Gynecomastia, or enlarged breast tissue, is a common condition among men and doesn’t have to be severe to cause feelings of self-consciousness. If your enlarged breast tissue is hurting your confidence and you want to achieve a more masculine chest, you might be ready for a male breast reduction! Keep reading to make sure you’re a candidate.

Diet and exercise fail to show results

Almost all men experience some degree of gynecomastia during their lifetime, whether it’s after puberty, weight loss or gain, or with age. The male breast reduction is not an alternative to weight loss, but if enlarged breast tissue is resistant to diet and exercise, it might be time to consider the male breast reduction procedure.

You are in good health

Gynecomastia can be part of the natural aging process, but there are many other factors that can contribute to its development. Use of alcohol, steroids, and other drugs and medications can contribute to enlarged breast tissue. These should all be stopped prior to treatment to ensure gynecomastia does not return. The appearance of enlarged breast tissue can sometimes be caused by hormonal changes related to an underlying condition, so make sure you see your physician to ensure that you are healthy enough for treatment!

You’re ready for a surgical procedure

Being a candidate for the male breast reduction isn’t just about being physically ready, you’ll also want to make sure you’re mentally prepared for a surgical procedure. The male breast reduction involves the use of liposuction techniques to remove stubborn fat, or surgical excision to remove excess tissue. Although incisions are necessary, the procedure is a fairly simple one and can be performed under local anesthesia. Although recovery is typically short, you’ll still want to make sure you’re ready for a day or two off work to rest and recover at home.

Don’t let gynecomastia hurt your confidence any longer! Contact Aspira Plastic Surgery today and schedule your consultation with Dr. Erella to ensure that you are a candidate for treatment.
