Male Breast Reduction In Mumbai

The feminine appearance of a male chest due to enlargement of breast tissue is known as gynecomastia. Commonly known as manboobs or moobs can be a cause for a lot of embarrassment, shame, insecurity and self-consciousness. Male breast reduction surgery involves removing the excess breast gland and fat to reshape your chest to more masculine contour and a well-balanced frame.

Mumbai Male Breast Reduction, What is Gynecomastia?

Overdeveloped male breasts can occur due to the presence of excess fat or breast glandular tissue in one or both breasts. Localised accumulation of fat in the chest as a result of weight gain or obesity is known as pseudogynecomastia and may reduce with diet and exercise. True gynecomastia is the presence of breast glandular tissue and does not improve despite diet and exercise. It can be a cause of severe psychosocial discomfort in men resulting in a reluctance to go shirtless in public. Self-confidence is often affected due to constant self-consciousness and humiliation affecting routine activities like swimming, working out at the gym or even wearing well-fitting tee shirts.

It is common in adolescent boys and older men due to fluctuation and imbalance in sex hormones. In most of these cases, breast glandular tissue disappears without any treatment within two years. However, the presence of breast tissue after two years can be an indication for surgery. Steroids, drugs (medication), genetic, and some hormonal and systemic diseases are other causes of gynecomastia. Gynecomastia surgery or male breast reduction removes the breast gland and fat to give you a flatter, firmer chest with improved contours. It can help you gain more self-confidence in being comfortable in better fitting clothes or being bare-chested.
