Male Breast Reduction Can Renew Confidence
Though it’s not common for most men, for some gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts) proves a major source of embarrassment. One cause of this condition can be from a blockage of testosterone. Another cause is an elevation of estrogen, which in men normally remains much lower than testosterone. This condition usually occurs in men between ages 50–80.
For other men, the cause could be excess weight gain, or sagging skin due to weight loss. No matter when and why it happens, our skilled team can provide excellent options to help you regain a sense of confidence with our male breast reduction procedure that will make you feel like yourself again.
The Consultation Experience
The in-office 3D Imager we use allows us to give an estimate of how you will look after the surgery. This sort of imagery reassures many men that are having doubts about undergoing the procedure. However, you should also feel assured that our team is highly skilled. Dr. Franckle is a member of numerous professional societies including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and more. His extensive knowledge of male breast reduction makes our office a wonderful place for this procedure and other breast-related surgeries.
What the Surgery Entails
Knowing more about the undertaking can alleviate fear. To remove the excess flesh, Dr. Franckle uses a combination of excision and liposuction. The procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia, but exceptions do apply.
Recovery from Gynecomastia
After the male breast reduction surgery, you may notice changes immediately to the aesthetics of your chest. Though soreness is likely to occur, many patients find that acetaminophen reduces the soreness. Pain medication may also be prescribed. Most patients are able to return to work and their daily routines after a few days of recuperation.
Imagine not having to wear extra large clothing or avoiding the beach because of excess flesh in your chest area. Schedule a consultation to see if male breast reduction is right for you.
