At the cosmetic surgery practice of Dr. Paul M. Glat, our goal is to help individuals improve their confidence and self-esteem. We realize that both men and women can feel self-conscious about their bodies, and for that reason, we proudly offer male breast reduction at our Bala Cynwyd office. Excessive breast tissue can make a man feel embarrassed or ashamed of his self-image. With male breast reduction surgery, we can subtract excess tissue and refine the shape and appearance of the pectorals so that the patient feels more masculine and confident.* To schedule a consultation regarding male breast reduction in the Philadelphia area, contact our Philadelphia plastic surgery team today.
Male breast reduction surgery is used to treat gynecomastia, a condition in which men have excess breast or glandular tissue. Unlike excess fat, which can often be minimized or lost through diet and exercise, breast tissue is immune to such measures and often will become more conspicuous as a man loses weight. At our Philadelphia-area practice, we utilize various male breast reduction techniques to treat gynecomastia.
To subtract excess breast tissue, we employ a localized liposuction technique. This allows Dr. Glat to safely get rid of breast and glandular tissue in a manner that results in minimal scarring. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, it can often be performed using only localized anesthetic.
Once the breast and glandular tissue has been subtracted with liposuction, we may surgically reconstruct the contour of the chest to meet the patient’s aesthetic goals. Depending on the patient, it may also be necessary to reposition the nipple on the pectoral muscle for a more natural appearance.
If you suffer from gynecomastia and are interested in revitalizing your appearance by minimizing excess tissue, male breast reduction surgery provides the solution you are seeking.* The recovery process is relatively quick and straightforward, allowing you to take up normal activities one to two weeks following surgery.
There are numerous benefits to male breast reduction surgery, but many of our patients find the aspect they enjoy most is their new self-image. The results of male breast reduction surgery can be dramatic for an individual who has suffered with gynecomastia his whole life, and often an individual can be overcome with an intense feeling of satisfaction and relief. Many men suffer embarrassment, humiliation, and insecurity as a result of gynecomastia, but with male breast reduction surgery, these issues no longer pose a problem.
Ideally, male breast reduction candidates are healthy individuals – both mentally and physically. As male breast reduction surgery is an invasive procedure, it is important that candidates have realistic expectations for both the surgical procedure and the recovery process, as undergoing surgery can be a more trying experience for some than others. Candidates should also be of average weight, as we recommend individuals undertake diet and exercise regimens before deciding upon surgery; this ensures that the problem can’t be treated through other means.
