Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones of Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists is a trusted and proven leader in surgical treatment for Gynecomastia. The word Gynecomastia is Greek for ‘women-like breasts’, and the condition can occur in pubescent men, overweight men, and men with hormonal issues. It’s a very common condition and treating it with breast surgery is becoming routine. Though a direct cause is as of yet unknown, research suggests that alcohol, certain drugs, and pre-existing medical conditions such as cancer or liver damage can cause enlarged male breasts.
If you are a male and are suffering from the embarrassment and discomfort associated with an unnaturally large chest, we can help. By combining his extensive training and experience with the latest, most innovative techniques, Dr. Jones is able to achieve impressive results for patients with Gynecomastia, with minimal scarring. As a dedicated plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Jones considers each individual as a beautiful work of art and creates extraordinary results that look natural and elegant on both the inside and the outside.
Georgia Male Breast Reduction
Dr. Jones of Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists specializes in helping men with Gynecomastia regain their proportions with a procedure called male breast reduction. Male breast reduction can be used to help men with unnaturally enlarged breasts regain their confidence and their self-esteem. The surgery itself is completed under general or local anesthesia, taking an average of two hours. The procedure removes fat and/or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases, removes excess skin, resulting in a flatter chest. There is little downtime from work unless the patient is involved in strenuous work activities. To assist with the healing process, the patient will wear an elastic pressure garment for 3-6 weeks.
