Boosting Confidence in Men with Gynecomastia
Gynecomastia is a common medical condition where men have excessive breast tissue, commonly known as “man boobs”, and is caused by hormone imbalances, medications, or various medical conditions. Men with gynecomastia don’t necessarily have to be overweight to experience this condition and it may be passed through genetics.
Most men and young boys unfortunately develop this issue while in school, which may lead to teasing, physical and emotional discomfort with their self-image. Fortunately, Dr. Shienbaum, a double board-certified plastic surgeon practicing in the Brandon, Riverview Lakeland and Tampa , areas educates his patients on gynecomastia and offers treatments for those afflicted by this condition.
Gynecomastia treatment, also known as male breast reduction, offers various surgical techniques to correct gynecomastia and restore a masculine chest contour. Before the surgical procedure, an initial consultation is necessary to craft a treatment plan tailored to each patient’s unique condition. Based on the consult and the severity of the excess breast tissue and skin, Dr. Shienbaum will perform a unique procedure, not a standard procedure.
Male breast reduction may include liposuction techniques, including VASER Ultrasound, to smooth and reshape a more natural chest contour. It is a very straightforward and successful procedure, and most Florida patients, return home the same day of surgery. Another reason why men turn to male breast reduction is because the recovery period is short, and most men can return to work within 3 to 5 days.

Male breast reduction has a very high patient satisfaction rate, offering a form of happiness for men who didn’t know this solution existed.
