Is your chest embarrassing you?


 
A flat, firm chest is the dream of every man. Be it teenagers, or men in their middle ages, all of them aspire for a strong chest.

A sedentary lifestyle or hormonal imbalances are to be blamed. The surgical procedure to remove the male breast is called Gynecomastia. Gynecomastia Surgery in India is fast gaining popularity.

Gynecomastia Surgery-The answer to your embarrassment
An increasing portion of the male population is opting for mastectomy (surgery of the breast) to regain their desirable physique. As compared to other cosmetic surgical processes, it is considered to be relatively safer, accompanied by a high success quotient. But the patients need to do some homework before opting for the surgery. They should weigh both the advantages and disadvantages before opting for the surgery; it is a low-risk surgery,
with noticeable results. Choosing an experienced surgeon with a proven track record is the most crucial deciding factor. Don’t compromise on this account. Normally, one sitting is enough to see the desired changes. Similarly, some precautions need to be taken post surgery too.

These results can’t be achieved by liposuction procedure. The depth and the location of incisions depend on the amount of surgery required, but mostly, the area around the areola, also called the peri-areolar region is cut. The surgeon takes care to incise within the natural curves of the chest. He will also take care to make them as unnoticeable as possible.

Knock out the post surgery blues
1. Immediately after the surgery, patients can experience swelling and pain in the operated area. Normally, they can return to work after few week’s. Getting back to a regular exercise schedule, though could take a fortnight’s time.

3. The doctor advise the patient to wear a corset or a protective garment to safeguard the chest for atleast six weeks after the surgery. It ensures a speedy and safe recovery and proper healing.
4. For three weeks after the surgery, you should avoid lifting heavy weights.
5. Some patients might feel a loss of sensation in the operated area for a while, but it will fade away after a few months.
6. Last, but not the least, make a note of all the instructions and medicines given by the doctor. Complete the course of medicines given by him. Carefully follow the list of precautions advised by the doctor. Regularly take the painkillers prescribed by the doctor to feel comfortable.

The Pleasant Result
Now it’s time to take stock of the positive outcome-a flat, firm chest instead of the previous fat deposits. The surgical process has been done. Now, it is up to the patient to maintain his newly found physique and well-defined chest. He should take care about these:-

A SEROMA as a Gynecomastia Surgery Complication

You may never have heard of the word “seroma”, but in case, contemplating on undergoing a gynecomastia surgery in India, this may be the right time to learn about it.

What is Seroma?
In simple terms, the condition is also referred to as fluid build-up. A seroma is a pocket or an accumulation of clear serous fluid that commonly develops under the skin after a surgery. A seroma normally develops in sites where tissue has been removed or the surgical incision site.

Why Does it Occur?
By removing the glandular tissue or the additional fat from the body, it results in a space and injured, damaged or dying cells. Generally, undergoing a gynecomastia surgery presents seroma as a major complication since it is an extensive surgery.

Therefore, the surgeon’s experience and expertise can help prevent or minimize seroma occurrence and other complications after a gynecomastia surgery. 

How is Seroma Prevented after a Gynecomastia Surgery?
Basically, there are two approaches; i.e. inserting drainages and wearing a compression vest. 

Drains are termed as an effective approach to preventing seroma. The drains are made of tubes that transport the clear serous fluid from the surgical site (breast) to a small plastic bulb with negative pressure. Dressings are applied after which a patient is required to wear a compression vest.

The drains are normally removed after 3 days and this will probably be your first post-operative return to the cosmetic centre. The compression vest can be removed before showering, but it has to be worn at all times for a period of four to six months.
