Gynecomastia And Man Boobs - Causes And Cures

Aug 20, 2008
Man boobs has become a growing concern. Some men are able to treat the condition without surgery, but others experience extreme cases of Gynecomastia, which leads to surgical procedures to eliminate or reduce the problem, known as man boobs. Man boobs is the enlargement of the mans breast and the condition is caused from hormonal imbalances or sometimes hormone therapy. When there is extreme cases of Gynecomastia involved, doctors often treating the condition differently than they do when man boobs is not so complicated. In this last instance, doctors recommend surgery.

Doctors may have to perform surgery, which the doctor may suggest that you adhere to some tests to rule out some other potential problems, or perhaps avoid surgery. Mammograms are used or breast X-Rays to check for possible cancer, or compositions of the breast tissue.

Once the doctor determines the amount of tissue to remove from the breast area, he will then consider surgical approaches to resolve the problem. Through the surgery the doctor may remove any tissues or fat that has formed around the breast area. Once the fat or tissues is removed, the surgeon will curve the breast so that it forms into the shape that you desire. Any excess skin is then removed as well. The doctor will ensure that your areola, which is the darker area around the nipple, is positioned and is smaller at the outer surface of the central part of the chests axis.

Complications arising from this surgery are rare and minor although with all types of surgery, there are still risks involved. Doctors will consider the risks, which include infections, skin injury, excessive bleeding, etc. Scars are also formed and sometimes even a slight difference in symmetry. Since an extreme form of Gynecomastia greatly affects a person not only physically but also emotionally and psychologically. After getting rid of the physical cause of the distress by surgery, it is also highly recommended to undergo psychological therapy to be completely healed. You may want to seek professional help from a counselor now instead of waiting until the surgery has been completed. You can check your local phone directory, or go online to find a qualified counselor in your area. Don't let your condition get you down so much that it causes other problems to develop. Remember, this is a medical problem and nothing more, so you can overcome man boobs without too many worries.
