For men who feel self-conscious about extra fat and tissue around the chest area, Dr. Zwiebel offers a procedure designed to flatten and smooth the chest. Gynecomastia, often referred to as male breast reduction can improve a male patient’s appearance and help increase his confidence.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Zwiebel offers two forms of this procedure to his patients depending on the amount of fat, skin, and tissue that needs to be removed.
If fat, skin, and glandular tissue need to be removed, Dr. Zwiebel performs this procedure using a scalpel or scalpel-liposuction approach. For this procedure the incision can usually be placed discreetly in the underarm area or around the areola (the dark area surrounding the nipple).
If only fatty tissue needs to be removed, then Dr. Zwiebel will perform liposuction alone. This option entails a much smaller incision.
We would like to emphasize that gynecomastia is a surgical procedure and, as such, carries with it some risk. At his plastic surgery center in Highlands Ranch, Dr. Zwiebel encourages all his patients to learn as much about the process before undergoing male breast reduction. Patients in the Centennial and Castle rock areas can call ahead for a consultation: 303-470-3400.
