Chest Surgery Options for Men
Many men feel self-conscious about their chest, especially as they get older. Often, diet and exercise aren’t enough to address certain concerns, especially when stubborn fat or excess tissue is in the way. With chest surgery for men, Dr. Shaddix offers several different techniques that can redefine your chest, giving you the toned appearance and improved confidence you want. Before scheduling your consultation, it’s good to have a basic understanding of the chest contouring techniques available to you and how they differ from one another.
Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia, a common condition among men, results in enlarged breast tissue. Although the condition is not painful, it can be emotionally bothersome to those suffering with it, causing feelings of self-consciousness. A lot of men experience gynecomastia as they age and have a difficult time contouring their chest despite working out. Dr. Shaddix uses various male breast reduction techniques to address these concerns, helping men to achieve the flat, toned chest they desire.
Male Breast Reduction Techniques
Because gynecomastia can have differing degrees of severity, Dr. Shaddix offers customized options to help patients accomplish their unique goals. One of the most common causes of gynecomastia is stubborn fat. Stubborn fat can be resistant to diet and exercise, making cosmetic surgery an effective solution. Dr. Shaddix makes small incisions in the chest area, using a cannula to break up and remove fat cells. The result is a flatter chest with minimal to no scarring.
Other cases of gynecomastia may be caused by the breast tissue itself becoming enlarged. Dr. Shaddix can make a surgical excision, removing excess breast tissue to create a toned appearance. This is often used for more severe cases of gynecomastia and is often combined with liposuction for optimal improvements.
Building chest muscles can be difficult for some men, especially if excess skin is present. With pectoral implants, Dr. Shaddix can add permanent definition to the chest. Pectoral implants are made of solid silicone and placed under the pectoral muscle to fill out the chest and create a more muscular appearance. Dr. Shaddix may use liposuction techniques at the same time to optimize the chest contour. After pectoral implants, men don’t have to worry about losing muscle mass since their results are permanent.
