For males, excess fat and glandular tissue in the chest region can create the appearance of breasts. This condition, known as gynecomastia, can be a difficult and frustrating physical irregularity for many men to live with. Dr. Holzman can help these men using male breast reduction techniques to treat gynecomastia.
Depending on the severity of the case and the composition of the breast tissue, our surgeon will choose the procedure that will produce the most ideal results. For men with mainly fatty tissue in the breasts, liposuction may provide for ample reduction of breast volume. In cases in which dense glandular breast tissue is causing the appearance of breasts, our surgeon will make an incision around the nipple to access and remove the appropriate amount of tissue. Liposuction and breast tissue removal can be combined if necessary to address breasts with an overabundance of both tissues.
Male breast reduction yields a more masculine appearance to the chest area in males with gynecomastia. By evenly reducing the amount of excess tissue in the breasts, the chest appears flatter and more toned. Men who have undergone this procedure are often extremely pleased with the results and benefit from increased self-confidence and a more positive body image.
