Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Why might a man need breast surgery?
Both men and women are born with breast tissue. As women get older, their breast tissue begins to develop. This normally happens when they reach puberty.
Some men may find their breast tissue also developing. When men develop excess breast tissue, it is known as gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is a relatively common condition. However, it can cause significantly negative psychological effects including anxiety, embarrassment, and loss of self-esteem.
Some men feel that excess breast tissue compromises their masculinity. As a result, many sufferers of gynecomastia find themselves avoiding situations where they may need to be bare-chested.
Are you a man suffering from gynecomastia? You don’t need to suffer any longer. Dr. Malcolm Lesavoy, a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience and a renowned reputation, offers male breast surgery to patients in the Beverly Hills area.
Aging has also been attributed to excess male breast tissue. This is because when testosterone levels begin to decline, collagen production slows, saggy skin and increased weight. Each of these factors can contribute towards the appearance of enlarged breast tissue.
Some prescription medications have been linked to gynecomastia, including those used to treat heartburn, stomach ulcers, fungal infections and high blood pressure. If your excess breast tissue is a result of a medication you are taking, you should speak to your doctor to see what alternatives may be available.
