Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia is the medical term for abnormally enlarged breasts in a male. This is not uncommon in adolescents, young men and even older gentlemen. In the younger patient it can be a great source of embarrassment and social disruption, especially with sports activities or changing in the locker room. Our plastic surgeon feels that the male breast correction needs to ideally have invisible scars since the male chest is intended to be exposed, unlike that of the typical female patient. Therefore the scars should, always try to remain around the areola exclusively, and not extend into the remainder of the breast or chest as it would typically do in female breast reduction surgery.
