Male Breast Reduction

Male Breast Reduction

Affecting approximately 40 to 60 percent of men, Gynectomastia is a medical condition occurring in men whose etymology is aptly found in the Greek word for "women-like breasts."

Men who wish to rectify enlarged male breasts may choose to undergo male breast reduction surgery during which a cosmetic surgeon flattens and contours male breasts by removing fatty tissue. Male breast surgery of this kind firms the chest region, yielding a more normal male form.

Although breast reduction surgery complications are minor if the procedure is performed by a reputable plastic surgeon, male breast reduction risks include infection, fluid or blood loss, scaring, pigment changes and nipple asymmetry.

Consult a cosmetic breast surgeon before considering any form of breast plastic surgery, be it male breast reduction or male breast enhancement.
