MALE BREAST REDUCTION
Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction, is the surgical correction of overdeveloped or enlarged breasts in men, reducing breast size, and flattening and enhancing chest contours.
IS MALE BREAST
RIGHT FOR ME?
Gynecomastia is an enlargement or swelling of breast tissue in males affecting one or both breasts. Gynecomastia occurs naturally at different times in a male’s life and is most commonly caused by an imbalance between estrogen and testosterone hormones but can also be caused by heredity, obesity or the use of certain drugs. Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair self-confidence.
