Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Men who deal with abnormally large breasts usually get embarrassed to go half-naked on the beach. They are not even comfortable to discuss the issue and take steps just to hide it. Indeed, large breasts affect their lives negatively. In Gold Coast, male breast reduction surgery is one of the most common procedures for men for the reason that an enormous number of males suffered from Gynecomastia.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is an abnormal growth of the glandular tissue of the male breast. It can affect one or both breasts. Gynecomastia may occur during infancy and puberty in normally-developing boys.

Causes of Gynecomastia:

  • An imbalance of the hormone levels in the body, an excess of estrogens (female hormones) compared to androgens (male hormones)
  • A side effect of numerous medications, such as medication for heart disease or anti-ulcer drugs
  • Excess alcohol intake
  • Drug abuse
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Cirrhosis of the liver
  • Chronic kidney failure
  • Lumps or infection in the testicles
  • Klinefelter’s syndrome, a rare genetic disorder

The male breast reduction surgery corrects Gynecomastia by removing the excess fat and breast tissue in the male breasts through liposuction and skin and tissue tightening methods. Normally, the surgical procedure takes about an hour to complete. The breast reduction starts with a general anesthesia injected to the patient. Second, the surgeon will make an incision around the nipple or underarm.  Third, excess fat will be removed. After the fat removal, skin removal might be also done to create a better contour. To verify if you can be a candidate of breast reduction operation, our experts will carry out a medical assessment of the possible causes of the enlarged breast tissue. If the problem cannot be corrected with lifestyle alterations, a surgical procedure might be regarded. To be considered, you must be physically healthy, have a stable weight and a non-smoker.
