Male Breast Reduction
Breast reduction is not solely limited to women. Gynecomastia Surgery is more commonly referred to as Male Breast Reduction. If you are suffering from Gynecomastia or enlarged male breasts, cosmetic surgery is an option to achieve a contoured chest and have firmer, flatter, breasts. Gynecomastia may be present in one breast or both breasts and is characterized by the excess amount of localized fat, glandular tissue development, or a combination of the two. While certain drugs and medical conditions can contribute to large breasts, other causes are unknown. Enlarged male breasts can be reduced with liposuction and/or by surgically removing excessive glandular tissue, fat, and skin.*
Emotional Relief and Self Confidence
Men who have over-developed or large breasts may suffer emotional discomfort. Some men choose to avoid physical activities like swimming or other sports that require you to take your shirt off. Men might also find discomfort in moments of intimacy and in other ways lack of confidence in the body and try to hide their condition. If you are suffering from embarrassing enlarged breasts, male breast reduction surgery may be the treatment to help restore your self-confidence and get a flat, firm, chest that you desire.
Male Breast Reduction Surgical results are permanent, although this can change with significant weight gain. The best results are those that match realistic expectations. Chief candidates for this surgery are men who are in good physical and emotional health. Also men who have firm skin and sufficient elasticity to adapt to the body’s newly enhanced contours.*
