What is Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction Surgery)?
Gynecomastia is a condition that can affect both younger and older men, often first setting in after puberty when the male breasts may be enlarged. For those individuals afflicted with gynecomastia, the condition is very psychologically debilitating because the ideal male chest is flat and should only have fullness or volume from muscles, not from fatty tissue. In some men, gynecomastia can cause them to withdraw from certain social situations, or avoid certain environments such as the gym the beach or the pool, as the appearance of male breasts can be stigmatizing. Gynecomastia may be due to a variety of different factors, and during your consultation, Dr. Emmett, will examine you and recommend a surgical strategy that best suits your needs.
