Chicago Male Breast Reduction – Gynecomastia Chicago
There are a staggering number of men that suffer from gynecomastia, a condition that causes the over development of breast tissue. This condition can appear during adolescence and cause young men to become increasingly self conscious. Chicago board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Otto Placik treats men young and old suffering from gynecomastia with a surgical procedure called male breast reduction.
During male breast reduction, Dr. Placik will remove fat and/or glandular tissue from the breasts as need. In some extreme cases the surgeon may removes excess skin. In most cases, liposuction is used to remove the excess fat. If needed, the areolas can be reduced in size as well. The results is a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured.
Male breast reduction is not only physically changing but emotionally changing as well. Patients who suffer from gynecomastia are often very self conscious. Many young men avoid social gathering that may include taking off their shirt such as going to the beach. Male breast reduction can not only improve the physical appearance but also the emotional well being of the man.
