Large male breasts – man boobs – are an extremely common problem that affects between 45%-50% of the male population.
Medically known as “Gynaecomastia”, the increased size of tissue in the male breasts results in one or both of the breasts being enlarged. For men, this can be quite an embarrassing issue which can lead to reduced self-confidence and self-esteem issues.
The good news is that you can say goodbye to your man-boobs and regain assurance with using this advanced, medical procedure.
Dr Adam Najem is skilled in treating gynaecomastia. He uses an advanced liposuction technique to remove excess fat from your chest where there is excess tissue to reduce the size of your breasts – whilst contouring the chest for a natural look.
The results are immediately visible. This is a relatively simple procedure performed at our fully accredited day surgery facility located in Sydney.
This is a popular procedure for men across a range of ages who take great pride in themselves and their appearance.
The ease and simplicity of this procedure is attractive for people who want a good quality solution that will fix the problem long term, and who want to see the results in the short term.
There are many advantages of Gynecomastia surgery. Many patients experience:
This is usually a very straight forward procedure which can be completed in day surgery.
Excess fat is removed and simultaneously, a specialised technique is used to contour your chest so that the change in shape and size is immediately visible – and it looks natural.
We will assess your needs during your consultation with Dr Adam and you will be given all the recommendations and options that are available for you. Post-surgery, you will be given a chest compression to wear and after a few days, you’ll be able to return to work.
Any surgery comes with a certain level of risk, including infection, scarring, or bruising. Specific risks of Gynecomastia surgery include:
If you have any concerns about the risks involved, book a consultation with us and we can discuss every aspect of the procedure and address any questions you may have.
Each patient will have different results, according to their situation and body type. Carefully following both pre-and post-op directions will also help ensure the best results.
While swelling is minimal after male breast reduction procedures, there will be puffiness. This will settle over the course of 6 weeks and subside completely after 3 months.
For optimal results, immediately after the procedure, patients must rest for a minimum of 12 hours and avoid strenuous activity for a few days. Drains will be removed the day after the procedure. Patients should expect some slight bruising and should wear a surgical vest with foam padding for 6 weeks. This will reduce the recurrence of breast tissue and assist in the contouring of the chest.
While incisions need to be made at the lower border of the areolar, scarring is minimal and will continue to lessen over time. Any stitches applied will dissolve naturally and require no need for removal.
Whether you are removing glandular tissue or using Vaser liposuction to remove excess fat, the results will be long lasting.
Scarring is minimised via strategic incision points. During a male breast reduction procedure, the incision is made at the lower border of the areolar, which will make any minimal scarring inconspicuous.
There are some considerations to take before deciding to undergo Gynecomastia surgery. Ask yourself if you’ve considered the impact of:
Take time to understand what a reasonable outcome is by looking at the before and after photos.
Also, take time to plan your healing period. Typically, patients can expect to resume their daily activities in 5 days and can return to work after a week. Those in professions that require heavy lifting may need to take more time off. Patients should also avoid exercise over the period in which the compression vest must be worn.
