Typically, breast procedures are associated with women wanting a more feminine physique. For a number of reasons, men facing the constant, intense shame of gynecomastia have historically avoided talking about their condition. Today, a very precise breast procedure can help men with “man boobs” reclaim their confidence and sense of self.
Enlarged Breasts? It’s Not Your Fault!
Breast enlargement in men is often thought a problem of excess fat. While there is an overabundance of tissue in the enlarged male breast, true gynecomastia is more complex than being overweight. Men with gynecomastia are encouraged to attain a healthy weight. However, the idea that diet and exercise can solve the issue of enlarged male breasts is just not accurate. Such an idea places the blame squarely onto a man’s shoulders. When attempts to exercise breasts away fail, a man can become deeply depressed and hopeless to find a solution.
Dr. Ryan Frank offers men in the Calgary area hope. In our office, patients have a friendly and discreet atmosphere in which they can discuss gynecomastia with an experienced physician.
What is Male Breast Reduction?
Male breast reduction surgery, or gynecomastia surgery, may consist of one procedure or two. When the primary issue is excess fatty tissue in the breast, optimal results may be achieved with liposuction. Sometimes, enlarged breasts are the result of excess fat and glandular tissue. Breast glands may be removed with surgical excision. The precision techniques with which male breast reduction is performed optimize the final outcome while also minimizing post-operative discomfort. Most men are able to resume some of their normal activities within a week or two after surgery. The procedure leaves only minimal scarring in most cases.
