Approximately one-half of all men in the United States suffer from gynecomastia, a medical condition in which localized fat and/or excess tissue builds up in the male breast. Gynecomastia has no known cause and can lead males to feel insecure about their appearance. To treat males' concerns with their chests, Dr. Gardner is one of the few Naples male breast reduction surgeons offering treatment for gynecomastia.
Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction, is a breast enhancement procedure designed to remove and reshape a man's breast tissue to help him achieve a more toned chest. Following the procedure, men often achieve the slimmer physiques they desire along with higher levels of confidence.
Before gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Gardner will meet with Naples gynecomastia patients to understand their ideal outcomes for the procedure. Then, he will devise a customized treatment approach to help patients reach those ideals.
The procedure is started with a small incision in the nipple or underarm area, followed by extraction of excess tissue, fat and skin. In many instances, Dr. Gardner may perform liposuction to remove stubborn fatty deposits from the chest. Once excess tissues have been removed, Dr. Gardner reshapes the breast tissue to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing chest.
Males undergo gynecomastia surgery on an outpatient basis, allowing them to recover within the comfort of their own homes. Following the procedure, Naples male breast reduction patients typically need one to two weeks of rest before returning to their daily activities. Dr. Gardner may recommend patients wear a compression garment to assist the healing process and help chests retain the desired position. While male breast reduction does not treat the underlying cause of gynecomastia, it is highly successful at improving the appearance of the condition and helping men regain their self-esteem.
Like all surgical procedures, male breast reduction may have a risk of complications; however, gynecomastia Naples patients often feel at ease once reviewing Dr. Gardner's outstanding surgical record and feel confident they are in good hands.
