We've all heard the term, "man boobs."
And we've all heard the term, "breast reduction."
But more than likely, not in conversation with a male who has had one, also known as a Gynecomastia procedure.
The Northwest Arkansas Center for Plastic Surgery recently received a wonderful Google Review from a male patient who had a Gynecomastia procedure performed by Dr. Kelamis, ASPS Board Certified Plastic Surgeon:
First, bravo to this patient for having the confidence to voluntarily speak on a public forum on his experience. His authentic review and accompanying concerns speak to the stigma of men having extra breast tissue removed. We hear so many females talking freely about their breast reduction, but what about males?
The truth and fact of the matter is, Dr. Stacey and Dr. Kelamis, combined, have performed 67 Gynecomastia procedures. In 2018, 24,753 procedures were performed nationwide by ASPS Board Certified Plastic Surgeons.
The goal of gynecomastia treatment is to reduce breast size in men who are embarrassed by overly large breasts. Reduction methods include liposuction, cutting out excess glandular tissue or using a combination of liposuction and excision.
At the Northwest Arkansas Center for Plastic Surgery, our patients are our #1 priority, as well as their privacy. If you're a male who is reluctant to remove your shirt in public, to swim, to participate in sports or to exercise at a gym, if you want to improve your overall body proportions, or if you experience psychological discomfort associated with "man boobs" or large breasts, Dr. Stacey and Dr. Kelamis are here to discuss your concerns with you.
