Some men develop a condition called gynecomastia, which is excess breast fat and breast tissue. This condition may be attributed to a large weight gain, genetics, the aging process or simply to their own body developing in this way.
It can be embarrassing, especially for young man who refuses to swim without a shirt, to take his shirt off in front of others or who refuses to wear any top that might be form fitting. Men who have such excess breast fat and breast tissue might require a male breast reduction. Whatever the reason for the condition, Dr. Joshua Halpern can help. At a complimentary consultation Dr. Halpern will examine the patient, see if they are a good candidate for the surgery, go over the patient’s goals and discuss multiple aspects of the male breast reduction.
Men who have this procedure typically find their quality of life improves greatly. They feel freer, are not conscientious about their bodies as they were before and find that their clothing options have increased greatly. It is a joy to see men be able to have the peace of mind they were missing and to see them enjoy their lives so much more than they did before.
There are four ways to perform a male breast reduction:
- Liposuction: This is a straightforward fat removal technique. It assumes that there is mainly extra fat to be removed.
- Mini-scar: This technique is an excellent approach to the removal of fat and excess male breast tissue through an incision around the areola. It heals so well that in some patients it is very hard to find the scar after surgery.
- Male Breast Reduction: A technique which removes fat, excess breast tissue and skin through a larger incision.
- Ultrashape: For the right candidate it involves the use of pulsed ultrasonic waves to permanently remove the fat without surgery.
When Dr. Halpern sees his young male breast reduction patients years later, they tell him how happy they are and how much the surgery meant to them. They go to the beach with just their shorts, no shirts and feel proud of their bodies.
