Gynecomastia, the condition of having an overabundance of tissue in the male chest, can make a man feel abnormal and embarrassed. Dealing with the resulting body issues may be a lifelong task. To correct this problem before it gets to this point, patients come in for male breast surgery.
Gynecomastia can affect men of any age. It is often only a temporary condition when it comes to babies and teens. In babies, excess tissue in the chest region will reduce in around six months. In teens, excess tissue can remain for up to two years before the condition resolves itself.
For those patients who are out of their teens and have gynecomastia, male breast surgery may be the only solution. During this, the excess tissue is removed from the body, either through liposuction, surgical excision, or a combination of the two techniques.
