Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Our team of board-certified plastic surgeons provides you a personalized environment so that you can feel comfortable to explain your desired goals and expectations during the initial consultation of the gynecomastia surgery, also called as male breast reduction surgery. The surgeon checks and evaluates your existing anatomy that helps in determining the cause of your enlarged breasts. Male breast enlargement may be caused by excess fatty tissue or glandular tissue disorder or both.
If the gynecomastia is caused by excess fatty tissue then the appropriate gynecomastia treatment option which surgeon recommends is liposuction procedure that reduces the excess fat. During the liposuction surgery, the localized fatty deposits are removed from the body. As a result, the enlarged breasts sculpted into perfect contours.
Traditional Surgical Excision Procedure
If the gynecomastia is caused by a glandular tissue disorder, traditional surgical excision is recommended because liposuction alone is not a proper option to fulfill the desired results. Depending on the individual patient’s conditions, the surgeon may perform traditional excision procedure alone or in combination with the liposuction. During the traditional surgical excision procedure, the surgeon makes incisions on the edge of the areola (darker colored circular area surrounding the nipple) or in the area of underarm. After that, the surgeon surgically cuts away excess glandular tissue, fatty deposits, and skin from the breasts.
After the recovery from gynecomastia surgery or breast reduction surgery, you can live with a perfectly contoured shape that enhances your self-confidence.
