With warmer weather, our focus shifts to outdoor activities, bathing suits and bodies. It’s easy to assume women are considering how to improve the contours of their bodies but men do, as well. Especially men and boys who are self conscious about enlarged breast tissue, also known as Gynecomastia. Persistent breast enlargement can negatively impact self-esteem and emotional health, especially in adolescent boys.
Gynecomastia is an enlargement of breast tissue in boys and men and often a result of estrogen hormone imbalance. The male breast glands grow, resulting in firm tissue around the nipple that can feel tender. Losing weight will not usually correct the problem if there is true glandular enlargement. Sadly, body shaming for boys and men is real and does occur in the locker room, school, and at work.
Fortunately, Gynecomastia can often be corrected with liposuction performed as an out-patient procedure. This is the optimal choice instead of traditional surgical methods that result in scarring when removing breast glands. At the Bensimon Center, Dr. Richard Bensimon has developed the Bensimon Micro Sculptor™ liposuction cannula intended for use in the treatment of Gynecomastia. This refined cannula allows for precise contouring without leaving marks on the skin and allowing for faster recovery times.
