Male breast reduction

Male breast reduction procedures remove the excess breast tissue to permanently restore a normal appearance.

All men have breast tissue. A few, unfortunately, have an excessive amount and can resemble a ladies figure. Occasionally this is due to a hormone imbalance, however, in some instances there is no detectable abnormality either on blood tests or clinical examination.

Regardless of the cause, this condition causes men a great deal of embarrassment. Many men say that they forego swimming and sunbathing to avoid taking their shirts off. No amount of exercise or diet will solve the problem.

By undergoing male breast reduction surgery and removing the excessive tissue, men are able to permanently restore a normal appearance.
