Gynaecomastia (enlarged breasts in males) is a common condition that can affect men of all ages, and can be a source of embarrassment, low self-esteem, and immense psychological distress. It affects approximately 40-60 percent of men, and its cause can occasionally be related with certain drugs or medical conditions.
Men with this condition who feel self-concious about their appearance can be helped with male breast reduction surgery. The surgery aims to produce a flatter, firmer, and more masculine chest contour by removing excess fat and glandular tissue from the breasts. This can be achieved by liposuction alone or through a combination approach involving direct excision and liposuction. In extreme cases, removal of excess skin may be required. A compression garment is worn after surgery to help achieve a smooth chest contour. Results from this procedure is long-lasting and carry a very high rate of patient satisfaction.
