Considering Male Breast Reduction?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of enlarged male breasts (gynecomastia), there are some things you should consider before male breast reduction.
For males under 18, you may want to wait before undergoing the procedure. Often gynecomastia can be a side effect of puberty and will resolve on its own. You will, at least, need permission of a parent or guardian to have the procedure.
You should also talk to your doctor about possible causes of gynecomastia, which can include:
- Side effect of certain medications
- Testicular cancer
- Chronic liver disease
- Thyroid disorder
If some other cause is responsible for your enlarged breasts, you should have the condition treated before getting male breast reduction.
Also for overweight patients, initiating a weight loss and exercise routine may help reduce excess skin and fat in the breast region.
