How Is Gynecomastia and Chest Fat Treated?

Fat Removal 

A minimally invasive surgical procedure called liposuction can eliminate stubborn fat from the chest and other body parts. Liposuction can be used either alone or in conjunction with manboobs surgery, depending on what is causing your swollen breasts. An aesthetically attractive effect can be achieved by combining liposuction with surgical excision of glandular tissue to define the chest better.

Surgical Excision

Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction, primarily involves surgical excision. To produce a breast that looks more defined and natural, carefully remove any extra breast tissue and shape the remaining tissue. Additionally, extra or sagging skin will be removed to tighten and smooth the breast area.

The major causes of Manboobs 

Several factors can contribute to having Manboobs 

Hormonal Changes: Fluctuations in hormone levels, specifically an imbalance between testosterone and estrogen, can enlarge breast tissue. This imbalance can occur during puberty and with aging or certain medical conditions.

Medications: Certain medications, including anabolic steroids, antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, and some chemotherapy drugs, can cause gynecomastia as a side effect.

Health Conditions: Conditions such as hypogonadism (a decrease in testosterone production), hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid gland), liver disease, and kidney failure can 

contribute to the development of manboobs 

Substance Abuse: The use of substances like alcohol, marijuana, and heroin can also lead to gynecomastia.

Swollen or tender breasts

Breast tenderness

Nipple discharge 

Early Signs Of Gynecomastia

The early signs of gynecomastia typically include a lump or excess tissue beneath the nipple in one or both breasts. The breasts may also become sore. The growth may feel rubbery or firm and tender to the touch. Even without tenderness or pain, enlargement of your breasts alone may be the only gynecomastia symptom you have.

How Gynecomastia Affects Mental Health

According to the study, gynecomastia patients scored lower on the standard quality of life questionnaire, which covers mental, social, and general health. Additionally, a higher self-esteem score was associated with breast augmentation. In general, the presence of gynecomastia alone, regardless of its severity, was sufficient to result in severe impairments in self-esteem behaviors and attitudes, general social functioning, and physical and mental health. These findings demonstrate how gynecomastia affects the lives of males who experience it.

Counseling is a must before gynecomastia treatment 

If gynecomastia is causing significant emotional distress, consider seeking counseling or therapy to help address body image issues and improve self-confidence.

Manboobs is a common condition affecting men and boys of all ages. While it can be distressing, it’s important to remember that effective treatment options are available. By seeking medical advice, exploring treatment options, and finding support, individuals with gynecomastia can improve their quality of life and regain confidence in their appearance.
