PROCEDURES :: MALE BREAST REDUCTION
Breast enlargement called gynecomastia can be a significant problem affecting men.This usually begins during puberty due to hormonal influences and in some resolves when they become fully mature.
Male Breast Reduction
Persistent male breast enlargement can be the result of too much true breast tissue and/or fat on the chest. Occassionally the breasts are so large that men are reluctant to expose their chests in public thus affecting their desired lifestyle choices.
Male breast reduction surgery can frequently be performed with minimal scarring or scars restricted to the nipple areolar (coloured portion) area when they generally heal exceptionally well. Surgery is performed using liposuction only or with a combination of liposuction and surgical excision. This helps to restore the male chest to a more masculine appearance with a very high level of satisfaction among patients.
