Enlarged male breasts can be an embarrassing condition. Males may experience this during the hormonal surges of their teens, but the breast tissue usually shrinks on its own without treatment or surgery. In adult men, gynecomastia can occur for a variety of reasons and usually will not subside without treatment. Eden Plastic Surgery Institute offers male gynecomastia surgery to create a more masculine chest at our medical facility in Miami.
What Causes Gynecomastia?
Hormone fluctuations, steroids, genetics, drug/alcohol use, weight gain and other factors can contribute to gynecomastia. Males in their teens and those over 50 are the most common to suffer from this condition, but it can occur at any age. Men with gynecomastia may feel very self-conscious of their chest, especially if they need to remove their shirt. Treatment or surgery can help men with gynecomastia feel more confident in their appearance, restoring a flatter, firmer male chest.
Male Breast Reduction
Men with mild gynecomastia may be able to reduce the extra fatty tissue through weight loss, exercise and other lifestyle changes. For more substantial male breasts, surgical reduction may be the best solution. Male gynecomastia surgery is similar to female breast reduction surgery. A small, discreet incision is used to access the breast tissue and remove it surgically. Liposuction may also be used to remove fat cells in some cases. While there is swelling and fluid after surgery, this will drain and flatten as the surgical site heals, revealing a more masculine chest.
Gynecomastia can impact a man’s appearance and self-confidence.
