What Causes Enlarged Male Breasts?
Excess male breast tissue, or gynecomastia, is a common problem for a lot of men. In fact, all men have some degree of breast tissue, and even those who work out regularly may be unable to get rid of it completely. Though the exact cause of excess breast tissue in males is unknown, several factors may play a role, such as hormonal changes, obesity and the use of certain medications and substances.
Is Male Breast Reduction Surgery Right for You?
Are you considering male breast reduction surgery, but not sure if it’s right for you? The best way to know for sure is by having a one-on-one consultation with one of our experienced surgeons. In your consultation, the surgeon can assess your medical history, give you a thorough examination and discuss your surgery options. In general, however, a man is considered a good candidate for male breast reduction if he:
- Is in good health, with no serious medical conditions
- Is embarrassed by excess breast tissue and skin
- Is at or near a stable, healthy weight for his build
- Has good skin elasticity
How Does Male Breast Reduction Work?
Male breast reduction typically takes one to two hours and is performed as an outpatient procedure. Depending on the amount of breast tissue and fat being removed, the procedure may involve a tiny amount of liposuction (by making a small incision in the chest and inserting a hollow tube to suction the fat out) or a small incision at the bottom of the nipple in order to remove excess breast tissue. Once the extra breast tissue is removed, the surgeon will tighten the remaining breast skin for a smoother chest contour.
What to Expect While Recovering
Immediately after surgery, some patients will have a small drain in each breast to remove excess fluid; these drains will be removed by the surgeon a day or two after surgery. There will be some swelling and bruising on the chest, which will gradually subside after two to three weeks. It is important to rest and limit activities as much as possible while recovering, and use the pain medication prescribed by your doctor to relieve any discomfort. Most patients can return to an office job a week after surgery, or a more physically demanding job after two weeks. Moderate exercise (though no chest or back exercises) can be resumed after two weeks, and more strenuous exercise (including weight lifting, chest and back exercises) can be resumed after four to six weeks. Sun exposure and tanning beds should be avoided for the first six weeks. To avoid darkening the incision scars, apply a sunblock with an SPF of at least 30 when the chest is exposed to the sun for the first six months after surgery.
