Male Breast Reduction
A square, chiseled chest is the sign of a man who is fit and confident. Unfortunately, it also may seem like only a dream for men living with gynecomastia, a condition that causes a feminine-looking chest appearance in almost half of the male population. Thankfully, our surgeons are skilled at performing breast reduction for men who want to tighten and tone their chest.
To get started with your breast reduction procedure, request a consultation at The Wall Center, or call our office at (888) 791-1053 . Conveniently located in Shreveport, Louisiana, we offer a complete array of cosmetic surgery and skin care treatments through Jade MediSpa.
Who Needs It?
Men consider breast reduction to correct enlarged breasts by removing fat, glandular tissue, and excess skin to create a more sculpted chest contour. This procedure permanently improves chest appearance, as long as a patient continues to live a healthy lifestyle and does not gain a large amount of weight. Men feel more confident, more masculine, and more assured about their appearance after male breast reduction.
During your initial consultation, your board-certified plastic surgeon will perform a thorough evaluation and determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. Together, we will review all the steps you need to take to best prepare for your procedure.
The procedure used to correct a patient's gynecomastia depends on whether the feminine breast appearance is caused by excess glandular tissue, unwanted fatty tissue, or both. Glandular tissue is removed primarily through the use of a scalpel, while liposuction in Louisiana is the most effective method to remove fat. In men who have excess glandular and fatty tissue, surgical excision and liposuction will be used together.
In general, male breast reduction requires very small incisions that are not very noticeable once fully healed. Often, the incisions are placed on the edge of the areola (the dark skin that surrounds the nipple) or under the arm. If a large volume of tissue is removed, some skin may need to be excised to create a tight and contoured appearance.
Most men are much more confident about wearing more fitted shirts or even exposing their bare chest on the beach or at the pool after breast reduction. We've seen remarkable increases in self esteem and confidence in our male patients.
