Gynecomastia is a condition that causes the over development of breast tissue in men. While there aren’t necessarily any health risks associated with gynecomastia–and causes of the condition can vary from hormone imbalance to certain types of medications–many men feel self-conscious and embarrassed by their more feminine chest appearance. Some men may eventually outgrow the condition, however other men may not see the results they want except through surgical intervention.
The male breast reduction procedure is performed to remove the excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to create a more flat, contoured, and masculine chest appearance. If there is a small amount of reduction needed, liposuction alone may achieve the desired results, while those with more pronounced gynecomastia may need the slightly more invasive male breast reduction procedure.
