Gynecomastia Sydney Surgery

Man boobs surgery by Sydney gynecomastia specialist Dr Mark Kohout has helped many men overcome the embarrassment of abnormally large breast tissue.

Gynecomastia can be the result of an imbalance of male and female hormones – testosterone and estrogen, respectively. It can affect one or both breasts, developing as a disc-shaped mound of tissue under the nipples and the areolas – the dark-coloured skin surrounding the nipple.

Gynecomastia is often associated with substantial weight gain or the use of anabolic steroids or marijuana. Certain medications can also lead to male breast enlargement.

Dr Kohout’s male gynecomastia surgery clinic eliminates excess breast fat and glandular tissue, which leaves the chest firmer, flatter and better contoured, and ends the multiple social problems gynecomastia can cause.

Psychological Issues Associated with Gynecomastia

Gynaecomastia is estimated to affect 40 percent to 60 percent of men, and the resulting unusually large breasts can make them so self-conscious that it impacts on their everyday life as they try to hide the problem beneath oversized shirts.

In a 2014 survey, many men with gynecomastia reported negative feelings about their condition, including anxiety, depression and emasculation. Other research has suggested a link between gynecomastia and erectile dysfunction.

For men like these, finding the best gynecomastia surgeon/gynecomastia specialist is the first step in getting safe, effective man boobs surgery that will enable them to live their lives full of confidence.

The Male Breast Reduction Procedure

During your gynecomastia Sydney consultation, Dr Kohout will examine your chest to confirm gynecomastia and rule out cancer.

Male breast reduction is usually performed under general anaesthesia or sedation. It entails excising glandular tissue and/or liposuction to reduce areas of fat. In rare cases, excess skin is also removed. Scarring can usually be concealed within the nipple.

Preparing for Your Procedure

Preparation for surgery involves stopping any medication you may be taking that increases the risk of bleeding. If you’re a smoker, you’ll need to stop that too. Top gynecomastia specialists like Dr Kohout, like all the best gynecomastia surgeons, will also advise you to ensure a healthy diet before the procedure to help your healing and recovery afterwards.

After the Procedure

If you needed liposuction alone for your gynecomastia procedure, you should be back at work in less than a week. If excess breast tissue was removed surgically, recovery can take two to four weeks.

Are There Any Risks with Gynecomastia Surgery?

Is Gynecomastia Surgery Right for You?

If your appearance with enlarged breasts is damaging your self-respect and quality of life, gynecomastia surgery can provide a permanent solution.

Gynecomastia surgery may also provide a solution to tighten the chest area after substantial weight loss that has resulted in sagging skin.
