Have you started to notice an excess of unwanted body fat on your chest? Does it feel like you have tried dieting, exercising, and everything in between to reduce the unwanted body fat, but nothing has been effective? While many men carry unwanted weight on their chest, there are treatment options available. Male breast reduction is a surgical procedure to target and reduce localized body fat on the chest. Learn more about the treatment process during a consultation with our team at DrYoungForever in San Antonio, TX.
What Is Male Breast Reduction?
Male breast reduction is a surgical procedure to address the fatty tissue on the body above the pectoral muscles. The surgical procedure typically involves liposuction of the breast area as well as a surgical reduction of excess skin in the area.
Many men begin to experience enlarged breasts for a variety of reasons. While it may be a side effect of general weight gain, it may also be a result of gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is a hormonal condition many men experience that causes the body to produce elevated levels of estrogen and not enough testosterone. Male breast reduction is often also referred to as gynecomastia surgery.
What Could I Expect from a Procedure?
Each male breast reduction procedure will slightly vary for each candidate. During the procedure, liposuction is performed to remove stubborn fat from the chest area. Depending on how much fat is removed, surgical reduction of the excess skin may also be recommended and performed.
Following the procedure, it is important to allow yourself time to heal and recover. There may be some downtime associated with the male breast reduction surgery, and our team in Texas can help you best understand how to prepare for and recover from this surgical procedure.
Results achieved with male breast reduction surgery will vary for each person. However, most begin to enjoy their results after their body has healed. Results are intended to be permanent, but it is important to continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle and manage any medical condition potentially related to weight gain.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most generally healthy men who are frustrated with excess fatty tissues on their chest may be able to benefit from male breast reduction. However, it is important to keep in mind that surgery alone may not provide a solution if the weight gain is caused by a medical condition. The condition itself must also be treated.
A consultation with our team in San Antonio can help determine if this surgical procedure is a good fit for you and your lifestyle. They can also help you develop your unique treatment plan.
