We all want to feel secure and confident in our own skin. But for many men, excess fat in the chest/pectoral area is a struggle. This area can often be resistant to exercise and diet, particularly for those suffering with gynecomastia.
Gynecomastia is a condition in which the male breast glandular tissue is enlarged. This typically occurs during infancy and even puberty and can be a result of imbalanced hormones or a side effect of certain medications.
This excess tissue can leave men with a feminine chest appearance and, many times, the only solution is a male breast reduction.
Dr. Andrew Lofman is an expert in gynecomastia treatment in metro Detroit. Many patients who see Dr. Andrew for a male breast reduction are fit and healthy yet struggle with firming the chest area. As an elite Michigan plastic surgeon, Dr. Andrew has helped countless men and women look and feel their best with plastic surgery treatments.
A male breast reduction is a common plastic surgery procedure that reduces the fat and tissue in the chest. Through a combination of liposuction and the removal of glandular tissue, Dr. Andrew can sculpt a more toned and tightened appearance to the male chest. The treatment is done under general anesthesia to keep patients comfortable and generally takes two to three hours. Most patients can return to everyday activities within a few days and the result is a more masculine look and heightened confidence.
