A male breast reduction is the surgical solution to a condition shared by a surprisingly high number of men. Known as gynecomastia, this condition is characterized by enlarged breasts that resemble those of a female. It often comes about as a result of a hormonal imbalance.
During a male breast reduction to correct gynecomastia, liposuction is incorporated and glandular excision is often required.
This is a straightforward procedure that shouldn’t require a massive recovery. Patients are allowed to return home that same day. When fully healed, the patient should be left with a firm, flat chest without the excess fatty tissue.
