercise. Men with firm, elastic skin may not require breast reduction surgery at all once their physique has returned to a healthier, trimmer condition.
If male breast issues are still prominent, even after losing weight, gynaecomastia surgery is the best option.
BENEFITS OF MALE BREAST REDUCTION
A more masculine looking chest with improved contour will be the result, and there are a range of life-enhancing benefits.
- Self confidence for improved personal relationships
- Freedom to enjoy shirtless fun at the beach or around the pool
- Look fashionable and stylish in tailored clothing instead of wearing baggy T-shirts
Surgical outcomes are significant and permanent. A stronger looking, firm chest is attractive, and jibes about ‘man boobs’ will become a thing of the past.
THE GYNAECOMASTIA SURGERY PROCEDURE
The goal of the operation is to reduce breast size and enhance the chest contour. An incision will be made either under the arm or at the junction of the skin and areola (ring of colour around the nipple) to remove excess glandular tissue. Gynaecomastia surgery can also be performed in conjunction with liposuction for enhanced results.
In cases where the excess tissue is mostly fat, and the skin is in good condition, liposuction may be all that is required. Excess fat can be removed through incisions that are almost undetectable upon recovery. For patients with greater amounts of glandular tissue a surgical excision of the tissue is required.
The surgery itself will only take between 1 to 3 hours on an outpatient basis. General anaesthesia is administered by a certified staff member, and you will be able to recover from the operation in the comfort of your own home.
