Gynecomastia is the swelling of breast tissue in males. Most males will experience this during puberty, but it will typically subside. For some males, however, gynecomastia does not go away without help. For those who are concerned about excessive breast tissue, there is male breast reduction.
Male breast reduction is a procedure that can treat the symptoms of gynecomastia by reducing the amount of male breast tissue. The procedure is a cosmetic surgery that can involve incisions or liposuction to remove excess tissue. The technique used is determined during a thorough consultation and is based on the amount of tissue to be removed.
