MALE BREAST REDUCTION – MOOB JOB
Gynaecomastia surgery is the surgical correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men.
Gynaecomastia (or Gynecomastia for the USA spelling) is a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men that can occur at any age. The condition can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, obesity, or the use of certain drugs. Gynaecomastia (sometimes referred to as “man boobs“) is a common condition that causes boys’ and men’s breasts to swell and become larger than normal.
Gynaecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair your self-confidence.
Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition.
Gynaecomastia is characterised by:
Excess localized fat
Excess glandular tissue development
Sometimes excess breast skin
Presence unilaterally (one breast) or bilaterally (both breasts)
Usually an over night stay is required in hospital and a week to 10 days off work. A compression garment need to be worn for 3 to 4 weeks following the procedure to assist with the healing process.
Will there be scars?
Any surgical treatment to correct Gynaecomastia will require incisions. While most incision lines are concealed within natural contours, some may be visible and are a necessary result of breast reduction surgery.
What will the day of surgery be like?
On the day of surgery, medication is administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. You and your surgeon will have decided in advance what type of anesthesia to be used. During the operation, various monitors are used to check your vital signs. A compressive dressing such as elastic bandage may be placed over the areas that are suctioned. Instruction of removing and emplacing of the bandage will be taught to you by your surgeon. You probably will be permitted to go home after a few hours, although some may stay over night in the hospital.
Gynaecomastia is a safe procedure, some of the potential complications that may be discussed with you include bleeding, infection, and other reactions to anaesthesia, skin irregularities, scaring and pigmentation changes may occur in some rare instance, changes in nipple or breast sensation may be temporary or permanent. Breast contour and shape irregularities, breast asymmetry. If liposuction is used, additional risks include uneven contours, rippling or loose skin, irregular pigmentation, excessive fluid loss or fluid accumulation. Allergies to tape, suture materials or glues, but treatments are usually available to help minimise these problems if they occur.
You will have initially some swelling and bruising. You can help to lessen certain risks by following the advice and instructions of your plastic surgeon, both before and after surgery.
After surgery, how will I look and feel initially?
The day after the surgery you will need to move around a bit to promote blood circulation. Limit yourself to brief periods of gentle activity, avoid smoking for awhile, you must not take aspirin or certain anti-inflammatory medication. Your dressing will be temporarily removed within several days. Swelling usually begins to subside a week or so following surgery, while bruising can last three weeks or longer. There may also be numbness in some areas, and it may take several weeks before feelings return. Typically stitches are removed within ten days unless they are disolvable.
When can I resume my normal activities?
In many instances, you can resume most of your normal activities within one or two weeks and begin some form of exercise soon after.
What is my general new out-look eventually?
Correction of Gynaecomastia is usually a highly effective technique for giving you a new body contour. It may last for a long time providing you maintain your weight and exercise. Most patients may gain confidence and be happy with their body image, as long as their expectations are realistic.
