Excessive fatty tissue in the chest, or gynaecomastia, can make men feel self-conscious and under confident about their body shape and more and more men are now looking for Male Chest Reduction. Gynaecomastia is a common condition characterized by the benign enlargement of breast tissue in males. It may occur transiently in newborns. Half or more of adolescent boys have some breast development during puberty. Newborn and adolescent males frequently experience temporary gynecomastia due to the influence of maternal hormones and hormonal changes during puberty, respectively.
Gynecomastia may arise as an abnormal condition associated with disease, such as Klinefelter Syndrome, metabolic disorders, as a side-effect of medication, or as a result of the natural decrease of testosterone production in older males. In adolescent boys, the condition is often a source of psychological distress; however, 75% of pubertal gynecomastia cases resolve within two years of onset without treatment. If treatment is required, minimally invasive fat removal procedures can re-shape the area and don’t require a general anaesthetic or hospital stay. The ultrasound VASER Liposuction procedure is Dr.Comins’s preferred procedure for Gynaecomastia and is an effective treatment that requires little downtime.
