Gynecomastia is a condition which occurs in certain males causing the appearance or development of breast tissue. Men experiencing varying levels of the condition often experience self-confidence issues which can affect their social life and impact their sense of intimacy.
The condition is more likely to develop during puberty or later in life. It is often associated with excessive fat from changes in body composition, a glandular tissue or the development of breast skin.
Fortunately, Dr. Charles V. Pledger and the staff at his clinic in Provo, Utah, can help men with gynecomastia to restore a more masculine looking chest. The cause and severity of the issue may influence the treatment. After a comprehensive assessment, Dr. Pledger will help you understand your treatment options.
In some of these cases surgical intervention can slim the appearance of the unwanted tissue. If surgery is warranted, we will help you understand your post-operative recovery measures. Recovery measures might include taking additional time off from work as well as prescription medications which will need to be taken at the stated times and dosages.
