Dr. Kressel offers a variety of breast procedures based on your needs and desires. Breast procedures include breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, breast reconstruction, and male breast reduction for the condition known as gynecomastia, which produces the appearance of breasts (“man boobs”) in males of all ages. Typically caused by a hormone imbalance, gynecomastia is fairly common among boys going through puberty and often resolves by itself in about six months, though it can also take as long as two years.
If the condition does not resolve itself, many males opt for male breast reduction to achieve the more masculine-looking chest they really want. A related condition is called pseudo-gynecomastia and is caused by excess body fat and the loss of muscle mass in older males. This condition can be best corrected through a combination of weight loss and muscle strength training for added muscle mass.
Females are still far more likely than males to seek surgical solutions for overly small or large breasts, sagging breasts, uneven breasts, and breasts that have been damaged or lost to cancer surgery. That’s why Dr. Kressel performs breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, and breast reconstruction. Breast procedures such as these can not only approve your appearance and the way your clothes fit, they can dramatically improve your self-confidence.
Tell Dr. Kressel about your goals and he will gladly explain each of your options in as much detail as you need to make the right decision for yourself.
