Male Breast


Having large breasts can be very embarrassing for a man. Hormonal changes take place in the body (unopposed female hormones or low levels of male hormone) during puberty and as a result, breast tissue forms and enlarges in most boys. In majority of the boys this disappears as the hormone surge reduces. But if it does not, the residual breast tissue and fat together form the male breast.

Enlarged male breasts are usually a combination of fat and excess breast tissue. This can very well be removed in an aesthetic manner with power liposuction only using certain special instruments. This is termed 'Key-Hole Male Breast Surgery' or 'Gynecomastia Surgery'. This is a day care procedure and is done through small incisions, one on either side of the chest. These scars fade and are barely visible in a few weeks. The results are permanent. Swelling in the operated area takes about three weeks to settle down.

Key hole surgery for male breast refers to application of principles of liposuction using certain special instruments. The marks are only 3-4 mm long and fade in time. A pressure garment is to be worn for 3 weeks after the procedure to support the skin during the healing period.

Occasionally enlarged male breasts are associated with very loose skin which is usually seen in people who have lost a lot of weight or those who have very large breasts. In such cases we usually recommend a 2 staged procedure in which the first stage involves reduction of the breast volume by power liposuction. The breast is then allowed to shrink for about 3 months. After this period if the person wants skin tightening then it is done through small cuts around the areola sometimes extending to eth sides.

Improved Results
raditional method of treating male breast entailed making a big cut below the nipple area and cutting off the breast tissue only. Although this would improve appearance, results would fall short of an aesthetic ideal.

Often, there would be an area of shallowness surrounded by fat deposits (saucer deformity). This deformity often becomes exaggerated when the person flexes his muscles. This leaves the person very embarrassed as this is a telltale sign of having large breasts which have not been operated in the right manner. This can be corrected surgically, but it is better to avoid such a problem by selecting a more sensible option. Liposuction not only removes the breast tissue, it can remove the excess fat deposits on the chest at the same time and achieve a normal desirable contour.
