Male Breast Reduction
It can be tough to live the life you want when you feel self-conscious about your body. Body issues can affect the way you feel about yourself, how you carry yourself and the image you project to others. This affects men just as much as women, although men may not be as comfortable sharing their insecurities.
One very common concern for men is excess fat and breast tissue that can result in an actual deformity of the chest area, sometimes resulting in a feminine-looking chest. Dr. Rose has helped numerous men to achieve the toned, firm chest that they want through male breast reduction at his Provo and Salt Lake City area practice.
About Male Breast Reduction
Many men have gynecomastia, or enlarged breasts. For most of these men, no amount of dieting or exercise will significantly improve the appearance of the chest. Having a less-than-masculine chest can limit your clothing choices and keep you from participating in activities such as swimming or running. Dr. Rose performs male breast reduction for Utah men who want:
- A firmer, flatter, more masculine looking chest
- Improved appearance both in and out of clothing
- Increased confidence and a more active lifestyle
In most men, enlarged breasts are a result of excess fatty tissue and breast glandular tissue. In some cases, liposuction near Salt Lake City can provide all the reduction and shape that is needed. This involves inserting a small tube, called a cannula, to suction out the excess fat and decrease the size of the breasts or chest.
When a greater degree of reduction is required, or when there is more sagging skin, surgical removal may be a better option. In this case, a small incision is made, usually around the nipple, through which the excess tissue, fat, and skin is removed. Liposuction may be incorporated into this procedure as well, which results in a tighter, flatter, more toned looking chest.
Dr. Rose performs male breast reduction as an outpatient procedure at his on-site surgery center.
