MALE BREAST REDUCTION
Enlargement of breasts in male is also referred as Gynecomastia. It is estimated that about 40 to 60 percent of the adult male population is afflicted with women like breasts to atleast some degree. The condition appears when excess fat, skin and glandular tissue, accumulates in the breasts and makes them appear larger.
Causes of Gynecomastia
In 85% of the patients the cause is unknown and requires surgery.
The other causes of gynecomastia are
- Natural aging process
- Alcohol abuse
- Chronic liver disease
- Certain medications
Gynecomastia may affect one or both breasts, and is most noticeable at beach or a pool. For those who are self-conscious about their condition, a plastic surgeon can perform breast- reduction surgery.
Who is an ideal candidate
If you have abnormal amount of fatty tissue on your chest, and are uncomfortable with it, are mentally and emotionally stable, you are a good candidate for the surgery.
The procedure is done under general or local anesthesia. A small incision is made, on the lower half of the areola. Through this incision, all the extra fat is sucked out. In cases when the tissue is glandular than fatty, the breast tissue is also removed.
A pressure garment is worn for 3- 4 weeks after surgery. Many young men feel confident and relieved after the correction.
