Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia Surgery, Breast reduction for men

Breast reduction for men
is surgery to correct
overdeveloped or enlarged
breasts (gynecomastia)

Gynecomastia may be the result of hormonal changes, hereditary conditions, weight gain, disease or the use of certain drugs including anabolic steroids and marijuana.

The chest is a prominent part of the body, and for many men, having too much fat or not enough muscle in this area can lower self-confidence. There are two main types of chest surgery, a chest (pectoral) implant, or chest reduction (also known as Gynecomastia surgery).

Breast reduction for men is surgery to correct overdeveloped or enlarged breasts. Excess breast tissue may cause a man’s breasts to sag and stretch the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple).

Gynecomastia may be present in one breast (unilaterally) or in both breasts (bilaterally).

Fully
developed

Gynecomastia is common in men of any age. Enlarged breasts in men can be the result of hormonal changes, weight gain, hereditary conditions, disease or the use of certain drugs, including anabolic steroids and marijuana.

Breast reduction surgery can be performed at any age, but is best done when the breasts are fully developed. Adolescents may benefit from surgery, although secondary procedures may be needed in the future if breast development continues.

Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and may affect a man’s self-confidence. Some men may avoid certain physical activities or intimacy with others to hide their condition.

Are you a candidate?

If your chest is overdeveloped, too fatty, or enlarged, then a chest reduction procedure may be for you. In addition, if you have loose skin that sags across the chest, this procedure can help.

The procedure is a good option if you are physically healthy and of relatively normal weight, your breast development has stabilized and you are bothered that your breasts are too large.

Procedure The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is firmer, flatter and better contoured.

In a typical procedure, a small incision is made in an inconspicuous location – either on the edge of the areola or in the underarm area. Working through the incision, the surgeon removes the excess glandular tissue, fat and skin.
