Male Breast Reduction
Male patients can undergo gynecomastia surgery in Atlanta at Astra Plastic Surgery to reduce the prominence of male breasts and restore a more masculine-looking chest. Enlarged male breasts are not always caused by poor diet and lack of exercise. Some men have enlarged breasts due to gynecomastia – a condition caused by the swelling or enlargement of breast tissue. Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Killingsworth, Dr. Farber, and our plastic surgery team perform gynecomastia surgery to help Atlanta patients restore confidence in their appearance.
What Is Gynecomastia?
Many men have enlarged breasts due to gynecomastia; this condition can cause both emotional and physical problems. Although it is not known what specifically causes gynecomastia, a number of factors that may contribute to the development of enlarged breasts in men include heredity, fluctuations in weight, the use of certain prescription medications, liver function problems, taking anabolic steroids or herbal testosterone additives, excessive alcohol or tobacco use, and the natural aging process.
In some cases, gynecomastia may develop for no explicable reason at all. Gynecomastia often begins in adolescence, causing a lack of confidence and self-esteem at a very young age. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer gynecomastia surgery in a very confidential and comfortable environment. Our Atlanta plastic surgeons are committed to providing patients with the highest standards of safety and quality care.
What Are The Benefits Of Gynecomastia Surgery?
The defining structure of the male breast is the pectoralis muscle, and a flat or chiseled chest is often thought to represent masculinity. The existence of large male breasts alters bodily harmony by obstructing the shape of the pectorals muscle; excessive adipose or glandular tissue may actually obscure the muscle structure itself. This causes a distortion of the male physique. Men who feel they have abnormal or feminine breasts often hide their chest with excessive clothing or special undergarments.
