Known to medical professionals as gynecomastia, the condition of abnormally enlarged breasts in men is often assumed to simply be a sign of excess body fat. However, true cases of the syndrome that call for male breast reduction are often largely glandular in nature. The causes can range from glandular hypergonadism, drug reactions, liver disease, and past issues with malnutrition, but by far the most common is simple adolescence. Very often, however, there is no known cause.
Gynecomastia is an overdevelopment of male breasts that affects 40 to 60 percent of men to some degree at various stages of their life. While not a serious medical condition, it may be painful and can often significantly affect a man’s self esteem. Although this embarrassing and sometimes painful condition can often be treated in a variety of ways, it often subsides on its own in the case of young males. Long-lasting cases, however, are usually going to remain largely unchanged without a surgical intervention.
Typical gynecomastia surgeries often involve liposuction and the removal of excess tissue. In some cases, excess skin may be removed. The good news is that it may often be performed while the patient is completely awake, under local anesthesia.
Dr. J. is a highly experienced doctor who has performed gynecomastia surgery procedures on patients of all ages and he knows how to discuss the matter clearly and sensitively. Gynecomastia is an issue that can be embarrassing for patients, but Dr. J. knows how to walk them through the available methods for dealing with the issue in the most painless manner possible. Any man who feels insecure about his enlarged breasts does not need to suffer any longer.
