What Is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is characterized by enlarged male breast tissue. The exact cause of gynecomastia is unknown, but several factors have been linked to the development of male breast tissue, including certain drugs and medical conditions. It is not uncommon for men with gynecomastia to experience physical discomfort in the form of irritation, rashes or chafing. They may also feel embarrassed or self-conscious when wearing form-fitting clothing or going shirtless in public spaces.

There is only one proven solution to gynecomastia: male breast reduction surgery. Designed to remove excess skin and tissue, male breast reduction can not only restore a more masculine appearance, but also help transform the way men feel about themselves.

About Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Male breast reduction is performed on an outpatient basis, usually under general anesthesia. Dr. Horvath begins the procedure by creating an incision around the areola so he can remove excess glandular tissue and skin. He may also reduce oversized areolas. If necessary, the surgeon will create an additional incision to remove fatty deposits via liposuction techniques. To complete the surgery, Dr. Horvath will tighten the remaining skin over the flatter and firmer chest.
