Enlargement of Male Breast Tissue
Gynecomastia, the overdevelopment or enlargement of male breast tissue, is a common problem for many men. Up to 60% of men will have some degree of gynecomastia during their lifetime. Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair self-confidence. Some men may avoid certain physical activities and intimacy to hide their condition.
Your first step is to have a medical professional determine the cause of your gynecomastia, which could be medications, hormonal changes, or heredity. If your gynecomastia is caused by medications, you may be able to reduce the size of your breasts by discussing an alternative medication with your primary physician.
For patients who are good candidates for surgery, Dr. Pollard will discuss the various options that are available to you. Surgery for gynecomastia aims to reduce the size of the breasts while enhancing the natural, masculine contours.
