Gynecomastia Reduction Plastic Surgery in the Charlotte Area
If you are a man with enlarged breasts, then you have probably endured embarrassment from this rarely-discussed condition. The cause of excess breast tissue is not always known, but may result from a hormonal imbalance, obesity or the use of certain prescription medications. Known as gynecomastia, enlarged breasts in men can be corrected through plastic surgery. The intended result is a more masculine chest contour through reduction of breast tissue.
During male breast reduction surgery, the underlying fat and glandular tissue is removed as well as the skin itself, if needed. The amount of extra breast tissue and skin will determine the procedure that is used. Liposuction is usually involved, and allows for the removal of more fatty tissue. For the thicker and more fibrous tissue, surgical excision may be needed. Incisions may be placed along the areola and tend to camouflage nicely with the remainder of the chest.
Because liposuction is usually an integral part of this procedure, you will be placed in a compression type garment that will encourage your skin to retract evenly and uniformly. You will notice a dramatic result within the first month.
