Man Boobs, Moobs, Male Gynecomastia .....
Gynaecomastia (more commonly known as Man Boobs or Moobs) are an increasing concern for the male population. It is the abnormal fullness of the breast region in males; this tissue being either adipose (fat) or glandular.
In teenage males it is not uncommon to get some glandular development, which may be embarrasing. It may also be tender or even lactate (produce milk).
Although it will usually resolve without intervention, sometimes surgical removal is performed. However, we also see young men with purely fatty gynaecomastia, which is treated with liposculpture.
For the reduction of the adipose (fat) tissue in males a simple liposculpture procedure can be performed. Like most liposculpture it may be performed under twilight sedation in our day hospital at Academy Facial Plastics.
The procedure takes about 90 minutes and you go home wearing a compression vest over some absorbative pads. The vest is worn for 2 weeks. There is some discomfort/stiffness but an improvement is seen immediately – however best results usually take up to 4 months. Fortunately the skin usually retracts very well.A Medicare rebate may be applicable for this procedure. For more information please see our liposculpture page.
