Male Breast Reduction at Beautologie for Men

Breasts... for women today, there seems to be no such thing as “too big”. But for men, enlarged breasts are a source of embarrassment, anxiety and insecurity. The technical term for this condition is gynecomastia. It can affect boys and men of all ages, and has any number of causes from the natural hormone changes of puberty and old age to certain medications such as anabolic steroids and anti-androgens to certain diseases such as kidney failure, and hyperthyroidism.

Characterized by either excess fat, excess glandular tissue or both,  gynecomastia can manifest in only one breast or both. Though rarely dangerous in and of itself, it is usually emotionally damaging, and often doesn’t resolve itself on its own. Treatment begins with your doctor discovering the underlying reason for your gynecomastia. If the condition is caused by a disease such as hypogonadism or is the result of taking a medication, then treating the underlying disease and ceasing the offending medication may resolve the breast enlargement. If not, there are a number of very effective surgical options.

At Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, our surgeons are well versed in all the latest techniques for treating gynecomastia. In general, if the enlarged breasts are due to an excess of fat alone then either liposuction or ultrasonic liposuction is the treatment of choice. It’s fast, easy and effective with little to no scarring (liposuction is done through 5mm incisions hidden on each side). If, however, the swelling is due to a combination of excess fat and glandular tissue then an actual male breast reduction is necessary. This entails an inconspicuous incision underneath the areola to excise the extra tissue, followed by liposuction of the fatty tissue. Once the breasts are reduced to their desired size, there may be excess skin that will need to be removed.


Researchers Show How Sunscreen Fights Photo Aging

A study conducted by researchers at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research in Brisbane, Australia has measured the effectiveness of sunscreen for prevention of photo aging. Their research provides some of the strongest evidence for the effectiveness of daily sunscreen use.

Dr. Adele Green and her colleagues analyzed previous research done with 903 adults, all under age 55, in a 4-year period. They tracked the appearance of each subject’s hands during the course of the study, looking for changes in skin pigmentation, wrinkles and other signs of aging. Some subjects were told to use sunscreen daily, while others could apply sunscreen as they felt necessary.

For the subjects who applied sunscreen daily, the results were favorable. Over the 4-year period, they showed no detectable changes in skin condition on their hands (taking into account other factors related to sun exposure) and they were 24 percent less likely than the other group to exhibit increased signs of aging. The anti-aging effects of sunscreen were evident in both young and middle aged patients.
