Regain Your Self-Confidence With Gynecomastia Correction
Almost 60% of men will experience some form of gynecomastia, a condition that causes enlarged, female-like breasts, in their life. While this condition is common, men struggling with gynecomastia often find regular activities like swimming, sports, and changing in the gym locker room unthinkable. Men with gynecomastia commonly report having poor body image and a negative impact on their social life and it can have a devastating emotional impact when it does not resolve itself. For men that have thoroughly investigated the cause of their condition and have not been able to find a resolution, surgical treatment may be the right option. Surgical gynecomastia treatment corrects enlarged breasts in men for a tighter, more masculine chest.
Gynecomastia is the result of hormone imbalance which can have a variety of causes, including regular growing, genetics, obesity, taking steroids, various medications, and aging. In severe cases, the large breasts caused by gynecomastia are composed of firm glandular tissue. Unlike fat, this tissue is not responsive to diet and exercise, making it virtually impossible to improve without a male breast reduction. Similar physical symptoms can have different causes, so it is important to make sure that you have an accurate diagnosis from a medical doctor before pursuing treatment, surgical or non-surgical. As an experienced surgeon, Dr. Lohner will want to work with you to pinpoint the cause of the condition and ensure that it is not something that will resolve itself before moving forward with surgical treatment.
The type of gynecomastia correction procedure used depends on the extent of the correction needed. However, most patients require a combination of liposuction to remove excess fat and surgical excision to remove excess glandular tissue and skin. This combination provides a complete correction, resulting in a tight, sculpted chest. After this outpatient procedure, most patients can return to work in a week or less.
