What is Involved in Gynecomastia Surgery?
Enlarged male breasts (called gynecomastia) affects many men. According to the Mayo Clinic, gynecomastia caused by hormone changes during puberty is relatively common. In addition, the prevalence of gynecomastia peaks again between the ages of 50 and 80. At least one in four men are affected during this time. If you have had a history of cancer, liver disorders, or the use of certain drugs (anabolic steroids, alcohol, estrogen medications, etc.), these factors can contribute to gynecomastia. It’s possible, however, you are one of the many men that board certified Fayetteville plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis treats who suffer from enlarged male breasts with an unknown cause.
If you are interested in a male breast reduction procedure, we encourage you to consult Dr. Contogiannis at the Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness in Fayetteville. Through gynecomastia treatment, Dr. Contogiannis shapes a flatter, firmer, more contoured chest.
During a private consultation, your gynecomastia treatment procedure goals will be discussed realistically with Fayetteville board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis. Together, you will decide which procedures she will perform to achieve your desired results.
