When fat and/or a surplus of breast tissue build up in the male chest, the effects can lead to the appearance of enlarged breasts. This common condition, known as gynecomastia, can be both physically uncomfortable as well as a source of embarrassment and self-consciousness. Many teenage boys and men with gynecomastia feel uncomfortable wearing form-fitting clothing or removing their shirts during sports games, at the beach, or in other public situations.
If you believe your chest looks “swollen” or you have enlarged breasts that are unresponsive to diet and exercise, you may have gynecomastia. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who offers male breast reduction procedures can provide a proper diagnosis and help you determine your options for achieving your goals.
Though it is difficult to determine the exact cause of gynecomastia, the condition can often be effectively treated with male breast reduction surgery available from Dr. Semira Bayati. Depending upon the nature of your case, Dr. Bayati can use advanced techniques such as liposuction to remove excess fat. Patients with an excess of skin and/or glandular tissue may benefit from surgical removal of the tissue in order to achieve a flatter, firmer appearance in the pectoral areas of the chest. Ultimately, male breast reduction procedures will be custom-tailored to your unique needs in order to obtain the best possible results.
