Women aren't the only ones who feel uncomfortable when beach season begins to loom. If you suffer from gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts), you may be very reluctant to remove your shirt at the beach, in the gym, or elsewhere. Chances are, you've worked hard to get rid of the breasts, but with no success. You may have lost weight from everywhere else on your body, but the stubborn breasts hold on. And chest exercises may just make the problem worse by building up muscles that make your breasts look even bigger.
The treatment for gynecomastia varies depending on its presentation. Often the treatment only entails liposuction which is simpler and accompanied by a more rapid recovery. At other times actual cutting of breast tissue, or subcutaneous mastectomy is also needed. But even in this situation most patients can return to non-strenuous work in 4-7 days. Sometimes breast lifting and/or reducing the size of the areola may be necessary.
This is performed by making an incision around the areola, there keeping the scar as minimal as possible. You will wear a compression garment to help your chest heal smoothly over your pecs to give you the masculine chest you desire. For many plastic surgery practices, treating men is an afterthought, but Dr. Lefkovits has long made cosmetic treatments and plastic surgery for men a priority. He has consultation hours confined to "men only” so as to create a fraternity-like setting in the waiting room, thereby, making it more comfortable for men seeking consultation. Don't let your breasts keep you from enjoying the beach or gym. Get rid of them and show off your chest proudly.
