Enlarged male breasts are far from rare. Over half of all men will experience it at some point in their lives, especially during puberty. Gynecomastia can make you self-conscious and affect your ability to pursue the activities you enjoy. If you want to reduce your enlarged male breasts, gynecomastia surgery can restore a flatter, more masculine chest.
What is Gynecomastia?
Men can develop enlarged male breasts for a variety of reasons. Causes of gynecomastia include genetics, hormonal changes, and certain medications. The enlarged breasts may contain mostly fat, mostly skin, or a combination of the two. You may also have glandular tissue contributing to your gynecomastia. Dr. Tenley Lawton will base her surgical procedure on the type of gynecomastia that affects you.
