Solution For Man-Boob Problems - Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Apr 3, 2008
There's a big difference between someone flapping your flabby man boobs around and getting a big handful of newly ripped muscle. Still, you can't expect to see your man boobs disappear with a snap of your fingers or after doing one rep on a bench press machine. If you want to get rid of man boobs you're going to have to be patient and exercise a little self discipline. What follows are a few general suggestions for getting rid of or at least reducing the appearance of your manly bosom.

Gynecomastia, a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men, is common in men of any age; around 50% of men worldwide has this condition. It can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity conditions, disease or the use of certain drugs. Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair your self confidence. Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition.

Although gynecomastia surgery is a very effective procedure, not every man wants to have it done due to several disadvantages. Aside from being a costly operation, the procedure is also painful afterwards and takes quite a while to heal. During the recovery period, the patient can feel a lot of discomfort. Ugly scars, infection and bleeding might also develop after the procedure. But in spite of its many disadvantages, the results are excellent. The breasts are smaller, and the results are seen right away.

There are a lot of instances where lifestyle changes or diet can reverse gynecomastia; in particular, cardio-aerobic exercises and weightlifting can do wonders to gynecomastia. For others, the only choice is surgery. Since it's an outpatient surgery, the patient doesn't need to stay in the hospital for a long period of time after surgery save for a few days for recovery.

Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you. Incision options include a circular pattern around the areola, a keyhole or racket-shaped pattern with an incision around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease or an inverted T or anchor-shaped incision pattern. The incisions are brought together to reshape the now smaller breast. The results of your breast reduction surgery are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover, but be warned of the hefty $2000-$6000 price tag.
