A male breast reduction is a plastic surgery that reduces the size of the male breast. In most cases, this enlargement of the male breasts is caused by a condition known as gynecomastia. The term “gynecomastia” is another term for the male breast reduction surgery. What are the symptoms of gynecomastia?
The condition known as gynecomastia can have a variety of symptoms. The most common symptom of gynecomastia is a swelling or enlargement of breast tissue in men. This enlargement is often the only symptom of the condition, however, it can cause men to feel self conscious about their chest.
Occasionally, men with gynecomastia may experience other symptoms such as tenderness, pain, or discharge from one or both nipples. Male breast reduction surgery will often alleviate these symptoms, although depending on the cause of gynecomastia, other management may be required.
Gynecomastia surgery can lead to improved self esteem and treat the symptoms of gynecomastia. Dr. Craig Jonov at Seattle Plastic Surgery performs many male breast reduction surgeries. To schedule a consultation, call us at 206-324-1120 or contact us online
