Gynecomastia is a problem facing men all throughout the world. Enlarged male breasts can be embarrassing and detrimental to your ability to be your most effective. Consider a recent article for MMD Newswire titled “An End To Embarrassment And Shame For Middle East Males Thanks To A Simple Surgical Solution Now In The Spotlight.”

According to the author of the article, “In recent months there has been a significant amount of media attention given to what is medically known as ‘gynecomastia’, the development of female-like breasts on men, and what can be done to alleviate this frequently embarrassing and distressing problem. A growing number of men in the Middle East have been turning to Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group clinic in Dubai who provide a proven surgical solution to this not-uncommon condition. The medical condition known as Gynecomastia (or Gynaecomastia) is something that effects a not insignificant percentage of the male population at some time in their lives. In many cases it can be both embarrassing and distressing, particularly in the case of younger males. However, whilst a recognised and proven surgical solution has for long been available, many sufferers have simply been too ashamed to go and seek help. But now, thanks in great part to increasing media exposure which has placed this problem firmly and squarely in the public spotlight around the world, a growing number of men are grasping the nettle and coming forward to seek medical help. And the Middle East is no exception. In recent months the Dubai Healthcare City clinic of Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group, whose Lead Surgeon, Dr Allen Rezai, is a specialist in both male and female breast surgery, has seen an influx of enquiries and patients seeking both information and a medical solution to this problem. Discussing the condition, Dr Rezai explains that ‘Gynecomastia can be an embarrassing condition, but it is surprisingly common. It is not infrequently found in young adolescents, and indeed almost half of all males may experience the condition at some time in their lives. The condition can also appear or re-appear later in life, in middle age and older adulthood. Gynecomastia appearing during puberty regularly disappears of its own accord. When it appears later in life, the problem can often be traced to medications or treatments for prostate cancer.’”

If you are considering male breast reduction, you need a surgeon you can trust. Rex E. Moulton-Barrett, M.D. is internationally known and acknowledged. He is board certified with The American Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and The American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.

Dr. Moulton-Barrett typically performs male breast reductions under general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia wears off, you can expect to feel tired, groggy, or nauseous. You can usually return home the same day as your procedure, but you’ll need someone to drive you. After you return home, plan to spend several days recuperating from surgery before gradually returning to your normal activity level. If there are any stitches, they are usually removed about a week after the procedure, when you return for a follow-up visit to check your recovery progress.
