Common Male Body Problems in San Diego

Man boobs, which are caused by a condition medically known as gynecomastia, are quite common among men. In fact, it is reported that 40 to 60 percent of all men have enlarged breast tissue. Diet and exercise are often insufficient to get rid of man boobs. Enter male breast reduction, a procedure that removes excess breast tissue, and creates a sculpted and more classically masculine chest.

Women are not the only ones susceptible to muffin tops and love handles. Many millennial men are turning to tummy tuck for a flatter and firmer abdomen. The procedure excises loose skin and if necessary, tightens the underlying abdominal muscles. Liposuction techniques can be incorporated into tummy tuck to remove stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Facial wrinkles are common among middle-aged men. Facelift is the golden standard in facial rejuvenation, as it smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and removes excess skin. For men who want to minimize the appearance of mild to moderate wrinkles without surgery, Botox is an appealing option.
