With Father’s Day just around the corner, you may think about gifting your father or the father of your children another tie, or another “Dad of the Year” mug, but why not make this year a little more special? Although the dad bod made a comeback a few years ago— all thanks to Leo Dicaprio— the dad bod certainly isn’t for everyone. If the dad in your life has been complaining about their aging body or excess breast tissue, then you may want to consider gifting them a gynecomastia surgery from Twin City Plastic Surgery.
Did you know that up to 65% of men are affected by gynecomastia at some point in their lives? Gynecomastia is a hormonal condition that causes men to develop breast tissue— leaving them feeling and looking a little more feminine.
What’s Gynecomastia Surgery?
During surgery, we make tiny incisions typically around the nipple line so that they are hidden. After we make the incisions, our surgeons will remove excess breast tissue to help give the patient back a more chiseled chest. Additionally, we may reposition the nipple so that it gives the patient a more natural male contour. If there is excess skin that needs to be removed, we can also do it at that time.
70% of boys develop gynecomastia during puberty, but it typically goes away by the time they reach their late teens or early twenties. If the dad in your life is in their 50’s and 60’s and has developed gynecomastia, they may not want to wait for it to fade or may wonder if it ever will. Gift the dad in your life a gift that will make them feel better about their body this summer. To learn more about gynecomastia surgery, schedule a consultation with our Twin City Plastic Surgery office and call our Peoria office at (309) 662-6772.
