Gynecomastia(Male Breast Reduction)

New York City (NYC), Manhattan and all of New York (NY)

Enlargement of the breasts in men is called gynecomastia. This condition can be caused by three components: Fatty tissue, breast tissue, or a mixture of fatty and breast tissues. Liposuction can usually treat the condition as long as the cause is not primarily breast tissue. If this were the case the treatment is subcutaneous mastectomy whereby an incision is made in the lower pole of the areola. In this operation the breast tissue is actually cut out. Regardless whether the treatment is liposuction or subcutaneous mastectomy the result is permanent. What a relief it is to be able to show one's chest and not be embarrassed.

Furthermore one can then develop the pectoral muscles which can be appreciated without the camouflaging effect of the enlarged breasts. Male breast reduction liposuction for gynecomastia is probably the most common operation sought by men. It is important to appreciate, though, that most of the time liposuction is associated with an abdominal pouch and love handles. If this is the case it is best to treat all three areas at the same time. By doing so you have a better overall result, have only one operation, one recovery period, and it is more economical.
