Undergoing the male breast reduction procedure
- Posted on: Sep 15 2020
Gynecomastia, or excess male breast tissue, is a condition that impacts many men in the area of San Antonio, Texas. There are several reasons why this condition can occur, though it often has to do with significant weight changes or genetics. Men who are embarrassed by this condition will find that plastic surgeons can provide a solution: male breast reduction.
What is male breast reduction?
Just as women with larger breasts can have breast tissue removed to make their chest smaller, men have that same opportunity. The male breast reduction can be done in one of two ways. Dr. Jessica Belz can remove the breast tissue manually via surgery, or can reduce the tissues through liposuction procedures in the chest. Both methods are effective, and these options can be discussed during the initial consultation appointment and evaluation.
Why choose male breast reduction?
This procedure is considered a cosmetic or elective surgery as there are no health problems that can occur due to excess male breast tissue. Elective surgeries are not covered by health insurance policies and therefore, patients may want to talk about financing options available to them to cover the cost. For many men who have dealt with the embarrassment of excess male breast tissue, this procedure is an investment in themselves and their self-confidence. This procedure is effective, safe, and highly recommended for men who feel uncomfortable in their own skin due to gynecomastia.
Who is a candidate?
Any male adult who is bothered by excess breast tissue is welcome to request an appointment with Dr. Jessica Belz to discuss their options and find out if they are a good fit for this surgical procedure.
