Gynecomastia (Correction of enlarged male breast)
Gynecomastia Surgery is about Reduction of Enlarged Male Breasts and Removal of gynecomastia glands by Surgical procedure.
Gynecomastia Ttreatment is more for psychological reason as it takes away the confidence owing to female like breasts. Without treatment the constant feel of inadequacy leads to loss of self confidence and self esteem. Ultimately the person becomes shy, frustrated and introvert.
Moreover the existing excessive breast tissue is prone to develop problems like female breasts. Studies have revealed that men with gynecomastia have about a fivefold greater risk for developing male breast cancer when compared with the general population. It is believed that the gynecomastia itself is not a precancerous condition, but rather that the hormonal changes (relative increase in estrogens, lower levels of androgens) that produce gynecomastia in adult men also increase their risk of developing breast cancer.
Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction UAL includes the infusion of a tumescent solution (it is a mixture of lidocaine analgesic, epinephrine vasoconstrictor and sterile saltwater) to the target problematic area . After waiting for few minutes, the special ultrasonic probes are introduced to emulsify or dissolve fat completely. This dissolved fat is then effortlessly suctioned out of the breast, leaving it to be firmer and masculine in appearance. With ultrasonic energy, even the firm tissues/ glands can also be dissolved to some extent. At the point when there is an abundance of glandular tissue, UAL may be performed in conjunction with extraction of gland from a tiny incision around the areola for a better result.
It is due to these advantages that the number of men who make a decision to undergo breast reduction has doubled over in the last 10 years.
Men with strangely puffy nipples/areolae experience the embarrassment of "standouts" when bare chest at gyms, swimming, sports etc.. The condition gets evident when fat and glandular tissues takes place underneath the areola.
Puffy nipples/areolae most generally occur in adolescent and youthful grown-ups. Studies reveal that around 90% of puffy nipples/areolae cases are brought on by hormonal abnormalities wherein the male body creates an excess of estrogen (a female hormone) and insufficient androgen (a male hormone) for a brief period. The condition may affect one side or both sides.
