Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)

Male breast reduction surgery or gynecomastia surgery is indicated to reduce the size of a man's breast tissue. Men have breast tissue similar to women, usually much less breast tissue and it is less sensitive to the body's hormones. It is relatively common that young teenage men going through puberty will develop some growth of their breast tissue, or gynecomastia.
