Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

Gynecomastia or abnormal male breast enlargement is a relatively common condition that can limit one’s lifestyle and be extremely embarrassing for men of all ages. It occurs in both teenage years and later in life as a result of weight change or certain medications. A significant number of patients are quite slim and exercise regularly which regrettably makes little difference to the appearance of gynecomastia.

Fortunately surgical options are available that can reliably correct this deformity and allow a return to exercise, swimming and wearing more fitting clothing. My philosophy in treating this condition is to aim for a very natural looking chest wall with a minimum of well-planned and hidden scars. This is most definitely a procedure that needs to be individualized to the patient to achieve a good result.
