Traditionally cosmetic surgery is considered a female only practice, we naturally think of things like tummy tucks, breast enhancements and face-lifts.  However, it is important to remember that men can actually suffer from body issues and for many, the best way to feel more confident is to take action and have specific areas worked on. 

Mr Irfan Khan has vast experience with patients of both genders and fully understands how distressing it can be to live day after day with an area of the body that destroys confidence and makes the patient feel miserable.

What is Gynaecomastia?

Gynaecomastia is a medical term that refers to a breast tissue reduction surgery in men. If you are looking for a Plastic Surgeon in Manchester to carry out this kind of procedure, then Mr Irfan Khan would be delighted to speak to you and discuss this further at a consultation. 

For many men enlarge breasts can create some serious depression issues.  It can be caused by weight gain, weight loss or simply genetics but the effects can be quite devastatingSometimes they can be embarrassed to take their top off to go for something like a swim, which curtails the activities they can carry out and leads to feelings of insecurity and embarrassment. 

For some men, the issue may have occurred following medication for an illness, which is really unhelpful.  Just as they begin to recover and feel better, they are faced with this new issue that destroys confidence.

How Does Cosmetic Surgery Work For Men?

When a man attends the clinic for a breast reduction procedure, it is likely to be a cosmetic surgical case.  While under general anaesthetic Mr Irfan Khan will remove excess skin, fat and tissue to create the look that will have been discussed in the consultation and pre-surgery work. 

The cosmetic surgery procedure is different for everyone, but the aim is to leave the man with a chest area he can feel happy with that does not cause emotional distress. If there is a lot of fatty tissue to remove there may be an element of liposuction involved but the bottom line is we will work with you to understand what you hope to achieve and make this a reality. 

The procedure can generally be done as a day case, but once discharged you will need to follow the aftercare instructions to the letter. You will not be able to work so should ensure you have booked at least a week away depending on the nature of your work.  Pressure bandages will be given and need to be worn as requested.

For the first week, you should aim to do very little in the way of lifting and certainly not undertake exercise. You need to allow your body to recover and this can take a while.  Avoid strenuous activity for three weeks, but you should find a normal life can resume after six weeks.  Many men will agree that this is a small time frame to bear given the results they can achieve.
