Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia in Connecticut with Dr. Wilfred Brown

A male breast reduction treats gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts that are resistant to diet and exercise can cause both physical and social discomfort.

The goal of gynecomastia treatment is to reduce breast size in men who are embarrassed by overly large breasts. Gynecomastia surgery restores a normal male breast contour and corrects deformities of the breast, nipple or areola (the pigmented area surrounding the nipple).

Gynecomastia is usually not caused by any serious medical problems; in fact, its cause is rarely identified. However, because there are some medical problems that do cause gynecomastia, Dr. Brown will rule these out prior to treatment.

There are various surgical techniques for gynecomastia treatment, which include liposuction, excision (surgical removal of tissue) or a combination of both approaches.

Maintaining a stable weight will ensure that your improved chest contour will be long-lasting. Weight gain following this surgery may compromise results.
