Male breast reduction is a surgical procedure used to relieve symptoms of gynecomastia, a condition that causes overdeveloped breasts in men. Gynecomastia affects up to 70 percent of boys in early to mid-puberty, and up to 65 percent among middle-aged and older men. It can be caused by heredity, hormonal changes, the use of certain drugs, or obesity. Some symptoms include enlargement of one or both breasts and nipple sensitivity. Liposuction is often employed in this procedure to loosen excess fat and expel it from the body, as well as specific excision techniques to remove any excess skin. The final results can take up to 6 months to attain, but are life long in many cases.
