Gynecomastia, or enlarged breast tissue, is very common among men and can affect the way they view themselves. A male breast reduction uses several different techniques to help you achieve a flatter, more masculine chest! Keep reading to find out when it might be time for gynecomastia surgery.
When Enlarged Breast Tissue is Hurting Your Confidence
If you feel uncomfortable going shirtless because of your enlarged breast tissue, it might be time for gynecomastia surgery. No matter what degree of gynecomastia you’re facing, a male reduction can help you achieve the figure you want. Some men only have slight puffiness in the breast area, while others might have more severe sagging. The appropriate techniques will be used depending on your specific concerns and their severity.
When You’ve Tried Diet and Exercise
You should always try diet and exercise first when it comes to getting rid of stubborn fat. Being within your ideal weight range is an important first step to getting the procedure. However, for many individuals, it is not enough to relieve stubborn fat deposits in the chest area. When this happens, a surgical procedure is often the most effective option.
When You’re Ready for a Surgical Procedure
Gynecomastia surgery often involves a combination of tissue excision and liposuction techniques. Some recovery and downtime will be required after the procedure and any strenuous activity should be avoided for several weeks. While gynecomastia involves a fairly short recovery, it’s important that you are ready to take it seriously in order for your body to properly heal. You should also be in good health with no conditions that would affect your healing process.
