Male Breast Reduction

Surgery

Gynecomastia is a medical condition in which men develop excess breast tissue. Approximately 15 percent of adult men will develop some degree of gynecomastia in their lifetime. The appearance of male breasts can have a negative impact on a person’s self-esteem. Depending on the severity of your gynecomastia, methods such as diet and exercise may not restore a leaner chest appearance. Male breast reduction surgery is used to treat men with gynecomastia and pseudogynecomastia, restoring a more masculine chest contour.


How Can Surgery Help?

Male breast reduction surgery helps relieve men of the physical and emotional effects of gynecomastia. Dr. Wilson can design a male breast reduction plan that is tailored to meet your specific needs. In addition to removing unwanted tissue, Dr. Wilson focuses on restoring a defined and masculine appearance to the chest.
