HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2014) -  Enlarged or over-sized breasts is a condition that impacts men as well as women. Many of the patients that visit Dr. Sam Sukkar's Houston plastic surgery practice are men who want to eliminate excess fatty and glandular breast tissue for cosmetic reasons, as well as women who are seeking to alleviate the pain and discomfort often associated with overly large breasts. In both cases, Dr. Sukkar takes care to minimize the visibility of scars and create natural looking results that enable breast reduction patients to feel more comfortable -- and often more confident.

As reported in his blog post, Two Techniques for Gynecomastia Treatment, "All men have some glandular breast tissue." He assures any prospective patient that the condition of enlarged or swollen breast tissue in men (otherwise known as gynecomastia) is common and can typically be easily treated. He says male breast reduction surgery can involve the employment of liposuction alone, or additional surgical excision of glandular tissue when necessary. The specific approach used to achieve a flatter, more sculpted chest depends on the patient's specific indications.

When it comes to his female patients, Dr. Sukkar employs a slightly different approach to breast reduction surgery. His blog post -- titled, Is Breast Reduction Right for Me? -- highlights that a breast reduction can make a significant impact for a woman struggling with large breasts that are causing pain, irritation, and/or self-consciousness. Breast reductions can also be often performed in conjunction with body contouring procedures such as tummy tuck surgery to help restore a woman's figure after pregnancy. For women who are seeking to eliminate sagging breasts, a breast lift may be recommended to achieve their desired look as well. In the end, the post notes: "Dr. Sukkar's primary goal with any [female] breast reduction is to meet each woman's unique expectations while providing natural looking results."

Ultimately, all of Dr. Sukkar's breast reduction patients -- both men and women -- benefit from one-on-one consultations that help ensure each individual's concerns are addressed. After breast reduction surgery, Dr. Sukkar wants each person to feel comfortable and confident about his or her chest.
