Loose Skin After Gynecomastia Surgery

The ratio is predicted that one in four men from the ages between 50 and 69 are affected by gynecomastia, a condition which causes enlarged male breasts. It will not only restrict your ability to wear certain clothing, such as fashion fitted clothes, but most men with gynecomastia feel some degree of body shame. This may keep you away from doing activities like going to the beach or working out at the gym.

 

 

The internet helped patients realize that there are good and many treatment options for
gynecomastia. You do not need to live with “man boobs” if you don’t want to. A lot of sites tout
the benefits of liposuction for treating gynecomastia, but liposuction alone only works for certain
patients.

 

 

Gynecomastia, pseudogynecomastia or loose skin around areola?

The first tip to prepare yourself for gynecomastia surgery is to figure out which procedure suits and addresses your needs. This needs an in-person exam with a plastic surgeon. The doctor will assess your anatomy to check whether or not the fullness in your chest is due to:

 

• Too much breast tissue
• Excess fat
• Both breast tissue and fat
• Loose skin around the areolar

 

In many older men and people having massive weight loss, can have loose skin around the areola as post results. This can easily be corrected with an areola reduction. For patients with pseudogynecomastia, a smooth, flat chest can be achieved with the help of liposuction. However, most gynecomastia patients have either excess of fat and/or breast tissue. For those category of people, a surgical procedure is necessary. Men who lose a lot of weight may also need some skin removal and the chest “lift’” in addition to liposuction and gland removal.

 

Exercise, diet and gynecomastia
The tip to prepare for gynecomastia surgery is to manage and balance your diet and exercise
regimen. You will need to stop the prescription medicine or recreational drug before surgery, if
gynecomastia is a result of it. If your full chest is a result too much fat, you can lose the excess
weight by:

 

 

  • Upping your intake of fruits and vegetables.
  • Restrict the amount of sugar.
  • Reducing the number of beverages having alcohol.
  • Dedicating 30 minutes to cardiovascular exercise at least three times a week.
  • Doing resistance workouts with bands, weights or balls.

 

This will help to get rid of excess fat around chest without the need for surgery. Improving your
diet and exercise regime will benefit your overall health, even if you are a surgical candidate.
Healthier your tissues and skin, the faster your body will heal and recover.

 

Recovery from surgery
One should keep realistic expectations when it comes to recovery. A satisfied patient is someone who loves his surgical outcome, but also the one who knows what to expect after surgery. With both gynecomastia and liposuction surgery, expect bruises and swelling for at least two weeks. With surgery, there will probably have drains for 24 to 48 hours. All gynecomastia patients wear a compression vest for the first three weeks 24/7 and then for the next two months for 12 hours each day, which helps in reducing swelling and helps in achieving great result.

 

In terms of exercise, one need to take it easy for the first week after surgery. Light cardio in week 2 and heavier workouts by week three can be followed. You will want to avoid upper body work for at least 4-6 weeks. No matter which procedure you are getting, the final results are going to take time, so one needs to be patient. Your chest may look different and irregular at first, but this all resolve with time. Also, keep in mind that no man’s chest is completely flat with zero breast gland. You want to look like the best version of you, not an alien.
