Is gynecomastia Right for Me?
Characterized by excess fat and/or glandular tissue in one or both breasts, and in severe cases, excess skin, and downward pointing nipples and enlarged areolas, gynecomastia can be caused due to a number of factors that include:
- Hormonal changes
- Weight fluctuation
- Use of anabolic steroidal drugs
- Use of certain prescription medications
- Use of marijuana
If you have signs of male breast development, Dr. Chris Livingston assists with a reduction mammaplasty to flatten the chest and create a more masculine chest contour. In most cases, ultrasonic and traditional liposuction in Houston is sufficient; however, in more severe cases, skin and glandular tissue excision may be necessary to achieve the desired result.
