Breast reduction surgery is designed to help alleviate physical and mental discomfort associated with excessively large breasts. Disproportionately large breasts can lead to neck and back pain, cause embarrassment, and limit physical activity. Generally, patients who undergo breast reduction at our practice are extremely satisfied with the results of this breast enhancement procedure.
Breast reduction methods vary according to the needs of each patient. In general, the surgeon makes an anchor shaped incision around the nipple and underneath the breast, and then removes excess skin and tissue to reduce breast size. Once the necessary skin, fat, and breast tissue is removed, the incision can be closed. The procedure generally results in a small vertical scar underneath the breast.
Breast reduction encompasses a few different techniques, and Dr. Salzhauer can help determine the best one for you during your initial breast enhancement consultation at our practice.
Gynecomastia Treatment/Male Breast Reduction
The development of feminine breast tissue in men is not uncommon. It can be caused by genetics, fluctuations in weight, or hormonal changes from medication or steroids.
Unfortunately, gynecomastia does not go away on its own, but surgical methods for removing the tissue are very safe, simple, and effective.
In most cases, localized liposuction is all that is needed to remove the excess breast tissue. In some cases Dr. Salzhauer may also remove some extra skin if liposuction alone is insufficient.
During male breast reduction surgery with liposuction, small incisions are made in the skin and a hollow metal tube called a cannula is used to suction out fatty tissue. In cases where excess glandular tissue is the cause of the breast enlargement, this tissue will be removed with a scalpel.
In either case, Dr. Salzhauer will make the incisions as discreet as possible to minimize scarring.
