Diet and exercise will not correct the problem, however, men do have a solution. At Chatham Plastic Surgery, Dr. Carl B. Pearl will discuss your options.

What is Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is a condition in men that causes their breast area to grow larger than desired. It can make guys embarrassed to remove their shirts in public, negatively affecting their self-confidence.

Wearing oversized shirts does little to correct the problem. Instead of hiding their chests, men are turning to Dr. Pearl at Chatham Plastic Surgery in Savannah, GA. Most clients benefit from breast reduction and liposuction to remove excess fat and tissue.

What Does the Surgical Procedure Involve?

Correcting issues associated with gynecomastia typically involve minor surgery. Mild cases are corrected with liposuction. A small incision is made around the areola, and suction cannulas are inserted to extract the extra tissue and fat.

Some men have larger breasts that may require a longer incision. After suctioning out the excess tissue and fat, Dr. Miller repositions the nipples to match your new chest shape.

It is an outpatient procedure, but it’s not one performed on a lunch break. You will require several days of recovery time. You also want to refrain from lifting heavy objects until the wounds are healed. It typically takes several weeks.

The Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery

Reducing the size of your breasts does more than give you a smoother, more contoured shape.

Guys feel more confident and are not ashamed to take their shirts off in public. Some guys report an improvement in their posture and find it easier to participate in physical activity.
