Male Breast Reduction IN BANGKOK, THAILAND
Gynecomastia is a condition in which the male breast tissue swells, causing the development of enlarged breasts. It is commonly caused by an imbalance between the male hormone testosterone and the female hormone estrogen.
Gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction, is a safe and effective treatment for overdeveloped male breasts either by using liposuction, breast tissue excision or a combination of both. The aim is to remove fat and/or glandular tissue from the breasts for a flatter, firmer and a more aesthetically pleasing chest.
Am I a Suitable Candidate for Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
Good candidates for gynecomastia surgery include generally healthy, non-smoking men who are bothered about enlarged breasts and whose condition cannot be improved via alternative treatments.
Male breast reduction is not a substitute for weight loss, nor is it suitable for heavily overweight patients.
Medical history assessment (any allergies, serious medical conditions and all medications taken, both prescribed and non-prescribed), physical examination, and laboratory tests will be performed during your consultation.
Male Breast Reduction by Liposuction
In cases where gynecomastia is mainly the result of excess fatty tissue, liposuction alone may be enough. The liposuction method requires insertion of a cannula (a thin, hollow tube) through several small incisions.
The cannula is then moved back and forth in a controlled motion to loosen the excess fat, which is then suctioned away from the body by a high-pressure liposuction vacuum.
Male breast reduction by liposuction is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under local anaesthesia, and you will be able to return home soon after treatment is finished.
