Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia, while rarely discussed, is a fairly common medical condition characterized by an enlarged breast in men. In fact, it’s believed that 40 to 60% of men suffer from gynecomastia. While there is no known cause in many cases of gynecomastia, there has been some correlation with certain drugs and medical conditions.

For men who are self-conscious about their appearance, male breast reduction surgery can help by restoring a flatter, firmer appearance to the male chest. Prior to surgery, patients should be checked to see if there is any medical cause of their gynecomastia and if there is it should be sufficiently treated.
