Why have a male breast reduction?
Genetics, certain medications, obesity, hormones or excess breast tissue for unknown reasons despite weight loss can all cause enlarged breasts in males. This condition is quite common in men of all ages and can cause significant emotional distress and impact self confidence. Gynecomastia surgery can address these issues and help men at any age.
Does this sound like you?
•You have excess fat or glandular tissue in the chest area.
•You have excess breast skin, possibly due to massive weight loss.
•Excess fat or tissue is one-sided, causing asymmetry.
•You are self-conscience about the appearance of your chest.
•You avoid certain activities for fear of showing your chest.
Different approaches to treating gynecomastia
Dr Izadpanah will discuss the different ways to treat gynecomastia and what the best option is for you.
If the gynecomastia is primarily due to excess fat, then liposuction alone can be used as treatment. A liposuction cannula (hollow tube) will be used to loosen fat and then vacuumed through several small incisions. The incisions and procedure will be determined during your consultation with Dr Izadpanah.
Dr Izadpanah may recommend the excision technique in cases where excess skin and/or enlarged mammary glands are present, and not simply excess fat.
Combination of liposuction and excision
In some cases, a combination of both techniques may be used. Dr Izadpanah will assess your individual case to determine the best plan of action.
Key factors to take into account when considering male breast reduction
Not sure if you are a good candidate for a gynecomastia surgery? Dr Izadpanah and his team are happy to answer any questions you may have and will guide you in the process, but in general, the best candidates are men who:
•Are physically healthy, and at a normal and stable weight.
•Nonsmokers (smoking increases the chance of complications).
•Have realistic expectations about what can be achieved (discuss this with Dr Izadpanah)
•Have male breasts that they feel are too large.
•Have been unable to correct or treat their gynecomastia with alternative options.
