Many people are unaware how prevalent gynecomastia is. This condition, characterized by an enlargement of male breast tissue, is generally caused during puberty when hormonal levels peak. If that person is experiencing high-level of estrogen, it could lead to breast tissue resembling a female’s. To correct this, many men opt for a male breast reduction.
A male breast reduction involves liposuction techniques for fat combined with a surgical incision to remove glandular tissue in the breast. A male breast reduction procedure is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, which means the patient can return home shortly after the surgery.
