In the current generation we are living in, fashion and great looks have become an integral part of our society. In fact, even men who cared less about their looks in the past are now keen about how they look. One of the common issues men face with their image is man boobs.
The disorder medically referred to as Gynecomastia often makes men quite conscious of their general look. Gynecomastia is the development of enlarged female-like breasts in men. And we have the plastic surgeons to help reduce man boobs with our gynecomastia surgery procedures.
The condition can be humiliating and often brings emotional distress to men. The disorder often destroys self-confidence in men, and usually, leads to shying away from activities that may involve removing one’s shirt. The condition is usually as a result of hormonal imbalance. For some men, the condition may go away without medical intervention, while for others it may persist.
For individuals suffering from the condition and it has refused to go away on its own, all is not lost. Cosmetic surgery can help in reversing the development of man boobs and restoring a man’s confidence. Gynecomastia reduction surgery is commonly performed on men who have fully developed breasts. Trained specialists usually undertake the procedure.
Man boobs can either be as a result of pure gynecomastia or pseudo-gynecomastia, and in some cases both. Pure gynecomastia results from enlarged mammary gland tissue and is common in bodybuilders who have used anabolic steroids. Pseudo-gynecomastia, on the other hand, results from the deposition of excess adipose tissue in the breast area. The condition does not pose any serious health issues, thus for those who are comfortable with the condition, treatment is not necessary.
Pure gynecomastia is treated through the surgical removal of the glandular tissue through an incision on the lower part of the areola. After removal of the tissue, the incision is sutured, often resulting in minimal or non-existent scarring. Pseudo-gynecomastia, on the other hand, is treated through liposuction. Both procedures can be performed with local anesthetic only or combined with mild sedation.
Before gynecomastia surgery can be conducted, a thorough medical investigation should be undertaken. The surgery should only be sought from a qualified cosmetic surgeon. These measures ensure the patient’s life is not put at risk, and they get the best possible treatment.
Although gynecomastia is not life threatening, the condition can hinder an individual from undertaking normal activities. Additionally, it can negatively affect an individual’s self-esteem. If this is the case, then the patient should undergo gynecomastia surgery to regain not only their looks but their confidence as well.

I was so pleased with the honesty and concern for my best interest that not only did the Dr. provide but also Rosie. They want you to be completely happy with your results and offer an honest opinion of what procedures will help you obtain that result. The nurses are so friendly and helpful before and after the procedure. I would and will refer Dr. Zavala to my friends and family.
I absolutely love my results!! The nurses took good care of me and questions I had before and after the procedure they answered. Doctor explaining what he was going to do before the procedure step by step and also how I was going to feel after the procedure overall was a good experience. I cant express enough how amazing my results look and how much confidence I have gained.
