Male plastic surgery for gynecomastia on the rise in Beverly Hills
“Man boobs,” “Moobs,” we’ve all heard the unpleasant names used to describe excessive breast tissue in the average guy. The medical term for this problem is gynecomastia, and, in many cases, “man boobs” are not the result of a poor diet or exercise regimen. Female-like breasts on the male body can develop due to excess glandular or fatty tissue, hormonal fluctuations, or the use of certain types of medication. During consultation for male breast reduction, Dr. Dennis Dass will perform a thorough evaluation to rule out any concerning health conditions.
Whatever the true name for man boobs, whatever the cause, the effects of male breasts can be devastating. Men of all ages may find that they dress in clothing that hides their problem. Some may reach a point where embarrassment over their physique can cause isolation from others and avoidance of social situations. Male breasts can be a real problem for the man who has them, but for the expert in plastic surgery, excess breast tissue is treatable. Dr. Dennis Dass of Beverly Hills has helped many men regain confidence in their body with gynecomastia surgery.
Reduce Man Boobs
The only way to reduce male breasts is with cosmetic surgery, and more men are catching on to this fact. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that 21,000 procedures for male breast reduction were performed in 2012. Safe and effective, breast reduction surgery is ideal when excess breast tissue is causing emotional distress.
Gynecomastia surgery is performed on an outpatient basis in the Beverly Hills area. Using specific medications, patients are able to experience a pain-free procedure. Liposuction may be used to remove excess fatty tissue from the breast gently and effectively, while glandular tissue beneath the nipple will be removed surgically.
An effective solution for a unique problem
The presence of female-like breasts or even puffy nipples can be very disruptive to any man’s life. Gynecomastia can affect young men still in their teens, and men well into adulthood. The degree of gynecomastia can vary from person to person. Regardless of severity, your skilled cosmetic surgeon has a solution that can return the chest to a flat, masculine state. As long as weight does not fluctuate greatly, the results of gynecomastia surgery can last many years, if not a lifetime.
