(Male Breast Reduction)
Fact: 40-60% of men are affected by women-like breasts, or “gynecomastia,” which is the medical term for this condition that originates from Greek. Although it’s rarely talked about, it’s actually quite common among men. Gynecomastia may affect only one breast or both. Though certain drugs and medical problems have been linked with male breast overdevelopment, there is no known cause in the vast majority of cases. But, there is a solution.
For men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, breast-reduction surgery can help. The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured. Surgery to correct gynecomastia can be performed on healthy, emotionally stable men of any age. The best candidates for surgery have firm, elastic skin that will reshape to the body’s new contours. The typical procedure involves a combination of liposuction as well as excision (cutting through a small incision hidden in the areola).
Gynecomastia surgery can enhance your appearance and self-confidence. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them frankly with Dr. DiBello. The results of the procedure are significant and permanent. If your expectations are realistic, chances are very good that you’ll be quite satisfied with your new look.
