Male Breast Reduction – Solve an Embarrassing Condition: Gynecomastia

There is help for Gynecomastia – A Male Breast Reduction

Many men will develop breast tissue that disappears as they age, but in certain men it may persist and is called gynecomastia.  In most cases this is a normal process but in some cases it can be related to the use of certain medications.  It can be a source of insecurity and embarrassment for men of all ages.

Some men may be reluctant to seek treatment for this condition, but in recent years men have become one of the fastest growing populations seeking cosmetic surgery, so the frequency of this and other male contouring procedures such as liposuction continues to rise.

What can a certified plastic surgeon do to help my gynecomastia?

Male Breast Reduction surgery is one way to treat gynecomastia by giving the male chest a more masculine appearance. If a man you know is avoiding circumstances that would require them to take off their shirt or wearing multiple layers of clothing to try to disguise their enlarged breast tissue, there is help and it may be time to solve this embarrassing condition.

How is this procedure performed?

Male breast reduction surgery is usually done in the operating room under general anesthesia and involves removing the glandular tissue. Liposuction may be needed in addition to give the contour that is desired.  This surgery is commonly performed in conjunction with liposuction of the flanks or stomach to give an overall improvement in the upper body shape and form.  All this in only a few hours of surgery and recovery time before leaving the Reno surgery center.

What are the expected results?

Expect a slimmer, tighter, and more contoured chest and upper body. So stop waiting and suffering the embarrassment and avoidance of social situations – schedule your consultation with Dr. Janiga today.
