Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)
Gynecomastia is a condition that affects men and results in enlarged breast glands in boys or men. Gynecomastia is a condition in which males develop enlargement of the breast caused by the imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone. This is quite common in adolescents and is often first noted at the onset of puberty. Gynecomastia affects an estimated 40% to 60% of men.
The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured. For men who are self-conscious about their chest, breast reduction surgery can help. To learn more about this procedure we suggest an in office consultation with The Hughes Center.
