Breast Reduction For Men in Winnipeg, MB
Male breast development aka Gynecomastia is a fairly common condition in males and generally occurs during the teenage years or later in the senior ages of life.
It can develop from the production of male breast tissue or simply be fatty in nature. It can be caused by a number of factors such as hormonal change, weight fluctuations, genetics, prescription medications, marijuana or steroids. Often, enlarged male breasts can cause social and emotional anxiety or discomfort. Due to this, some males avoid physical activities or even intimacy. Fortunately, there is an aesthetic surgery that can help.
Male chest reduction surgery is performed under general anesthetic in 1 to 2 hours. During the surgery, Liposuction to the chest is performed first to remove the fatty component of the “breast”. Following liposuction, if breast tissue is present an incision is made along the lower border of the areola (darker pigment around the nipple) to allow removal of the rubbery glandular tissue. This procedure is often combined with BodyTite to provide tightening to the skin of the chest to maximize results. Rarely further skin removal is required through larger scars; however, as much as possible Dr. Islur will attempt to tighten the skin through minimally invasive/less scarring techniques.
Very rarely, breast tissue alone is present and liposuction is not required.
Your surgery will be custom tailored to your unique needs, individual results may vary.
Your procedure will take place at Dr. Avi Islur’s state of the art cosmetic surgery centre, The First Glance Aesthetic Clinic & Surgery Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
