Dr. Kris Reddy FACS: Gynecomastia Expert in West Palm Beach
Pick up any men's health magazine, and you'll see an intense, shirtless man revealing his cut and toned pecs. In our culture, a strong chest is a sign of masculinity. Unfortunately, the majority of men have extra tissue in their chests and no amount of exercise helps them develop defined chest muscles. This condition is called gynecomastia, but it's commonly referred to as "male breasts" or "man boobs."
Dr. Kris Reddy performs male breast reduction to remove excess fat and glandular tissue & to restore a flatter, firmer and more masculine contour to the chest.
Dr. Kris Reddy FACS, West Palm Beach board certified plastic surgeon, is a West Palm Beach Gynecomastia expert. Dr. Reddy has the rare double honor of being a Fellow of American and International College of Surgeons, the only cosmetic surgeon in Palm Beach County, Florida to hold both of these prestigious honors. Dr. Reddy is also a member of the exclusive American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Based on some studies, 1/6 of men have had gynecomastia for their whole lives, and between 60%-80% of all men develop gynecomastia as they age. For more serious cases, Dr. Kris Reddy can improve with male breast reduction. The cause is not always known, but the incidence increases with certain drugs (digitalis, anabolic steroids, Tagamet, and spironolactone), use of marijuana or alcohol, and obesity. This condition can cause extreme embarrassment, social inhibition and self-consciousness for boys and men who suffer from it.
The Basics – West Palm Beach Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Dr. Reddy can tailor your male breast reduction surgical plan to meet your needs and objectives.
The type of procedure used by Dr. Reddy will depend on the degree of breast enlargement. The options include removal of the tissue under the breast, or liposuction of the chest wall. In both instances, a small elliptical incision is made on the lower half of the nipple area (areola). For those men with tissue that is more glandular in nature, all breast tissue directly under the nipple is removed.
If the tissue is more fatty in nature, liposuction can provide excellent results. In some people, ultrasonic assisted liposuction is an excellent approach. During liposuction, a small suction rod (cannula) is inserted into the incision to remove fat and other tissue.
In some cases, a repeat procedure is necessary to remove tissue that was missed during the first procedure. In a few cases, if there is a large amount of extra skin, it may be necessary to remove this tissue, which may result in a scar.
