What Is Gynecomastia?
The Greek words for “women like breasts” are where the word “gynecomastia” comes from. From 24 to 60% of men have gynecomastia? It can happen to one breast or both. Gynecomastia surgery in Lahore is a benign enlargement of the chest in men. It can be caused by a higher level of estrogen in the blood or higher sensitivity of the breasts to an average estrogen level. Some medical conditions and medications, like poor liver function, testicular tumors, pituitary tumors, thyroid tumors, and anabolic steroids, can cause men to grow breasts. But in most cases, no one knows what makes male breasts grow too big.
Eligibility For Men’s Breast Reduction
People who drink too much alcohol, smoke marijuana, or take drugs like anabolic steroids are not good candidates for gynecomastia because their breasts may get bigger. So, before surgery, patients are first asked to stop using these substances. People who smoke should plan to stop for at least two weeks before surgery and while they are getting better. Smoking cuts off circulation and makes it harder to heal.
How Are Breast Reductions in Men Made?
For gynecomastia surgery in Lahore, male breast reduction is made with only local anesthesia. Under general anesthesia, a lot of changes can be made. Most surgeries take about two hours on average. Liposuction is used to eliminate excess fat, but surgery is needed to get rid of excess breast glandular tissue and skin. The cut will be made in a place that won’t be seen near the edge of the areola. Dr. Ata Ul Haq took out the extra breast tissue and skin by working through the cut in the skin. Patients with massive breasts or who have lost weight will need larger skin removals because the skin won’t fit the new smaller breast shape well. These cuts will leave more apparent scars.
If most of your breast enlargement is due to too much fat, Dr. Ata Ul Haq will use liposuction to eliminate the fat. In the area under the arm, a 4 mm cut is made. A cannula, which is a small hollow tube, is put into the amount. A vacuum pump is also hooked up to the cannula. Dr. Ata Ul Haq suctions the fat out with careful strokes.
Drainage tubes are sometimes used to reduce swelling after surgery. They are usually taken out within a few days.
Most of the time, male breast reduction surgery’s effects last a long time. Your new chest contour will enhance your self-image and confidence.
After male breast reduction surgery, you can expect some pain, bruising, and swelling. Taking painkillers and using cold packs will help ease the pain. For a few weeks, you will need to wear a chest support garment to help support the new shape of your chest and reduce swelling. After surgery, most of the nodes will go away in the first two weeks. But it will take three months before you can see the final results of your surgery. You shouldn’t let the sun touch your scars for at least six months after surgery. The sun can make the scar darker. Sunblock is recommended if you have to go out in the sun.
When a board-certified plastic surgeon does male breast reduction surgery, problems are rare and usually not too bad. Still, male breast reduction can cause problems like asymmetry, flap necrosis, infection, bleeding, seroma, permanent changes in skin color, and bad scarring.
