All men have some breast tissue. A few, unfortunately, have an excessive amount. Indeed, in some cases male breasts can be equivalent to a woman's C cup in size.
Occasionally this is due to a hormone imbalance, however, in most instances there is no detectable abnormality either on blood tests or clinical examination.
Regardless of the cause, this condition causes men a great deal of embarrassment. Many report they forego swimming and sunbathing to avoid taking their shirts off. Older boys may even play truant rather than subject themselves to physical education classes if they are required to shower afterwards.
No amount of exercise or diet will solve the problem. However surgery, by removing the excess tissue, can permanently restore a normal appearance.
During your consultation your surgeon will take a general medical history and ask you about any previous surgery. He will also ask about any regular medication you might be taking, including vitamins or supplements. For example, the anabolic steroids some body builders take can lead to gynaecomastia. In addition he will want to determine your current level of fitness and discuss your goals for the procedure.
Your surgeon will also explain the procedure to you, describe any scars the procedure will leave and discuss what you can expect after your surgery.
Male breast surgery is carried out under general anaesthesia and can be done as a day case or with a one-night stay in hospital.
The procedure may be done in one of two ways:
Sometimes the two techniques are combined. In all cases, surgery continues until the area is flat and normal in appearance.
Bleeding after male breast surgery is rare but a drainage tube may be used as a precaution. If it is used, the draining tube will be removed the morning after your surgery.
As you recover, there are some things you should expect:
Rarely, in cases where only the liposuction method is used, a second operation is required to remove tissue that could not be removed by liposuction. This situation may not manifest itself until all the swelling from your first procedure has settled.
