Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)

Also known as gynecomastia, breast reduction for men is the surgical correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts. It is a common affliction in men of all ages. It can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity conditions, disease or the use of certain medications. This condition can cause emotional stress and impair self-confidence; as a result some men may even go to the extent of avoiding certain physical activities and intimacy.
