If you are a man, you might think that only women are unhappy with the size and appearance of their breasts. However, men also suffer from social anxiety and a lack of self-esteem due to enlarged breasts. If you live in Phoenix Arizona and want to show off your physique all year long, having large breasts can be incredibly embarrassing.
Gynecomastia, or engorged male breast tissue, is typically caused by hormonal changes and can affect men of all ages. You may also experience enlarged, sagging breasts after a significant weight loss, or after some medical treatments. Regardless of the cause, once the medical issue is resolved the breast tissue does not always return to its former flat shape.
If you are a man who has worked hard to reduce the size and appearance of your breasts without success, surgery is one of the most popular options. Using a combination of breast reduction surgery and liposuction, Dr. Meger and his staff can help restore your breasts to their normal size.
During the surgery itself, Dr. Meger will make an incision around the nipple and surgically remove all of the excess breast tissue. He may also use liposuction to remove and stubborn pockets of fat around the breasts. Last, he will tighten the skin around each breast to restore your toned, youthful-looking chest.
The recovery time for a Gynecomastia procedure is relatively short, meaning you can often return to work in as little time as a week. Although the swelling from the surgery can last up to three months, you can expect the desired results to start to become visible at that time.
It takes anywhere from 6-12 months for your chest to completely take on its new shape. Although the time frame can seem lengthy, the results are so long-lasting that the weight will be worth it. Provided you maintain a healthy body weight and continue to exercise, most men can expect to enjoy the results of the procedure for the rest of their life.
