More and more men are choosing to undergo cosmetic enhancement today and for a variety of reasons. One such reason is when men experience gynecomastia or enlargement of the breast tissue. This condition may not be a painful one for everybody but in severe cases, it can certainly be socially embarrassing, leading to low self-image and self-confidence and pushing young men towards social isolation.
Enlarged breast tissue in men may or may not be accompanied by puffy nipples. For some men, gynecomastia can be hidden with oversized clothes but in severe cases, it is embarrassing, discomforting, and sometimes, even painful. Widely known as ‘male boobs,’ enlarged breast tissue can affect men of all ages but it most commonly affects younger boys nearing puberty and older men.
Even though there can be several reasons behind your gynecomastia, it is mostly caused due to an imbalance in hormones. The condition is caused by an imbalance in the levels of testosterone (male hormones) and estrogen (female hormones) in your body. It could also affect just one breast leading to visible asymmetry in the male chest. Older men and younger boys who are near puberty are most likely to suffer from gynecomastia due to hormonal changes. Other reasons that could cause your gynecomastia include taking certain medications and obesity. In these cases, the enlarged breasts will reduce with time but in case your symptoms remain persistent, you have the option to take medicines or get a surgical removal.
When your symptoms do not resolve on their own, there may be swelling in your breast glands accompanied by tenderness. Some men even experience some pain or a discharge from one or both nipples. In case you experience any of these symptoms, it is time that you book a consultation with Dr. Angelchik. He will evaluate your breasts and help you remove the enlarged tissue in order to regain a masculine chest.
You must be in good physical and emotional health to be a good candidate for the surgery. Most men try different options like exercising and dieting or medication before opting for surgical reduction of their gynecomastia.
If you have excessive fat in the chest area, Dr. Angelchik will recommend that you undergo liposuction for breast reduction. During the procedure, small incisions are made in the area for inserting a small cannula which will breakdown and remove the extra fat from the chest area.
If you have excessive tissue in the chest area, Dr. Angelchik can use from a range of excision techniques for removal. Usually, he will use a combination of excision and liposuction that allows him to sculpt the chest area for flattering results. His surgical skills and expertise allow Dr. Angelchik to offer the best results with minimal scarring. You may have to wear a special compression garment for some days in order to reduce the swelling and to promote healing. Most men are able to return to their everyday routine within a few days post their surgery. You should avoid any strenuous exercises for a few weeks.
Goodyear is a city in the Maricopa County of Arizona. It is a suburb of Phoenix and home to the Goodyear Ballpark where the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds of Major League Baseball hold their spring training. The city is named after the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company which cultivated extensive farmland here to grow cotton for use in their tires. It was established in 1917 with the purchase of 16,000 acres of land by the company. However, the majority of construction and population growth happened after 1990. Estrella is the largest community in Goodyear with variously sized homes and is located south of the Gila River, near the Estrella Mountains. PebbleCreek is a community for adult living and features restaurants, fitness centers and 54 holes of championship golf. The Estrella Mountain Regional Park is spread over 20,000 acres and most of it still a desert. Goodyear is known as the site for professional baseball teams’ spring training sessions. There are a few historic structures in Goodyear that are now in a state of abandonment like the Litchfield Train Station and the Phoenix Trotting Park.
