What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a medical condition that causes the male breast to over-develop, creating excess tissue and fat that results in the appearance of abnormally large breasts. This physical condition can affect both adolescents and adults, and in many cases the cause is unknown.
Though gynecomastia can be impacted by weight gain, its presence is most often linked to:
- Hormonal imbalances throughout the aging process, particularly during puberty
- Genetic disorders and other illnesses
- Anabolic steroid use
- Marijuana use
- Medicinal side affects
For men suffering from gynecomastia, diet or exercise typically have little impact on the size and appearance of the breasts. Often times men who seek to reduce the size of their breasts find that the rest of the body becomes toned while breasts continue to increase in size or remain unresponsive. With gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Rifai can target and remove excess tissue and fat that neither diet nor exercise can eliminate.
Our Male Breast Reduction Procedure
Gynecomastia surgery is usually performed to completion within 1 to 2 hours. Most procedures require little more than a small, inconspicuous incision through which the excess glandular tissue can be removed with liposuction.
The full recovery period is usually about 6 weeks, during which time it is important to refrain from heavy lifting and strenuous activities.
Dr. Rifai can address any specific concerns or procedural customizations during your personal confidential consultation.
