5 Unknown Facts About Gynecomastia

From adolescence to adulthood, men suffering from gynecomastia often think that the condition is rare, or perhaps, that they are among the unlucky few. However, some degree of gynecomastia presents in more than half the male population at one point or another during an individual’s lifespan. What’s more, is the condition even affects as many as 70 percents of boys during puberty (when certain hormonal changes occur). To give a frame of reference, there are millions of men in the U.S. who are affected by gynecomastia.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is defined as an excess of the male glandular breast tissue. The word is itself, gyneco meaning “woman-like” and mastia meaning “breast” is literally where the term comes from. To the layman, the condition is commonly referred to as “man boobs.” Gynecomastia itself though is caused by high levels of estrogen in a man which are disproportionate to the amount of testosterone in their body, resulting in the swelling or enlargement of tissue in the breast. Its development most often starts as a small lump under one or both of a man’s nipples which, in some cases, will feel tender to the touch.

What’s “The Look” Male Models Love?

Looks matter, period. If you want a job, your chances of getting accepted for the position will be boosted by a good visage and a toned body. No industry knows the power of looks better than the fashion industry, and that’s why it’s one of the most visually competitive job markets in the world.

Male models can’t just look good; they have to have “the look” that agencies desire. When people talk about “the look,” they’re talking about a very specific set of traits that turn an average man into a male model. These include:

You Don’t Have To Live With Gynecomastia Anymore

Gynecomastia is one of those issues that most men dread, but not because it could be potentially lethal. It’s the scientific term for the presence of excess breast tissue in men, or, if you want to be more casual about it, “man boobs.”  For most men, it’s a problem that can quickly result in serious embarrassment, dating problems, and even struggles in finding clothing that suits them.

Around half of all men will eventually experience gynecomastia in their lives. It’s so common, many people in the past thought of it as an inevitability. You can’t really prevent it, either, since it can happen for a variety of reasons including age, weight gain, hormone fluctuations, and substance use. Even if your father didn’t have man boobs, you might. It’s very spontaneous in that sense.

So Your Plastic Surgery Was Botched. Now What?

It can happen to men of any walk of life. You’re a man who wasn’t satisfied with some aspect of your body that diet and exercise couldn’t help out. You knew you needed to have a plastic surgeon help you out, so that you can have the body and face you’ve always wanted.

You researched your doctors heavily, and you chose a surgeon who you felt would be a bargain. The consultation went well, and he seemed to adequately answer all your questions fairly succinctly. He wasn’t some random person; he was certified and rightly earned his medical degree.

You always assumed that people who get bad plastic surgery haven’t properly vetted the doctors who would be performing their procedure. It could never happen to you, right?  You trusted him so deeply, and you just knew that you could find a better self in his hands…until you woke up to a botched procedure.

Can You Be Too Old For Plastic Surgery?

When men age, many different things happen. They will grow wrinkles, gain weight, get jowls, and also lose their hair. Some might get gynecomastia, while others may find themselves dealing with liver spots. Regardless of how aging presents itself, most men begin to yearn for the younger bodies they once had as they march on in years. It’s only natural; a youthful body is an enviable one.

Technology has progressed to the point that most of us have considered getting plastic surgery at least once or twice. Many men, missing their younger bodies, have started to turn to plastic surgery to regain a youthful appearance and feel like they are themselves once more. On average, people are around 35 to 50 years of age when the first start to travel their cosmetic surgery journey.

At our office, we hear a very common question posed to Dr. Steinbrech and his staff members. This question, of course, is whether one can be too old for plastic surgery. Truth be told, it’s not that easy to say yes or no.

Male plastic surgery is often considered to be somewhat taboo in nature. Men aren’t “supposed” to have plastic surgery, but the truth is, gender has nothing to do with it. Men, just like women, desire to have the ideal bodies they want, and have every right to want to pursue it. Asking for a surgeon’s help isn’t wrong; it’s realistic!

It’s no secret that plastic surgery rates among men have been skyrocketing. But, did you know these fascinating facts about the plastic surgery’s fastest-growing sector?

Surgery After Gastric Bypass for Men

Gastric bypass surgery is one of the most life-changing procedures that a man can have. This surgery allows men to lose drastic amounts of weight when regular dieting and exercise isn’t feasible. Men who have had this surgery have seen drastic changes to their lifestyle, their dating lives, as well as their bodies.

Men who have gastric bypass surgery can easily lose 40, 50, 60, or over 150 pounds. In some cases, patients may even see losses as high as 200 pounds or more. With great weight loss comes a lot of unexpected side effects. With many men, the weight loss they experience may improve mobility and clothes shopping, but it won’t be quite what they expected.

You see, after having gastric bypass, a common side effect that you may see in men is excess skin and uneven weight loss. So, while they may be thinner, they may not feel handsome. They may feel somewhat embarrassed by the excess skin—possibly even to the point that they may not want to deal with dating.

What Is Morphing?

The world of plastic surgery, new terms seem to be invented every single day. One day, the big buzzword is Botox. The next, it’s all about BodyBanking. Then, it’s liposculpting. Sometimes, it’s something as simple as the newest term for a specific type of client, or a new rumor about being able to “fly in” celebrity customers. With all the crazy terms being dropped day after day, it’s not surprising that it can be hard to keep up with the lingo—even when you’re a professional in the field.

One of the newest terms to be thrown around in consultation rooms is “morphing,” and it’s gained a pretty good reputation among both surgeons and clients alike. Are you curious about what morphing is? Here’s what every potential client needs to know…

What’s morphing?

Have you ever sat down at a cosmetic surgeon’s office, heard a doctor explain a procedure’s expected results, and then wondered whether what you imagined would be what you got? Or rather, have you heard of someone who was told about plastic surgery results in vague terms, only to realize that what they asked for and what they received were two different things? Most people have, and that’s precisely why morphing was invented.

Morphing is the use of image-altering software to better illustrate concepts and potential results that a patient could have if they choose to undergo a procedure. It’s an easy way to take the guesswork out of results, and a better way to open a dialogue about plastic surgery with your doctor.

Hear Dr. Steinbrech talk about it in Business Insider!

Believe it or not, Dr. Steinbrech has become a huge fan of morphing when dealing with male plastic surgery. He has even gone so far as to offer his input to major magazines about the new procedure, how it affects his consultations, and why he loves using this technology when talking to clients.
