Male Breast Enlargement is Something to Talk About

As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Ong understands the relationship between a person’s appearance and their sense of confidence. We do not develop self-esteem solely from our appearance. However, feeling good or bad about the way we look translates into our level of self-confidence. Male breast enlargement serves as one of many examples. Men whose breasts are large and soft may engage in numerous strategies to hide their shape. They may wear a compression vest. They may wear loose clothing. They may engage in extreme diet and exercise habits, all to no avail. Gynecomastia can be a tricky problem to beat but, make no mistake, it can be beaten with the right approach. Here, we discuss what that may be.

Understanding Gynecomastia

Male breast enlargement, called gynecomastia, may be somewhat difficult to understand. Many men avoid talking about their concerns. This is a tactic that cannot work because, without proper help, one suffers in silence. Without a compassionate conversation with a medical doctor, a man may assume that it is his fault that his breasts have grown out of proportion. We need to address this common mistake with factual information. True gynecomastia occurs in men who are at their ideal weight. It is a condition that may initially coincide with obesity but that lingers long after weight loss has occurred. The reason is that gynecomastia has additional factors, such as hormones, medications, and genetics, that influence it.

Gynecomastia Correction Surgery

Gynecomastia rarely goes away on its own. It rarely goes away with diet and exercise. Most men with excess breast tissue need surgery. A plastic surgeon makes the process as simple as possible by first engaging in a thorough consultation about the problem. Dr. Ong’s consultation includes an examination of the breasts to determine the best course of treatment. For some, that may involve liposuction. However, it may also be necessary to excise the breast gland. In some cases, it is necessary to trim excess skin that has become loose and saggy. Ultimately, a surgeon develops a treatment plan to restore the natural masculine contours a man desires and deserves.
