Male Breast Surgery
The development of large breasts in men is known as gynecomastia. Although there are a variety of potential causes for breast development in men, most often the cause is unknown. Men who feel self-conscious about their appearance are helped with breast reduction surgery. The procedure removes fat and glandular tissue from the breast. Rarely in extreme cases excess skin is removed, resulting in a contoured chest that is flatter and firmer. Dr. Pensler has an extensive experience in treating gynecomastia. Dr. Pensler routinely sees patients with gynecomastia from all over the United States and other countries.

Gynecomastia Chicago Illinois - Male Breast Reduction Chicago Illinois

Male breast surgery Chicago, Illinois can be done for both reduction and enlargement.  The most common form of male breast surgery is reduction—removing fatty tissue on the chest.  However, male breast enlargement is also possible.  This does not necessarily imply giving a man false breasts, but a more sculpted and masculine chest area that could possibly not be achieved through diet and exercise. 

After a certain age—usually around thirty years old—it becomes much more difficult to sculpt the body than it used to.  While gynecomastia Chicago, Illinois is performed on men in their twenties, it is older men who have a more difficult time shedding weight and building muscle.  For these men, some type of breast sculpting can be helpful—pectoral implants can turn a flat chest into a muscular chest. 

Exercise can actually sometimes work against you.  If you have been overweight and suddenly lost a lot of weight, the skin around the chest can be loose and make the chest look more feminine.  Even if you have maintained a normal weight, breast tissue can expand while other parts of the body stay the same.  In either case, male breast surgery Chicago, Illinois can fix the problem.  Male breast reduction surgery Chicago, Illinois will remove fatty tissue, glandular tissue, and skin from the area, giving you a more natural, and masculine, appearance. 

Most times, gynecomastia surgery Chicago, Illinois can be done on an outpatient basis—the patient can go home the same day the surgery was performed.  However, in certain cases it may require a one or two night stay in the hospital.  After surgery, patients will wear a tight bandage around the chest to facilitate healing and reduce swelling.  Pain generally goes away after two weeks.  There will be some scarring but these fade with time as well. 

An incision will be made around the nipple or under the arm—depending on the size of the problem.  For larger operations, male breast reduction Chicago, Illinois may be combined with liposuction.  If so, this will extend the recovery time as well as the cost.  Be sure to discuss with your doctor everything that the surgery will entail—including recovery, potential scarring, and resulting body shape.
