Gynaecomastia is a condition where male breast tissue is swollen and tender. This type of condition is treatable with our male chest reduction procedure. As 1 of the 2 types of male surgery that we offer, a male breast reduction procedure utilises the efficiency of liposuction as a surgical technique to reduce the size of the swollen breast tissue. Gynaecomastia is a common condition for men, with up to 60% of men suffering from this condition. Now, we give men the chance to be rid of this condition and enjoy a sculpted upper body.
Am I an Ideal Candidate?
Liposuction is not a primary means of losing weight and should never be considered as such. If you are in healthy shape and looking for a feasible solution to sculpt your body, liposuction is the answer for both men and women. Men who suffer from gynaecomastia are very aware of their upper bodies, especially men who are fit and in shape. An ideal candidate for this type of surgery must also have healthy and elastic skin, ensuring that the skin can fit to the new shape of the chest as opposed to start sagging.
How Does a Male Breast Reduction Procedure Work?
The surgeon will utilise liposuction as a technique to remove excess fat deposits from the targeted areas underneath the chest. They will make a small incision around the lower half of the nipple area from where the liposuction canula can reach the targeted fat deposits. The procedure takes place under general anaesthesia, as would be the case with any type of cosmetic surgical procedure. It is a popular procedure that only requires a few hours to perform. The results reduce male breasts for a more sculpted and contoured upper body.
What Happens Afterwards?
You can expect some swelling and bruising in the treated areas for a few days after your male breast reduction surgery. You will receive a prescription for painkillers as well to deal with the pain if it becomes uncomfortable. You can expect the swelling to subside within 2 to 4 weeks after the surgery, with the final results becoming visible after about 4 months.
