Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)
Surgery Gynecomastia is a condition that causes a man to have abnormally large breasts. Dr. Kenna or Dr. Buckius can help treat this condition and restore the proper contours of your body. There are three ages at which this condition is present: during the neonatal period, around the time of puberty, and during adulthood.
Gynecomastia tends to be present when there is a relative excess of estrogen compared to testosterone. This is common in the neonatal period when there are still circulating estrogens and the condition usually resolves itself. The condition is again common around the time of puberty, when the hormonal levels are fluctuating and also usually resolves itself as the hormones stabilize. There are several reasons for the adult male to have or develop Gynecomastia.
One of the reasons involves a genetic predisposition in which this body feature may simply run in the family. A genetic predisposition, with or without a little excess body fat, will lead to this condition, for example. There are also number of medications and hormonal disorders that can cause Gynecomastia. Fortunately, these hormonal disorders are quite rare.
Anabolic steroids can also cause Gynecomastia and need to be discussed separately. Anabolic steroids are often taken by body builders in order to build muscle mass. Unfortunately, one of the side effects is hypertrophy or abnormal buildup of breast tissue. Most body builders have very
little body fat; therefore, the breast tissue that builds up is extremely firm and hard and presents a difficult surgical problem to remove. In some cases a small incision is required around the areola in order to remove the firm breast tissue. Dr. Kenna or Dr. Buckius can discuss the best treatment option for you.
Liposuction is currently the number one cosmetic surgery chosen by men. The ideal male body shape is considered to be trim and athletic-looking, with broad shoulders and chest, a flat abdomen, and a narrow hip and thigh area. However, as men age, areas of fat tend to accumulate around the abdomen, waist, lower back, chest (a condition called Gynecomastia), and along the chin and neck.
Many men seek liposuction to sculpt these areas back to a more youthful look and appearance. Liposuction works by reshaping the body by removing fat that lies between the skin and muscles. The goal isn’t to remove every bit of fat but to sculpt the body in to a better physique.
Most Liposuction procedures are performed in a Surgical Facility. However, some liposuction contouring may be performed in the office. If you would like more information about Liposuction, please contact our office to schedule a consultation.
A facelift, eyelid surgery, and our numerous facial surgeries can reverse the signs of aging, giving you a youthful and more energetic appearance. Dr. Kenna and Dr. Buckius perform a wide array of facial rejuvenation procedures to improve your appearance.
