Want to Lose the Man Boobs?

Published on January 11, 2019

Gynecomastia, or male breasts, are often called “man boobs.” They can make a man look and feel less confident. If you have developed body issues and self-esteem problems as a result of man boobs, it’s time for a change. To restore a more masculine look to your chest, we can get rid of the man boobs with the help of male breast-reduction surgery.

Man Boobs

Man boobs can appear as a result of a wide variety of factors. They can be caused by dramatic weight loss, either through exercise and diet or through surgery. Certain medications can cause a hormone imbalance, which can lead to the formation of man boobs. Illnesses and recreational drug use can cause them, and even your genes can be a factor.

With a male breast-reduction surgery, not only will the excess tissue get removed from the chest area, your chest will also achieve a more sculpted look.

Your Male Breast-Reduction Consultation

During your consultation with Dr. Gikas, the two of you will discuss your complete medical history, including any allergies you may have and any medications you are taking.

This will be the time to share your concerns and expectations regarding male breast reduction. Before the consultation, make a list of questions that you want to ask Dr. Gikas.

After discussing the procedure thoroughly with you, Dr. Gikas will tell you the type of incisions he intends to make. He will also discuss post-operative care with you.

Male Breast Reduction

The type of anesthesia that you will require for male breast reduction will depend on your general health condition and other factors. After it is administered, you will feel comfortable and will feel no pain during your surgery.

The nature of the procedure will depend on the type of tissue that needs to be removed. To remove excess fat, liposuction will be used. A cannula will be inserted to suction out the fat cells. To remove glandular breast tissue, Dr. Gikas will make incisions on the chest and then use a scalpel to excise the breast tissue. Excess skin can also be removed in this manner.

Male Breast-Reduction Recovery

You are most likely to be discharged on the same day of your operation. You will be prescribed pain medication and given a compression garment to support the temporarily weakened tissues of the chest as they recover.

You will see and feel the results of the procedure almost immediately. However, to see the full outcome, you will need to wait for the post-surgical swelling to go down. After you have healed enough to remove the compression garment and the soreness and swelling have gone away, you will be able to show off your more masculine chest.

After Your Procedure

Male breast-reduction surgery is a permanent solution for man boobs. Unless you suffer from medical conditions that lead to excessive weight gain or you use steroids, the effects of the surgery will stay with you.

To make the most of your better-contoured chest, it’s best to adopt an exercise routine and stick with it. It will also be important to maintain a healthy diet.
