Gynecomastia | Male Breast Reduction | Salt Lake City
It can be caused by a hormonal imbalance or for no known reason, but having enlarged breast tissue when you’re a man can leave you feeling self-conscious, and it can greatly impact your self-esteem. As opposed to simple fatty tissue, true gynecomastia is the development of glandular breast tissue in men. Whatever the cause, Dr. Rodrigues can correct this potentially embarassing condition.
Am I A Candidate for Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
If you are a male of any age, in good general health, do not smoke and have realistic expectations for your results, you may be an excellent candidate for male breast reduction surgery.
Male breast reduction surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and takes one to three hours. There are several techniques that may be used to perform male breast reduction, depending on the cause and your desired results:
- Ultrasound-assisted liposuction
- Surgical removal combined with liposuction
Following male breast reduction surgery, you will experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort which will diminish over the first week or two. You should be able to return to your normal activities within a week to ten days.
Dr. Rodrigues will be happy to consult with you personally to help you arrive at the best treatment options for your individual situation.
