Why suffer the ignominy of living with gynecomastia? Help is readily available at Amaris B. Clinic!
Chiselled from countless bench presses, nothing quite frames a proud chest like a pair of well-developed pectoral muscles to highlight a gym-trained physique.
For most of us, this can be achieved with enough hard work at the gym and watching our diet.
But in some instances, difficulty in developing an ideal physique doesn’t come from not trying but from a medical condition beyond our control – gynecomastia (commonly referred to as man boobs or moobs).
Yes, men can have breasts too. Unfortunately, what looks great on women can be embarrassing for the opposite sex.
Enlarged male breasts are typically triggered by hormonal imbalances – when our bodies produce more oestrogen than testosterone.
While both female and male hormones occur naturally in our bodies, too much of the former can cause glandular tissue to be enlarged, resulting in unwanted breast development like man boobs. It can be made worse with fat deposits due to weight gain.
Beyond the anxiety that comes from trying to manage a growing build-up of fat in and around the chest, things get a lot more serious when there is tenderness and swelling of the glands in that area.
Gynecomastia can be a "chesty" issue. It can be extremely uncomfortable, painful and confidence-sapping. However, it can be easily solved with surgery. This is where it will be wiser to turn to body sculpting clinics like Amaris B. Clinic, which counts gynecomastia surgery as a signature treatment.
Each gynecomastia case is unique. The surgical approach developed by Dr Ivan Puah considers the grade of the gynecomastia, glandular tissue-to-fat ratio and parenchyma distribution of the patient. He will propose an individualised approach for the patient after carefully assessing the patient's clinical condition and understanding the patient's concerns.
Dr Ivan Puah's ultimate aim is to remove fibrous and painful glandular tissues and/or fat tissues to restore a natural-looking masculine body shape with the smallest possible incision for his patients.
