According to some reports, it has been assessed that one in four men are affected by Gynecomastia. Gynecomastia or the enlargement of the male breast is such a condition that affects men mentally and inhibits them from wearing tight-fitted t-shirts. Now, this condition of overdeveloped or enlarged male breast mostly occurs as a result of hormonal imbalance in the body or due to the accumulation of excess fatty tissues and loose skin. However, for some people, the problem gets resolved on its own, and some may find dieting and exercise useful to get rid of this condition. But other men need to opt for Gynecomastia surgery to get rid of the situation.
But before undergoing a Gynecomastia surgery, you must prepare yourself and figure out what are the problem areas that you want to address. This article will explain the four most crucial tips to remember before deciding to undergo such a surgical procedure-
- Choosing the right surgeon for Gynecomastia surgery- Before deciding to undergo a chest surgery, it is essential to choose the right surgeon. Right surgeon includes a board-verified, experienced surgeon who is capable of assessing the exact underlying cause of Gynecomastia and has performed numerous Gynecomastia surgeries in the past. Being under a trained, experienced, and a board-certified surgeon implies that you are in the right hands, and you are most likely to accomplish the best result. It is only a proficient surgeon who can assess the exact cause of Gynecomastia as it may occur due to various reasons like hormonal imbalance, the effect of steroids or side effects of other drugs. This is because the surgeon determines the correct treatment procedure based on the underlying cause of Gynecomastia.
- Analyzing the exact cause of Gynecomastia– Before undergoing a gynecomastia surgery, the surgeon first evaluates the precise cause of breast enlargement because, in men, the fullness of the chest can occur due to several factors. In many older men, sometimes an abrupt weight loss results in the fullness of the chest, which ultimately results in the formation of loose skin around the areolar area. However, this condition can easily be corrected with an areolar skin reduction process. Now some patients may have swollen breasts due to the presence of some excess fatty tissues, and this condition is termed as pseudo-gynecomastia. For such people undergoing liposuction can provide them with a flat contoured chest. Now people who are originally suffering from Gynecomastia need to undergo a breast tissue surgical excision and a fat removal procedure to achieve a contoured breast appearance.
- Lead a healthy lifestyle-Maintaining, a healthy lifestyle is essential. Everyone knows that eating healthy will create a positive impact on your life. But before undergoing a gynecomastia treatment surgery, it is incredibly vital to maintaining a healthy diet. As overweight men who might be bearing breast enlargement can maintain an overall healthy diet before surgery to shed a few pounds and reduce the number of fatty tissues. Additionally, apart from eating healthy, consumption of alcohol or smoking cigarettes must also be strictly avoided as that hinders the blood flow and may give rise to some complications.
- Maintain a realistic expectation– It is incredibly essential to maintain a realistic expectation when it comes to recovery. So following the gynecomastia surgery recovery tips that are provided by the surgeon is necessary. Until two weeks after undergoing the surgical procedure, some swelling and bruising are expected. The patients are also instructed to wear a compression garment for the first two months to reduce the swelling and accomplish the most contoured appearance
