MALE BREAST REDUCTION - GYNAECOMASTIA

Enlarged male breasts or Gynaecomastia is a common problem in many men. During adolescence, many boys experience this problem to a certain extent, affecting one or both breasts. The chances of suffering from this condition are reduced to less than 10% once adulthood is reached. However, with advancing age, the occurrence once again rises and affects about 30% of older men. Male breast enlargement is quite a common condition but is rarely talked about. In majority of the cases, there is no known cause, however sometime it can also be caused infrequently by medicines, drugs, weight gain or loss, diseases like liver failure and cancer or rare genetic issues. Male breast enlargement can be treated with the help of cosmetic surgery, also known as Gynaecomastia reduction or Gynaecomastia excision which removes the unwanted bulges making your breasts appear smaller and firmer.

BENEFITS OF THE SURGERY

The primary benefit of a male breast reduction surgery is smaller breasts with improved shape, which can elevate your confidence and make you less self conscious about your breasts.

PROCEDURE OF MALE BREAST REDUCTION

Breasts are made up of two parts – the dense and firm glandular tissue, and the soft fatty tissue. The ratio of both varies from one individual to the other. The excessive accumulation of one or both tissues leads to gynaecomastia.

If the enlargement is predominantly caused due to excess fatty tissues, liposuction is the ideal procedure used for treatment. Small 3-4mm stabs are made in the skin through which a small tube is inserted to suck out the excess fatty tissues. If gynaecomastia is necessary due to surplus glandular tissue deposits, a cut is made around the nipples and excessive tissue is removed. This leaves a scar around the nipple.

For larger breasts, the procedure may require cuts in the breast crease under the inframammary fold, leaving an anchor-like scar. For droopy breasts, complete detachment of the nipples from their original position, repositioning them in higher position, may be required. Larger cuts may be necessary for removal of substantial amounts of skin and tissue which results in noticeable scars. Regardless of the technique used, this condition remain associated with relatively higher dissatisfaction rate with the result of surgery although majority of the patients are very happy on the overall improvement of their chest wall/breast shape.

Generally, the time needed for the surgery is about one to one and half hours, depending on the complexity of the process.

ANTICIPATED OUTCOME AND RECOVERY

The effects are not easily visible just after the surgery, as the chest remains bruised and swollen for some time. You will be advised to wear pressure garments for two weeks following the surgery. You may be hospitalised for a night. Bandages are removed after a few days, but you should refrain from exercise, heavy manual work or lifting anything for three to four weeks after the surgery. It may take you about 6 weeks before you can resume normal activities.

POTENTIAL RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS

Haematoma, Seroma, infection,pain and firmness, Brusing, swelling, minor contour irragularities, dishing deformity due to over correction, loss of nipple after large surgical reduction, numbness and asymmetry, persistent dissatisfaction with the appearance.

SUMMARY

Operation duration: 1-2 hours. Anaesthesia: General/local. Hospital Stay: Overnight. Time offwork: 1-2 weeks depending upon extent and number of areas treated. Overall result: Visible from 2-6 months.

Lipoma Removal - Excision⁠

View this post on Instagram

Lipoma Removal / Excision⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ A Lipoma is the most common non-cancerous benign form of soft tissue growth. It is a growth of fat cells usually found just below the skin. Lipomas are most commonly found on the torso, neck, upper thighs, upper arms, and underarms. Since Lipomas are non-cancerous, they do not require any treatment; however, if a Lipoma becomes bothersome, infected, or continues to grow, you may choose to have it removed. The most common way to remove a Lipoma involves simply making an incision over the tumour, or perhaps a short distance away in a more hidden area, and removing the tumour.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Enquiries in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire: Please speak to Mrs Pauline Titley (private secretary) on 077 8069 8989⠀⁠⠀ ⠀⁠⠀ #cosmeticsurgery ⁠⠀ #bedfordshire ⠀⁠⠀ #hertfordshire ⠀⁠⠀ #derbyshire ⠀⁠⠀ #nottinghamshire⁠⠀ #stevenage ⁠⠀ #hitchin⁠⠀ #luton ⁠⠀ #hatfield⁠⠀
