GynaecomastiaWhen men develop breasts, the condition is called as Gynaecomastia. Many males during adolescence develop breasts due to hormonal changes occurring at the time. This is called physiological gynaecomastia. A majority of these subside on their own, but in a small minority, they persist. Presence of gynaecomastia could be very embarrassing to the person and affect his self esteem and morale.
There are many other causes for the development of gynaecomastia such as liver failure, testicular failure, chonic medication with steroids, cimetidine ,digitalis etc. It is important that you should get a proper consultation with either an endocrinologist or aesthetic plastic surgeon who can rule out any cause for the condition. You no longer need to suffer this condition as scientific advances in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery allow us to get rid of male breasts without leaving a mark. Unfortunately, there is presently no non-surgical way to get rid of male breasts.
Could You Benefit From Gynaecomastia Correction?
It is possible to remove the gland and excess skin leaving an almost normal looking chest. The scars are not visible if only liposuction is used. In other techniques, the scar is barely visible. This procedure is likely to give a boost of confidence to your personality. A feeling of normalcy will improve the quality of your life. It’s not likely to change your life or the way people treat you. It might possibly improve your confidence and self esteem when you start seeing a better you in the mirror.

The procedureIf the breasts are fatty, it is possible to get rid of the breast gland by liposuction alone. Power assisted Liposuction or Ultrasonic liposuction is preferred as male breasts are more fibrous. This way, apart from a few access ports of less than half a centimeter in size, no other marks are left. It is possible to remove all the fat and leave an even chest. The excess skin contracts in the next six weeks. If the breasts are more fibrous and nodular or if a small nodule is left behind after liposuction, then through a small infra-areolar incision the residual nodule is removed.
What To Expect After Surgery?
There might be bruising and swelling after surgery that should subside in 3 - 6 weeks. You will have a soft and comfortable dressing around chest for firm support. You will also have a tube draining accumulated fluids from each side, if excision is done. The dressing and tubes will be removed simultaneously once the drainage stops. Wounds normally heal in 7 days to 2 weeks. Your plastic surgeon at Aesthetics and the assisting staff will fully attend to your comfort and safety. You will be advised to wear a compression garment for six weeks after surgery. This will allow all the empty spaces to collapse, allow the skin to contact and retract. The skin will also stick to the chest wall muscles.
