Gynecomastia (Overdeveloped Breast)
Breast development in men can be a significant source of social distress and anxiety. This is particularly true in adolescents but this can affect men of all ages. The procedure uses liposuction and sometimes small incisions around the nipple to remove the unwanted breast tissue. The best candidates are men with firm elastic skin that will shrink around the pectoralis muscle once the tissue has been removed.
There are a number of medications and drugs that can cause gynecomastia, including heavy alcohol use, marijuana and anabolic steroids. It is important to review your entire health history and rule out other causes as well before performing surgery.
