What is Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)?
Gynecomastia or commonly referred to as man boobs is a condition in which males develop excess breast tissue and/or fat on their chest. The development of breast tissue can be caused by a hormone imbalance or as a result of dramatic weight loss. Although it’s not a health concern, Gynecomastia can be very distressing, causing men of all ages and fitness levels to have low self-esteem.
How is it performed?
Male breast reduction involves the removal of excess fat and breast tissue by making a small incision around the nipple. Patients who only have fatty tissue without excess skin can be treated with Liposuction alone to smooth the chest area. If there is excess skin, however, this will be removed by your surgeon for a more masculine look.
