As summer rolls around many couples are making their way to summer vacations, days on the boat, day trips to the beach, and outdoor activities like jet skiing. As you observe men and women enjoying the sun it’s hard not to notice men who may wear their T-shirts without ever removing them even in the hottest sun and the most active activities. For some of these men the reason for keeping on their T-shirts could be embarrassment. There are two main reasons that men are embarrassed about their bodies. For some men there could be an excessive growth of male breast tissue which causes men to have an enlarged appearance to their breast. This can cause embarrassment since enlarged the breast are associated with women and not men. This condition is called gynecomastia. Dr. Seify effectively treats gynecomastia allowing his patients to regain their confidence and to go shirtless in public unashamed. To perform gynecomastia an incision is made around the nipple areola complex where the dark and light skin colors meet. This incision heals remarkably well and is virtually undetectable within a short period of time following surgery. Through this incision Dr. Seify removes not only the growth of breast tissue but also the fat that may lie underneath. The procedure has mild to moderate discomfort and pain. The patient wears a compression vest following the surgery based on the recommended time. This helps to re-drape the skin and allow the chest to have a smooth and aesthetically pleasing appearance. The other reason men are likely to feel embarrassed about their bodies would be if they have excess thickness on their abdomen. Liposuction of the abdomen for men is an excellent option for removing small amounts of fat and contouring the abdomen for a more toned and flat abdomen. Liposuction of the abdomen will reduce the inches for the waist size. Men who have intra-abdominal fat or excess loose skin will not be a candidate for liposuction. So, if your man is embarrassed to go shirtless the summer it is the perfect time to discover if gynecomastia surgery or liposuction are a viable option. Patients who are considering either of these plastic surgery procedures are encouraged to contact Dr. Seify and schedule a consultation.
