Gynecomastia – Dealing With Male Breast
Gynecomastia is the enlargement of breast in men. This condition is not only embarrassing, it can also leave psychological scars on men who have to deal with unprecedented teasing and the consequential low self-esteem. It would be in the best interest of these men to have a surgery to get rid of this problem immediately. The best treatment for Gynecomastia is Gynecomastia surgery. You cannot get rid of Gynecomastia that easily. Gynecomastia may be caused due to an excess of estrogen or a lack of testosterone, and can occur in babies, teens and older men. Gynecomastia can also be caused by heredity and obesity.
Gynecomastia in older men can be caused by other issues too such as liver or lung cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, overactive thyroid or hormone problems. Excessive alcohol consumption or illicit drugs may also cause Gynecomastia. Sometimes, Gynecomastia is caused by some medications like steroids, ulcer medications, epilepsy medications, digitalis and other heart medications, chemotherapy drugs, anti androgen medications, antianxiety and antidepressant medications, body building medications or products containing tea tree oil or lavender oil. Therefore, surgery is the best option to treat Gynecomastia. Gynecomastia surgery reduces breast size, flattens and enhances the chest contours. In severe cases of Gynecomastia, the weight of excess breast tissue may cause the breasts to sag and stretch the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). In such cases the position and size of the areola can be surgically improved and excess skin may be reduced. Plastic surgery to correct Gynecomastia is technically called Reduction Mammaplasty.
Recovery post Gynecomastia surgery is not very hard. You can go home in about 2-3 hours of the surgery. Swelling after the surgery will be present, but most patients return to work in 1-2 days. You can resume mild exercise in about 1 week, and full activity or exercise in about 2 weeks. You may also be required to wear a compression garments or elastic bandage for 2-4 weeks to help reduce swelling, as well as compress the skin to the new body contour. Men who have Gynecomastia surgery are generally satisfied with the results. This surgery gives them the confidence they have been lacking and get rid of an embarrassing physical problem that holds them back from living life fully and freely.
