At Thomas Wiener Plastic Surgery, we understand that men and women want to look and feel their best. Men who have excess breast tissue, resulting in a condition known as gynecomastia, can seek solutions with our team. Surgery can be performed to reduce the breast tissue in the chest area and give a more masculine appearance. This surgery is readily available at our facility.
What is done during gynecomastia surgery?
Dr. Thomas Wiener is a board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate patients to determine if they are appropriate candidates for this surgery. Men with excess fat and breast tissue ma feel self-conscious about their appearance, especially in situations where they may be exposing their bare chest. To restore confidence, surgical procedures are used. Men with gynecomastia can restore their confidence and masculinity with a simple surgery performed by our professional provider. The doctor may use liposuction to remove fat and breast tissue before removing excess skin in the area for a tighter, firmer chest area. The procedure is done within approximately an hour to an hour and a half and requires minor downtime and recovery. Patients can ask their doctor how long they may need off of work, school, and other social activities to heal properly.
What other options are available?
Typically, men who are diagnosed with this condition have often tried alternative methods of addressing this extra tissue and fat. Many follow a nutritious diet and consider lifting weight or integrating more exercise into their routine. However, these stubborn areas often do not respond well to changes in diet and exercise, and often require the assistance of a plastic surgeon to resolve. During a consultation appointment, Dr. Thomas Wiener will discuss with patients the alternative solutions they have attempted to reduce the appearance of their condition in the past.
