Gynecomastia surgery and male breast reduction
Are you struggling with Gynecomastia?
20% of males during their adolescence commonly develop Gynecomastia. A man’s breast tissue grows and can enlarge into a significant mammary shape that has a feminine form. In most cases, the breast tissue is entirely normal and does not pose a risk to affect your physical health. However, it can impact your self-esteem and create hesitation to participate in daily activities, such as taking off a shirt. Unfortunately, there is no non-surgically method to remove established gynecomastia. Misconceptions of pills, hormones, injections, creams, massages, or exercises deceive hopeful men to get rid of gynecomastia. However, gynecomastia happens for a number of reasons and there is surgery that can permanently remove it.
How to treat it?
Nonsurgical treatments such as exercise to build the pectoral muscles, special diets, and skin creams do not work. If a medical reason for the gynecomastia is identified, then treatment of the underlying health problem can resolve gynecomastia.
However, the vast majority of adult patients affected with gynecomastia will require surgery. Dr. Chen Lee will customize a surgical plan (liposuction, incisions, excisions) to achieve an aesthetic male form. The plastic surgery techniques for treating gynecomastia are varied and are selected based on the individual’s needs.
Surgical Male Breast Reduction
Free yourself from Gynecomastia
After the surgical procedure, small drainage tubes are often placed for a short duration following surgery. The drains are usually removed in the office three or four days after the procedure. A compressive vest is worn for anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks after surgery. Return to work is often possible three to five days after gynecomastia surgery. Depending on the magnitude of surgery it may be possible to commence exercise and fitness regiments at 1-2 weeks following surgery.
Removing your gynecomastia can greatly impact your life. No more accommodating your lifestyle for your breast.
