Estimates indicate as many as 40% of men suffer from enlarged breasts or gynecomastia. This condition sometimes may result from the use of certain drugs or from serious health issues such as cancer or impaired liver function. It may be a genetic characteristic, but the cause in many cases is unknown. Men who suffer from this condition may experience embarrassment and low self-esteem. Our team can help you decide if you are a good candidate for male breast reduction and what treatment option is the best for your condition.
What Does Male Breast Reduction Involve?
Male breast reduction may be accomplished by liposuction, by surgically removing excess glandular tissue, or by a combination of these two techniques. Typically, this treatment is performed on an outpatient basis. In many cases, liposuction is all that is needed to remove excess fatty tissue. However, it all depends on the unique case, as each surgery is slightly different.
What to Expect Regarding Results
The results of treatment are designed to be permanent. Patients generally experience a significant boost in self-confidence with the firmer, flatter, more contoured chest that is the result of male breast reduction.
Who is a Good Candidate for Male Breast Reduction?
It is important that the potential patient is bothered by the condition and motivated to follow the plastic surgeon’s guidelines for a successful outcome. For some people, this may mean some lifestyle adjustments both before and after the surgery, including quitting smoking and avoiding weight gain.
Strenuous physical activity will be limited for a set amount of time after the surgery. The doctor and staff will provide detailed information on post-surgery activity. If you are the right candidate for this procedure, you will be motivated to follow the directions. Once you do, in just weeks, you will look and feel your best. The enhanced confidence you experience will make you wish you’d known about this simple, effective solution sooner.
