Gynecomastia is the abnormal development of the breast tissue in men. Also referred to as man boobs, experts have yet to determine the exact cause of gynecomastia, although it is widely accepted that an imbalance between the hormones testosterone and estrogen is a factor.
Man boobs are primarily an aesthetic concern as it non-cancerous and painless. It can, however, cause men to lose self-confidence especially in situations such as swimming at the beach or wearing tight-fitting clothing. There are plenty of ways that can help get rid of man boobs, but the most effective is gynecomastia surgery.
First, it is important to understand the causes of gynecomastia. As mentioned, hormonal imbalance is usually the culprit when it comes to developing enlarged breasts. This imbalance usually occurs during the puberty years, which explains why many teenagers suffer from man boobs. Thankfully, there’s a high chance for teenagers to eliminate their man boobs when they hit their later teen years.
Also another common cause is the use of anabolic steroids used by bodybuilders. Of course not all steroids will cause it, only the ones that aromatize. Anadrol, Sustanon and Dianabol are especially known causes. Some others are weaker stimulators and are dose related.
Gynecomastia is also common among older men because testosterone levels decrease with age. In addition, men taking androgen blocking medications may be at a higher risk for developing man boobs. These medications are used to combat the development of prostate cancer, but one side effect can be gynecomastia due to the reduction in the level of testosterone.
If you are looking to reduce the size of your breasts, then you should consider gynecomastia surgery. Of course, you will have to consult with your doctor to determine whether there are other less invasive alternatives. A surgical operation is usually considered to be the most effective way to improve the appearance of your chest or totally correct man boobs.
Gynecomastia Surgery Procedure
There are two surgical procedures used to eliminate gynecomastia.
- The first is liposuction, which is carried out by our plastic surgeon. This procedure involves the removal of excess fat in the chest area by creating incisions.
- The other is mastectomy which not only involves the removal of fat, but also the breast gland tissue and excess skin to make the chest look firmer.
When you speak to our plastic surgeon they will advise on the best procedure for you.
What’s great about undergoing surgery to get rid of gynecomastia is that you can get your desired results immediately. After a successful operation, you can readily notice the reduction in breast size. The recovery period typically lasts up to 3 weeks, but you can usually go back to work within a week following the operation. This is what makes surgery such an attractive option for those suffering from gynecomastia, as other methods to remove man boobs can take a very long time before you see noticeable results.
Gynecomastia isn’t a major health concern, but it can cause you to have lower self-esteem. If you are too embarrassed with your condition, then it’s time to seek help and look for ways to get rid of man boobs. Eating the right kind of diet and exercising regularly can go a long way in your fight against gynecomastia. Gynecomastia surgery is also an excellent option, but you need to understand both its advantages and disadvantages. It is best to book a free consultation with our plastic surgeon.
