Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia is a condition in which breasts are enlarged in males. It can be caused due to drugs like anabolic steroids, hormone therapy or medicines containing estrogen, alcohol, marijuana, etc., and medical disorders including cancer, damaged liver function, etc. However, in many cases, the exact cause cannot be determined.
Male breasts can be very uncomfortable and embarrassing, and lead to a number of problems. Men with Gynecomastia tend to be very self-conscious and suffer from low self-esteem and confidence issues as well. This has a direct impact on personality, participation in sport, social functioning and even professional success.
When Gynecomastia starts affecting a person’s life negatively, it is best to look for a permanent solution. Male breast reduction surgery can restore a masculine physique, and with it, a person’s self-confidence. It is estimated that 40-60% men have Gynecomastia, but not all of them require or are good candidates for surgery.
