The Art Behind Plastic Surgery

Seattle Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction)

Men with gynecomastia (overdeveloped breasts) may benefit from male breast reduction surgery. The procedure removes excess fat and/or glandular tissue and sometimes excess skin from the breasts so that the chest has a more masculine contour. The best candidates for surgery are men with firm, elastic skin. Heavy users of alcohol, marijuana or anabolic steroids are generally not considered good candidates for surgery. These drugs may cause gynecomastia. So discontinuing their use may resolve the problem without the need for surgery. Likewise, overweight men may find that normalizing weight will reduce breast fullness.
