Male Breast Reduction Surgery in Merrylands

merrylands-male-breast-reduction-surgery

A man having breasts or man boobs is relatively abnormal but not uncommon and many afflicted individuals will choose to seek out male breast reduction surgery.

Man boobs can be hereditary, or due to a misuse of medications, among a number of other potential causes. They are the reason why many young men develop body consciousness or self esteem issues. A simple male breast reduction is an often uncomplicated process that can give you a flat and firm chest. The operation reduces excess fat and glandular tissues in a male's chest.

As of 2019, according to a report, there was a 19% increase in patients that underwent male breast reduction.

However, before the effect of a problem can be removed, the cause must be known and examined carefully. Please book an appointment with one of our GP's for a pre-surgery consultation.

What causes man boobs?

Enlarged male boobs are otherwise known as gynecomastia. It occurs as a result of proliferated glandular tissue in men. Men are not born to have protruded breasts like women. Gynecomastia is caused by increased male estrogen production and decreased testosterone levels during puberty.

Alternatively, the presence of excess fat in a man's chest is another cause of man boobs.

With both cases, a simple male breast reduction surgery can alleviate men of this affliction.

 

What Is Involved In The Male Breast Reduction Surgery?

Male breast reduction is not a general surgery carried out anywhere. It is often a specific operation carried out by a specialist surgeon. Woodville Road Medical Clinic has one such specialist with years of experience in male breast reduction.

There are two methods for a Man Boob Reduction Surgery:

  1. The Use of Liposuction

Treating gynecomastia with the use of liposuction involves the use of local anesthesia with sedation. This surgery is executed with a small incision on the sides of the chest or within the armpit. Through this, the surgeon removes excess fat and glandular tissues from the chest, and at the same time, shapes the chest to that which best fits.

Patients are given contraction garments to reduce swelling and aid quick healing. Specific instructions will be given to every patient by the surgeon to aid with for the rapid recovery of the tissues.

 

  1. Treating Gynecomastia Using Tissue Incision

Cases with significant sagging skin around the breast require a treatment other than liposuction. These patients are offered tissue incision.

This involves the removal of glandular tissues. Incisions are made around the creases of the chest for the removal of excess fat.

Male breast reduction surgery through tissue incision involves the use of general anesthesia. For recovery, patients are given constriction garments to reduce swelling and aid quick tissue healing.

 

It is vitfor patients to first see a GP for advice and to see if surgery is the best choice for you. After the surgery, follow all instructions given by the surgeon.

Common Reasons to see your Merrylands ENT Doctor

Allergies and Hayfever:

An allergy is the response of the human immune system to external substances, or allergens. They are contacted by touching, inhaling, eating, or injecting them into our bodies.

While Allergies are of two forms, namely indoor and outdoor allergies, they also occur either around the year or in specific seasons. There are various types of allergies. Grass and weed pollen, pets, dust mites, cockroaches, and mold spores are all common allergy triggers. Hayfever, an allergy triggered majorly by pollen, is found among 10-30% of the world's population.

Symptoms of Allergies

  • Sneezing
  • A runny or blocked nose
  • Nasal pain
  • Itching of the ear, nose, and throat
  • Postnatal drips
  • Headache

Prevention and Treatment

In general, allergies do not have a cure but could be managed. Further, the best prevention of allergies is avoiding allergens or allergy triggers. Various treatments are available, and seeing a GP or ENT doctor is recommended.

Sinusitis

Sinusitis is also a common ENT issue that occurs due to the inflammation of the paranasal sinuses. Hence, sinusitis affects effective breathing and also makes the nose stuffy. Most times, sinusitis could either be chronic or acute. While acute sinusitis occurs for a short while (1-4 weeks) and is generally associated with cold, chronic occurs for a longer time, for instance, three months and above. Its causes include allergies, viruses, bacteria, and fungi.

Symptoms

  • Nasal inflammation
  • Postnasal drainage
  • Nasal congestion
  • Insensitivity to smell and taste
  • Fatigue
  • Pains
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Cough amidst many others.

Treatment and Preventive Measures:

Preventive measures include avoiding smoking, managing or avoiding allergens, maintaining proper hygiene, staying in a moist environment, and keeping a distance from individuals with respiratory challenges.

Medications are available, such as nasal irrigation using saline nasal sprays. Resting adequately, inhaling steam and using decongestant tablets are also options, and in extreme cases you may require surgery. See a GP or specialist to recommend the treatment most suitable to your condition.

Snoring:

Approximately 45% of adults snore, and of these, about 25% will do this often. Snoring can become disturbing to partners or other people sleeping close to a snorer. These sounds are the result of a blockage of air passage through the nose or mouth. A sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnea is often connected to snoring most times. Apart from blockage of the nose and throat, snoring could also result from the use of drugs and alcohol, sleeping on your back, lack of adequate sleeping time, or being overweight.

Remedies and treatments

  • Have a sleeping schedule and stick to it
  • Always sleep sideways
  • Elevate the head of your bed a bit
  • Open your airways with decongestants(with doctor permission)
  • Change lifestyle
  • Wearing plastic in your mouth to keep your airway open

Nosebleeds

A nosebleed is the blood loss from tissues found inside the nose. Though the sight of this blood loss might be frightening, however, this is often a minor issue. There are instances where it can be a chronic issue that requires a doctor or ENT specialist. Anterior and posterior nosebleed are the common forms of nosebleed. While the anterior type is common among children and starts from the front of the nose, the other is common among adults and begins deep inside the nose. Its causes range from nose picking, allergic reaction, repeated sneezing, cold air, irritation of chemicals, fixed external item in the nose, cold air, infection in the upper part of the respiratory system, nose injury, and many others.

Prevention and Treatments

  • Avoid nose-picking
  • Blow your nose gently
  • Protect your nose during harmful activities
  • Follow nasal decongestants instructions.

Men's Sexual Health is often a delicate process and many men at some point in their lives will experience problems such Erectile Dysfunction or Ejaculation Dysfunction.  The ongoing inability to achieve sexual satisfaction can often result in significant problems in a relationship or cause a significant amount of emotional stress.

Erectile Dysfunction (Impotence) and Ejaculation Dysfunction, are common problems with a large effect on men's sexual health and are significant impediments to achieving sexual satisfaction. Problems with male sexual arousal can be caused by either physical or psychological issues, or a combination of both. In some instances, the initial problem could be physical and then cause significant mental and emotional stress. This stress can in turn, exacerbate any existing erectile problems.

Ejaculation and erection problems can occur from time to time without any underlying problems. However if these problems are consistent, we highly recommend seeing your Merrylands doctor or GP. Treatments are available, and in some instances, these problems could be a sign of heart disease, or caused by some underlying health condition in urgent need of attention.
