Plastic surgery procedures have made it possible to bring dramatic changes in the appearance of a person. If a deformity on face or any other part of body causes someone to be self conscious and brings down his/her level of confidence, plastic surgery doctors can be consulted for an effective treatment. A little help through plastic or cosmetic surgery has brought about life changing experiences for many.
Though everyone wants to look and feel good, certain cosmetic issues can be gender specific. Gynecomastia is a condition of over developed breasts in males and can affect a man of any age. Though it is typical to men who are overweight or obese, gynecomastia may also be caused by hormonal changes, diseases or use of certain drugs. It can cause a lot of emotional discomfort or self consciousness in men. The condition is characterized by:
- Excessive localized fat
- Excessive glandular tissue development
Dr. George Pope, MD, FACS, of Orlando Plastic Surgery Center has performed numerous surgeries in Florida for gynecomastia correction. He is a cosmetic surgeon with more than 23 years of experience in the field and is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Pope is also a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons and The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. He has given his patients a permanent solution to the problem of gynecomastia.
Patients visiting Orlando Plastic surgery Center for gynecomastia surgery must honestly disclose their medical history and inform Dr. Pope about any medicines or drugs that might have caused gynecomastia. Smokers must give up the habit completely to ensure the best results of surgery.
Dr. George Pope performs gynecomastia corrective surgery under general anesthesia and an intravenous sedation is also given for the treatment. He also uses liposuction techniques in cases where the primary cause of gynecomastia is obesity or excess fatty tissues. For this, Dr. Pope inserts liposuction cannula through a small incision to loosen and pull excess fat through vacuum suction. He uses excision techniques for gynecomastia correction if a glandular breast tissue or excess skin needs to be removed. Excision is also necessary in cases where the areola must be reduced or the breast nipple must be repositioned for a more natural male contour.
On an average a gynecomastia surgery at Orlando Plastic Surgery Center takes less than 3 hours and the patient can return to normal activities after 7-10 days from the treatment. A well chiseled, masculine chest is the direct result of gynecomastia correction by Dr. George Pope.
