A huge population of men worldwide suffers from a condition known as gynecomastia or in simple words, enlargement of the male breasts. Although the degree of the condition may vary, it is rather common among boys and men who are at different stages of development in their lives.
Gynecomastia can be easily noticed by other people in places where you have to take your shirt off. For example, at the beach, pool or your gym locker room. And with summer approaching, it’s highly likely that as a man, you will find yourself in such places where you will have no choice but to remove your shirt. This may cause you to be self-conscious of your appearance – a common reaction to gynecomastia.
If you too, like many men across the globe, have been affected by gynecomastia, and you would like to do something about it, a male breast reduction surgery by Dr. Perry Liu is ideal for you. Dr. Liu has had years of training and experience in various kinds of plastic surgeries, and he delivers one of the best gynecomastia surgery Los Angeles can offer.
How gynecomastia surgery can help you
Just like a breast reduction surgery in women, male breast reduction surgery also removes excess fat and/or glandular tissue from the patient’s breasts. There are several surgical methods that can be used, like the Webster incision, the minimally invasive method, and the ultrasonic liposuction method. Depending on how much excess fat you have and your unique individual condition, Dr. Perry Liu will decide, after careful consideration, which will work best for you.
The result of a male breast reduction surgery is a flatter, firmer, more contoured masculine chest that is natural-looking. After your surgery, you will most likely be able to resume your normal daily routine after three to seven days. However, if you wish to engage in vigorous physical activities like an intense workout session, it is suggested that you wait for about three weeks.
Perhaps the biggest advantage of getting a male breast reduction surgery from one of the top Los Angeles gynecomastia surgeons is that you will work with a doctor who understands your concerns, who wants to make sure your aesthetic goals are met through personalized treatments. Dr. Liu knows that it takes more than just knowledge and surgical skills to deliver the aesthetic results that patients want; it also takes a deep understanding and grasp of the human body as art.
However, before you go ahead with surgery, it’s important to determine the cause of it. Only when serious medical conditions like organ failure or cancer are ruled out after a series of tests and physical examination, Dr. Liu will suggest gynecomastia surgery.
An eligible candidate for male breast reduction surgery should be physically fit and healthy with no serious medical problems. He should not smoke or drink heavily or take steroids regularly. Only after you have stopped these habits can you opt for the surgery. Men who have firm skin with great elasticity are ideal candidates too. Call today to make an appointment.
