Gynecomastia, or enlarged breast tissue in men, can be caused by several factors ranging from genetic conditions to the use of certain drugs. Regardless of the condition’s cause, men dealing with gynecomastia frequently suffer from reduced self-esteem and wish for flattened, masculine chest contours. Male breast reduction, also known as gynecomastia surgery, is a procedure designed to decrease the size of the breasts and create a more masculine-appearing chest. Gynecomastia is more common than you might think, and male breast reduction has many benefits for the patients who choose this procedure.
Improved Male Chest Contours
In addition to reducing the size of the breasts, a male
breast reduction can improve the contours of your chest overall. As a well-regarded
gynecomastia surgeon, Dr. Azouz understands that in addition to removing excess
tissue, the chest contours can be reshaped for a better result. This gives you
a natural-looking, enhanced masculine appearance.
Reduced Breast Size for Overdeveloped Breasts
In men, the breasts can become overdeveloped for a variety of reasons. This includes a hormonal imbalance, which can be genetic or taking certain medications. When these are the cause of your gynecomastia, no amount of dieting or weight loss is likely to improve the appearance of your chest. Male breast reduction is the best way to permanently reduce the size of the breasts.
Reduced Excess Fat in Male Breasts
In some cases, the appearance of male breasts may be due simply to stubborn excess fat. This appearance can persist even if you are keeping up with a healthy lifestyle. Male breast reduction can help to reduce this excess fat, giving you the masculine appearance you’re looking for.
Reduced Excess Glandular Tissue in Male Breasts
Liposuction alone is often not enough to address gynecomastia, as excess glandular tissue may also be to blame for the enlarged breasts. In these cases, Dr. Azouz can carefully and effectively reduce this excess tissue using advanced surgical techniques.
Improved Confidence and Self Esteem
For male breast reduction patients, improved self-esteem is one of the major benefits of the surgery. Gynecomastia is typically not a health concern, but the condition can be a source of embarrassment and self-consciousness for many. Male breast reduction can help restore self-confidence.
