Male Breast ReductionThere's a procedure that can help men who suffer from gynecomastia to improve the appearance of their pectoral. Though it may seem like a strange or unusual condition, gynecomastia is quite common. Additionally, there are three grades (Grades 1, 2, 3) of gynecomastia depending on severity. In the most severe cases, the man's pectoral area resembles a woman's breasts.
Men can experience abnormal growth of glandular and fat tissue in their breasts at any age and for different reasons. Hormonal imbalances are the most common causes of this condition in young men. In older men, gynecomastia is mostly caused by the natural aging process. Though gynecomastia can be a complex problem, there's a procedure that is designed to remove fat tissue from the chest to improve the volume of the pectoral area and correct this uncomfortable medical condition.
The ProcedureBreast reduction is done by extracting tissue with suction and VASER technology. First, I make a small incision in the areola. The incision is less than a centimeter long and won't leave a scar or mark. The use of VASER technology guarantees that an appropriate amount of the patient's mammary and fat tissue is uniformly removed. One of the advantages of this procedure is that gynecomastia will not reappear afterwards.
The final result of this procedure is a defined, flat, and firm chest that's attached to the pectoral muscle. After a brief recovery, men feel better about the way their chests look and don't feel self-conscious when going to the beach or pool.
Recovery and AnesthesiaThis procedure lasts an hour and is performed using general anesthesia. After the procedure is over, my medical team and I will place a compression garment on the patient to help keep his chest skin in place. The garment can only be removed to shower. The patient will have three days of medical leave.
After the three days, the patient can return to his work or daily activities. Additionally, he will need to follow these instructions: avoid lifting heavy weight or physical exertion, don't exercise or play any sports until I give you authorization, and keep the chest area clean. The final results will be visible after six weeks and the patient will be left with a natural- and masculine-looking chest. Sunblock must be used if the patient goes do the beach or pool.
