Gynecomastia: Surgery & Liposuction to Treat Gynecomastia
Many of the most common bodily issues are discussed and understood the least. Gynecomastia is a powerful case in point. A hormonal disorder that causes male breast tissue to grow, gynecomastia affects the vast majority of men at some point during their lives, yet few people fully understand or anticipate this issue. With liposuction and surgery from NOVA Plastic Surgery, you can reverse the effects of gynecomastia no matter how you developed it.

Thus while there is nothing inherently wrong with having this disorder, many men seek treatment to reverse it. NOVA Plastic Surgery is happy to offer treatment to all men dealing with this issue.
Surgical Solutions for Gynecomastia
In seeking to get rid of gynecomastia, many men begin by cutting down on alcohol consumption, changing their diets and exercise routines, and otherwise adjusting their lifestyles to reduce risk factors. If these lifestyle changes are not enough and there is no evidence that the condition is the result of a more serious disease, surgery is the surest way to take out male breast tissue. There are two main types of plastic surgery for this condition:
Both types of gynecomastia treatments are relatively safe if performed by skilled professionals, and our team has extensive training and experience in this area. As with other procedures, however, there are some risks if you are not in good health, have a high risk of infection, or allergies that the anesthetic or surgical tools might set off. You should also be careful about ordering these treatments if you are overweight or have skin with a low level of elasticity. The NOVA team is happy to offer you a comprehensive consultation on these procedures and other treatment options for gynecomastia.
