Gynecomastia is a condition in which excess fat or glandular tissue produces the appearance of breasts in men. Often occurring during adolescence, many instances of gynecomastia self-correct as hormone levels regulate. Others may respond positively to dietary changes and increased exercise.

Some instances, however, will fail to go away without assistance.

Male breast reduction is a safe and effective method of dealing with gynecomastia. With this option, excess fat and tissue are gently eliminated from the chest, allowing underlying musculature to become more apparent. Once sculpting has been completed, results should last for a lifetime.

Take Care of Yourself

The only reliable way to maintain any body contouring result is through personal effort. This means committing to a healthy diet and making sure to get plenty of exercise. Male breast reduction results are permanent only in that removed fat cannot come back. New fat accumulations can occur, however, if care isn’t taken to avoid them.

Eating healthy and getting enough exercise will help to ensure your male breast reduction results are long-lasting. Weight training and similar muscle-building activities can help to enhance and improve results. Which direction you take is dependent on your goals, but male breast reduction is the first step in both. Give us a call today to schedule a consultation and learn more.

June is Men’s Health Month

June is Men’s Health Month. This is a great time to come to our office and discuss your various aesthetic goals. Popular cosmetic options for men include things like abdominoplasty and liposuction to sculpt and tone the frame, along with eyelid surgery, forehead lift, and facelift to address deep creases and other advanced signs of aging. Less obvious signs of aging can be dealt with through non-surgical facial rejuvenation with injectables and fillers, both of which can produce results on their own or serve to complement and improve surgical outcomes.

If you have been considering a cosmetic procedure, now is a great time to act. Call South Tulsa Plastic Surgery at 918-518-5144 to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brenda Schiesel and learn how we can help you reach your goals.
