Male Breast Reduction with Liposuction
Man Boobs or Gynaecomastia in Men are quite common these days. They are often associated with the usage of Oral or Intramuscular Steroids and Testosterone for Body Building purposes. Once the Breasts have developed and grown larger it is very difficult to reduce them by exercise or dieting. In some cases they appear naturally especially when associated with a period of being overweight during childhood or in adulthood. There are also other causes of Gynaecomastia in Men ranging from Hormonal Problems to Endocrinological Problems and even Cancers in the breast. Although unusual it can sometimes affect only one side.
The enlargement can be due to growth of Glandular Tissues or Overgrowth of Fat Tissues. Sometimes they can be due to overgrowth of both types of tissues. Physical Examination of the breasts cannot be relied upon totally to detect which type of tissues have over developed. A Mammogram and a Breast Ultrasound are both required to fine tune the diagnosis.
If there is a significant overgrowth of Glandular Tissue then Surgical Reduction is the better option. If the Gynaecomastia or Overgrown Breasts are due to Fat alone then Liposculpture / Liposuction is the better option. In such a situation the condition is more accurately described as a Pseudo Gynaecomastia.
Liposculpture / Liposuction of the Breasts is done by the Cosmetic Surgeon and Surgical Reduction is usually done by the Plastic or Reconstructive Surgeon.
