Men with excess breast tissue present on the chest may feel extremely self-conscious about their appearance at the pool, the beach, or even while completing yard work without a top on. Dr. Thomas Weiner and his team in Houston, TX believes in providing solutions for individuals who want a more masculine look and address this common problem referred to as gynecomastia.
What causes gynecomastia?
There are various reasons why a man may experience gynecomastia. Sometimes, patients will naturally have excess fat and breast tissues in the chest due to genetics. Other times, excess fat may be caused by obesity. Regardless of the cause, this condition is known for causing many men to feel extremely self-conscious in the way they look and may impact their emotional wellbeing. By speaking with a plastic surgeon such as Dr. Thomas Weiner about treatment options, many men are able to restore their confidence and enjoy a more manly look.
What occurs during gynecomastia?
In most instances of gynecomastia, men can achieve an improved appearance with a liposuction procedure. Liposuction removes the excess fat and breast tissue quickly and easily from the chest. The procedure is done with proper sedation and anesthetics to ensure patient comfort from start to finish, and because this procedure is minimally invasive, patients do not need to schedule an extensive period of time off of work and other social activities afterwards. Patients should make sure they follow the post-operative instructions given by the doctor to reduce the risk of infection and other complications that can arise as with any surgical procedure. When restrictions are lifted, men can get back to their regular activities with improved confidence!
