Male Breast Reduction

Male breast reduction is a very common cosmetic surgery with few risks. The procedure is typically used to help men with gynecomastia/gynaecomastia, a condition characterized by excess mammary tissue, or pseudogynecomastia which is a mixture of fatty and breast tissue. More and more men are visiting Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic to undergo breast reduction and create a more athletic and enhanced physique. This man boobs busting procedure has helped many men throughout Ireland and the UK feel better about their appearance. The clinic identified the need for men to address this cumbersome problem and helped improved the lives of gynaecomastia patients in Irish nationwide.

You’re in good hands

You are not alone. Up to 7% of men have the condition. Men from across the island of Ireland have gained lifestyle and confidence benefits of our gynecomastia treatments at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin.

Your step by step guide

First step is to identify with your problem having enlarged chest area. The problem is called gynaecomastia or man boobs. Gynecomastia can happen to men of any age, but 40% of cases start in adolescence. Medical literature reports suggest as many as 65 percent of teenage boys have gynecomastia, and in the vast majority of these teenage boys, the condition simply goes away on its own by the time they’re 18. The remaining 6 to 7 percent will continue to suffer this lifelong anomaly. There are men who begin to develop the enlarged breasts problem at older age, which can cause discomfort and poor self image. I see men resorting to baggy clothes, dark rooms and shying away from swimming. If you are a man who identifies with these concerns or struggles with more than usually large breasts, then male breast reduction at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin could be a good choice for you.

Step two is to seek advice and professional opinion. You need to book a consultation with me at the clinic by either calling the clinic (01-8278766) or emailing me in confidence drk@castleknockcosmetics.ie. I have been seeing men with gynaecomastia since 1999 and I’m a member of BABS (British Association of Body Sculpting) and BCAM. During your initial consultation the extent of the condition is identified. I will guide you through the various options of treatment available. These include surgical resection, fat freezing or VASER lipo. Every patient is different and while one option could be ideal for one man, it could be the wrong choice for another!

Third step is to get the procedure. Male breast reduction is an outpatient procedure normally done pain free under numbing anesthesia. It typically takes a couple of hours to perform. At your initial gynecomastia consultation in Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin, I would have examine how much fat, glandular material and excess skin are present.

The most modern and effective procedure for managing man boobs either gynaecomastia or pseudogynaecomastia is VASER Lipo. The procedure painlessly breaks down the targeted tissue when a VASER probe is inserted under the skin through small 3mm incision. The man boobs tissue is then simply suctioned out leaving an even and sculpted contour.

How about the recovery?

Recovery after the procedure will involve some bruising and tenderness but will subside over the next few days. Swelling will happen. You will usually wear a snug fitting compression garment around the chest for the first three to four weeks. The compression garment will help the swelling go down and accelerate healing. Most of our male breast reduction patients in Dublin return to work within three days after surgery. No sutures are used as the small 2-3mm skin openings heal quickly. You are then reviewed a few days later and if all is well you should return to physical activities a week later. In certain cases I would recommend manual lymphatic drainage massage to help accelerate the recovery process. Although visible reduction will be noted a week later, total recovery from all the swelling can take a few months.

Final results?

The results of your male breast reduction with VASER are permanent, although you are subject to changes in appearance if your weight fluctuates. Scarring is minimal and will fade with time. Once those man boobs are gone, they are usually gone for good.

The best treatment to eliminate gynecomastia is VASER lipo.
