Man Boobs Surgery / Male Breast Reduction

The condition forms when there is an excessive accumulation of fat or an enlargement of breast gland in the male breast region. Gynecomastia condition can severely affect an individual’s self-confidence and lead to serious body-image issues, withdrawal from peers and depression. Unfortunately, Gynecomastia is a condition that cannot be treated exclusively with exercise and diet.

Gynecomastia Causes & Treatment

Both males and females are going to have varying levels of male and female hormones naturally. Man boobs will usually develop when there is a hormonal imbalance in the body. Males that have a higher level of estrogen will be at a higher risk of developing Gynecomastia.

Hormonal imbalances can cause the breast tissue to over-develop and can lead to excess fat being deposited in the breast region. The breast tissue that men have is very fibrous, which means that the fats here can be more challenging to remove. Genetics can also play a significant role in the development of Gynecomastia. Liver disease is another cause that is not uncommon and one of the reasons it is always good to get things like this checked out. It is also not uncommon to be caused by certain medications as a side effect.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How Is Gynecomastia Treated?

    Gynecomastia can be treated using Vaser Liposuction to remove both fat and glandular tissue. A local anesthesia is used to numb the chest region. Then ultrasound energy will be used to help separate the fibrous tissue and fat cells, which are then removed using a small suction cannula.

    What Can You Expect After the Gynecomastia Procedure?

    Downtime is minimal and patients are able to leave the clinic immediately after the procedure. Recovery can take up to 1-3 days and then patients can return to their normal daily routines. Mild swelling and bruising may occur after the procedure; however, a compression band can be worn to reduce these symptoms and help improve skin retraction. Some patients may experience mild scarring as a result of the micro-incisions made during the procedure. Results will show within 6 weeks after the procedure.

    How Common is Gynecomastia?

    As many as 70% of boys during early to mid-puberty may experience issues with gynecomastia, as they adjust to the hormonal changes that naturally occur during puberty. Men of all ages can be affected by this common problem, including those middle-aged and older with men in this age bracket often experience around a 65% prevalence in this condition. We understand this can be a sensitive issue for many men. However, we’re confident we will be able to help make you feel comfortable and help you discover if gynecomastia surgery is a suitable option for you. We pride ourselves on our professional approach and believe we offer the best gynecomastia surgery Melbourne has on offer thanks to our attention to detail, well-run clinic, and experienced cosmetic doctors.

    Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cause Scarring?

    When you are trying to make something like an oversized male chest less visible, it makes sense that scarring is often a concern at times like this, frequently when people are considering male breast reduction. While scars are a likely result of Surgery, they can be minimised. Part of the way we go about reducing scarring is to be very selective about where we make the incisions. Taking advantage of natural skin creases and lines can result in a less visible scar, and our experienced cosmetic doctors will do everything they can to reduce the intensity of potential scarring throughout the process. Small scars will usually fade over time and barely if at all draw any attention. You can always look at scar removal treatments down the line if this is something that bothers you, we provide a range of methods to reduce scarring. If scarring is a significant concern for you discuss this with your doctor to understand what to expect, and what can be done to help minimise it, and if need be deal with it later on if you felt it necessary.

    What if I Have Loose Skin?

    If you have some loose skin already before the procedure, you are likely to have more afterwards as there is now less tissue filling out that skin. If loose skin after male breast reduction is an issue you face though this can be removed surgically with a follow-up excision procedure.

    Gynecomastia Surgery - Are There Any Risks Involved?

    Gynecomastia surgery is a procedure that overall is considered a safe one, like any surgery, it does have some risks to consider. During your consultation we will thoroughly discuss with you the risks involved in having male breast reduction liposuction, and you can decide if it’s something you are comfortable to proceed with having. Our in-depth consultations are one of the reasons we believe we can provide you with the best male breast reduction Melbourne has on offer, so please take advantage of this time to ensure you are both fully informed and are making the decisions that suit you best.
