Male Plastic Surgery – Gynecomastia Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia is the term given to over-developed breasts in men. This is a relatively common condition in boys going through puberty and about 90% will outgrow it. However, the remaining 10% often times are left feeling ostracized, alone, even humiliated by the condition.

Male Breast Reduction Surgery can successfully treat Gynecomastia and is a fairly simple procedure wherein a small incision is made, generally around the lower portion of the areola, and the extra tissue is removed. In more extreme cases, excess skin may also be excised. The procedure generally lasts under an hour and a half and the satisfaction rate is very high.
