Breast tissue on a man should look very different than it does on a woman. There are men, however, for whom “man boobs” are a very real problem. Scientifically, this concern, in which extra fatty or glandular tissue expands the male breast, is called gynecomastia. On a physical level, there is little concern about extra breast tissue on the male body. Psychologically, however, a man with “breasts” can suffer great emotional distress. Men may attempt to wear clothing that pulls in the chest or hides this part of the body. Regardless of age, a man is likely to suffer from lack of confidence due to his physique.

Why do some men get man boobs?

There are several reasons excess breast tissue may develop in some men. Usually, this problem is linked to fluctuating hormones. However, there are other attributing factors to gynecomastia, such as drug use, the use of anabolic steroids, some types of prescriptions medications, and, rarely, a medical condition. As a part of treatment, a thorough consultation, examination, and health history will be performed to help identify the cause of gynecomastia.

Restructuring the male physique with gynecomastia surgery in Franklin, TN

Today, skilled surgeons are helping men address the problem of gynecomastia with a minimally invasive breast reduction procedure. Male breast reduction with your reputable Franklin surgeon, Dr. Bengelsdorf, is an outpatient procedure performed in a safe environment.

One of the best ways to lessen excess fatty tissue from the male breast is with tumescent liposuction. The tumescent fluid helps prevent infection and blood loss by causing the constriction of blood vessels. Once fat cells have swelled, they are easily removed with the gentle suction of a small cannula. If gynecomastia also includes excess glandular tissue beneath the nipples, this tissue may be surgically excised with a very small incision.

Dr. Steven Bengelsdorf has been performing conventional and laser surgeries for nearly two decades. His dedication to excellence means you’re in good hands when you visit Franklin Skin & Laser near Nashville.

Stop hiding your body and start feeling more confident. Call our office at (615) 595-8177 today for your consultation for male breast reduction.
