When do men need gynecomastia surgery in Dubai?
Gynecomastia is often caused by hormonal changes which can trigger the growth of breast tissue in males. This is common during puberty when levels of testosterone fluctuate. In some cases, levels even out and the chest shrinks but this is not always the case. Men may also be affected by gynecomastia in older age as they produce less testosterone.
Gynecomastia may also be caused by being overweight. Being overweight increases oestrogen levels, which in turn triggers breast growth. You are also more likely to have extra fat which adds to the effect of enlarged breasts.
How do I know If I have gynecomastia?
Typically gynecomastia affects both sides of the chest, but sometimes it is present on one side only leading to asymmetry and distortion. In many cases, gynecomastia will be obvious. Gynecomastic breasts may feel tender and you may be able to feel a lump of fatty tissue under the nipple. If you experience nipple discharge, shrinking or inverted nipples, or hard lumps in the breasts, a plastic surgeon in Dubai may call for a thorough chest examination with mammography to rule out anything sinister.
What are the options for getting rid of enlarged male breasts?
Lifestyle changes such as practising exercise and following a healthy diet can help shrink enlarged breasts but may not necessarily eliminate your “man boobs”.
Wearing tight compression garments can reduce the visibility of enlarged breasts.
In some cases, men may be prescribed medicine to help regulate any hormone imbalance.
To permanently get rid of enlarged breasts and improve your aesthetic, Dr. Adnan recommends gynecomastia surgery.
Why do most plastic surgeons in Dubai recommend gynecomastia surgery?
Gynecomastia is one of the most recommended and popular plastic surgeries because:
- It is a permanent solution to restore chest shape in men
- Alternative approaches may not be successful in reducing enlarged breasts
Dr. Adnan believes in giving men a better solution with gynecomastia surgery in Dubai.
What does gynecomastia surgery in Dubai involve?
Before surgery, Dr. Adnan will conduct a thorough examination to assess your individual case. If you have felt a lump in your breast area, he will recommend mammography to rule out breast cancer.
Gynecomastia surgery aims to remove the fat tissue that causes breast enlargement. This involves liposuction to remove the fat from the targeted area and a drain may be used to prevent fluid accumulation at the surgery site.
To ensure proper recovery after surgery, you will be asked to stop certain medications, smoking and alcohol intake.
