If you have male breasts – more commonly known as “man boobs” – you may feel as though there’s nothing you can do to correct them. Diet and exercise alone can’t decrease the size of man boobs, as they’re not exclusively caused by fat; rather, they’re caused by excessive glandular tissue in the chest region.
That’s why, if you’re embarrassed by man boobs, it’s time to discover how to correct them with gynecomastia surgery!
Correct Man Boobs with Gynecomastia Surgery
Gynecomastia surgery is a cosmetic procedure that removes the glandular tissue that contributes to the appearance of man boobs. Once this glandular tissue has been completely removed, patients can expect to see their man boobs completely disappear. In addition to removing glandular tissue, some patients will have liposuction performed on the chest, which can help sculpt and create the appearance of a more masculine chest.
Gynecomastia surgery has an incredibly high patient satisfaction rating, as it can literally deliver life-changing results for men. Patients who undergo gynecomastia surgery feel more confident in their appearance, especially in situations where they may be wearing form-fitting shirts or shirtless.
What to Expect After Surgery
You’ll be able to see the results of your gynecomastia surgery right away; however, you should expect to wear a compression garment for a week or two immediately after your treatment. You may also have drainage tubes in your chest to help with the healing process.
You should expect some post-procedure swelling and bruising. You’ll also be restricted from lifting anything heavy for at least four weeks after your surgery. Most patients are able to return to their normal routines about four to six weeks after their gynecomastia surgery.
