Gynecomastia is the condition that causes male breast tissue to swell. Abnormal growth of the breasts in men can occur in boys or man boobs can occur at any age and is usually caused by hormonal imbalances. According to recent reports, gynecomastia is most common among bodybuilders who use anabolic steroids. While the condition does not cause medical complications, most men find it very embarrassing. Gynecomastia treatment in Manhattan NYC is the most effective way to address male breast enlargement and achieve a more well-defined upper body that will boost your confidence and self-image.
Gynecomastia can develop due to various factors:
- Obesity – Being overweight can lead to higher levels of estrogen in the body.
- Thyroid disorders – Hyperthyroidism can cause increase in estrogen in comparison to testosterone.
- Injury or trauma – Testicular injury due to trauma, viral orchitis (mumps), or bacterial infections
- Kidney and liver problems: Liver problems and cirrhosis can cause changes in hormone levels
- Drugs:Use of recreational and anabolic drugs and medications can disrupt the natural testosterone-estrogen balance
Gynecomastia usually develops during puberty. In most case, the condition resolves on its own over time (6 months to 2 or 3 years) without any treatment. If a medication is responsible for the condition, you may have to stop taking it. If a disease has been identified as the cause of the condition, it would need to be treated. Gynecomastia is also treated using prescription medications that control the estrogen hormone. However, these medications can have side effects. Fortunately, there is a safe and effective solution – gynecomastia treatment or breast reduction surgery using Smartlipo Triplex.
Male breast enlargement can occur in one or both breasts and affect them unevenly. The first sign is usually a lump or fatty tissue beneath the nipple, which can cause soreness. The development of a firm, symmetrical rubbery mass that extends concentrically from the nipple is also an indication of the condition. The symptoms of gynecomastia are similar to that of certain medical issues. Your Manhattan liposuction surgeon will recommend treatment only after performing a thorough evaluation.
Liposuction is the gold standard for removing excess fat from various areas of the body, which makes it an ideal option to address enlargement of the male breasts. Smartlipo laser liposuction for men in NYC is a minimally invasive procedure performed using the FDA-approved Smartlipo device that features 3 laser wavelengths (1440, 1064 and 1320). The procedure begins with the surgeon administering local anesthesia and creating a small incision to insert the device’s small laser-assisted cannula into the adipose tissue. Laser energy is delivered to target the fat and liquefy it, allowing it to be easily suctioned off. The treatment also coagulates the tissues and tightens the surrounding skin. Smartlipo comes with intelligent features to prevent overtreatment.
The results of the procedure are immediately visible, though the final results may take 3-6 months to appear. Post-surgical swelling will resolve after some time. While your plastic surgeon will place the incision lines in the natural contours of your chest, some may be visible.
Though permanent, the incision lines will fade over time. Though just a single treatment can provide optimal results, another surgery may be needed to further tighten the breasts or correct any complications that may occur.
