What is Gynecomastia?

The scientific term gynecomastia is used to describe male breast enlargement. This condition is one that can result in a feminine chest due to the abnormal growth of breast tissue. Many times, gynecomastia is caused by an unknown hormonal issue. This condition can also be caused by certain drugs, steroids, weight gain, or it can be hereditary. Men with this condition typically feel anxious and worried, most commonly in circumstances where the upper body and chest are seen, such as at the beach, pool, or in the gym. Board-certified cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin perform surgical breast reduction for men who suffer from gynecomastia. This surgical procedure tends to have a very high success rate, and it's known as one of the more common cosmetic treatments for men at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Jacksonville, FL.

HOW IS GYNECOMASTIA TREATED?

Gynecomastia surgery is reserved for men with overly large breasts that cannot be reduced with diet and exercise. If you are embarrassed by the size and shape of your chest, you may benefit from gynecomastia surgery. During your initial consultation, treatment options will be presented and may include the chances of undergoing surgery to correct the condition. A form of liposuction is almost always utilized during gynecomastia surgery. While you are under general anesthesia, liposuction removes excess pockets of fat from the internal chest region. Afterward, any lax skin will be excised to create a more tightened appearance, and then the nipple will be surgically reshaped and placed into a proportionate position. For most men, this technique requires an incision close to where the glandular tissue collects. After the pockets of fat and excess skin have been appropriately handled, we will tighten the remaining skin.
