Up to 50% of all men will develop enlarged breasts at some point in their lives. Despite being common, gynecomastia is often surrounded by myths and misinformation. Gynecomastia surgery treats enlarged male breasts for a more masculine appearance. This procedure removes excess fat and breast tissue for a flatter, smoother chest.
What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia or male breast enlargement can happen for a variety of reasons. Gynecomastia that develops during puberty results from rapidly changing hormones. The condition has a strong hereditary component, and can also be caused by certain medications or medical conditions. Your enlarged breasts can contain mostly breast tissue, mostly fat, or an even distribution of the two. Dr. Tenley Lawton has extensive experience treating gynecomastia and achieving a pleasing, masculine shape.
