Male Breast Reduction
Although enlarged breast tissue in males is a common condition, it can become a source of embarrassment. This condition is called gynecomastia and is the result of a hormone imbalance (too little testosterone or too much estrogen) in the body.
Hormone imbalance that can cause gynecomastia include:
- Steroid use
- Certain health conditions
Enlarged breast tissue can be corrected with a breast reduction procedure. Sometimes, liposuction is enough to correct the issue. Other treatments include the removal of fat, glandular tissue, and excess skin to reshape the chest into a flatter and more sculpted appearance.
