Do you find yourself changing in the bathroom stall instead of in the gym locker room because of your excess breast tissue? Are you self-conscious about spending time at the pool due to enlarged breasts? If you are a male who is dealing with these concerns, you have probably been diagnosed with a condition called gynecomastia. While there is no medical issue associated with gynecomastia, it can impact one’s self-esteem and body contours. Men are strongly encouraged to speak to Dr. Thomas Wiener of Houston, TX about their concerns to find out if breast reduction surgery, or gynecomastia surgery, is right for them.
What happens during male breast reduction surgery?
In most cases, Dr. Thomas Wiener will be able to use liposuction to reduce the fat cells and breast tissues that have accumulated in the chest area. This will involve a very small incision along the areola or underneath the armpit. The cannula is inserted into the body and is the instrument used to suction out excess fat and breast tissue. This permanently removes the fat and tissues for a more sculpted appearance to the chest.
Who is a candidate?
Any male patient who is self-conscious about their appearance due to large breasts may be considered a candidate for gynecomastia surgery. We invite patients to book a consultation visit and initial evaluation with Dr. Thomas Wiener. This is a great time for patients to ask questions about the procedure and fully understand the process required to help combat enlarged breast tissues and improve self-confidence. The best patients for the procedure are adult men who are in overall good health and who live active lifestyles, eat a proper diet, and are within their ideal weight range.
