How does Gynecomastia Develop?
Gynecomastia or the development of male breasts sometimes referred to as ‘man boobs’ is more common than many people think. Gynecomastia occurs for a variety of reasons: weight gain (fatty deposits such as love handles around the waist might be mimicked with fatty deposits elsewhere on the torso such as in the breasts); the taking of certain drugs such as steroids or use of cannabis, but in many cases the cause is unknown and may be genetic. Regardless of the cause, gynecomastia can be very embarrassing and create insecurity in social and intimate situations for males who suffer from it.
About our gynecomastia surgery in Sydney
Our Sydney plastic surgeon, Dr. Hodgkinson, who is an expert at gynecomastia surgery says that for a successful and uniform result that liposuction to the chest/breast area is usually not enough as in these cases it is not a fatty deposit alone but breast tissue as well that has developed. Therefore it is necessary to make a small incision at the juncture of the nipple to avoid visible scarring to remove some of the tissue and fat. In rare cases where a man has experienced extreme weight loss, it may be necessary to remove some skin as well that has lost its elasticity to achieve an aesthetically pleasing result.
