Gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction surgery, is a plastic surgery procedure that reduces the size of enlarged male chest tissue. This condition can be emotionally distressing for men and may have a significant impact on their self-esteem and confidence. Here are some of the ways Dr. Brown helps his male patients through gynecomastia surgery:
Improved Self-Esteem: Gynecomastia surgery can significantly boost a guy’s self-esteem and body image by removing excess tissue on the chest that gives it a rounded or breast-like appearance. This improved self-confidence can have a positive impact on various aspects of life, including social interactions and intimacy.
Enhanced Physical Appearance: This surgery can remove excess breast tissue, fat, and skin, resulting in a flatter and more masculine chest contour. This can help men feel more comfortable and confident in their appearance, especially when wearing tight-fitting t-shirts or going shirtless.
Emotional Wellbeing: Many men with gynecomastia experience emotional distress and embarrassment due to their chest appearance. Gynecomastia surgery can alleviate these feelings, leading to improved emotional well-being and a better overall quality of life.
Increased Clothing Options: After gynecomastia surgery, many of our patients are happy to find that they feel comfortable in more outfits, and they may even be able to wear old favorite t-shirts they’ve buried deep in their closet.
Long-Lasting Results: As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle after surgery, you can enjoy an improved, defined chest for many years to come after surgery. Once the excess breast tissue and fat are removed, they are unlikely to return.
Correction of Asymmetry: Gynecomastia surgery can address cases where only the left or right side of the chest has a breast-like appearance. Most often, this occurs during puberty and can often be even more distressing than when both sides of the chest are affected.
Relief from Physical Discomfort: Some guys with gynecomastia experience physical discomfort, such as pain or tenderness in the chest area. Surgery can alleviate these discomforts.
Improved Posture: Enlarged chest tissue can lead to poor posture if a guy slumps to try to hide his chest. After surgery, you can stand up straight and feel confident about your look.
Minimal Scarring: In almost all cases, gynecomastia surgery only requires small incisions, so noticeable scarring after the procedure is very unlikely.
