Male Breast Reduction

Male Breast Reduction

Male breast reduction, also called Gynecomastia, is a cosmetic surgical procedure to reduce the size of breasts in men. Male breast size can increase any time during their life. Dermatologists hold several factors responsible for the change, including obesity, genetics, and use of drugs.

Increase in size of men’s breasts can lead to mounting distress, both emotional and social and as a result it can have negative impact over self-confidence of the patient. The good news is that men suffering from large breasts can now get rid of the condition with Gynecomastia.

If you are a man and suffering as a result of large breasts, Gynecomastia surgery is the solution. The procedure will reduce your breast size, and as a result flatten and enhance your chest outline and appearance. In some cases of large breasts, the weight of extra breast tissues is caused by stretch of the areola and treatment often involves surgical intervention to improve the areola’s position.

What gynecomastia does?

Gynecomastia has the potential to reduce your breast size by:

  1. Removing extra, localized fat deposits.
  2. Stopping extra glandular tissue development.
  3. Getting you rid of extra breast skin
