Male Breast Reduction

Male Breast Reduction

February 19, 2014 by Grainne Farrell0

We always seem to be talking and woman and their breasts, but what about men?

Up to 70 percent of men in early to mid-puberty experience a condition called Gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is when breasts become enlarged in boys or men. It is usually the result of a hormonal imbalance or weight gain and typically occurs during mid- to late-life. This condition often causes low self-esteem and depression. Now with Lotus Medical International, we have found an affordable and safe way to treat this common problem in men.

By sending photos and a brief medical summary to us, we will ask one of our qualified plastic surgeons to determine whether male breast reduction surgery is needed. The procedure involves removing fat and or glandular tissue from the male breasts, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured.

Male breast reduction surgery can be done by the surgeon cutting and removing the tissue or by using liposuction. In a typical procedure, the incision is made on the edge of the areola and will be barely visible once the incision has healed. The surgeon removes the excess glandular tissue, fat and skin from around the areola and from the sides and bottom of the breast. If liposuction is used to remove excess fat, a cannula (a small metal tube) is usually inserted through the existing incisions.

You’ll be swollen and bruised for after surgery but since the surgeon will require you to spend 1 week in Thailand for recovery, by the time you return home you will be well on your way to looking and feeling great.
