Male Breast Enlargement – Symptoms, Causes & Treatment
Know about What is gynecomastia, which is a very common affliction of young men following puberty. This result in excess fat or gland build up over the chest of a young man, which essentially makes it look like the female chest. This has deep psychological impact on a young man while he is growing up and most of them don’t know what to do.
The treatment for this is surgical only, as this fat content or this excess gland cannot be reduced by any type of medicine. The treatment or rather the surgical treatment depends on whether there is excess fat or whether there is excess gland on the chest or little bit of both. What it entails is liposuction, if it is only fat or liposuction in addition with gland excision which involves a very small incision around the nipple to take the excess gland out following liposuction. The surgery is done under local anesthesia with sedation. It’s done as a day care surgery following which you can leave the hospital by evening. Pressure garments are usually advised to be worn for 3-4 weeks following the procedure.
