Men who have excessive breast tissue are often the butt of jokey comments about ‘man boobs’ but for those who are affected by this it is not a laughing matter. It can help to know what exactly is behind the condition of gynecomastia and why some are affected but not others.
Gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts) – “Gyne” stands for female and “mastia” stands for the breast. Gynecomastia is strictly a male disorder which occurs due to enlargement of the glands. Sometimes it is caused by an accumulation of fatty tissue – when breast enlargement is caused by fatty tissue alone it is known as pseudo-gynecomastia.
Why Compression is Key to a Good Result After Liposuction or Gynecomastia Procedures
Have you been advised to wear a compression garment after surgery but you’re not sure why? After undergoing any type of cosmetic surgery procedure, the body needs time to heal and recover. This recovery process is important to both lower the risk of complications, as well as enhance the overall results of the surgery.
Gynecomastia is a deformity that has plagued my life since I’ve been 13 years old.
13 is such a tender age, an age where you take life as it comes and not think an awful lot about your actions. However I was always so self-conscious about my chest and this turned me into a very insecure person, leading me to think very carefully about everything I ever did i.e. wear lays of clothes anywhere I went.
