About Male Breast Reductions
Gynecomastia is a common condition for men of any age, in which breasts become enlarged or over-developed. This condition may be caused by certain drugs, disease, heredity, or hormonal changes. This development can impair the confidence of any male, cause serious emotional discomfort or distress. This can prove to be much more than a physical problem.
If you have gynecomastia, you may benefit from male breast reduction. Newport Beach, California men seek out and benefit from the procedure more often than you might think. In general, gynecomastia can be surgically treated by removing excess fat, glandular tissue and/or skin. The result is a better proportioned, more masculine and contoured upper body as well as the freedom and self-confidence to lead an active life.
What to Expect
In extreme cases of gynecomastia, Orange County patients may see their breasts sag from excess breast tissue. This may also cause the areola to stretch. At which point, a surgeon may need to alter the size and position of the areola, while reducing the amount of excess skin.
The factors considered to determine the plastic surgery techniques appropriate to correct your gynecomastia include:
- Cause of gynecomastia
- Degree of excess breast tissue and correction necessary.
- Composition of the excess breast tissue: fat, glandular tissue and skin.
- Age and overall health
Recovering from Surgery
Turn the Clock Back
After being chosen by Tamra Judge, one of the Real Housewives of Orange County, for a breast augmentation in Season 3, Dr. Ambe was chosen once again to perform a facelift – except this time on her mother. Tamra and her mother, Sandra Baker, ultimately chose Dr. Ambe due to his reputation as one of the best facelift surgeons in Newport Beach/Orange County and one that specializes in very natural facelift results. After her incredible results last season, Tamra knew that Dr. Ambe would give her mother the perfect “turn the clock back” look she desired.
