With pictures of Leonardo Dicaprio surfacing across the Internet bearing his less than flattering “dad bod,” it has a lot of men questioning “Oh no. Is that what I look like without a shirt on?” Yes, while famous celebrities with loads of money and fame like Mr. Dicaprio might be able to get away from this infamous body type, the average Jo is less likely to receive anything short of an insult when bearing a similar resemblance. If you have either let your body go or if you have suddenly noticed the appearance of man boobs, don’t waste another minute and learn more about male breast gynecomastia surgery.
What is Male Breast Gynecomastia?
Male breast gynecomastia is a medical condition in which men develop the appearance of breasts either due to excessive weight gain or due to taking weight training supplements like steroids.
How Can It Be Treated?
Due to the embarrassing nature of male breast gynecomastia, it’s priority for many men to seek treatment as soon as possible. If you suffer from male breast gynecomastia, schedule an appointment with one of our specialists today. In order to properly treat male breast gynecomastia, you will have to undergo a surgical treatment that involves removing the fat and breast tissue that have developed around your breasts. After the excess fat and tissue has been removed, you will be stitched up and ready to start the healing process.
What is Recovery Time Like?
Similar to the healing process of female breast reduction surgery, you will be required to wear a compression wrap or shirt that will hold your breast area in place so that it can properly heal. You will also be restricted from things like heavy lifting, exercise, and lifting your arms above your head for long periods of time. Recovery from this surgery is usually around 2-4 weeks but it can vary depending on your specific body.
Although the term “dad bod” might be endearing to those that are rich and famous, it’s a term that can cause an awful lot of embarrassment for the average man. If you suffer from male breast gynecomastia and don’t want to live another day filled with embarrassment, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
