Gynecomastia Northern Virginia
Excess fat deposits or glandular tissue in the chests of males can be both emasculating and embarrassing. Larger breasts on males can interfere with clothing options, make exercise and physical activity more difficult, and generally detract from a strong and healthy physique.
Derived from Greek words meaning “woman-like” and “breasts,” gynecomastia is the medical name for excessive breast tissue in males. This accumulation of tissue may be caused by factors as varied as medications, hormones, and weight fluctuations, and even thinner men may experience this condition.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your chest, Washington, DC male plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Desman would be happy to meet with you to help you determine if gynecomastia is right for you.
If you are a male living with excessive breast tissue in or around Washington, DC, please contact the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery online or by calling (703) 924-3144 to schedule a male breast reduction consultation with Dr. Desman.
Male Breast Reduction
Treating gynecomastia may require little more than the removal of excess fat deposits with liposuction. Dr. Desman offers male liposuction techniques specifically designed to remove fat while encouraging skin to conform to underlying muscle.
Additional steps may be necessary if glandular tissue is responsible for your gynecomastia. This will be based on your specific needs and discussed in greater detail during your male breast reduction consultation.
Commonly, gynecomastia is accompanied by stubborn deposits of fat in other areas of the body as well. When this is the case, Dr. Desman may recommend additional sculpting treatments for optimal results. Male plastic surgery procedures such as abdominoplasty can be highly complementary to breast reduction, helping produce manly definitions and a strong, healthy-looking build. What can best help you reach your goals will be determined during your body sculpting consultation with Dr. Desman.
