Temperatures are soaring in sunny Phoenix, and there’s no doubt that summer is in full swing. With the sun shining brightly, most people look forward to enjoying their favorite summer activities. However, for those struggling with Gynecomastia, the intense Arizona heat can make summer particularly challenging. Fortunately, Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery offers relief with gynecomastia surgery.

What Is Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by the enlargement of glandular tissue in male breasts, often contributing to the appearance of female breasts. This can be caused by hormonal imbalances, genetics, certain medications, or underlying health conditions. For individuals troubled by gynecomastia, surgical correction, known as gynecomastia surgery or male breast reduction, offers an effective solution. The procedure typically involves liposuction to remove excess fat and glandular tissue from the chest area, with the option of excising skin if necessary for a smoother chest contour.

Recovery involves wearing a compression garment to reduce swelling and support the newly sculpted chest. The outcome is a flatter, more masculine chest appearance that can significantly boost self-esteem and improve overall body proportions, providing long-lasting satisfaction for patients affected by gynecomastia.

Why Might Someone Get Gynecomastia Surgery

As a condition, gynecomastia is very rarely dangerous, and while it doesn’t often pose physical threats, it can be rather detrimental when it comes to a man’s confidence and mental health. Outdoor-centric summer activities like swimming or playing sports, the very heart of Phoenix summers, can become sources of anxiety for those suffering from gynecomastia as the prospect of taking off their shirt can be very uncomfortable. The thought of heavy, unforgiving summer attire only amplifies the challenges, leading many to withdraw from social activities. Gynecomastia surgery instills confidence and comfort in one’s body by establishing a more masculine chest contour.

Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia involves making small incisions around the areola or in the natural chest creases to remove excess glandular tissue and fat. In some cases, liposuction may be used to suction out fatty deposits and further sculpt the chest contours. If necessary, glandular tissue may be excised to achieve a flatter, more masculine chest appearance. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, ensuring patient comfort throughout.

Gynecomastia Recovery

Recovery involves wearing a compression garment to minimize swelling and support the newly contoured chest, with most patients able to resume light activities within a few days and return to normal routines within a few weeks. Results gradually improve as swelling subsides, providing patients with a more defined chest contour and enhanced confidence in their appearance.

Back to Overview

A breast cancer diagnosis is overwhelming in so many ways. There are a lot of emotions. Dr. Ali Mosharrafa and his entire staff put me at ease at every step. After surgery, I was very self conscious, and the way I was treated with each visit helped me as much as the excellent medical care. Whether it is for an elective procedure or a surgery due to illness, I cannot endorse Dr. Ali more as a physician and human.
