Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

Gynecomastia is a condition affecting men that refers to the development of enlarged breast tissue. This can be caused by a variety of factors including obesity and hormonal imbalances. When excess fat, breast and glandular tissue accumulate in the chest area for men, it can detract from the natural masculine contours of the chest, and create a flabby, undesirable appearance. Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction, is a common cosmetic procedure that's performed to reduce excess tissue and fat in the chest; thus restoring a more masculine physique.

"Hey guys,

Today I had my gyno surgery. I finally stepped up to the plate and did it. This is my story about how it went.

I have had this gyno since I first hit puberty. I was always pretty skinny buy I had a pointy chest, this stopped me from going to the beach with my shirt off when I got a little older, I never went to the pools etc. It really bothered me.

The Procedure:
Gynecomastia can be difficult to treat because weight loss and exercise do not necessarily remove the breast tissue since not all of it is fat. Thankfully, male breast reduction can remove the breasts and return the look of a masculine, defined chest. The excess fat and tissue is removed though surgery allowing the patient to get back his self-confidence. Occasionally, liposuction is combined with the surgery to help remove excess fat, and to achieve the best results. If you underwent male breast reduction and would like to post a review of your surgery, visit the gynecomastia reviews and ratings section.

Gynecomastia usually takes 1-2 hours but this may vary based on the individual situation.
