The overdevelopment of breasts in men due to genetic, hormonal, or medication consumption is called gynecomastia. Thanks to the scientific advances in the field, the condition is easily fixed via plastic surgery. Gynecomastia surgery in Dubai by Paradise Polyclinic is a cosmetic surgery used to get rid of overdeveloped and saggy breasts in men.
Generally, sex hormone levels, testosterone for men and estrogen for women, differ in the body. And naturally so, the estrogen hormone is higher in women and testosterone in men. But when the natural balance of these sex hormones is disrupted for whatever reason, the effects will manifest themselves in that person`s physic. For instance, when a man reaches puberty or suffers a certain disease, the change in his testosterone levels triggers, also a change in his estrogen levels; and in such a condition, he might develop what are sometimes called “man boobs.” Physicians examine the patient and often suggest gynecomastia to remove such saggy and feminine-looking breasts in men.
Why Undergo Gynecomastia Surgery?
Gynecomastia surgery is the cosmetic solution for overdeveloped breast tissue in men, where the breasts have grown larger than normal for men.
Despite popular belief that gynecomastia is carried out only for cosmetic purposes, the surgery holds a great deal of psychological medical worth. In some cases, the overdeveloped breasts cause much pain around the neck and shoulder area. On the other hand, men with such conditions often feel ashamed and lack self-confidence that directly influences their movement and standing patterns, which in turn and in the long run will cause various pains in the back and shoulder areas. Further, developing skin allergies under the overdeveloped breasts is another source of many problems in men with gynecomastia. Other reasons that convince one to seek treatment include being limited with the exercises one can perform and developing psychological issues.
