Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia Newport Beach
The development of enlarged male breasts (“gynecomastia”) can occur at any age, and for a variety of reasons. While excess body weight is often associated with this occurrence, other reasons may account for it as well, such as:
- Hormonal changes
- Past drug use
Men and adolescents affected by abnormally large breasts often experience serious emotional discomfort, and many attempt to hide the condition by avoiding physical activities. Gynecomastia treatment, or “male breast reduction,” can be a solution to this unpleasant condition.
Dr. Ambe recognizes that there are several surgical methods that may be appropriate for gynecomastia treatment, including excision and liposuction. By examining several factors, he can choose the technique that is right for each individual patient. These factors include:
- Cause of their condition
- Degree of necessary correction
- Composition of breast tissue
- Patient age and general health
Dr. Ambe can discuss further procedural and recovery details with you during your pre-operative appointment.
