Regardless of age, men who struggle with gynecomastia (male breasts) often feel self-conscious and embarrassed about their physical appearance. However, if you are a man who struggles with gynecomastia, male breast reduction can help you get rid of those unsightly “man boobs” so that you can achieve the chest appearance you’ve always wanted.

What Is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is ultimately caused by excess fat and enlarged breast tissue in males. Often, it is the result of a hormonal imbalance, where the body produces more estrogen than testosterone. This hormonal imbalance can be caused by natural changes in hormone levels (as often happens with males as they go through puberty) as well as the use of drugs, marijuana, and some medications. 

One of the most frustrating aspects of gynecomastia is that there is often no natural way to address this condition. Instead, plastic surgery is the only way. Fortunately, having your gynecomastia correction surgery performed by a trusted plastic surgeon like Dr. Hung can give you results that you can feel proud of.

What Are the Benefits of Gynecomastia Surgery?

In a recent study published in the World Journal of Plastic Surgery, it was found that nine of out 10 men expressed satisfaction with their gynecomastia surgery and results. The success of this cosmetic procedure is due in large part to the fact that gynecomastia surgery improved men both physically and psychologically. 

Here are some of the ways that gynecomastia correction surgery can help you.

More Masculine Physique

One of society’s qualifications for a masculine body is a defined chest, and the reality is that gynecomastia keeps chest definition from being visible. However, with gynecomastia surgery, the excess fat is removed from the chest using liposuction surgery and the unneeded breast tissue is surgically removed. 

This allows for a more contoured chest appearance that can help you feel stronger and more masculine.

Improved Confidence

Many men with gynecomastia find that they have limited self-esteem and confidence. This condition can cause men to refrain from participating in many of their favorite activities (like swimming and trips to the beach) and can even negatively affect their dating life. However, by getting rid of their more feminine-looking chest, men can find themselves with increased confidence and comfort in their body’s appearance. 

In fact, many men can’t wait to get out and show off their dramatic results.

Limited Visible Scarring

Men and women who undergo cosmetic procedures often worry about the resulting scar from the procedure. That is because any invasive surgery (like gynecomastia correction surgery) requires incisions to be made in the skin, which ultimately causes scars. However, one of the greatest benefits for men undergoing gynecomastia with Dr. Hung is that scars are minimized and kept as inconspicuous as possible. 

Dr. Hung uses a periareolar incision, which means that the incision is made in the lower half of the areola, below the nipple. While there will be a scar, it will not be noticeable, which means that people will not be able to tell that you even had cosmetic surgery.

Why Should You Trust Dr. Hung With Your Gynecomastia Surgery?

It is so important that you trust your plastic surgery to a cosmetic surgeon who is trained, knowledgeable, skilled, and successful. That is because you are trusting your health and the appearance of your body to that doctor. 

Dr. Hung is triple-board certified in Internal Medicine, Dermatology, and Plastic Surgery. This is an amazing feat, especially when you consider that there are only a handful of doctors in the world with these credentials. This means that you can look forward to achieving the results you truly want after your procedure with Dr. Hung.
