Having “man boobs” is one of the most difficult experiences for a man, and it can greatly affect his self-esteem and masculinity. The problem may not be diet and exercise, but rather the medical condition gynecomastia. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Obi, works with men in Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach and surrounding areas of Florida, who have gynecomastia and want options for a more masculine chest.
What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a medical condition that causes enlargement of breasts on men. No treatment exists for the condition, and working out will not tone the area. The only option for men is to surgically remove the excess fat and breast tissue.
What are the Benefits of Gynecomastia Surgery?
Male breast reduction restores the chest area to a masculine appearance. It is the only way men can address the cosmetic issues caused by gynecomastia.
What Happens During Gynecomastia Surgery?
Over-development of the male breast area may result from several causes. When the over-development presents as primarily fatty tissue and excessive skin is not present, liposuction alone may achieve the desired result. An excision may be required on gynecomastia patients whose breast enlargement is made up of mostly glandular tissue rather than fat. If there is excessive skin in the breast area, a skin excision procedure will be necessary.
What is the Downtime After Gynecomastia Surgery?
You will be sore for a few days after gynecomastia surgery, but you can return to work after seven to 10 days. The healing process takes several months, and Dr. Obi will explain how to gradually return to normal activities without jeopardizing your recuperation period.
How Much Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost in Jacksonville?
Gynecomastia is a relatively affordable procedure that helps you feel better about your body. Jacksonville Plastic Surgery offers several payment options to help make the cost more manageable. You may even qualify for financing through CareCredit®, Prosper Healthcare Lending and GreenSky™.
