Male Breast Reduction Surgery is the surgical correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men, a condition called Gynecomastia. Over-developed or enlarged breasts in men is common in men of any age. It can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity conditions, disease or the use of certain drugs. Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair self confidence in some men. Some men even avoid certain physical activities and physical intimacy out of embarrassment and to hide their condition.
This procedure is most effective when done within the first two years after the start of male breast enlargement. If an overgrowth of the breast gland is found, a partial gland removal must be done. At Nazarian Plastic Surgery, we make a small incision around the bottom half of the areola, do a partial removal of the breast gland or breast bud and with laser liposuction remove enough fat and glandular tissue to create a normal male breast or chest appearance.
