Although all men have some glandular breast tissue, some individuals experience an excess or swelling of this tissue. The common condition, known as gynecomastia, is often caused by a hormone imbalance. Fortunately, gynecomastia is often easily treatable.
At Sukkar Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we can help men of all ages achieve a flatter, more sculpted chest through male breast reduction surgery. There are two main ways in which we perform male breast reduction surgery to treat gynecomastia. The first method is a bit less extensive, since the cosmetic concern can often be addressed quickly and simply with liposuction. This technique is also considered to be less invasive, and it is generally most effective when the main cause of enlarged breasts is an excess of fatty tissue.
For patients who have glandular breast tissue that is disproportionate with the rest of the chest and body, a more extensive male breast reduction procedure is often recommended to create the desired look. This technique requires the excision of glandular tissue to reduce the size of the breasts, and it sometimes involves the removal of excess skin. Regardless of which approach is needed, Dr. Sam Sukkar is extremely careful during surgery to minimize the risk of scarring. Because the male chest is often more visible, his goal is to avoid noticeable scarring altogether while achieving a result that appears naturally proportionate and firm.
