What is Male Breast Reduction?
Male breast reduction is a procedure done to help remove excess fatty tissues from males’ breasts that enlarged due to Gynecomastia. Many men suffer from gynecomastia, a very common condition that may make men feel uncomfortable or self-conscious about their chest appearance. More commonly known as “man boobs,” gynecomastia can be caused by certain medications especially anabolic steroids, marijuana use, hormonal changes, heredity, and weight gain. If you believe gynecomastia is causing you emotional discomfort or impeding your self-confidence, Male Breast Reduction in Boca Raton, Florida may be right for you.
Who is a Candidate?
Ideal candidates for male breast reduction are males who have excess fatty deposits, often painful breast tissue, and skin similarities to women’s breast shape. Dr. Berman’s goal is to correct this condition and restore a masculine chest contour.
Younger patients may benefit from surgery, but it is recommended that breast development has stabilized before male breast reduction or gynecomastia surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Berman will answer any questions you have and explain how the surgery is performed and what to expect. Please be sure to ask him anything about gynecomastia correction surgery that you may not understand. For more information, visit our gallery or the testimonials page.
How is Male Breast Reduction Performed?
Performed by Dr. Berman, male breast reduction, or gynecomastia correction surgery, reduces the breast size, enhancing and contouring the male chest. Depending on your specific gynecomastia condition, surgical techniques will vary. Some male breast reduction methods include liposuction, excision technique, or a combination of both.
Recovery and Results
Following gynecomastia surgery, patients can expect to be bandaged and need to wear a compression garment to help reduce swelling and support your new chest contour. During the first three days of recovery, patients should be sure to rest at home and avoid vigorous shoulder movements to ensure optimal results.
Recovery time after your procedure will depend on how severe the condition is and what techniques were used to treat the gynecomastia. The average patient will usually be able to return to work after about a week. Be sure to follow the post-op instructions Dr. Berman provides for a smooth recovery experience.
