If you’re a man that has experienced breast growth, you know how embarrassed and self-conscious it can make you feel when it’s time to go to the pool or hang out on the lake with friends. Gynecomastia — or male breast growth — can have a number of causes and affect men of all ages, including teens.
From medications and weight gain to recreational drug use and tumors, there isn’t always one obvious source for the problem.
Fortunately, there is an easy solution. Male breast reduction is a life changing procedure that can give men the comfort of fitting into social settings without having to hide under bulky or loose clothing.
Dr. Spence helps gynecomastia sufferers through different types of treatments, depending on the extent of male breast growth and their individual medical needs.
Sometimes, liposuction is the best solution. After reducing the fatty deposits, a compression garment is worn and the patient can return to work or school 2-3 days later. If we perform the treatment on a Thursday or Friday, only 1-2 days will need to be taken off.
In other situations, more extensive fat removal is necessary. If this is the case, Dr. Spence will use a minimally invasive measure that allows you to have a less-noticeable and well-placed scar to minimize the appearance of having breast reduction surgery. That way, it’s possible to go without a shirt in social settings, yet be inconspicuous about having had a medical procedure completed.
If you’re a man that has experienced the uncomfortable social stigma of having large breasts, Dr. Spence can provide you with fast answers and address your concerns in a private and professional manner. Call our Orlando practice today to schedule an appointment.
