Gynecomastia on the Grow
Excessively large male breasts, known as gynecomastia, can produce a feeling of self-consciousness about body image that can inhibit lifestyle choices and daily activities. In most cases, the glandular and fatty tissue enlargement of the male breasts begins during puberty. It is usually a benign condition, but can be associated with hormonal abnormalities that may need additional evaluation.
Gynecomastia procedures, otherwise known as male breast reduction procedures, improve the problem of excess breast size by reducing the excess size and prominence of the breast fatty tissue using liposuction, removing excess glandular tissue from within the breast, reducing protrusion of the nipple, and stimulating skin retraction.
Most patients experience a dramatic improvement in their appearance soon after gynecomastia surgery. They can often participate in many activities that they were either unable or unwilling to do before and feel more comfortable in clothing.
