Male breast reduction, also known as gynecomastia, can help you feel more comfortable in your own body if you have over-developed or enlarged breasts. Up to half of U.S. men will experience some form of enlarged breasts in their lifetime, and nearly 13,000 men undergo breast reduction surgery each year.
It may be the right procedure for you if you are:
- Embarrassed by excess tissue in your chest region
- Dealing with a breast development that has stabilized
- Unable to treat the condition with alternative means
- Maintaining a stable, healthy weight
- In good overall health
The male breast reduction procedure removes excess fat and skin from your chest to achieve a more toned, masculine appearance. In some cases, liposuction alone can be used to treat the condition by removing excess fatty deposits. In other cases, you will need liposuction combined with a surgical incision to remove excess skin and tighten the skin over the chest area.
This surgery can greatly improve your self-confidence with natural-looking results.
