Male Breast Reduction
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia) in Charlotte NC
Male Breast Reduction or Gynecomastia is a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men that can occur at any age. The condition can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, obesity, or the use of certain drugs. Source: plasticsurgery.org Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair your self confidence. Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition. Gynecomastia is characterized by:
- Excess localized fat
- Excess glandular tissue development
- Sometimes excess breast skin
- Presence unilaterally (one breast) or bilaterally (both breasts)
The surgical goal is to remove the excess glandular and soft fatty breast tissue and contour the breast to a natural aesthetic male breast appearance while minimizing visible scars.
Male breast reduction is an effective surgery for reducing the volume of breast tissue in men, and re-contouring the chest for a more masculine appearance. Fat, breast gland tissue, and excess skin can be removed and tightened for a smooth appearance to the chest.
