Gynecomastia — Houston Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia is a condition among men wherein the breast tissue has become enlarged. It can appear in males of any age, but the vast majority of cases occur during puberty, while the body is being flooded with hormones.
Overdeveloped male breast tissue can produce unwanted and even embarrassing consequences for many men, especially during adolescence. Male breast reduction is a surgical procedure offered by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Donna Rich to correct gynecomastia.
Male breast reduction is a procedure designed to surgically remove excess tissue and fat from the breasts. To do this, Dr. Rich utilizes incisions around the nipple-areolar complex. The specifics of the procedure vary depending on the nature and extent of the patient’s gynecomastia.
In most cases, the procedure involves a combination of both surgical scalpel-based removal and liposuction. The duration of the surgery is generally about one to two hours.
