Feel Guilty and conscious about your male breasts, or MOOBS (Man BOOBS)

Date :30-Aug-2018

Male breast or Gynecomastia is a condition in which a young man has a womanly breast enlargement. It is an extremely common condition with anywhere from 1 in 3 – 4 men being affected Gynaecomastia commonly results from an imbalance of the male, female hormones during the pubertal period. Nowadays the use of anabolic steroids to build muscle mass in Gyms has also lead to drug-induced Gynaecomastia. There are other rarer medical, hormonal, chromosomal causes of Gynaecomastia. Gynecomastia creates a very severe psychological impact amongst men which can lead them into depression, and anxiety.


Exercise and dieting have no effects on reducing Gynaecomastia; similarly, no lotions, massage, or pills can help once you have Gynaecomastia.

Gynaecomastia surgery involves a combination of MicroLipo with the removal of the enlarged gland under Local Anesthesia and Sedation.

Gynecomastia surgery procedure:

The patient is made comfortable by the anesthetist and both the chests are made numb by Local Anesthesia. Following this MicroLipo of the chest area is performed and after an even contour of the chest is achieved, any residual glandular tissue is removed through a small cut at the lower margin of the areola or through the nipple.

Dissolving sutures are taken and a Pressure Garment is put on top of the dressings. The patient is kept in hospital for a 24-hour observation and then discharged. There is very little pain following surgery, and most patients are back to normal activities in 3 – 5 days. The Pressure garment should be worn for 1 month 24/7 being taken off only for taking a bath. Your surgeon might advice additional wearing of the garment. While you will see the result the very next day, the result will improve and stabilize over the next 1 – 3 months. It is highly unlikely and rare for the gynecomastia to come back once removed.

This surgery should be performed by a qualified surgeon to re-create an attractive flat and masculine chest.
