Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Emile Brown offers a variety of male breast reduction options to patients in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Annapolis and the surrounding areas of Maryland.
What is a Male Breast Reduction?
A typical male chest is very flat. However, excessive weight gain, certain medications, and even heredity can cause men to develop what appear to be breasts. These breasts often do not go away, even after losing weight or stopping medication. Male breast reduction surgery is then needed to provide a more masculine appearance.
Male breast reduction procedures are similar to those performed on females, with the only difference being the amount of tissue that’s extracted.
Benefits of a Male Breast Reduction
Men who have developed breasts are often very self-conscious about them. As a result, they may abstain from going to the gym, hanging out at the beach, or participating in sports. Many even feel unattractive, and may avoid relationships with women because of it. Following a male breast reduction procedure, many guys report that they are able to enjoy life to its fullest again.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Male Breast Reduction?
If you notice excess skin and jiggling in the chest area, a male breast reduction could be for you. Speak with one of our knowledgeable surgeons to determine the type of results you might expect.
How are Male Breast Reduction Procedures Performed?
Excess tissues are trimmed away, and then the outer tissue is secured with sutures. In cases where men have a great deal of excess fat, liposuction may be performed as well. Surgical techniques are specifically chosen to help redefine the pectorals and give the chest a more sculpted appearance.
