Gynecomastia Treatment – Chevy Chase Male Breast Reduction

Men who have overdeveloped breast tissue causing their chests to look more feminine than other men, is actually a much more common condition than you might think. The condition, known as Gynecomastia, often develops during puberty and while 90% outgrow the condition, the remaining 10% will have it for the rest of their lives unless corrected surgically.

Men who have Gynecomastia often feel self-conscious and deal with low self-confidence. Our Plastic Surgeons have helped many men achieve a flatter, more masculine chest and gain a new found confidence through Male Breast Reduction surgery. During the Male Breast Reduction procedure, an incision is made around the lower portion of the areola and the excess glandular tissue is removed. In more extreme cases, excess skin may also be removed or liposuction may be used to excise any excess pockets of fat. The procedure usually takes about an hour and a half.

Mid-Section Improvement – Chevy Chase Abdominoplasty

Both women and men choose to get Tummy Tucks, also called Abdominoplasty, for many reasons. Chief among these reasons are due to weight loss or pregnancy causing excess hanging skin and lose abdominal muscles. Having a concentrated area of fat deposits in the abdomen, causing it to extend out further from the body than is in proportion with the rest of your figure, is another reason people may opt for Abdominoplasty.

In the procedure, a incision will be made, generally along the underwear line. Next, the excess skin and fat is removed and the abdominal muscles are sutured together. As the remaining skin is closed over them it will create a tighter, more toned looking stomach as well as a more defined waistline. Abdominoplasty can often be done in conjunction with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction. Discuss these options with your doctor.
