A Guide To Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Jul 18, 2008
One of the major problems for men these days is not necessarily baldness, although it is still a big factor for many men concerned about inheriting this genetic disorder. Hair loss is generally something that cannot be treated without transplant surgery - even this can cause some problems as it is only effective in the thinning hair area, rather than alleviating baldness altogether. This in comparison to Gynecomastia, is more accepted by the public.

Gynecomastia (growth of male breast tissue) is a condition, which can happen to any male of the ages 16 and more. This can be common amongst teenage boys who have a hormonal imbalance during puberty, whereby the breast tissue begins to form. However, this can reduce and disappear after a short while once the teenager has grown into adulthood. In this case, the condition is not severe enough for a male breast reduction (mastectomy) procedure to follow on.

Men who are in need of male breast reduction surgery, are usually ones who have a very high amount of breast tissue formed and actually look like they have breasts protruding from their chest. This can sometimes cause unwanted secretion of milk from the breast and cause great concerns for the mans appearance. This is an unusual condition and one which cannot be dealt with unless surgery is conducted to reduce the size of the mammary gland.

These leave some scarring, which do decrease in visibility as time moves on. Men who do suffer from this tends to try to hide away from the public. Covering up with lose t-shirts or even buy tailor-made male bras. These usually look like vests, designed to hold the breast growth in and reducing the appearance of the breast. Unlike women bras, these do not fit around the cup size. Instead they are pulled over the breasts and firmly, yet without restricting the body, push in the breasts. Normally this would be an ideal option for those who are not too keen on undergoing surgery.

Men who do choose to go under surgery tend to be the ones looking to be rid of the problem altogether. When the surgery is over, patients are advised to lead a healthier more active lifestyle to try and help prevent the same thing from occurring again. Those listed for this surgery will need to have had some preparation beforehand by consulting with a surgeon. This may take some time as you would want to approach a reputable cosmetic surgeon. They are ones who have had five or more years in surgery with two or more years in plastic surgery.

These are offered to men whose condition cannot be prevented or reduced by alternative medical treatment , the condition has stabilised, are of reasonable health and who are non-smokers and non drug users. Normally the men are spoken to about why they desire to have this procedure and how this will affect them in the end. This is where some men can reveal how much this may have lowered their confidence, including what this will do for them once they have had the procedure done.
