While many people think only women can benefit from breast reduction surgery, there are men and even certain children who can benefit from the surgical procedure as well.When a man at any age develops excess tissue in their pectoral muscles, it can give the appearance that they are developing breasts. While such tissue development can cause isolated health issues, in most cases the issues that arise are primarily emotional. The thought, or experience, of developing breasts can be a traumatic one for any male, young or old.

In order to remove the excess tissue, a surgical procedure called gynecomastia surgery is done. During this procedure, the surgeon uses a number of different surgical methods, including liposuction and excision, to return the chest back to its normal shape.In general, this particular procedure only takes a few hours to complete, and the increased self-confidence, lowered health risks, and ability to engage in more physical activities will be permanent.

If you or a loved one feels gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction) may be right for you, we advise you to consult with one of the highly skilled surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Dayton.
