Male Chest Reduction, Gynecomastia, Dr. Salibian, West Hollywood

Contour your chest for greater confidence: Women are not the only patients who seek ways to improve their breast shape. Some men decide to seek medical assistance for a condition known as gynecomastia, the development of abnormally large mammary glands in males. Surgical correction is the most definitive way of addressing the problem of gynecomastia, which may be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, disease, or the use of certain drugs or supplements.

Gynecomastia can be more than a physical problem – it can cause emotional discomfort and impair an adolescent or adult male’s self-confidence. Some men may avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition.

This condition can be greatly improved by removing excess fat, glandular tissue, and/or skin. Usually, a small incision is made under the nipple and using either liposuction or traditional surgical methods excess breast tissue and fat are removed. Depending on the degree of breast enlargement and skin laxity, including possibly an enlarged areola and nipples, surgical excision of the surrounding skin and contouring of the chest are necessary. The result is a better proportioned and more masculine contoured upper body and the freedom and self-confidence to lead an active life.
