Gynecomastia (enlarged breast tissue in men)
Gynecomastia can affect upwards to 40-60% of the male population and can have a negative impact on self esteem and self image. There can be a few causes of gynecomastia and some are medical that must be further evaluated and worked up. Gynecomastia is male breast enlargement that is due either to excess fat accumulation or excess glandular tissue development or a combination of both.
Gynecomastia Surgery (Male breast reduction)
Surgery can help to eliminate the excess tissue (either fat or breast tissue or both). Surgery can range from pure liposuction/sculpting of the chest with minimal incision sites to requiring a larger/longer incision to remove excess fat and breast tissue as well as the excess skin that has developed as well. Schedule a consultation with your surgeon to determine which operation is the most suitable for you and your desired goals.
