Men Have Options to Treat Gynecomastia, Columbus, Ohio, Plastic Surgeon ExplainsApril 20, 2011
Many men don’t realize they have options to treat Gynecomastia. Columbus, Ohio, plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson explains male breast reduction surgery as a solution.
Columbus, OH, March 22, 2011 (Vocus/PRWEB) — Gynecomastia is a medical term that refers to the unnatural enlargement of male breast tissue. Causes include genetics, medication side-effects, hormonal imbalances and weight gain. The result is noticeable breast tissue in the chest area – firm in some cases, saggier in others — and often combined with stretched or “puffy” areola and nipple areas. This condition is common during the male teenage years and often resolves on its own during the late teens or early twenties. When large breasts persist into male adulthood, they can be destructive to self-image and self-esteem.
Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Donaldson says, “Many men don’t realize that there is a minimally-invasive, quick fix for this condition. Gynecomastia can be very unflattering, and men don’t have to live with it.”
Donaldson continues, “A relatively simple procedure with hidden incisions can establish a more masculine physique. This helps men regain confidence on the beach, at the gym and in intimate situations.”
Male breast reduction is an elective cosmetic surgery that is designed to give men a flatter chest by removing excess fatty and glandular tissue. One tiny incision is made within the hair of each armpit, and Dr. Donaldson removes excess fat and skin with advanced liposuction techniques. In Columbus, OH, male breast reduction surgery is often paired with other body sculpting procedures for dramatic overall results.
“Downtime and recovery are minimal,” according to Dr. Donaldson, “and because the nerves are often stunned during surgery, there is seldom much pain.”
If you have always been embarrassed by the shape of your chest, or felt limited in the types of activities you can enjoy, then breast reduction surgery may be right for you. You should consult with your primary care physician to rule out medications that cause the condition and correct any underlying hormonal imbalances. Once these factors are controlled, along with a healthy diet and exercise, then the remaining fat and breast tissue will likely best be treated with surgery.
