Today, more and more men are opting for cosmetic enhancement for various reasons. One such reason is when they suffer from breast enlargement, or gynecomastia. This is not always a painful condition, but it is certainly embarrassing and results in low self-esteem and self-confidence in men.
What is gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition where men suffer from enlarged breast tissue, sometimes called male breasts. They are also referred to as ‘male boobs’, and it leads to many men shunning social interactions due to a lack of self-esteem when suffering from gynecomastia.
What causes gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is usually caused because of an imbalance in the two hormones – estrogen and testosterone. This condition can affect just one or both breasts, leading to visible asymmetry. Older men and young boys who are nearing puberty are most likely to suffer from gynecomastia due to natural hormonal changes in their body. But this is not the only reason why the condition is caused, as some of the other reasons include obesity and the use of certain medications. In these cases, the enlarged breasts usually go away on their own with time. If it is persistent, you can find treatment from medications and surgical options.
When should you consult Dr. Erella?
When gynecomastia does not resolve on its own, you may experience swelling in the breast glands accompanied by tenderness. In certain cases, there might be pain in the breast tissue or nipple discharge from one or both breasts. When you experience such symptoms, it is best to consult with Dr. Erella so that he can evaluate your breasts. We offer the removal of enlarged breast tissue to give you the chiseled chest you always desired.
You must be in good physical and emotional health to be considered for gynecomastia surgery. Most men who have tried exercise and diet,, as well as other alternative treatments but failed to see any difference, consult Dr. Erella for surgical options.
What options do you have?
If you suffer from excessive fatty deposits in the chest area, Dr. Erella will use liposuction to reduce the size of your breasts. Small incisions are made in the area through which a small cannula is inserted to remove the excessive fat. When your gynecomastia is due to excessive glandular tissue, different excision techniques are used for removal. In most cases, Dr. Erella uses a combination of excision and liposuction to sculpt a manly chest for you. He is a skilled surgeon who will give you the best results with minimum scarring. You may have to wear a compression garment for a few days that will help you during the healing process. Most men are able to return to their normal routine within a few days; however, you must avoid any strenuous activity for some weeks.
