Men Do Not Always Want To Take Off Their Shirt

Do you know what gynecomastia is? This is the clinical term for the appearance of enlarged breasts, and it affects approximately 50 percent of all the men in the United States at some point in your life. This can lead to embarrassment, especially at times when a man might opt to take off his shirt. Men, correct this aesthetic flaw and restore your self-confidence by undergoing a male breast reduction as performed by the expert Redwood City cosmetic surgeons at GLOW Surgical Arts.

Why should you consider a male breast reduction?

This procedure is the only way to obtain long-lasting results to prevent the return of gynecomastia. While a regimen of diet and exercise to lose weight can reduce the prominence of male breasts, this often can result in the presence of excess glandular tissue, meaning that even lean and fit men may have enlarged breasts.

This procedure also can help alleviate self-consciousness in men who are embarrassed or uncomfortable about showing your chest due to their gynecomastia. When performed by a highly-trained cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Paul Gorman and Dr. Renee Marshall, patients often enjoy immediately noticeable results with minimal scarring.

Male liposuction can remove the excess fat that causes the appearance of enlarged breasts.

Our plastic surgeons at GLOW Surgical Arts can perform a surgical excision of excess breast tissue by making a series of small incisions around the breast and then removing the excess tissue. During the surgery, your Redwood City surgeon may reposition the areolas—especially if they sagged or stretched as a consequence of the enlarged tissue.

More and more men are turning to cosmetic surgery—and liposuction in particular—to address aesthetic flaws. In fact, liposuction was the fastest-growing plastic surgery procedure among American men last year, according to data compiled by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The overall number of male liposuction procedures has doubled in the past decade.

Male liposuction is performed to treat gynecomastia, by removing excess fat and glandular tissue. The end result is a chest that is flatter, firmer and has a more shapely and masculine-looking contour.

Find out if a male breast reduction is right for you.

Candidates for a surgical reduction of enlarged male breasts should be in overall good health. Furthermore, their breast development should have stabilized to avoid the problem recurring again in the future.

Remember that the procedure can be performed on adolescents as well as adults. The development of enlarged male breasts has been found to generate negative psychosocial effects, including anxiety, depression, and overall feelings of embarrassment.
