Male Breast Reduction – Fighting the Effects of Gynaecomastia

Male breast reduction surgery reduces the effect of gynaecomastia by drastically and noticeably reducing chest protrusion. Gynaecomastia is a medical condition that is caused by a hormonal imbalance in a man’s body. The effect of this condition causes chest protrusion.

Male breast reduction removes the excess fat deposits that causes the chest protrusion to reduce the protruded appearance. Throughout puberty, certain hormonal surges can lead to male breast tissue protrusion as well. The breast tissue can reduce in size after going through puberty. However, in most cases, the breast tissue will stay protruded. If you are looking for a surgical solution to such a problem, Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your answer.

Possible Causes for Male Chest Protrusion

Asymptomatic gynecomastia is prevalent in about 60% to 90% of children, 50% to 60% in adolescents, and up to 70% in men. Chest protrusion can also be caused by puberty (sporadic hormonal surges), excessive weight gain, anabolic steroids, certain drugs, and certain types of medication.

Gynecomastia affects both breasts, being most prominent on the chest tissue underneath the nipple-areolar complex. This specific area on the chest will feel like a palpable, tender, firm, mobile, disc-like mound of tissue. If this area feels hard and is associated with skin or nipple discharge, you should consult a medical professional instead, as you might not be dealing with gynaecomastia.

Book Your Consultation

Men with abnormal chest protrusion have limited wardrobe options and can become embarrassed about their physical appearance, especially when not wearing a shirt. Male breast reduction surgery can help you regain your confidence and reclaim your wardrobe choices. Therefore, if you are considering male breast reduction, it starts with booking your consultation with one of our surgeons. Our surgeon can take your through the procedure and give you an assessment on how this type of surgery can work for you.

The recovery period for this surgery is short, so you can expect to get back to work within a couple of days. If you are a smoker, prepare to quit smoking for at least 2 months before and after your surgery. This will optimise oxygen flow in your body for optimal levels of cellular healing during recovery.
