Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Gynecomastia affects about l/4 of the male population. Gynecomastia is excessive breast tissue or overdeveloped and enlarged breasts, and is quite common in men of any age. The condition can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity conditions, disease or the use of certain drugs.
Gynecomastia is characterized by localized fat in one or both breasts, and /or an excess of glandular tissue. Unfortunately, many men are bothered by this condition from puberty on. At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery in Natick, MA, our board-certified plastic surgeon has treated many cases of gynecomastia, reducing the size of the men’s breasts with liposuction and possibly direct surgical excision to remove the fatty and glandular tissue.
Each patient is unique and we try to customize the procedure to address each patient’s specific needs. The procedure is performed as an outpatient so you will be home the evening of surgery. After surgery most patients return to work within a week. Vigorous exercise is limited for a few weeks after surgery.
To find out if this procedure may be right for you, we encourage you to contact our office with any questions or to schedule your private consultation.
