What Is Male Breast Reduction?
Gynecomastia is a medical condition to causes the male breasts to become enlarged. These enlarged breasts can create the appearance of man boobs which can lead to body image issues in some men. Gynecomastia is commonly the result of hormonal imbalances which is why it can commonly affect males who are going through puberty or older men who are experiencing hormonal changes.
Thankfully, gynecomastia can be addressed through male breast reduction surgery. At North Coast Plastic Surgery, we offer male breast reduction in Sand Diego so that we can help our patients regain their comfort with their appearance.
What is Male Breast Reduction?
Male breast reduction is a body contouring procedure designed to give the male chest a smoother and flatter appearance. Male breast reduction can involve the surgical excision of excess breasts tissue as well as the removal of excess fat in the chest. During your consultation with Dr. Greg Park, he can perform a thorough examination of the chest to determine the appropriate course of action.
The recovery following male breast reduction will vary based on the techniques used. If liposuction alone is performed, swelling and bruising can be expected. If surgical excision is required, the recovery period may be a bit more extensive. Post-operative instructions will be provided.
