Overly developed breast in men (gynecomastia) is a medical condition that can affect males of all ages. Gynecomastia can cause embarrassment and self-consciousness, and often men who have this condition have been teased since childhood for having a feminine-looking chest. Male breast reduction procedure can be a life changing experience for them. Dr. George Pope of Pope Plastic Surgery has performed several gynecomastia surgeries giving delightful results to his male patients. He is a well known plastic and revisionist surgeon. Certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, he has an experience of over 20 years in the field.
Gynecomastia takes place either due to hormonal activity and tissue responses or caused by obesity. Gynecomastia can be corrected in most cases with outpatient surgery under a light general anesthesia. In this process of gynecomastia correction, a combination of liposuction and minor surgery is performed to remove the excessive breast tissue. Under a general anesthetic power liposuction is first used to remove as much of the fatty or excessive breast tissue as possible. Then depending on whether extra skin has to be removed or not, an incision is made to allow direct excision of the remainder of the extra tissue that is impossible to be removed by liposuction. The incision is made just in the lower half of the areola.
Such as procedure is done for men who feel self conscious about their appearance. Breast reduction surgery can really help them up. This procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts. And the final results are a flatter, firmer and better contoured chest. With improved appearance, male regains his masculinity and lost confidence again.
