Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)
What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition in which the swelling of the breast tissue in boys or men is caused by an imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone. Gynecomastia can affect one or both breasts, sometimes unevenly. Newborns, boys going through puberty, and older men may develop gynecomastia as a result of normal changes in hormone levels, though other causes also exist.
Generally, gynecomastia isn’t a serious problem, but it can be tough to cope with. Men and boys with gynecomastia sometimes have pain in their breasts and may feel embarrassed.
Gynecomastia may go away on its own. If it persists, medication or surgery may help. If you feel you are suffering from Gynecomastia, consider undergoing a male breast reduction. Contact our offices for more information on the procedure and schedule your consultation today!
