Manhattan Male Breast Reduction – Correction of Enlarged Male Breasts (Gynecomastia)
A word about breast reduction in men…
In Manhattan, male breast reduction is performed for the purpose of treating gynecomastia. This medical term comes from the Greek words for “women-like breasts.” Though this oddly named condition is rarely talked about, it’s actually quite common. Gynecomastia affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of men. It may affect only one breast or both. Though certain drugs and medical problems have been linked with male breast overdevelopment, there is no known cause in the vast majority of cases.
For men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, breast-reduction surgery can help. The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured.
If you’re considering surgery to correct gynecomastia, this text will give you a basic understanding of the procedure–when it can help, how it’s performed, and what results you can expect. It can’t answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on your individual circumstances. If there is anything about the procedure you don’t understand, please be sure to ask Dr. Zevon in Manhattan. Male breast reduction can make you feel like a man again.
