Male Breast Reduction – Gynecomastia – Pennsylvania
Male breast reduction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that treats gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is the appearance of abnormally large breasts in males. Though the condition is not known to be a danger to health, many males who deal with this struggle with body image and other psychological distress. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ryan Hoffman to discuss your concerns.
Male breast reduction may involve incisions around the nipple-areola complex or liposuction, depending on the extent of reduction desired. For gynecomastia resulting from excess fatty tissue, liposuction is generally recommended. Typically with liposuction, a thin hollow tube called a cannula is used to loosen then suction out excess fat via an attached vacuum.
