What causes gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition that can occur to any adult male at any time. The condition can present itself at any age, and may be caused by genetics, medications, or excess weight gain. Even after weight loss, some men who have gynecomastia resulting from excess fat may notice excess skin and sagging that can be addressed with the help of a cosmetic plastic surgeon. One common way to address gynecomastia is with male breast reduction surgery.
What is male breast reduction?
The most effective treatment for gynecomastia is a male breast reduction procedure. This is a cosmetic surgery performed for aesthetic purposes to remove excess glandular tissue and fat that may be present in the chest area. Through removal, men can achieve a more masculine appearance to the chest area with firmer, flatter pecs. Men who are embarrassed about going shirtless at the pool or while completing yardwork due to their gynecomastia may want to speak to a plastic surgeon about treatment with male breast reduction.
What can I expect from male breast reduction?
Male breast reduction may include liposuction, the removal of excess skin tissue, or a combination of both to achieve the desired results. Patients should educate themselves on what to expect from the procedure, and take necessary time off of work, school, and other social activities to properly heal. During the initial consultation, Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee will educate patients on what to expect before, during, and after their surgery.
