Gynecomastia is the medical word used for male breast enlargement. It is a condition that can result in a female-like chest due to the abnormal growth of breast tissue. In many cases, gynecomastia is caused by an underlying hormonal condition. This condition can also be caused by certain drugs, steroids, major weight gain or loss, or genetics. Men with this issue generally feel embarrassed, more so in circumstances where the chest area is shown, such as by the pool or in the gym. Port St. Lucie, FL plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee offers cosmetic breast treatment for men who have gynecomastia. This cosmetic treatment has a very high success rate. It is one of the more popular cosmetic surgeries for men at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center.
Gynecomastia surgery is a procedure for men with visible excess breast tissue that cannot be corrected with diet and exercise. If you are embarrassed by the look of your chest (but are at a good weight), you may benefit from this surgery by Dr. Lee at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center. Male teens may also benefit from gynecomastia surgery; however, a future procedure may be necessary later during adulthood if new breast tissue continues to grow. During your first appointment with Dr. Lee, treatment options will be presented and may include the likelihood of having surgery to repair the condition.

"I had surgery this morning, (August 02) to remove some basal cell skin cancer with Dr. Lee of Lee Plastic Surgery & Laser Center. It was very easy with the whole procedure. Dr. Lee put me at ease and explained everything to alleviate any concerns I had. His staff and those at Blue Water Surgical Center were friendly and professional. I was referred to Dr. Lee by the Martin Memorial Wound Care Center and they were spot on, the very best. I've had negligible pain and have needed no pain reliever. I hardily recommend Dr. Lee and Blue Water without reservation."- M.B. / Facebook / Aug 02, 2018

Fat removal is usually utilized during gynecomastia surgery. Performed under general anesthesia, liposuction removes excess fat from the chest wall. Next, any loose or wrinkled skin will be excised to create a tighter appearance, and then the nipple will be placed into a more correct position. In most cases, this technique requires a small incision near where the glandular tissue resides. Once the fat and loose skin have been addressed, Dr. Lee will tighten the existing skin.
What To Expect
After your gynecomastia treatment, the chest will be wrapped with a medical garment to help minimize swelling. In advanced cases where a more invasive technique was used, a drainage tube may be inserted to assist with fluid. The results following gynecomastia treatment are immediately seen and most patients are extremely pleased with the physical change. The incisions made during this procedure take a few weeks to heal and scarring is usually barely visible. With your enhanced chest, you can get clearance from Dr. Lee to continue exercise and strength training, which will assist in complementing the final outcome.
