Breasts that are too large can cause more than just a body-image problem. This is a condition that can cause pain and discomfort, impairing a person's ability to lead an active life. Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast tissue and reshapes the contour of the breasts so that they are smaller and perkier. Breast reduction in men and teenage boys, known as gynecomastia, has been shown to improve self-image.
Breast-reduction surgery with smaller scars is now possible. Dr. Copeland uses a minimal incision technique (Le Jour), eliminating the need for large scars while providing a pleasing breast contour and shape.
Scarless Breast Reduction (liposuction) is now also possible for individuals who want reduction without lifting. Recovery is rapid, and there is virtually no scarring. Breast lipo is also a quick and effective way of correcting breast asymmetry.
Gynecomastia—over-developed or enlarged breasts—is common in men of any age. The condition may occur due to hormonal changes, heredity, disease, or the use of certain drugs. Gynecomastia can be more than just a physical problem; it can cause emotional discomfort and impair the self-confidence of adolescents as well as adult males. Dr. Copeland uses a virtually scarless technique to reduce the male breast. This can be performed as an outpatient procedure, under twilight anesthesia.
