Male Gynecomastia Surgery
If you are a man with an overdeveloped chest, you may be suffering from gynecomastia. Enlarged male breasts can be painful and embarrassing to live with. It can make it difficult to work out or go to the beach because you are uncomfortable with your appearance. Male gynecomastia surgery can remove excess tissue to contour the breasts with minimal scarring.
What is Male Gynecomastia?
Male gynecomastia is the result of a hormonal imbalance of decreased testosterone levels in relation to estrogen levels. This imbalance can be caused by natural hormone changes from aging or certain health conditions. Other factors include anabolic steroids, medications and cancer treatments. If the condition doesn’t resolve itself on its own or with certain medical treatments, surgery may be required.
