What Causes Man Boobs?

When this happens, surgery is required to reduce their size and create a flatter-looking chest.

Dr. Adam Najem is a highly skilled gynaecomastia practitioner in Sydney. He has had several years of experience performing this procedure and has earned a stellar reputation for delivering outstanding results.

During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. Najem will listen your needs, aesthetic goals, and expected outcomes. He will ask you all sorts of questions pertaining to your medical history and current health situation to assess your physical and emotional health. Be prepared to answer questions about prescription medications, recreational drugs, smoking and allergies. He will also address any concerns or questions you may have and help you explore the options available to you.

Dr. Najem will also make a note of your breast size and shape, positioning of the nipples, and any differences between the breasts. Accordingly he will formulate a personalized plan that’s tailored especially for you.

Dr. Najem encourages his patients to ask questions and voice any concerns they may have. After you are fully satisfied with the answers and are ready to proceed with the procedure, a date will be set.

What To Expect After The Procedure

The results of a man boob surgery can be noticeably immediately. These results vary among patients. Each patient will have a different outcome depending on their amount of fat to be removed, their body type, and desired outcome.

While swelling is minimal after male breast reduction procedures, there will be a little puffiness and bruising around the area where the procedure was done. This will settle over the course of 6 weeks and subside completely after 3 months.

For optimal results, you must rest completely for a minimum of 12 hours immediately after the procedure and avoid strenuous activity for a few days after. You can start gentle exercises around 1 to 2 weeks later.

Meticulously following both pre-and post-op directions will also help ensure the best results.

Important Things To Take Into Consideration Before Opting For Man Boob Surgery

There are a few very important factors you need to take into considerations before deciding to undergo gynaecomastia surgery. Overlooking these could negatively impact the outcome of the procedure.

  • It’s advisable to wait until the breast tissues are fully developed before considering any surgery to reduce their size. Protruding breasts that develop during adolescence usually reduce in the size as the extra fat and tissue in the breast area dissipate when hormones settle down in your early twenties.
  • Your weight must be stable in order to maintain the results of your procedure. If you are overweight, you will have to lose weight before undergoing male breast reduction surgery. After the procedure, you will have to continue making an effort to keep your weight stable as a lot of weight gain could cause the breasts to increase in size again.
  • Smokers are at higher risk of surgery-related complications. Your doctor may advise you against the procedure if you’re a smoker. If you are serious about getting gynaecomastia surgery to reduce your man boobs, you will have to quit smoking for at least a few weeks prior to the procedure.
  • Man boob surgery requires incisions. These are very tiny and strategically placed in the natural contours of the breasts and areola so they are unnoticeable. Even the minimally visible marks will fade away over time. Sometimes however, the incisions may be visible or may not fade away completely. It’s important to understand that this could be a possibility.
  • You may experience reduced sensation in the nipples and surrounding areas.
  • When scheduling time for your gynaecomastia surgery, you must factor in the healing period. This is critical to the success of the procedure. Typically, patients can expect to resume their daily activities in 5 days and can return to work after about 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.
  • Take time to understand what a reasonable outcome is by looking at the before and after photos. Not all outcomes are achievable. A lot will depend on your natural body structure, the contours of your upper torso, and the amount of fat and tissue that needs to be removed. If you harbour unreasonable preconceived ideas of how you want your chest to look you will be disappointed in the outcome despite the improved appearance.

Male breast reduction surgery is not recommended for males in their early teenage years. It’s best to wait till you’re in your late teens or early twenties and then consult with a gynaecomastia practitioner. Gynecomastia usually develops during the teenage years because of the surge of hormones at this time. In most cases, the excess fat and tissue will dissipate and your breast size will reduce naturally as your hormones stabilize in your twenties. It can be tough but it’s best to be patient and avoid unnecessary man boob surgery in your teens.

Ideally, you should be at your optimum weight before scheduling a gynaecomastia procedure. This is because the skin around the breast area may start to sag after you lose the excess weight, negating the effects of the surgery.

Ideally BMI of < 32 .
