Male Breast Reduction Richmond
Gynecomastia is a common condition affecting men of all ages, although it tends to peak during the teenage years, and then again later in life. It is an excessive development of glandular or fatty tissue (or both) of the male breast and may be a result of your genetic make-up, hormones, certain diseases, drugs, or medications. Regardless of its cause, many men seek treatment because of feelings of self-consciousness, social discomfort, or pain. Surgical options begin with liposuction of the affected area. However, it is often necessary to combine it with removal of the excess tissue through a surgical excision in order to achieve your best results. If you have extra skin, this also needs to be removed for proper shape. This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Following the procedure, patients wear a fitted post-operative garment (vest), and it is critically important to avoid vigorous activity during the initial recovery period.
