About Male Breast Reshaping (Gynecomastia)

Male Breast Reshaping or Gynaecomastia refers to the swelling of male breasts. Breast tissues become overdeveloped in this condition. Gynecomastia is caused by a number of factors including lack of testosterone, excess of estrogen and obesity. At times, it has a hereditary origin too. Mostly there are no symptoms but if the mammary glands are enlarged, you will feel intermittent pain or tenderness. Consumption of too much alcohol and drugs can lead to gynecomastia as well.

Male Chest Reshaping is done to

  • Immediate improvement in the shape and appearance of your chest
  • Enlarge breasts that are naturally small.
  • Bad Self-image related to large breasts

How Surgery Performed?

Gynecomastia is carried out using either local anaesthesia or intravenous sedation under general anaesthesia and usually requires an overnight stay in hospital. Our Doctor will recommend you what is best for you during your consultation session.

During your initial consultation with our Doctor you will

  • Examine your medical history and any medications you are using
  • Explain to you the procedure in detail.

Is it worth getting Gynecomastia Surgery?

If gynecomastia weighs heavily on your self-esteem and negatively affects your quality of life, surgery may be a healthy consideration. Gynecomastia surgery is both a surgical procedure and a form of male breast surgery, which means that it is more likely to be beneficial than other non-surgical procedures. This procedure is fast, scarring is minimal, and the results are permanent. It is worth getting gynecomastia surgery as patients experience increased confidence as a result of their more masculine chest appearance.

What is the fastest way to recover from Gynecomastia Surgery?

Some tips to recover quickly from gynecomastia surgery are:

  • Get lots of rest and sleep, especially over the first week following surgery.

I had three procedures done with Mr Siddiqui, lip lift, breast implants and labiaplasty. I did a lot of research into surgeons and Mr Siddiqui stood out to me online he has a great profile and amazing reviews. My first consultation went really well, I was completely at ease, Mr Siddiqui explained everything thoroughly. A few weeks later I was in hospital having my procedures done, I was very well looked after and everything went smoothly. The aftercare was great. Between appointments Mr Siddiqui was only a WhatsApp or text message away, he was in touch everyday to begin and if I had any concerns he always replied quickly. I’m 6 weeks on from my procedures now and I am healing well and feeling great. I am very happy with my results. I can’t recommend Mr Siddiqui enough.

MALE chest reshaping SURGERY

There are several potential causes of gynecomastia, including the effects of a man’s hormones or the effect of medications. In some cases, this is caused by genetics. The most common cause of fullness of the male breast is the accumulation of fatty tissues in the area.

The goal of male breast reduction is always a natural appearance and a masculine contour to the chest. Only excess breast tissue is removed since all men have some breast gland tissue. Removing additional tissue would affect the chest contours negatively and make the result appear unnatural. When performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, male breast reduction results are typically very symmetrical and natural-looking.

You can return to your work after 2-3 days of surgery. Swelling is going to be there, but it will not affect you much. You can carry out light exercises, but should refrain from doing heavy work and exercises for a month.

You will feel pain and discomfort post the surgery, but it can be controlled with the help of painkillers prescribed by Dr. Jugenburg. After a few days, you should feel no pain at all.

Normally, it takes around 1-2 hours for the gynecomastia reduction surgery to complete.

Gynecomastia is a condition in which excess glandular tissue or fat in the chest of males produces feminine-looking breasts. It is treatable but not always reversible, the condition may respond to diet and exercise – at least to an extent.

In body builders, Gynecomastia is a particular concern given that the sport revolves around aesthetic appearance. Because of anabolic steroids used by athletes to maximize muscle growth which are frequently sold in various sport and general nutrition stores, leads to gynecomastia due to subsequent hormonal imbalances. In most cases, gynecomastia becomes a permanent finding, lasting beyond the cessation of steroid use.

Strenuous activity (anything that increases blood pressure) should be avoided for the first two weeks after surgery. After about six weeks, the chest muscles are typically healed enough for light chest and arm exercises. Most importantly, upper body or chest workouts may resume incrementally after four weeks unless otherwise instructed because muscles are not as strong as they were before surgery and are therefore prone to injury.

In general, gynecomastia is incredibly safe and most patients have smooth recoveries after the surgery. The most common complication is accumulation of blood in the wound. This is not a serious complication and many times, the blood can be drained with a needle. Loss of sensation in the areola may also occur which usually happens after surgery.

In male, an overly large chest can be worsened by being overweight. If you have full chest because of too much fat, you can lose the weight naturally by intaking fruits and vegetables. So, if you are not at your target weight, it’s a good idea to lose weight before your male breast reduction procedure.

Yes, a second male breast reduction is possible. In this procedure, the fat and the glandular tissues are removed which are the root causes of the gynecomastia so there are less chances of recurrence. The risks of sensory changes and skin healing problems may be increased depending upon what technique was used the first time, and what technique would be used the second time you have breast reduction surgery.

After male breast reduction surgery, you should sleep on your back and prop yourself up with one or two pillows in order to minimize swelling. You should also avoid physical activity or heavy lifting. You should avoid sleeping on your belly or side for 2 weeks following your procedure.

After male breast reduction surgery, you should avoid driving for the first 24 hours. You should be confident enough and feel secure in making any unexpected movements that may be necessary as you drive your car. You can resume to normal life and when you feel comfortable you can also start exercising after one-two weeks of surgery.

Gynaecomastia is the enlargement of male breast tissue, may slightly increase your risk of breast cancer after the surgery. The risk of developing male breast cancer is very small after being operated for gynecomastia. In most cases, gynecomastia resolves on its own with minimal treatment and little risk of long-term complications.

Gynecomastia is the most common male breast disorder. It is not a tumor but rather an increase in the amount of a male’s breast tissue that mainly affects teenage boys and older men, but it can affect men at any age.

There are no difference in some of the techniques used in male breast reduction surgery from those used in female breast reduction procedures. All gynecomastia surgery scars are permanent and visible and are a necessary result of male breast reduction surgery. While a total reduction of scars is quite impossible with any surgical procedure, most incision lines are concealed within natural contours.

The typical recovery time for gynecomastia surgery is 4-6 weeks. After six weeks, the incision site will start to develop a firm healing ridge. It will take another six months or so before this solid ridge begins to soften. To have smooth and fast recovery you should strictly follow the instruction of your surgeon.

Gynecomastia that occurs in teenagers during puberty usually goes away without treatment within six months to two years. The excess breast tissue growth seen during puberty is a result of hormonal changes in the body affecting both androgens and estrogens. The condition sometimes develops between ages 10 and 12 years and most commonly occurs between ages 13 and 14 years.
