Gynecomastia is unwanted or excess breast development in males. This disorder is far more common than people think and can cause patients to be self-conscious or lack confidence in their appearance.
Surgery for gynecomastia is a short outpatient procedure where the excess fat and breast tissue around the nipple is removed through liposuction or direct excision. The scars are hidden around the areola. Recovery usually takes 2-4 weeks and the improvements are permanent.
Gynecomastia patients typically report improved body image and self-confidence following their procedure.
