MALE BREAST REDUCTION
Male Breast Reduction also known as Gynecomastia is a condition which can start in adolescence and may persist or can develop in an older man due to steroid abuse, weight gain, hormonal imbalance, or a side effect of certain medications. Fortunately, this common condition in the adolescent age group generally resolves in 2 years. However, if this condition continues it causes stress as well as embarrassment, causing patients to seek Plastic Surgery.
Male breast reduction can be obtained with the help of liposuction as well as surgical removal of the breasts. Most of the time this can be performed through limited incisions that leave inconspicuous scars. The procedure is done under general anesthesia, and takes approximately 2 hours. Patients can resume most activities within 2 weeks, and should be able to perform chest exercises and heavy lifting by 8 weeks.
