While the summer solstice doesn’t occur for another several weeks, Houston’s summer temperatures are already here propelling us into bathing suit season. This can be an anxious time for some patients because they cannot hide under clothes at the pool or beach. While many think that women are primarily affected by bathing suit season phenomenon, men have their issues too. Beyond layers of fat around the abdomen and flanks, there are some adult male and adolescent male patients who must contend with gynecomastia, which is a condition creating female-like breast tissue in men.   While many gynecomastia cases in adolescent males self-resolve, this is not the case for adults. Men who have gynecomastia usually dread taking off their shirt in public places because they are self-conscious about having large breasts. Gynecomastia is straightforward to resolve using liposuction to remove the excess fat tissue. During this procedure a very small cannula is used and inserted through small, strategically placed incisions. The result is a reduction of the fatty tissue thereby restoring the chest to a more masculine appearance. Dr. Michael Eisemann of The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center understands that this can be a tough issue for men, and especially teens. Dr. Eisemann has performed hundreds upon hundreds of gynecomastia correction surgeries successfully.
