At Coastal Plains Surgical Care Dr. James Schlotter offers his patients the Scar-Less reduction. Patients desire breast reduction for a variety of reasons.
What is gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is when the gland tissue enlarges in the male breast. This is not to be confused with pseudogynecomastia or lipomastia which is the fat deposits in obese men’s breasts. Gynecomastia is a common disorder that can develop in any stage of a male’s life. This disorder is a direct result from imbalanced hormones where the female hormones, estrogen is increased in relation to the male hormone, androgen.
Scarless Breast Reduction for Men
Dr. Schlotter offers men (and women) the option of scarless breast reduction with little to no scarring. This is a great option for men that are afflicted with enlarged breast and do not want to the traditional breast reduction with scars and high cost.
