Gynecomastia Best Handled with your Plastic Surgeon

Millions of men struggle with self-confidence issues stemming from “man boobs.” Technically, this condition is called gynecomastia. Although more information is available today, many men feel ashamed of their appearance, and guilty for causing their body to develop in a less-than-masculine way.

Gynecomastia is not your fault!
At Cool Springs Plastic Surgery, it is important to us that men living with gynecomastia understand that it is unlikely that they have done something to cause their condition. It is often assumed that excess breast tissue is the result of excess fat all over the body. The truth is that enlarged male breasts may stem from a number of underlying issues. These may include steroid use (within your control), medication, or hormonal imbalance (NOT in your control).

Promising Solutions Not All They’re Cracked Up To Be
Several pills and creams have been developed to help men minimize the appearance of breasts. Products may claim to be all-natural or almost 100% effective for most patients. They promote promising results within a few months of recommended use, though most have been shown ineffective. This is because the causes of gynecomastia are entrenched in the complex biochemical makeup of the male body.

This is an important issue! Men who attempt to address gynecomastia with pills and creams may feel frustrated and hopeless when they do not see the results they desire as expected. We find this unacceptable due to the overwhelming emotional impact this condition can have on a man.

Get a More Masculine Physique with Gynecomastia Surgery
Cool Springs Plastic Surgery has offices in Franklin, Nashville, and Mount Juliet. In an office conveniently located to you, it is possible to find the hope you need to look forward to a more confident future.

Gynecomastia surgery is customized to address the unique problem at hand. Some men achieve an optimal outcome from liposuction, which gently removes excess fat from beneath the skin. In some cases, glandular tissue in the breast must also be removed to achieve permanent results.

The surgical correction of gynecomastia is an outpatient procedure that is made comfortable with a precise combination of relaxants and pain medication. Scarring is minimal, and post-operative recovery typically occurs over just a few weeks.
