Large (hypertrophic) breasts are the consequence of the medical condition and a cosmetic defect. Large breasts are usually sagging, as well. This condition is also connected with the upper body posture problems and backache. If this condition persists for a long period of time, it can lead to thoracic and spinal deformity.
Men can also have breast disorders, such as Gynecomastia.
If the health condition assessment shows there is a large amount of adipose tissue, Liposuction can be performed as a separate procedure, after which the patient is required to wear the compression bra. Some 2-3 months following the procedure, the physician can determine how much the skin retracted and if additional excess skin removal is to be carried out.
If the glandular tissue of the breast is abundant, usually the standard breast reduction and lift are performed, called the Reduction Mammoplasty.
The procedure is carried out under the general anaesthesia, and it requires a comprehensive health condition assessment. The very procedure takes some 2-3 hours. The recovery from anaesthesia lasts for 6-8 hours, and for the following several weeks the patient is required to wear the protective bra.
The scars are visible around areolas, towards the thorax, and in case of a more complex procedure in the inframammary folds (in the form of an inverted letter T).
If the male breasts are too large with respect to the size of the thorax, the Liposuction treatment will suffice.
The standard gland removal procedure is performed only in case of the enlarged gland. The incision is usually hidden in the area where the mammilla grows into the surrounding tissue.
