The scientific term gynecomastia is used for enlarged male breasts. This condition can create a feminine chest due to abnormally growing breast tissue. Many times, gynecomastia is related to an unknown hormonal issue. It can also be due to certain medications, steroids, obesity, or it can be hereditary. Males with this condition typically feel anxious and worried, especially in situations where the upper body and chest are seen, such as at the beach or pool or at the gym. Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia performs male breast reduction surgery for men who suffer from gynecomastia. This surgical procedure does have a high success rate. It is considered one of the more common cosmetic procedures for men at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery.
Male breast reduction surgery is reserved for men who have enlarged breasts that cannot be reduced through a healthy lifestyle or exercise and diet. If you feel anxiety or are bothered by the appearance of your chest (but physically healthy), you could possibly benefit from gynecomastia surgery by Dr. Movagharnia at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery. Teenagers may also attain positive results from gynecomastia treatment; however, a secondary procedure may be warranted later as an adult if abnormal breast tissue continues to form. In your initial consultation with Dr. Movagharnia, treatment considerations will be given, including the possibility of undergoing surgery to correct the condition.

Liposuction is often utilized during surgery for gynecomastia. With the patient safely under general anesthesia, liposuction reduces excess pockets of fat from the internal chest region. Afterward, any skin showing laxity will be removed to produce a more tightened look, and then the areola and nipple will be surgically reshaped and placed into a proper position. For most men, this method requires an incision close to where the glandular tissue collects. After the pockets of fat and excess skin have been removed, Dr. Movagharnia will pull and tighten the remaining skin.
What To Expect
Following your gynecomastia surgery, the chest will be secured with a compression bandage to help reduce bruising and swelling. For complex cases where a reconstructive method was used, a small tube for draining may be placed to help with fluid. The outcomes following male breast reduction surgery are almost immediately noticeable, and most men are extremely satisfied with the cosmetic enhancement. Any incisions made during treatment take several weeks to heal, and any scars left behind are barely seen. With your new, masculine-appearing chest, you may get permission from Dr. Movagharnia to engage in exercise and weight training, which will complement the end results.
