Gynecomastia procedure and surgery

28th Jun 2017

Nowadays, men will also undergo plastic surgery procedures to enhance the appearance of their bodies. Oddly enough, one of the interventions that men have opted for is breast surgery, which was once a scheme for women only. Having said that, the intervention is usually focused on the treatment of hypertrophy or enlarged breasts among men.
Men have cosmetic surgery done on their breasts to correct any excess volume on their chest area, which causes them to have relatively large man breasts. This is a physical characteristic that is not psychologically acceptable to men. Breast aesthetic surgery involves the elimination of the glandular hypertrophy, fat hypertrophy or mixed type, combination of glandular hypertrophy and fatty tissue hypertrophy.
Usually, overweight or obese patients are affected with fat hypertrophy. Fat hypertrophy, which is characterized by the accumulation of adipose tissues at the chest area or adipomastia, can be treated through a simple liposuction so long as the area does not have saggy skin.
Liposuction is also a sufficient treatment to the combined hypertrophy, eliminating gynecomastia and adipomastia at the same time. However, in cases that gynecomastia is in an advanced stage, the surgical techniques of gynecomastia and liposuction of adipomastia will have to be performed at the same time. The removal of the gynecomastia is carried out under general anesthesia for about one hour, after which, the patient will have to be hospitalized for 24 hours.
Taking all this into consideration, male cosmetic breast procedures can truly enhance a man’s body by providing him with a more masculine chest. Since the recovery period is relatively quick, many choose to undergo this surgery.
