Schedule a Consultation

Gynecomastia, is very common, but is infrequently discussed. If you feel ashamed or insecure about taking off your shirt at the beach or at the gym, you are not alone.

Deposits of excess fat and breast tissue affect 40%-60% of men, and whether mild or severe, they can be the source of considerable embarrassment and self consciousness. Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction, is frequently performed to reduce the size and shape of the enlarged breast tissue. While gynecomastia can contribute to physical pain in the breast area, for most men it is the discomfort they feel with their shirts off. Although weight loss can help reduce gynecomastia, for most it will not eliminate it. In most cases, gynecomastia correction, or male breast reduction, surgery proves to be the only solution.
