Some males begin to notice a excess amount of breast tissue and skin, which may make them feel self-conscious, especially when at the beach or getting intimate with a partner. Male breast reduction, also known as gynecomastia correction surgery, can help men who want to restore their masculine chest contours.
What Causes Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia, or swollen breast tissue in men, can be caused by a larger estrogen flow and decrease in testosterone. This can be caused by natural hormone changes, medications, drugs, alcohol, aging, liver or kidney failure, and more.
How can Gynecomastia be corrected?
In some cases, gynecomastia can go away within two years. In others, enlarged breast tissue can only worsen and cause you to be self-conscious about your body. To correct enlarged male breasts, your board certified plastic surgeon may suggest liposuction in Tampa, excision to remove excess skin and tissues, or a combination of both. Your doctor can place the incisions in the natural contours of your chest to ensure that the scars are hidden as they heal.
Gynecomastia Correction Benefits
Although for many, gynecomastia is associated with improving your aesthetic looks and confidence in your body, it can also assist in removing pain, discomfort, and medical complications. Gynecomastia can take away tenderness as well as reduce the possibility of breast cancer in men. In addition to reducing size and removing excess skin to improve the shape of the chest, this procedure can also reduce the size of the nipple as well, as these tend to growth with gynecomastia. This surgical correction can help you achieve the confidence that you’ve been looking for with more masculine, defined pectorals.
