All You Need to Know About Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia is the excessive development of male breasts. This occurs due to an increase in the size of breast tissues and deposition of fats around the breast. Some cases of gynecomastia resolve on their own while others need plastic surgery to re-contour the body, enhance breast shape and reduce breast size.

The common sign of this condition is a lump beneath the nipple. It is imperative to note that gynecomastia is not a sign of cancer, but your doctor needs to examine you for an exact diagnosis. Gynecomastia mainly affects one’s appearance and as a result it may lead to low self-esteem.

What Causes Gynecomastia

There exist superstitions that gynecomastia is caused by physical inactivity; hence it can be quickly resolved through bodybuilding exercises. Science has proved that this is not true. As mentioned earlier gynecomastia is a result of enlarged breast tissues, and the only way to get rid of them is gynecomastia operation.

It Is Essential to Diagnose Any Underlying Condition Before Surgery

If you have an underlying condition in your breast, it is sage to get treatment before progressing to surgery. The leading cause of this gynecomastia is hormonal imbalance. Balancing hormonal levels can halt overproduction of male breast tissues and stimulate the reduction of the existing tissues.
On the other hand, an infection in your breast can result in swelling and make them appear enlarged. Also, breast enlargement in men may be as a result of specific medications, thus stopping the treatment will reverse the condition. However, numerous cases are not as a result of medication or infection. Therefore, they can only be corrected through surgery.

Two Standard Gynecomastia Treatment Procedures

There are various methods that your surgeon can utilize to complete the operation. The best type of operation will be determined by the size of breast tissues and your likings. If your surgeon prefers mastectomy, he will get rid of your breast gland tissue. This non-invasive treatment is used when the amount of fatty tissue involved is relatively low. The recovery period in this type of treatment is much shorter.

The other option is liposuction. This is an invasive method that seeks to get rid of the fat cells around the chest area. Patients who have undergone this type of operation takes relatively longer to recover.

I was so pleased with the honesty and concern for my best interest that not only did the Dr. provide but also Rosie. They want you to be completely happy with your results and offer an honest opinion of what procedures will help you obtain that result.

The doctor is very nice as well. Also my boy did not react well to one of the medications and Dr. Zavala kept me longer to make sure I was ok and the nurses kept a close eye on me. They were all so sweet. I am very thankful for that!
