Male Gynecomastia Surgery
Men of all ages and body mass indexes can experience gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts. This condition can occur with one or both breasts, resulting in localized increase of tissue or fat, often accompanied by sagging or changes to the areolas. There are a variety of causes of male gynecomastia, but the most effective treatment is male breast reduction surgery. Dr. Munique Maia and our team at Maia Plastic Surgery offer male gynecomastia surgery to reduce and transform breasts for men at our clinic in the greater Washington, DC, metro area.
Causes of Gynecomastia
There is not one specific cause of gynecomastia. Male breast enlargement can occur with weight gain, but it can also occur without weight gain and in men of all ages. The breasts can become larger with excess glandular and fat issues, as well as extra skin. The breast tissue can sag, elongating or distorting the areola size. Some of the possible causes of gynecomastia include:
- Hormonal changes
- Weight gain
- Medication side effect
Regardless of the cause of gynecomastia, many men can be self-conscious of the appearance of larger male breasts. A breast reduction surgery, or male gynecomastia surgery, can restore a more masculine appearance to the chest.
Male gynecomastia surgery removes excess fat and breast tissue, as well as excess skin. The procedure can reform the male breasts with the desired firmness and contours and reshape the areola if necessary. Dr. Maia has successfully reduced male breast tissue and reshaped the chest tissue on many of her male patients with outstanding, natural results.
