Gynaecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)
Gynaecomastia is the development of breasts in males and can occur in one or both breasts. Sometimes during puberty young males may develop breasts but normally over a period of 6 months the condition will disappear. It is due to the hormone level changes that happen during puberty.
Why may surgery be required?
As men age, if they have taken steroids in the past or if they become significantly overweight the condition may develop. There are also a number of other underlying reasons for the condition and Dr Milovic will discuss the possibility of these with you at your initial consultation.
Gynaecomastia can cause significant social implications such as embarrassment and loss of confidence and the gynaecomastia correction procedure to rectify the condition is called male breast reduction.
