Surgery Miami

While larger breasts are usually preferred for women, this is not the case when it comes to men. As a matter of fact, not having a tight, muscular chest can cause a great deal of physical and psychological discomfort. Do you feel as if you simply cannot get your pectoral muscles as defined as you want? Perhaps you should look into a gynecomastia procedure to see if it can solve your aesthetic concerns.

Gynecomastia, a condition that is characterized by an enlargement of breast tissues, can develop for a variety of reasons including:

  • Weight gain
  • Hormonal changes
  • Genetic factors
  • Steroid use

A gynecomastia surgery (which is also known as a male breast reduction) was designed to remove excess tissue and fat from the chest area to create a more youthful, masculine pectoral contour. There are two primary ways it is performed:

Surgical excision

During this procedure, incisions are made in specific areas to reduce scarring. Then excess body tissue is then eliminated surgically. This operation is ideal for those with gynecomastia caused by steroid use or hormonal changes.

Ultrasonic liposuction

This procedure is ideal for men who just have excess fat in their chest area. Only a small incision is required and then an ultrasound breaks down the fat tissue for easier removal.

A combination of these procedures can be used as well. If needed, male pectoral implants can be used to create the proper contour.
