Gynecomastia Surgery – Male Breast Reduction

Male breast enlargement is more common than you might think. It is often developed in adolescence and persists into adulthood. Albeit undesirable, enlarged male breasts should not be viewed as something abnormal, but rather something that is common and very treatable.

The treatment of gynecomastia – oversized male breasts – has become mainstream. It is not just the teenagers and weightlifters with extreme cases seeking male chest reduction surgery; it is the men in their 20s and 30s with extra tissue in their chest area making it look like they have female breasts or man boobs. It is now one of the most common operations performed by Dr. Teitelbaum.

There are two methods for treating man boobs: liposuction and excision. Liposuction surgery is ideal for the reduction of fat, because fat is soft and is easily removed through a cannula. However, firm and glandular gynecomastia tissue cannot be removed by liposuction; it needs to be excised. There are gynecomastia risks and complications that need to be understood.
