Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia is the technical term for male breasts.  Male breast over development has been linked with certain drugs and medical problems, however there is no known cause in the vast majority of cases.  Also as men age fat becomes more prominent in the breast area. 

 If you feel self-conscious about your appearance in this area, breast-reduction surgery can help. This procedure removes fat and breast tissue and in the extreme case excess skin may need to be removed. Male breast reduction makes the chest  flatter, firmer, and produces a better contour. 

Carefully following Dr. Simmonds' instructions, before and after surgery, minimize  risks.  As with any surgery, Dr. Simmond’s will review risks and benefits with you. 

The incision is made in an inconspicuous location usually on the edge of the areola. Dr. Simmonds will excise most or all of the breast tissue depending on what is needed.   Dr. Simmonds also does liposuction of this area as well. 

If your prominent breasts bother you then male breast reduction surgery may be right for you.
