I'm A Guy [Gynecomastia]

Embarrassment, teasing, social trauma are associated with this condition. Gynecomastia or male breast enlargement is a common condition today in men. Male breast surgery, breast reduction, chest contouring are some of the plastic surgeries performed for this condition. Liposuction could also be the answer. More than physical discomfort this condition puts the person under a lot of emotional baggage. One cannot wear a thick shirt in the summers, raises questions and uncomfortable answers. Swimming is the last option for this individual. Sometimes even if the physical condition is corrected, the psychological correction could take longer. Bouncing flesh, Gynecomastia, Male Puffy Nipples, excess fat, and skin sagging after weight loss can cause distress. Initially we had girdles which were popular. Men have forgotten the power of compression in shaping and stabilizing. Today too, we have Male BodySuits with Zippers, which is a minor corrective method. There are various reasons for this condition. Some men have excess breast tissue deposits; sometimes it’s related to medicines or a hormonal imbalance and most often its bad luck. Though according to our surgeons at The Plastic Surgery Institute of California this condition is not usually serious, but a precautionary visit to the doctor could save future anxiety. Plastic or cosmetic surgery can rectify this not so serious condition. Opting for plastic surgery is an important decision, and the best plastic surgeon is even more important. A ‘Donut Mastopexy’ is a surgical sculpture where a circle of skin is removed around the areola/nipple. A large or a dark areola can also be of grave concern to an individual. These cosmetic surgeries are also commonplace today. Extra skin and loose fat are issues to a gynecomastia deformity. A surgery called the Male Breast Lift Surgery can address this ptosis and helps rectify this deformity too. The male sagging chest can also be just a normal aging condition. As we age, our muscles lose mass and droop. This drooping accentuates male chest ptosis. But of course this does not pose a problem then. At The Plastic Surgery Institute of California we have qualified surgeons who take you through the process with ease and comfort. Even the outpatient procedure is performed at their state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center, requiring only 2-3 days recovery time. They ensure swimming becomes your favourite sport.
