Gynecomastia is a condition in which the male breasts are larger than usual. This condition can leave men feeling self-conscious and anxious about their appearance. Fortunately, Philadelphia gynecomastia surgeon Dr. David A. Bottger has years of experience treating this condition and can help you feel more confident in your appearance.
Gynecomastia often starts in adolescence and can continue to develop into adulthood. While the cause is generally unknown, some risk factors include weight gain, marijuana use, steroid use, and hormonal imbalances.
Gynecomastia surgery is a relatively straightforward cosmetic procedure to remove fat and glandular tissue from the male chest to deliver a more masculine appearance. Every case is unique, but good candidates for this procedure usually
- Are emotionally stable.
- Do not suffer from other major medical conditions.
- Have realistic expectations and clear goals.
- Have firm, toned skin that will retract after surgery.
- Do not use steroids or marijuana.
Most patients can return to normal within about three weeks, and the final results are usually evident within three months.
Gynecomastia can affect the way you feel about yourself, but this condition is easily corrected with today’s cosmetic surgery options.
