What Is Male Breast Reduction?
Many men live with Gynecomastia, an enlargement of their breasts because of an abnormal increase in their glandular tissue. While this problem is often embarrassing, it can be easily rectified with male breast reduction, a procedure performed under general anesthesia.
Male breast reduction is growing in popularity and is now the second most common cosmetic surgery performed on men because of the following reasons:
- Up to 60 percent of men suffer from gynecomastia.
- The condition can occur in slim men, not just larger men.
- Those who undergo male breast reduction report feeling more confident, with improved dating and career prospects.
Apogee Plastic Surgery is the perfect choice for men who want the very best in results and aftercare. Dr. John H. Miller and his compassionate team of professionals are pleased to welcome male breast reduction patients from Biloxi, Gulfport, Pascagoula, Hattiesburg, Long Beach, Ocean Springs, and the surrounding communities.
How Is Male Breast Reduction Performed?
Male breast reduction removes excess fat and skin tissue from the chest, leaving the area flatter and more appealing. The one to two hour operation usually takes place under general anesthesia. Dr. Miller will make an incision around the lower half of the nipple and perform liposuction using a cannula. The incisions will then be closed with fine, dissolvable stitches and covered with a sterile dressing.
Am I a Good Candidate for Male Breast Reduction?
During your consultation at Apogee Plastic Surgery, Dr. Miller will assess your individual needs to help you make the right choice about male breast reduction. You may be a good candidate for the surgery if you suffer from the following:
- Stubborn pockets of fat on the chest area that are resistant to diet and exercise
- Noticeable “man breasts,” creating embarrassment and a lack of self-confidence
- Unwelcome comments from friends and acquaintances
Dr. Miller has worked with male breast reduction patients throughout the Gulf Coast area, offering assistance to men from Biloxi, Gulfport, Pascagoula, Hattiesburg, Long Beach, Ocean Springs, and the surrounding Mississippi communities. He is an expert at determining whether male breast reduction is right for you.
