Dr. George Pope, ASPS member and board-certified gynecomastia correction surgeon at Orlando Plastic Surgery Center, said that gynecomastia treatments Orlando topped 2011’s list of most requested surgeries at his practice.

Online PR News – 01-April-2012 – Orlando,FL – Dr. George Pope, ASPS member and board-certified gynecomastia correction surgeon at Orlando Plastic Surgery Center, said that gynecomastia treatments Orlando topped 2011’s list of most requested surgeries at the Orlando plastic surgery practice, and it continues to be one of the practice’s most sought-after procedures.

“Men are finally understanding that it’s acceptable to undergo these type of surgeries,” said Dr. Pope.

In a society where youth and good looks are highly valued and where masculinity is exalted, men are more likely to undergo cosmetic procedures, both surgical (rhinoplasty, eye lid lift, and gynecomastia correction) and non-surgical (injectables, peels, and facials).

According to Dr. Pope, an informative free webinar on gynecomastia correction will be hosted by Orlando Plastic Surgery Center on April 25, 2012, at 7 p.m. Individuals can register for the event online.

“Today’s men realize the value of attractiveness—plastic surgery is no longer just something that women do,” said Dr. Pope. “Cosmetic surgery is a way for men to stay competitive in their careers and their personal lives.”

Dr. Pope said that gynecomastia correction is a touchy subject with most men. “By the time they get to the practice, they’ve tried every diet and exercise routine possible in order to rid themselves of overdeveloped breast tissue,” said Dr. Pope. “The condition of gynecomastia can be emotionally devastating for men. Feeling of shame, embarrassment, and humiliation are common.”

Gynecomastia, the over-development of breast tissue in men, is common in men of every age, and according to some medical sources, more than sixty percent of men worldwide suffer from some form of gynecomastia. The term comes from the Greek words “gyne” meaning "woman" and “mastos” meaning "breast." Diet and exercise are not enough to cure the problem. In most cases, surgery is the only option.

There are a variety of factors that may contribute to gynecomastia, including puberty, when small increases in estrogen production can cause breast tissue growth in males. Other causes of gynecomastia may include obesity, genetic disorders, liver disease, medication side effects, Gildber’s Syndrome, Klinefelter Syndrome, marijuana use, and steroid abuse.

“When a patient is physically and psychologically ready for gynecomastia correction, it is important to select the right plastic surgeon,” said Dr. Pope. “Ask plenty of questions—a good surgeon will answer every single one—and make sure to see plenty of before and after photos. Most importantly, make sure that you are consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon for gynecomastia treatments Orlando —one that is experienced in gynecomastia correction.”

According to Dr. Pope, an informative free webinar on gynecomastia correction will be hosted by Orlando Plastic Surgery Center on April 25, 2012, at 7 p.m. More details on the free webinar will be released soon. Individuals can register for the event online or by calling the practice or e-mailing info@orlandoplasticsurgerycenter.com.
