At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg, many men and women have access to a wide selection of aesthetic treatments that can be used to improve beauty and self-confidence. Men who struggle with gynecomastia, or enlarged breasts, may feel self-conscious about their appearance. This excess breast tissue that can form in the male breasts can be bothersome to many. With plastic surgery, these men can find hope with male breast reduction surgery.
What is male breast reduction?
The male breast reduction procedure is a common treatment performed for men with overdeveloped breasts. The procedure removes the excess glandular tissue in the breasts. Depending on the severity of the condition, men may also combine liposuction for fat removal at the same time. This often provides a better contour to the chest area that boosts self-confidence. Incisions may be made around the nipple area or underneath the breast to keep the scarring as minimal and as inconspicuous as possible. This can eliminate the appearance of having “work done.”
Who is a candidate?
Any male patient who has excess breast tissue and overdevelopment, and who is seeking a solution, may want to take the time to speak to a plastic surgeon about their options. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg, our doctors, Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot can provide treatments for men who feel self-conscious about the size of their chest. The most viable candidates for treatment are men who are over the age of 18, have noticeable excess breast tissues, and are in good overall health. Patients should also be within their ideal weight, as this treatment is not a weight loss procedure. Instead, it improves the body’s contours and targets a problem area with liposuction and glandular tissue removal.
