San Antonio Male Breast Reduction Surgery – Gynecomastia

Categories Tags

There are a staggering number of men that suffer from gynecomastia, a condition that causes the over development of breast tissue. This condition often appears during adolescence but can become an issue at any stage of life. Gynecomastia almost always cause young men to become increasingly self conscious. San Antonio board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Schaffer treats gynecomastia with a surgical procedure called male breast reduction.

Using male breast reduction, Dr. Schaffer removes fat and/or glandular tissue from the breasts as need.  In some extreme cases excess skin may also be removed. In most cases, liposuction is used to remove the excess fat. The results of San Antonio male breast reduction are a flatter, firmer, better contoured chest.

Male breast reduction is not only physically changing but emotionally changing as well. Patients who suffer from gynecomastia are often very self conscious. Many young men avoid social gathering that may include taking off their shirt such as going to the beach. Male breast reduction can not only improve the physical appearance but also the emotional well being of the man.
