Gynecomastia is a condition in which men develop excess breast tissue to perform enlarged breasts. It is a struggle for many. If you are living with gynecomastia, you know what challenges you face on a daily basis. It means buying shirts that are too big or wearing layers of clothing in an effort to hide your large breasts. It may cause you to avoid social gatherings, the gym, and the locker room. You may be so self-conscious about your body that it has a negative impact on your relationship with your partner. Intimate moments may make you extremely uncomfortable because you are so unhappy with your body. You are not alone in your struggle. Fortunately, treatment is available for gynecomastia.
What is the Most Common Treatment for Gynecomastia? Gynecomastia is typically treated with plastic surgery. A member of our team will make incisions in your breast in order to remove excess tissue that has made your breasts larger than they should be. If fat is a part of the problem, it can also be removed through a liposuction procedure. In some cases, liposuction may be on only thing that is necessary to help you to have a flat chest. You can reclaim a male physique and feel better about yourself.
What is the First Step in Treating Gynecomastia? If you are ready to take action about your enlarged breasts, you need to talk to a member of our team. Find out what has caused your gynecomastia. If it is due to a problem with your hormones, you may benefit from a prescription that can restore balance in your system. It may reduce the size of your breasts enough that you do not need to take any additional action. This may not be an option if you are taking hormone medication for another health condition. If your breasts do not go back down to a size that makes you happy, plastic surgery is your best alternative.
You should set up your initial visit for an evaluation. A member of our team will look at your breasts and determine what will be best to ensure your chest is in the proper proportion with the rest of your body. They will talk to you about your medical history to determine if surgery will pose a risk for you. If there are no barriers to plastic surgery, you can discuss the procedure.
What to Expect from Gynecomastia Surgery You will need to be patient with yourself. Give your body the chance to heal. After some time, you will love to see your new body and your new flat chest.
