What is Gynecomastia?
Although you have probably never heard the term Gynecomastia, it is something that many people have seen and just do not know what it is exactly. This condition is the over development of breasts in boys and men. It is caused by an imbalance of hormones, and due to this it can develop during puberty. Any man of any age could have Gynecomastia, especially if they go through a time with unbalanced hormones. Gynecomastia can develop in one of both breasts, sometimes unevenly. This condition is not a serious health risk in most cases. That being said it can be difficult to deal with emotionally and mentaly. Gynecomastia can seriously affect a person’s confidence in themselves and the way they look. If this is the case there are procedures to help you regain confidence in your body. In some cases the abnormal breasts can go back to normal within six months to about two years. In others a breast reduction surgery can help.
Getting a breast reduction surgery can give you your confidence back. This procedure will remove any excess fat, or tissues from the affected breasts. This procedure will give you flatter and firmer breasts. The skin will also be better contoured. After this procedure you can be proud of your appearance again. This procedure is used when other medical treatments can not correct your condition.
After the procedure you will need some time to recover. Results from the procedure may not be apparent right away as there needs to be time for healing and for the swelling to go down. Consult your Plastic Surgery Utah surgeon to find out if this is the right path for you to take. They will talk to you about risk factors, recovery time, what will happen during the procedure, and if you are a candidate for it.
