Male Breast Reduction for Gynecomastia Patients

About half of all men today have gynecomastia — enlargement of one or both breasts. Male breast enlargement can be caused by drugs such as anti-depressants, blood-pressure medicine, marijuana, steroids, and others. Gynecomastia may not be improved with diet and exercise. The male breast reduction procedure can be accomplished with either a scalpel or liposuction, depending on the patient's anatomical needs.
