Hormonal imbalance can affect anyone and result in both mental and physical changes. Gynecomastia, or “man boobs,” is a common issue that men struggle with when their testosterone levels drop. This issue can be addressed with surgical intervention. Dr. Aronowitz offers breast reduction surgery for both women and men, restoring the look of your chest and improving your confidence. Schedule a consultation at our Los Angeles office today to learn more about the procedure and discuss your eligibility.
How Does Gynecomastia Occur?
Gynecomastia can develop when a man’s testosterone levels decline in relation to his estrogen levels. A greater estrogen-to-testosterone ratio causes the development of this condition. Along with this, obesity, which causes an increase in oestrogen, can cause breast tissue to grow. If you’re overweight, you’re also more likely to have excess fat that can enlarge the breast tissue.
Treatment for Gynecomastia
Breast reduction surgery can effectively remove excess tissue in the male breast. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia, typically as an outpatient. With good skin tone, a moderate reduction can be made with a scar around the outer border of the areola or even through liposuction only. The procedure can take several hours, and a few weeks of rest may be necessary to fully recover.
What Results Can I Expect?
Breast reduction surgery for gynecomastia can give you a firmer, flatter, and more natural-looking chest. The procedure aims to provide a symmetrical physique and a secondary result of empowered confidence. If you struggle with this issue, this surgical procedure can be enough to give you the look you deserve.
