Large deposits of fat or glandular tissue in the male chest can be emasculating. In fact, the word describing the condition, gynecomastia, is actually derived from Greek words meaning “female breasts.” Diet and exercise are often sufficient to trim and tone other areas of the body, but large male breasts can seem immune to even the most rigorous workout regimen.
If you are suffering from this embarrassing condition, Houston male plastic surgeons Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann would be happy to meet with you for a confidential consultation to discuss your male breast reduction options.
Causes of gynecomastia
Gynecomastia may be caused by a number of factors. Commonly, this feminizing issue is a result of things such as:
- Weight gain
- Hormone disruptions
- Certain medications
- Steroid use
Depending on the cause of your condition, Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann may recommend lifestyle changes in addition to surgical options.
Male Breast Reduction
Male breast reduction is the only way to properly treat gynecomastia. If your breasts are a result of fat alone, reducing their appearance and restoring a masculine look may require nothing more than a male liposuction procedure. With this option, Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann will utilize state-of-the-art liposuction technology to remove stubborn deposits of fat and help skin form to your naturally manly contours.
If glandular tissue is responsible for your gynecomastia, it will need to be removed for a full restoration of your physique. Your surgical options and what you need to do in preparation will be discussed in full during your male breast reduction consultation.
