Gynecomastia is the increase in the size of the breasts of men, whose treatment is carried out with a male breast reconstruction procedure. Men who suffer from this pathology are usually overweight and lead a sedentary life. The excess of fat in this area of ??the body can be very uncomfortable for many men and that is why they decide to go through the operating room to reduce the chest.
What is gynecomastia?
The symptoms of gynecomastia are easy to see since it is a physical problem. It is possible that the patient will notice a different sensation of their breasts, a different touch that can even generate a small pain and sensitivity. It is a very common problem that affects men and that may be caused in addition to obesity, endocrine, hormonal problems, or the consumption of certain drugs or drugs.
The types are very varied, since it is possible that gynecomastia appears symmetrically or asymmetrically. The symmetric is that which is presented in the same way in both breasts. In contrast, asymmetric gynecomastia is when one of the breasts is larger than the other.
Degrees of Gynecomastia
Nowadays, it is possible to end this problem, but first it is necessary to know what degrees of gynecomastia exist, since you can differentiate several types depending on their growth:
Grade I. In this first phase, the increase observed in the nipples is not very high and not much excess skin is observed. Therefore, the glandular tissue can be removed easily.
Grade II The growth is still mild, but it affects a larger area than the one surrounding the nipple. There is not an excess of skin. In this degree the condition is not noticeable if you wear loose clothing in which your body is not marked.
Grade III In this phase, moderate growth extends beyond the borders of the areola with extremes that become distant from the rest of the breast. In this degree, the problem begins to be visible to the rest and can psychologically affect the patient.
Grade IV. The growth is very marked and noticeable, and the breasts take on a very similar appearance to female breasts. This grade can negatively affect the patient making him feel uncomfortable with his body.
Treatment to reduce the chest
Gynecomastia surgery is a very simple surgery that is carried out under general anesthesia and lasts approximately one and a half hours. The surgeon in charge of carrying out the operation will make several incisions in the chest, which usually are in the areola so that the scar is practically imperceptible. The length of the scar will vary depending on the patient and the type of intervention that must be performed.
Absolute rest of the patient is recommended after the intervention and in a few days he will be able to return to normal life. It will be necessary to take a medication and follow the doctor’s instructions for a good recovery.
It is normal that after the operation you have the area inflamed with bruising and tightness for a few days. The four weeks after the operation should avoid taking weight and make sudden movements.
