Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction) in Boca Raton at Farber Plastic Surgery
Enlarged male breasts aren’t always the result of being overweight or out of shape. A condition known as gynecomastia may actually be to blame, and you may be surprised to know that almost half of all men have this condition to some degree. Regardless of why you have enlarged breasts, you just want them gone.
What Is Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction)?
Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction, is a procedure that removes excess breast tissue and fat, giving you a more toned, masculine chest that people will notice for the right reasons. So throw out all those baggy sweatshirts and over-sized t-shirts and get ready for the beach!
Is Gynecomastia Surgery Right for Me?
Dr. Farber recommends male breast reduction for patients who are over the age of 18, which is when a man’s body is generally considered fully developed. Gynecomastia can also be caused by puberty and may resolve on its own as a boy ages. The procedure requires the use of general anesthesia, so you need to be in good general health for this and any other surgical procedure.
