Male Breast Reduction
Although enlarged breast tissue in males is a common condition, it can become a source of embarrassment. This condition is called gynecomastia and is the result of a hormone imbalance (too little testosterone or too much estrogen) in the body.
Hormone imbalance that can cause gynecomastia include:
- Steroid use
- Certain health conditions
Enlarged breast tissue can be corrected with a breast reduction procedure. Sometimes, liposuction is enough to correct the issue. Other treatments include the removal of fat, glandular tissue, and excess skin to reshape the chest into a flatter and more sculpted appearance.
Males who desire a more prominent chest may benefit from pectoral implants. Made of silicone, pectoral implants augment the natural contours of the chest. They can also used to correct congenital deformities that result in underdeveloped chest muscle, such as Poland syndrome.
When you come to Carolinas Center for Cosmetic Surgery, your doctor will evaluate your condition, review your medical history, take any X-rays or 3D imaging, and listen to your cosmetic goals to create the right treatment plan for you. Considerations such as the size of the implant and type of anesthesia will also be discussed.
To place a pectoral implant, your surgeon will create an incision in the armpit for the implant to slide through. They will then place the implant under the pectoral muscle and make sure the implant is in the right place before suturing the incision closed.
