Gynecomastia: what is it?

Body builders are at a higher risk because of hormone and steroid use. Such substances also complicate the treatment at a certain level; this is why, it is good to choose a physician who has experience in treating gynecomastia in body builders.
Any man who suffers from male breasts enlargement can benefit from the surgery. After the surgery, a man will enjoy better self-confidence and he will interact more easily with friends and family. It relieves the social stigma which is attached to enlarged male breasts and it helps in freeing up the mind from distressing thoughts. It helps men to wear the clothes that fit better and to stop wearing baggy shirts which concealed the breast fat.
How is the procedure performed?
For some men, the problem disappears without medical intervention. This is especially true with men who had developed this problem during adolescence. When the problem refuses to resolve by itself, surgical treatment will be needed. The doctor will remove the extra breast tissue and fat so that the skin can look flatter and you can have a body contour that looks masculine.
This procedure is done on an outpatient basis with the use of general anesthesia or local anesthesia. Some men will recover faster after the procedure and in one week, they can go back to their activities. The scars will look minimal after the procedure and the incision will be put around the areola.
