Gynaecomastia, or swollen and prominent breasts in males, is a relatively frequent disorder. It can occur due to significant fat tissue deposition around the breasts during adolescence or substantial weight loss.
Men with gynaecomastia are self-conscious about their bodies, especially while swimming, working out at the gym, or wearing a well-fitting T-shirt. It undermines their self-esteem, confidence, and psychological well-being.
The extra fat and glandular tissue are removed with liposuction and excision to treat gynecomastia medically. More tightening of the surrounding skin may be necessary. Either local anesthesia or a general anesthetic is mainly used during the procedure.
The liposuction cannula is placed through a little incision created in the bottom of the nipple region. Depending on how much fat needs to be removed, the procedure may take 1-2 hours. If the procedure is done under anesthesia, you might have to spend a night in the hospital.
The newest and least intrusive method of doing this operation is called the "Light Pull-Through Procedure." This procedure has a smaller incision through which the fat and glandular tissue is removed.
The benefit of this method is that there are fewer scars, and no drains must be left behind after surgery. This will result in a scar that heals more quickly and is barely noticeable.
There will be some localized discomfort, bruising, and swelling, but these side effects will disappear in a few days. You should take a few days off work and refrain from physical activity.
