Gynecomastia surgery – For health and aesthetic reasons

Breast surgery is very popular among women. Women with bigger or smaller breasts can feel a lot better when these are enlarged or made smaller. Breast cancer is unfortunately quite common and breast surgery can help a woman to deal with results of the disease. There are not only women that are unsatisfied with their breasts however. More and more men acknowledge that they are not satisfied with their breasts and look for aid, aid which they can find in gynecomastia surgery which is basically plastic surgery for male breasts.

Men who have gynecomastia, which means ‘woman breast’, can be very unsatisfied with their breasts and this can harm their quality of life. From not going to the beach and not sporting to lame jokes pointed towards them, gynecomastia can have a negative impact on every man’s life.

What actually causes this kind of breast enlargement is the development of large mammary glands. This development can be caused by the following:

  • Larger than usual amount of female hormones from birth on.
  • In adolescence men can develop bigger mammary glands because of stress.
  •  Obesity can cause the breasts to grow.
  • A distress of the sex hormones.
  • If a man trains his breast muscles and then stops working out, there is a big chance that he will end up with breasts larger in size that have a baggy shape.

All of the above can cause man’s breasts to take on a larger size. A lot of men are not satisfied with their looks because of their breasts which can affect their social life and health in general. We already live in a stressful society today and everything that gives you more stress and makes you feel bad about yourself should be worked on. Luckily gynecomastia surgery has been developed to help these men with their problems. A lot of men have already undergone this procedure and had their quality of life improved because of the plastic surgery for male breasts.

Like any other form of plastic surgery, plastic surgery for male breasts, or gynecomastia surgery, should be discussed by the patient and the doctor in advance in order to achieve the best results. In this discussion the patient can explain his problems and wishes while the doctor can tell the patient what the possibilities are with gynecomastia surgery. Gynecomastia surgery is quite common among men and it involves downsizing of the breasts by removing excessive skin, fat and glandular tissue. This procedure normally only requires a small incision in both the breasts. The patient is usually under a general anesthesia during gynecomastia surgery.

Gynecomastia surgery can be a life changing surgery for men that experience psychological problems because of their breasts. The discomfort that can be caused when the upper body is exposed can be a very bad experience which can leave marks on a man’s life.
