Gynecomastia affects a large portion of males. Most of the time, this condition occurs during puberty, when the body is flooded with hormones. Gynecomastia, also known as enlarged male breasts, will be an issue for many men at some point in their life.

If you are concerned about symptoms related to gynecomastia, now is the time to learn about the most effective solution to this problem, a treatment known as a male breast reduction.

Male breast reduction is a surgical procedure that can reduce the size of overdeveloped male breasts. Male breast reduction often incorporates a combination of tissue excision and fat reduction via liposuction.

The techniques used will depend on the specific needs of each patient, since every circumstance is unique. Male breast reduction can also treat drooping and can be used for areola reduction.
