What causes increased breast size in men?
Researchers have shown that men who suffer from increased breast size often have a higher level of the female hormone estrogen in their body. Other causes may be alcohol consumption, steroid use, obesity, or excessive weight loss. If you are healthy and your surgeon has advised you to undertake the operation, there is no need to fear since male breast reduction is a simple procedure which produces impressive results.
The best breast reduction surgery and techniques
There are two techniques that surgeons use to correct breast enlargement in men.
The first technique used:
If the gynaecomastia is a result of fat accumulation, the best technique that doctors can use is liposuction. A thin hollow tube, also known as a cannula, is inserted in the breasts through some minor incisions. This tube is moved back and forth to loosen the excess breast fat. The fat is then removed with the help of a surgical vacuum.
Second technique used:
Also called excision, is recommended for those patients whose breasts have grown as a result of the enlargement of the glandular tissue. In such an operation the nipple and the areola are repositioned. If the patient's breasts are overly large, physicians may combine both techniques for optimal results. Male breast reduction surgery is performed under a general anesthetic so the surgery is painless.
How long does it take?
A breast reduction procedure usually takes up to 2-3 hours depending on the patient.
Recovery after a breast reduction surgery
Recovery from a male breast reduction surgery can take several weeks. Tissues in the breasts may be swollen and some bruising may also be visible. During the recovery period the patient is required to wear a firm Lycra garment to help reduce the swelling - this garment is worn for a period of 3 weeks. In the first month it is important to refrain from participating in moderate or strenuous activities.
