If you suffer from over-developed male breast tissue, otherwise known as “man-boobs,” you may have gynecomastia.
What is Gynecomastia?
What is gynecomastia? It is the over-development of male breast tissue which is a mixture of fatty tissue as well as normal glandular tissue. This condition currently affects about one-third of the male population (about 50% will experience it at some stage of their life) and is generally sparked during adolescence and after the age of 50.
Men with gynecomastia often suffer from demoralizing emotional and social trauma that can greatly interfere with the social, personal, and professional aspects of their life.
Causes of Gynecomastia
There are a number of causes for gynecomastia including anabolic steroids, obesity, aging or prescription-drug induced hormonal imbalances. Most commonly, however, the cause of a man’s gynecomastia can be identified with blood tests to determine what is causing the imbalance.
Men who are affected with this condition may think that they are the only ones in the world with gynecomastia. Since about half of all men will experience this condition at some point in their lives, it isn’t a surprise that some celebrities may have dealt with gynecomastia.
Celebrities with Gynecomastia
John Travolta, Ice T, David Hasselhoff, and Jack Black are only a few of the famous men who are known or suspected of having gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is also known to affect many body builders and even WWF wrestlers. You are by no means alone in your battle with this embarrassing condition.
While many companies swear that their magic pills, creams, exercises or ointments can treat gynecomastia, the only way to completely get rid of man boobs is through surgery.
Our doctors offer exceptional gynecomastia surgery that will fit into your price budget. The surgery does not require general anesthesia and will leave virtually no scarring on your body, giving you a natural look.
During the procedure, our surgeon insert a tiny laser fiber into the area of unwanted fat. The fat is then suctioned out through a narrow cannula (tube), providing your body with sexy new contours.
After the procedure, there is very minimal downtime so you can get back to your life (we recommend allowing a weekend of recovery time)!
