Tucson Gynecomastia Surgery
A More Contoured Chest
Gynecomastia is a benign condition that results in overdeveloped breasts in men. It can occur at any any age and can be caused by factors such as hormones, obesity, drug use, and genetics.
At Hurst Plastic Surgery, in Tucson, Dr. Craig Hurst has fellowship training and over 14 years of experience in plastic surgery. He offers gynecomastia surgery for men with this condition in order to achieve a more contoured chest that is in proportion with the rest of the body.
40-50% of men are affected by gynecomastia at some point in time during their lifetime. However, the condition may not be severe enough to warrant surgery. When adolescent boys experience gynecomastia, symptoms usually disappear for the vast majority within two years. In a minority of cases, however, the condition persists and becomes a source of embarrassment and self-consciousness. Surgery is a viable option under these circumstances.
Gynecomastia surgery, also called reduction mammoplasty, corrects the sagging or stretched appearance of the breasts and areola in severe cases. It consists of repositioning and or resizing the areola and tightening the overlying skin. Dr. Hurst and his staff meet with you for a complimentary consultation to discuss aesthetic concerns regarding your chest. Gynecomastia surgery benefits men who wish to improve the shape of their chest.
- Healthy men.
- Realistic expectations.
- Stabile breast development.
- Non-smokers and non-drug users.
Dr. Hurst may recommend liposuction in conjunction with gynecomastia surgery in order to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing outcome.
