Whenever the subject of gynaecomastia – the breast-like appearances on a man’s chest commonly known as ‘Man-boobs’ – crops up, the general assumption is that it can be easily remedied: all you have to do is stay out of the pub and lay off the pies, right? Well, no – it’s a bit more complex than that.
While it’s an undeniable fact that the chest area is one of the most prominent parts of the body that take on fat during male weight gain, a lot of men suffer from gynaecomastia – even the fittest and leanest ones.
Here at Mr Sudip Ghosh’s Milton Keynes male breast reduction clinic, we see a large number of men who suffer from gynaecomastia and don’t know what it is or what to do about it.
What is Gynaecomastia?
Gynaecomastia is a condition that a lot of men experience during puberty: it’s essentially a hard, tender lump just behind the nipples, usually on both sides. As soon as your hormones calm down, it often disappears when you reach adulthood – but for a lot of men, it doesn’t, whatever you do.
Some men assume that it can be covered up with a strict upper-body exercise regime – but that only makes it more prominent. Other men even bite the bullet and deliberately put on weight in the assumption that it’ll balance things out – and again, that makes them stick out even more.
How do I get rid of them?
The best way to reduce the male breast is through surgery. The method we commonly use is a minor liposuction procedure, followed by a removal of the prominent breast tissue. As with all procedures of this nature, there will be scarring around the nipple, but it’s very minor (and if you have chest hair, eventually undetectable).
We’re discovering that more and more men are turning to this procedure these days, for the simple reason that it works. If you’re considering a male breast reduction, our advice is to book a consultation at Mr Ghosh’s Milton Keynes male breast reduction clinic at your earliest convenience.Leave a reply
