A lot of men will experience fat accumulation in their breasts for a variety of reasons. This fat accumulation creates the appearance of man boobs, which can be an embarrassing issue to deal with. Man boobs can be corrected through liposuction, but in some cases, excess fat is not the only cause of enlarged male breasts.
Gynecomastia is a condition that occurs in some males and causes the breasts to become enlarged due to the presence of excess glandular tissue. Patients who suffer from gynecomastia may also have excess fat in their breasts. In order to ensure the issue is properly corrected, liposuction will be used to remove the fat, and the excess glandular tissue will need to be surgically excised.
At Franklin Skin and Laser, surgeon Dr. Steven Bengelsdorf offers male breast reduction surgery that can provide those suffering from gynecomastia with a flatter and more masculine-looking chest.
