What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia refers to a condition in which the male breasts enlarge abnormally. There are many reasons why gynecomastia develops, these reasons range from the genetic to the pharmacological to environmental. Changes in weight and body type, hormone imbalances and even the use of prescription medications are common reasons why some men may be prone to over development of the breasts.
The condition can occur at any age, and may cause anxiety and a great deal of self-consciousness. Men with this condition often feel ashamed of their bodies and are reluctant to take off their shirts at the beach or around the pool.
What is Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
Gynecomastia is corrected using a surgical procedure commonly called male breast reduction surgery. The surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Institute (PSI) of Miami use a number of techniques to safely and accurately reverse the effects of over developed breasts in men. These procedures range from liposuction to remove excess fat, to the removal of unnecessary breast tissue.
All procedures are performed through the smallest possible incisions resulting in scars that are nearly impossible to detect. Recovery is quick, with little or no pain. And any pain is easily controlled with prescribed medication. Most male breast reduction patients recover quickly and resume their normal activities within just a few days.
