Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Gynecomastia is the clinical term applied to excess development of breast tissue in men. The cause is not generally known and can cause significant anxiety, social inhibition and self-consciousness for men who suffer from this condition.
Male breast reduction, or gynecomastia surgery, removes tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases excess skin, and can improve the appearance of the chest in cases where diet and exercise have failed. The results of the procedure are significant and permanent.
IN GENERAL, THE MOST SUITABLE CANDIDATES FOR MALE BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY ARE:
Mature enough to fully understand the procedure
Experiencing embarrassment and/or social inhibition due to breast enlargement
Informed about the surgery

In good physical and psychological health
Eager to improve their appearance and/or comfort

Willing to initially try dieting and exercising as first options prior to resorting to surgery
Non-smokers or able to stop smoking during the healing process
