Breast Reduction is a very common procedure for women and for men as well. While reduction procedures may have different specific purposes for men and women, the basic goal is to reduce breasts to achieve physical comfort and aesthetic balance. The term for the female procedure is reduction mammaplasty while that for males is known as male breast reduction or gynecomastia. Thankfully, Houston-based Dr. Wilberto G. Cortés performs both reduction surgeries with finesse and expertise. Reduction mammaplasty aims to reshape female breasts so they become lighter and firmer. Extra sized boobs can cause physical strain, emotional anxiety and social embarrassment to women. While most ladies prefer big breasts to accentuate their body form, excessively sized ones can become debilitating for every woman. Some of these physical inconveniences due to huge boobs include neck pain, back pain, breathing problems and skin irritation. Mammaplasty surgery is accomplished by eliminating excess fat, glandular tissue and skin around the boobs. After the consultation, Dr. Cortés creates a surgical plan emphasizing personal care and satisfaction. Men with large breasts are afflicted with a condition called gynecomastia. It is a Greek term which translates to woman-like breasts. While the actual cause of gynecomastia remains largely a mystery, there are several factors suspected of causing the condition, including heredity, steroids use, hormonal imbalance and unusual weight changes. Aside from physical discomfort, guys with enlarged breasts go through countless embarrassments and even trauma for some. Dr. Cortés performs breast reduction on males by eliminating excess breast tissue and chest fat to achieve a more manly body for men. To provide the best surgical results, the plastic surgeon spends time to talk with each of his patient before giving realistic recommendations to remedy gynecomastia. The well-respected and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Cortés believes that reduction surgery is extremely personal and unique for each person.
