If you’re a man with excess breast tissue, you might be avoiding the type of activities that most people take for granted. Stepping out the door for a run, pulling on a favorite t-shirt, getting sun at the beach, or being close to others: men with gynecomastia often feel hesitation or anxiety about some of the best experiences in life.
Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center performs gynecomastia surgery for Riverside County patients who are ready to live life on their terms. This very common procedure permanently resolves the condition and has a short recovery time. As a result of surgery, you can expect to have a more sculpted chest, a flatter body contour, and more confidence in the way you look.
Understanding Gynecomastia and Gynecomastia Surgery
All males develop some amount of excess tissue when they go through puberty. Generally, this tissue goes away by the time men enter their late teens and twenties. For some people, however, the tissue stays around into late adulthood. Other factors can cause excess breast tissue to develop, including natural hormone changes and certain drugs, medications, and health conditions.
The gynecomastia surgery Renuance conducts for Riverside County patients is a relatively straightforward procedure. Your surgeon will:
- Make a small incision around the areola.
- Remove the excess tissue.
- Shape and suture the area.
The tissue that your surgeon removes will be gone permanently and should not come back even with weight gain. Signs of surgery should be well hidden after your recovery.
Exploring Gynecomastia Surgery with Renuance
Renuance provides Riverside County men with a private and professional setting to learn about surgical procedures. We understand that gynecomastia can be a difficult topic to discuss for some patients, and we make the experience as straightforward and discrete as possible.
You will start with a telephone consultation, during which we can give you information about how treatment works, what you can expect in our care, and the type of results that gynecomastia surgery can provide. This is a great way to explore the decision without commitment.
Next, you’ll visit with your Renuance surgeon to talk about the results you’d like to achieve. Many of our patients want to know exactly how much tissue gynecomastia surgery can remove, and a physical examination will help your surgeon set your expectations about the improvement you’ll get.
Renuance encourages you to take time during your consultation and to ask any questions you may have. We want you to feel completely comfortable with your decision. When you decide that you’re ready, you can schedule your procedure.
