Treat Gynecomastia with Male Breast Reduction Surgery


We tend to look at aging with a sense of dread and recognize that as we age, there are things each of us will face that are unpleasant, yet unavoidable byproducts of getting older. These things vary from person to person and we tend to chalk them up as “inevitables.” While this may be true about many physical and cosmetic problems, it isn’t true across the board.

One of these supposed “inevitables” for men is enlarged breast tissue, often insensitively referred to as “man boobs.” Medically, this condition, known as Gynecomastia, is very common among men, affecting between 40 and 60 percent of the male population. Contrary to popular understanding, it isn’t simply a matter of aging or something indicative of a lack of exercise or physical fitness. Men of all ages struggle with enlarged breast tissue and the subsequent embarrassment, emotional distress, low self-esteem and avoidance of intimacy that often come with it.

Many men reading this right now are facing this and have talked themselves into believing that it’s something with which they have to live with. Although there can be comedic approaches to the issue, for men struggling with excess breast tissue, it’s no laughing matter.

The causes of Gynecomastia can range from a genetic predisposition to it the side effect of a drug, disease, or hormonal change. Understanding the root cause isn’t only important for men struggling with it, it’s also important because it provides a means of treating it effectively through breast reduction surgery uniquely tailored to each individual man with the condition.

I know, what some of you are thinking… “Surgery! Yikes!” Relax. Modern cosmetic medicine is far less scary or complicated than it was in years past. Besides, does the idea of surgery frighten you more then the prospect of continuing to live with enlarged breasts and the subsequent embarrassment that come with them? Male breast reduction is typically a general or local anesthesia liposuction procedure, which may include the removal of excess glandular tissue. On average the surgery lasts approximately two hours and patients will need to wear a special compression garment during recovery to support the new contours of their chest. This recovery period typically lasts about two weeks and the results are permanent, the results of any future weight gain notwithstanding.

Once you’ve owned up to how strongly you feel about freeing yourself from the psychological and emotional burden you are bearing (or NOT bearing in the case of your enlarged breasts), you need to research your options and find a reputable surgeon who can help you. If you live in the NYC area, Dr. Douglas Steinbrech is a top-rated plastic surgeon and expert in the practice of male breast reduction surgery. Visit our Gynecomastia page for more information and to find out if male breast reduction surgery is right for you.

The 5 Benefits of CoolSculpting for Men

You’ve heard the traditional advice to lose weight and improve your appearance over and over again: diet and exercise. Diet and exercise, the cure all that does not always cure all. No matter how much you diet, or how much time you put in at the gym, you almost definitely have parts of your body that don’t look the way you want them too. Maybe it’s just one small pocket of fat, but for whatever reason, you can’t manage to lose it.

Now, there’s a solution: CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting removes fat easily, naturally, and painlessly. CoolSculpting uses your body’s natural processes to destroy and remove fat cells in targeted areas with no negative effects on surrounding cells and tissues.

Cells in your body are naturally destroyed when they are exposed to extremely cold temperatures. CoolSculpting takes advantage of this natural bodily function by specifically targeting fat cells and exposing them to freezing temperatures. The procedure kills the cells quickly and easily. The entire treatment takes just one hour.

For 3-4 months after treatment, your body will naturally absorb the dead fat cells and eliminate them via your natural metabolic process. All the while, all of the surrounding tissues and cells remain unharmed and function 100% as normal.

Here a few benefits CoolSculpting has to offer:

  • There’s no needles involved. CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive. There is no cutting, needles, or pain of any kind. If needles make you uncomfortable, or you want to go completely pain free, CoolSculpting is a good option for you.
  • No surgery is required. CoolSculpting is a fully non-surgical option. Treatment is performed completely on the exterior of your skin. Best of all, you will not need anesthesia, or any other medications to get through the procedure.
  • No downtime involved. If you can’t miss work, CoolSculpting takes just one hour and you can return to work immediately after. In fact, feel free to go right to the gym after the procedure. There are no post treatment restrictions, and you’ll leave feeling refreshed and renewed. In fact, most people are so comfortable during the procedure that they work, read, or nap during their hour with us.
  • It’s FDA cleared. The new technology behind CoolSculpting has been FDA approved and is completely safe for use.
  • It’s safe and clinically proven. CoolSculpting can be used safely and effectively. With just one session, you will see an average reduction of 25% of fat from the treated area. If you are not satisfied after the first treatment, it’s safe to receive the treatment again just two months after your first visit.

Botox for Men: Why You Should Give It a Shot

botox-for-men-NYAccording to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic surgery, over 225,000 Botox treatments were performed on men last year. It’s no secret that men, more than ever, are seeking Botox treatment.

By blocking nerve impulses, Botox relaxes the contraction of muscles to eliminate facial lines and wrinkles.

But that’s not the only thing men are getting Botox for. Botox also treats a condition called hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating. A professional man, in the workplace, does not want to have sweaty palms when shaking on a business deal. It can also be embarrassing to have sweaty underarms with odor.

Botox works to remedy the effects of aging, and to give people with hyperhidrosis confidence to go about their day sweat free.

In a highly competitive job market, it doesn’t hurt to be ahead with a refreshed and youthful appearance. In fact, men who have had Botox injections feel that they not only look better, but feel better too.

Male Plastic Surgery: Facts, Costs and Figures [Infographic]

male-plastic-surgery-infographic-thumbnailIn a recently released infographic Dr. Steinbrech of Men’s Plastic Surgery Manhattan revealed that Male Plastic Surgery is as popular as ever today. Apart from the 106% increase in the last 2 decades, statistics have shown that more than 1,000,000 male individuals received cosmetic surgical procedures.

Dr. Steinbrech; however, does not find the results so astonishing. “Men are doing it for job reasons, to look good, to become male models. We have also performed surgeries on many CEOs who are at the top of their game, and want to stay young and very competitive in the boardroom.”
