You’re not sure when it happened. One day, you looked at yourself and noticed a serious change in your body. Your breasts have grown to a size that can’t be ignored. You’re not sure why it happened. It could be your hormone levels are out of control. It could be a part of getting older. You could be suffering from effects brought on hormone therapy. The issue could be an accumulation of fat. However, true gynecomastia means you have excess breast tissue. Luckily, there are treatment options available.
What Can You Do About Gynecomastia?
The best way to find a solution for your excessively large breasts is to sit down with our doctor. In some cases, medication can help to reduce the size of your breasts. If medication and hormone treatments don’t help, surgery may be the only alternative to help you to have a flat chest once again.
What Surgical Options Can Help You with Gynecomastia?
After a personal consultation with our plastic surgeon, you will be able to have a treatment plan that is designed to fit you. If you have true gynecomastia, our surgeon can go in and remove glandular tissue from your breasts. Fat may be removed as well until you have a chest that is flat.
Once you have had surgery to correct your gynecomastia, you are going to need to give your body a chance to heal. That means being careful with how much activity you do. However, once you have fully recovered, you can really enjoy the flatter, more masculine chest that the surgery provided for you.
