Gynecomastia is an condition in which men develop excess breast tissue. Sometimes it can be attributed to factors such as medications, recreational drug use, weight changes, genetics or diet; however, often times, the cause is unknown.
In the instance where a cause cannot be identified, surgical treatment options are available. Male Plastic Surgery may be helpful when faced with this condition, the surgical treatment typically consists of Liposuction of the excess breast tissue through small incisions. The liposuction may be combined with surgical excision of excess skin and tissue. The incision for this procedure is well hidden along the boarder of the areola. Recuperation is minimal. Typically patients are back to their normal routine in a week and cleared from any physical restrictions after four weeks.
