How Can Gynecomastia Be Corrected?

If you have gynecomastia – a condition where men have excess breast tissue – then it’s likely that you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Perhaps you’ve even tried diet and exercise to get rid of your man boobs, all to no avail. 

But that’s because man boobs are caused by glandular tissue within the chest area – not fat. That means even the most rigorous diet and exercise regimen won’t get rid of gynecomastia. This condition may be caused by a hormonal imbalance, leading to the swelling and growth of the glandular tissue within the breasts.

With that in mind, it may leave you wondering: “How can gynecomastia be corrected?”

Correct Gynecomastia with Plastic Surgery

Gynecomastia surgery is a cosmetic procedure that aims to remove the glandular breast tissue that creates the appearance of man-boobs. This surgery permanently removes the glandular tissue, meaning patients can enjoy the appearance of a  masculine-looking chest without worrying that the breast tissue will return.

Gynecomastia surgery may also include liposuction, which can help remove fat around the glandular tissue, as well as reshape fat to create a masculine chest

Gynecomastia surgery can be a life-changing procedure for men who feel self-conscious about how their chest looks in a tight-fitting shirt or while undressed.

Dr. Vitolo’s Approach to Gynecomastia Surgery

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Vitolo treats male patients with gynecomastia using a modified external ultrasonic liposculpture (EUAL) technique, which allows him to access the glandular tissue through small incisions placed alongside the breasts.

Dr. Vitolo uses specially designed lipo-surgical instruments to remove excess breast tissue. Once the glandular tissue has been removed, he can recontour the breast via liposuction surgery. The only sign of surgical intervention are two insignificant scars on the chest.

Professional and very experienced. Highly recommend Dr Vitolo. Will be going back!
