Should You Consider Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
Do you have enlarged breasts that cause you embarrassment and prevent you from showing your chest shirtless? Is it embarrassing going to the beach or public pool and taking your shirt off? Do you have puffy nipples that cause concern?
Gynecomastia or male breast enlargement is a condition characterized by abnormal swelling of the male breast. Male breast reduction corrects this condition.
“Man boobs” may be the result in the following situations:
- generalized excess fatty tissue as in obesity
- loss of such excess fatty tissue as in massive weight loss giving a loose skin, sagging empty breast look
- abnormal overgrowth of the breast disk giving an enlarged male breast in an otherwise normal weight individual. This is due to: hormonal imbalance or irregularities, drug intake (eg anabolic steroids), idiopathic (no identifiable cause).
