gynecomastia in Sarasota, Florida
Though this condition is rarely talked about, it’s actually quite common. Gynecomastia, the medical term for overly developed male breasts, affects an estimated 40 to 60% of men. It may affect only one breast or both. Though certain drugs and medical problems have been linked with male breast overdevelopment, there is no known cause in the vast majority of cases. Patients with gynecomastia may be embarrassed when their chests are exposed. A male breast reduction surgery can correct gynecomastia, and our Sarasota plastic surgeons can reshape the chest to a more masculine appearance. It is recommended that patients seeking male breast reduction surgery be at a healthy weight. The benefits of this surgery are not only physical, producing firmer, flatter and improved chest contours, but emotional as well, usually resulting in improved self-esteem. Some men may require a simple liposuction procedure, while others will need skin removal, and nipple repositioning to achieve natural-looking results.
