Understand the treatment of fat accumulation in the chest of men
Both gynecomastia and pseudoginecomastia are characterized by increased breast volume in men. The difference is that in classic gynecomastia the increase is due to excessive volume of breast tissue, whereas in pseudogynecomastia there is an increase in fat tissue.
An easy way to tell the difference is to feel the tissue behind the areola. If it is hard and with a "mass" density, it is probably gynecomastia. If it is soft and diffuse, it is likely to be a pseudoginecomastia.
The cause of pseudoginecomastia is the accumulation of pure and simple fat, whereas gynaecomastia is caused by a hormonal change, but often the reason. It is unclear why some men accumulate fat in the breasts, but pseudogynecomastia can occur in overweight men who are not necessarily obese.
What are the treatment options for pseudogynecomastia?
There are physical exercises that may attenuate the pseudoginecomastia: but attention, the goal is to try to decrease the fat part and not gain muscle mass that can worsen the appearance of the breast. Nutritionist-led diets are also important in the treatment of pseudogynecomastia.
If it still does not improve, breast liposuction can help (as long as there is no skin left over).
- Local liposculpture: in cases where the breast is resulting only from greasy accumulation. Ideal for mild gynecomastia
- Local liposculpture and scarring in the lower areola: performed in patients with moderate fat volume and breast tissue (without excess skin)
- Local liposculpture, scar in the mammary and areola groove: in situations where there is a large volume breast with excess skin, commonly observed in post-large weight loss patients. If necessary, the size of the areola may be decreased. The size and arrangement of the scar may vary depending on the amount of skin to be removed. In general, the scar is of acceptable quality given the benefit of the new contour of the male thorax.
However, remembering that if a person's weight gain occurs, or if they have a high-fat diet, the problem may return.
Hair loss in men and women is an increasingly common complaint as the number of people most concerned with the appearance of both sexes is increasing. A number of studies and studies have been conducted to assess how significant this interference is in people's lives. A research presented at the 2010 American Academy of Dermatology Meeting in the United States showed that for women, for example, hair loss causes a degree of suffering as intense as the loss of a loved one.
