If you are one of the many men with excess breast tissue instead of a hard, contoured chest, you might feel frustrated and embarrassed by your appearance. This is especially true during the summer season, when beach trips and pool parties force you to take off your shirt for the world to see.
You might actually have a condition called gynecomastia that causes excess breast tissue to accumulate on your chest. Learn more about this issue so you can find a plastic surgeon who will help you achieve the body you’ve always wanted.
Gynecomastia could indicate that you have an endocrine system disorder rooted in an imbalance of estrogen and testosterone hormones in your body. Some men develop gynecomastia after birth or at puberty, but the majority experience this problem as they get older, especially after the age of 50. The swollen breast gland tissue and breast tenderness that defines gynecomastia isn’t dangerous, but it still diminishes your confidence and quality of life.
Gynecomastia can be treated and eliminated through gynecomastia surgery. This is called a male breast reduction surgery that removes your excess breast tissue to reveal your defined, contoured chest underneath.
The best candidates for gynecomastia surgery are adult men who are in good physical health and have experienced psychological side effects of enlarged breasts, like low confidence and depression. After gynecomastia surgery, you can expect your chest to look flatter, firmer, and more traditionally masculine.
Gynecomastia isn’t a complicated surgery, especially when you use the right plastic surgeon. Dr. Landon of Landon Plastic Surgery has the experience and qualifications needed to expertly remove fatty breast tissue and sculpt your more masculine chest.
