Dealing with Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is an embarrassing disorder that many men suffer from. Causing the production of more breast tissue and the appearance of larger breast, gynecomastia is typically caused by bodybuilders who take supplements that accentuate their chests. If you suffer from gynecomastia and would like to get rid of it, there’s a surgical treatment for you.

By making a small incision around the areola or under the breast, male breast reduction surgery typically uses a form of liposuction with or without gland excision to help get rid of extra fat cells and tissue that may have accumulated in your breasts. During this procedure you will be under anesthesia, so you won’t feel a thing.

What is recovery time like?
Recovery time for a male breast reduction surgery varies on a patient to patient basis. However, the average recovery time is about 4-6 weeks. During your recovery you won’t be able to lift heavy things or lift weights, because you need to give your body an adequate time to heal and restore itself. During this time, you may also be encouraged to wear a compression shirt around the surgical area, so that you don’t mess with any stitches or the incision site.

What are the results like?
As long as you stop taking any of the body building supplements that caused the gynecomastia, your results should be permanent. And, you can expect to sport your bathing suit or go shirtless without having to feel self-conscious any longer.
