Gynecomastia Treatment in Toronto: Am I a Candidate?
You might be a Toronto male breast reduction candidate if you have a significant amount of excess fat, glandular tissue or skin in your chest area. If you have tried exercise and dieting without success, gynecomastia surgery might be an answer. While the precise causes of gynecomastia are unknown, it is presumed that this condition is genetic. In many males, gynecomastia begins during puberty and resolves by itself over time. However, in some men the condition persists, or even worsens, into adulthood. Older men can also experience gynecomastia as part of the aging process. The enlarged chest often causes embarrassment and prevents men from fully enjoying various sports, water and beach activities. Gynecomastia surgery can provide a permanent solution to these concerns by creating a flat, masculine chest.
Preparing for Your Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Before your surgery, we will meet with you personally to discuss your aesthetic concerns and desires and to decide which male breast reduction method is best for you.We will also provide you with a list of detailed presurgical instructions. You will be asked to discuss any medications and supplements you are taking and to quit smoking at least several weeks prior to your treatment. These precautions are necessary because cigarettes, as well as certain medications, can affect the blood flow, prolonging healing and causing unnecessary complications.
Male Breast Reduction: How Is It Performed?
Depending on the extent of your gynecomastia, we might use one of several male breast reduction techniques. If you have a relatively small amount of excess fat, we might be able to achieve the desired results through liposuction alone. However, most Toronto gynecomastia treatment patients require a more comprehensive approach. Thus, we typically create one or several small incisions, through which we remove excess fat and/or glandular tissue. We may also excise redundant skin. The best approach for you can be determined only during a personal consultation with our medical staff.
