“Man breasts” can make any man feel self-conscious and embarrassed. Even young men going through puberty may be affected by this unwanted body issue. With male breast reduction surgery, you can quickly get rid of male breasts and achieve a flatter and firmer chest contour.
More formally known as gynecomastia, male breasts can develop at any point during a man’s life. Due to hormonal changes during puberty, it’s not uncommon for young men to develop some level of gynecomastia. Pubertal gynecomastia may go away on its own over time; however, other factors may trigger gynecomastia well into adulthood. One cause is excess weight gain, which can create the appearance of male breasts. Other common causes include hormonal imbalances, aging, unrelated health conditions, certain medications, and drug abuse, all of which may stimulate breast gland development.
It is important to establish a known or suspected cause of gynecomastia before undergoing treatment. If the cause is not addressed, it is possible for man breasts to redevelop at a later date. However, with proper correction of the cause as well as treatment with gynecomastia surgery, you can get rid of man breasts for good.
While lifestyle changes may help, the best proven and quickest way to restore a masculine chest is with male breast reduction surgery. Gynecomastia surgery requires a small incision either around the nipple areola or in the underarm. Through the incision, any excess fatty tissue is suctioned out using liposuction techniques. Excess breast glandular tissue is also surgically removed, along with any excess skin that is present. Finally, the tissues are tightened and flattened, and the incision is closed.
The results of your surgery will be immediately visible. Some swelling, bruising, and discomfort may take place during the initial recovery period. It is recommended that you wait to return to your normal daily activities for approximately one week after the surgery. Swelling may not fully subside for up to three months, at which point the final results will be visible.
Ignoring any swelling, you should initially be able to see that your chest contour is noticeably flatter and firmer shortly after the surgery. As the swelling goes down, you will be pleased to discover a noticeable difference in how your chest looks and feels. Even though it may take a few months for the swelling to completely subside, male breast reduction surgery is the quickest way as well as the only fully proven way to get rid of gynecomastia. With this surgery, you can achieve the masculine chest shape you desire, eliminate this source of self-consciousness, and feel fully confident in your appearance.
Gynecomastia surgery can help you lose your man breasts fast and quickly restore a more masculine chest contour. To get the results you want, schedule your consultation with Dr. Richard Mouchantat today.
