If you suffer from trouble with man boobs, gynecomastia, you don’t have to live with the condition forever. You can take a proactive step with male breast reduction surgery. The operation will flatten out your chest so that you no longer have to live with enlarged breasts. Beyond the physical change, you’ll also feel much more confident and comfortable in your own skin. Let’s take a look at what gynecomastia surgery involves and why it’s worth your consideration.
Men who choose to take control of their bodies’ look and feel with gynecomastia surgery, also called reduction mammaplasty, will experience an enhanced chest contour. The surgery is designed for men who feel that their breasts are too large but adolescents may also benefit from the surgery. If you’re physically healthy, aren’t obese and don’t smoke or use drugs, this procedure is for you. You’ll be given either general anesthesia or an intravenous sedation to ensure optimal comfort throughout the procedure. When gynecomastia is mainly attributed to a surplus of fatty tissue in the chest, the surgeon will make use of liposuction techniques. Multiple small incisions will be made and a narrow tube called a cannula will be inserted to remove excessive fat through a vacuum suction. Excision techniques can also be used to correct gynecomastia. Sometimes, surgeons use incisions to shrink the nipple or reposition it to create a natural looking and feeling surface.
After the surgery is performed the surgeon will apply dressings and/or bandages to the areas where incisions were made. You may also be provided with a support garment or extra elastic bandage to reduce swelling and aid the healing process.
In summary, men who suffer from man boobs can take corrective action without a considerable hassle. Male breast reduction surgery is relatively simple and quick. The procedure will significantly improve your aesthetic as well as your self-esteem. Do you know anyone who would like to eliminate their man boobs or anyone who has undergone surgery?
