Are you bothered by the way your chest looks?
How would it feel to have the confidence to go topless?
Maybe you avoid intimacy or physical activities out of embarrassment or self-consciousness.
Maybe you’ve tried dieting and exercise but have not found them effective in reducing the size of your breasts.
Your self-confidence defines the way you feel about yourself and can affect your relationships.
If you are living with gynecomastia (abnormal breast enlargement) or “man boobs,” physical activities and physical intimacy may be emotionally debilitating for you.
Gynecomastia is the condition of enlarged breasts in men that can occur at any age.
- It is influenced by a variety of causes including hormones, puberty, diet, obesity, aging and the use of steroids or some medications.
- Before a reduction procedure, it is important that the underlying cause of your breast enlargement be addressed.
- Gynecomastia is characterized by excess localized fat and glandular tissue that can be present in one or both breasts.
- The symptoms of gynecomastia are tenderness and swelling of the breast tissue.
- Gynecomastia isn’t a serious problem, but it can be difficult to cope with.
The good news? There is a surgical option!
Surgery to correct gynecomastia is a specialized surgery that reduces breast size and flattens and enhances the contours of the chest. The procedure is technically called “reduction mammaplasty.”
You would be a good candidate for the procedure if your breast development has stabilized, you are physically healthy and are embarrassed by the size of your breasts.
Dr. Dunkley will give you instructions for caring for your incisions, which will be located on the border of your areolae. It is important that your incisions are not subjected to excessive force or motion during the time of healing.
During your consultation, remember to ask Dr. Dunkley any questions you may have about what you can expect during your recovery period.
Results are immediately visible and most patients return to work four or five days after surgery.
Take your shirt off with confidence.
