Many people fail to realise just how common Gynaecomastia is. More than half of all boys develop the condition during puberty, even though it will disappear when they age, and around 1 in 3 older men develop it due to a range of factors. It is important to determine the specific causes for your situation before deciding on a solution.

The male breast reduction procedure can help to decrease the extra tissue that can develop in the chest tackling the dreaded “man boobs” and helping to restore confidence in one’s body. This process is a way to reinstate a level of comfort, and more importantly confidence in your life.

How Can I Get Rid Of My Man Boobs?

Male breast reduction surgery is an effective way of reducing the excess glandular tissue that forms in the breasts, creating a feminine shape and appearance to them. The procedure achieves a more desirable look and shape to the male breast by excisional surgery combined with liposuction.

The frustration and embarrassment that gynaecomastia can cause, especially when someone desires to be topless, are worsened when men undergo a healthy diet and exercise to no effect. Cosmetic surgery looks to alleviate these negative feelings, setting men down a positive body path that can help to boost their confidence levels.

What Is Causing My Gynaecomastia?

While gynaecomastia is often developed during puberty, there are many other factors, such as excessive alcohol consumption and smoking, that can contribute to it as an adult. Some men even experience the condition as a result of prescription medication, steroid use, liver disease or tumors in the brain, testicles and other areas.

Considering how many varying factors there are that can contribute to the development of gynaecomastia, it is vital to be evaluated by a professional to understand the reasons you have developed it. This should be done before any scheduling of a gynecomastia treatment.

When it comes to breast augmentation surgery, the recovery period can vary based on the type of augmentation you have. The two primary options are viabreast implant or a fat transfer. While it is likely you will be able to leave the hospital the same day as your surgery, your individual healing abilities will alter how quickly you can get on with your daily activities.
