Gynecomastia (Male Chest Reduction)

In Englewood

Introduction to Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by the enlargement of breast tissue in males. It can affect one or both breasts and is often a source of self-consciousness or discomfort for men. BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery in Denver, CO offers specialized treatments to address Gynecomastia and restore a more masculine chest appearance.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by the development of enlarged breast tissue in males. It occurs when there is an imbalance in hormones, specifically an increase in estrogen (female hormone) or a decrease in testosterone (male hormone), causing the glandular tissue in the male breast to grow. This can result in the appearance of swollen or enlarged breasts. Gynecomastia can occur at any age and might be caused by various factors such as hormonal changes during puberty, certain medications, health conditions, or genetics. While it’s not typically harmful, it can cause emotional distress or self-consciousness in affected individuals. Treatment options include medications, lifestyle changes, or in some cases, surgical procedures to reduce the size of the breast tissue.

How Does Gynecomastia Surgery Work?

Gynecomastia surgery at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery involves a tailored approach to address the underlying cause of the condition. The process begins with a thorough consultation with Dr. Samir Hasan to understand the patient’s concerns and determine the most suitable treatment plan. Depending on the severity of gynecomastia, various techniques might be employed. In cases where excess glandular tissue and fat need removal, surgery (male breast reduction surgery) is often recommended. Dr. Samir Hasan typically performs this procedure by making small incisions around the areola or in the underarm area. Through these incisions, excess glandular tissue and fat are removed, and in some cases, liposuction might be utilized for better contouring. The incisions are then closed with sutures. Post-surgery, patients receive instructions for recovery, including wearing compression garments and avoiding strenuous activities. Follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor healing and ensure optimal results, aiming to provide a more contoured, masculine chest appearance.
