Male Breast Reduction

Male Breast Reduction

Male breast enlargement or gynecomastia, the condition of over-developed breast tissue in men, is common in men of any age. It may be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, disease or the use of certain drugs. Gynecomastia can be more than a physical problem, causing emotional discomfort as well and impairing an adolescent or adult male’s self-confidence. If you have gynecomastia, breast reduction surgery may be right for you. Typically, gynecomastia can be surgically treated by removing excess fat and glandular tissue through a small incision hidden at the top of the areola. The providers uses ultrasonic liposuction to dissolve the dense fibrous tissue of the male breast in order to properly sculpt the chest wall into a more masculine shape. Some of our most satisfied male patients are those who have had this procedure to correct persistent and troubling male breast enlargement.
