Male Breast Reduction
While it may be difficult for men to address, having abnormally large breasts is typically the result of a relatively common condition called gynecomastia. Still, it is a cause for anxiety for thousands of men each day. It is generally caused by a hormone imbalance, but there may be other factors involved in the condition.
Gynecomastia linked to medication usage or a medical condition may go away on its own, but surgery may be necessary if:
- Stopping/changing medications hasn’t eliminated the condition.
- You are an adult who has struggled for more than a year with the condition.
- The condition has not gone away after a change in diet/lifestyle.
- There is a notable difference in the size between the left and right breast (asymmetry)
Elevare MD believes that you shouldn’t feel like you have to struggle with this condition for the rest of your life. We employ the latest techniques including direction excision and liposuction to provide to a dramatic correction.
