Chisel Your Chest With Male Breast Reduction in NJ

Yes, male breast reduction. You’ve heard the slang term—man boobs—but the condition deserves more respect. First off, the medical term is gynecomastia, and it applies to men whose breasts are enlarged. Estimates show that 40% to 60% of men suffer from gynecomastia and do nothing about it. Oh, sure, they may avoid taking their shirts off in public. They may avoid going to the beach. But they simply live with the condition, and it can negatively affect their self-esteem. Dr. Aydin performs male breast reduction in New Jersey to correct the situation and give his patients back their confidence.

What Is Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction, is a procedure designed to reduce the size of enlarged breast tissue in men. Dr. Aydin's approach to gynecomastia surgery in NJ typically involves excision of excess glandular tissue, liposuction, or a combination of both, depending on the extent of breast enlargement and the composition of the breast tissue. The goal is to create a flatter, firmer, and more masculine chest contour.

What Causes Gynecomastia?

The causes of adult gynecomastia are not all known. In pubescent boys, where the condition is common (affecting up to 70% of boys to some degree), the cause is estrogen and testosterone and the changes they cause in the body. Teenage gynecomastia usually passes as hormone levels stabilize.

Middle-aged and older men can also have enlarged breasts due to shifts in hormone levels that come with aging. Certain medicines also can cause gynecomastia, including the following:

  • Steroids
  • Antibiotics
  • Anti-anxiety drugs
  • AIDS treatment drugs
  • Tricyclic antidepressants
  • Heartburn treatment drugs

Also, marijuana and heroin use can trigger breast enlargement, as can drinking too much alcohol. Certain herbal products that contain tea tree oil and lavender oil can have the same effect because they contain natural estrogen.

Are You a Candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery?

Candidates for gynecomastia surgery are men who feel self-conscious about their enlarged breasts, a condition known as gynecomastia. Ideal candidates are healthy, at a stable weight, and have tried other treatments without success. 

Men whose breasts have grown as part of weight gain are not candidates for male breast reduction surgery. They must first lose the excess weight and see if the condition persists. Also, heavy drinkers or marijuana smokers are not eligible for the procedure as their breast enlargement is a byproduct of usage.

What to Expect During the Procedure

After your consultation with Dr. Aydin has determined your condition can be addressed with reduction surgery, the surgery itself isn’t that complicated. Small incisions are made in the armpits or around the areolae. Through those incisions, excess skin, fat, and glandular tissue will be removed. Dr. Aydin may use liposuction to suction out any extra fat if necessary.

I think they did a tremendous job, and their facility was exceptionally spotless. I fell in love with the warm-hearted staff, and the professionalism is so far above and beyond their competition; it’s just amazing. You’re gonna love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
