Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Westlake & Cleveland, OH

Gynecomastia, the medical condition characterized by enlarged male breasts, is more common than you might think. Experts estimate that between 40 and 60 percent of men have oversized breasts, and unfortunately diet and exercise efforts often go unnoticed.

How the Operation Enhances Masculinity

Oversized male breasts are uncomfortable in both a physical and psychological sense. Men with enlarged breasts are usually very self-conscious of the way they look. They might avoid wearing certain types of clothing or participating in certain activities because they feel embarrassed of their chest. In the most extreme cases, men with large breasts hold themselves back from professional or social opportunities because they are paralyzed with shame or embarrassment.

Suddenly, you feel confident in yourself. You are no longer embarrassed to go to the gym, pool or beach. Your clothing fits better and you can wear tighter styles. Overall, you will have the confidence you need to live life to the fullest.

More about Gynecomastia Correction

Male Breast Reduction Surgery Westlake, OHThere are several components to the gynecomastia correction operation:

Remove excess fat. Excess pockets of fat are eliminated using liposuction techniques.

Remove excess glandular tissue. Unlike fat, glandular tissue cannot be treated with liposuction. The glandular tissue must be surgically excised from the chest.

Remove excess skin. Excess lax skin is removed to improve the appearance of sagging.

Tighten the remaining skin. The remaining skin is tightened over the new breast contour.

Modify the nipples/areolas. If the areolas are stretched-out or oversized, they can be modified as needed. The nipples/areolas can also be relocated to a higher position on the breast.

Most men are concerned about the possibility of scarring from the surgical incisions. Dr. Raj is extremely conscientious when making the incisions and places them carefully to minimize the possibility of scarring. Normally, the scarring fades over time until it is virtually invisible.
