A male breast reduction is the most effective known treatment for gynecomastia, otherwise known as enlarged male breasts. This cosmetic surgery procedure removes excess fat and glandular tissue to restore a flatter, firmer and more masculine contour to the chest.
Due to genetics, use of certain medications, or other unspecified reasons, some men develop the appearance of enlarged breasts. Gynecomastia can present at any age, and male breast reduction can be performed safely and successfully on teenagers and adult men alike.View Gynecomastia Before & After Photos
While losing weight can help reduce the appearance of male breasts for some men, often times there is excess glandular tissue as well. Currently, male breast reduction is the only consistently effective treatment for gynecomastia that has long lasting, if not permanent, results. Following this surgery, patients commonly say they feel comfortable going shirtless for the first time in years, and report an enhanced sense of self-confidence.
