What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia, also known as “man boobs”, is a common condition resulting in the enlargement of a man’s chest, often times resulting in feminine-looking breasts.
Is Gynecomastia life threatening?
There are several risk factors, but there is usually an underlying hormonal imbalance. Most often it is evident at puberty, but sometimes stays with men into adulthood. While gynecomastia is not a serious problem, it may be tough to cope with the condition.
How is Gynecomastia treated?
Thankfully, Dr. Rajendra Shah and Dr. Samir Shah are both skilled at removing fat and glandular tissue and will help you create a squarer, masculine-appearing chest. The procedure helps men feel more confident wearing shirts or even exposing their chest at the pool or gym.
The first step is to set up a consultation with Dr. Shah. He will review your concerns, medical history, and determine the surgical plan. The procedure can be done under sedation or general anesthesia and often times combined with abdominal liposuction. The procedure lasts 1-2 hours. Patients have to wear a compression vest for 6 weeks. Most patients need about a week for recovery.
