Although a full chest is often desired by women, for men, this is not typically the case. However, it is not uncommon for physical changes to occur that result in larger than normal male breasts. When your body begins to change shape, develop extra skin, and look less firm and toned than you would like, you may begin searching for answers. One word you may have come across in your search is “gynecomastia.”
Also referred to by some as “man boobs,” gynecomastia is a condition in the male body characterized by swelling in the breast tissue. Breast tissue can develop secondary to changes during puberty, aging, as a result of medications, or due to certain health conditions. While there are many ways one can develop gynecomastia, surgery is the most effective solution to address the problem.
How Does Gynecomastia Surgery Work?
During the surgical procedure, Dr. Dawli will remove any excess fat and glandular tissue to create a more masculine chest contour that is flatter. firmer, and contoured. Performed under general anesthesia, gynecomastia surgery can take between 2 to 4 hours. Dr. Dawli and the team at Buffalo Plastic Surgery understand how personal the choice to have surgery can be; you can rest assured that our office offers discreet and safe procedures so that every patient can achieve the look he desires.
