Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia is the development of female-like breasts in men. This growth in breast tissue can occur for several reasons and often creates a significant negative change in a man’s sense of masculinity, self-identity, and self-esteem. New Jersey Plastic Surgery® in Montclair, New Jersey performs male breast reduction surgery on men experiencing gynecomastia in Essex County NJ.
What is Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
Gynecomastia is a medical term used to describe the growth of female-like breasts in men. This unwanted breast growth could be generated by a few different factors, such as a hormonal imbalance, a medical condition or the occurrence of a severe increase in weight. This growth of unflattering breast tissue often impacts the male’s self-esteem and as a result may cause depression or emotional distress. The New Jersey Plastic Surgery® team proudly offers gynecomastia treatment through male breast reduction surgery. This surgery enables males to feel self-confident and masculine once again.
Benefits of a Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Male breast reduction is incredibly successful at treating gynecomastia. After male breast reduction surgery, men experience a slim and more robust chest, and they often experience a boost in self-confidence, self-worth, and self-esteem. Many men have reported that they feel and look younger and are more revitalized following their male breast reduction surgery. Additionally, they often find that their clothes fit better and that they no longer experience unwanted harassment. They begin to feel comfortable while wearing a swimsuit or while wearing a revealing tank top.
Getting Back to Normal after Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Some discomfort and breast sensitivity may be experienced in the immediate days following the procedure. Serious pain may be treated with medication, and rest is recommended to assist in the body’s healing process. The doctor will apply a pressure dressing that will work to reduce swelling. This dressing should be kept on for whatever length of time is recommended by the doctor. The doctor will restrict certain activities following the surgery, but walking and other gentle exercises can be resumed immediately. You can return to your regular work schedule after a few days unless your profession requires certain strenuous physical activities. You will be advised to limit raising your arms for a specified period of time and to avoid direct sunlight to limit scarring.
