Gynecomastia reduction

Remove excess breast tissue

Every man deserves to be comfortable when taking off his shirt on the beach or during an intense basketball game with friends. For some men, however, going shirtless can be a serious fear because of their appearance.

Many men throughout the world are diagnosed with gynecomastia, which is a technical term for enlarged male breasts. Because of societal norms and perceived standards of masculinity, gynecomastia can make men feel unworthy, unconfident, and depressed.

Plastic surgeons at Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center in Gainesville offer quality cosmetic procedures, including gynecomastia surgery for men.

What is gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia causes swelling in men’s chest areas, making it appear as if they have enlarged, feminine breasts. This condition can affect one breast or both breasts. While scientists have not determined how or why gynecomastia happens, studies show that the use of steroids, hormonal changes (especially during puberty), heredity, diabetes, certain medications, alcohol, and marijuana may contribute to enlarged male breast tissue.

Male breast reduction procedures

Gynecomastia reduction procedures take approximately 1.5–2 hours. Depending on the severity of gynecomastia, small incisions are made either around the nipple or underneath the nipple.

For less severe cases of gynecomastia, cosmetic surgeons may simply cut out extra glandular tissue around the breast and reshape it. For larger breasts, liposuction produces the greatest result. Removing the fat from enlarged breasts through high-tech machinery gives the chest area a slimmer, more toned appearance. This tightens the chest area making the soft breast disappear almost completely.

Side effects of
gynecomastia reduction:

Common side effects following surgery may include:
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Nipples may lose blood supply and develop permanent, intense scarring
  • Infection
  • Sensitivity in the nipple area
  • Poor healing process for the skin and breast area

After surgery, it is common to experience slight pain, swelling, and bruising in the chest area. In most cases, you can return to work and regular activities one to two weeks after surgery. You may be instructed to wear a post-surgery garment for several weeks after surgery.
For the best results, patients should avoid smoking after surgery. Patients should also maintain their weight. Substantial weight gain may reverse the work performed and contribute to awkward-looking or downward sloping breasts.

Having confidence in your appearance

As a man, you deserve to feel confident about your body. Social stigmas make it difficult for men with gynecomastia to feel masculine and strong. They may even experience teasing and laughter from those around them.

Adolescent and teenage boys, for example, may be bullied during puberty. Not only does this result in embarrassment and low-self esteem, but it can transform into larger concerns such as depression, loss of self-worth, and thoughts of suicide. Do not allow an enlarged breast tissue area to ruin your life.

You can count on Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center to help you gain confidence and masculinity in your chest area.
