For women, an increase in breast size is usually considered a blessing; however, for men, it is the opposite. Enlarged breasts on a man can be devastating to one’s self-image and confidence, and may inhibit interactions with others, especially in environments where going bare-chested is the norm, such as at the beach, in the locker room or at the pool.
Men suffering from an endocrine system disorder called gynecomastia will experience an increase in the breast tissue, giving the man the appearance of breasts.
It can occur because of a hormone imbalance and sometimes is not reversible without surgical intervention.
While the condition of “woman-like” breasts is undesirable, it is actually quite common among men and can be easily and effectively treated through Dr. Kiran Gill's male breast reduction. Dr. Gill offers gynecomastia treatment at her practice for patients that want to maintain a more masculine figure.
Many men with this condition find it difficult to hide the chest area when they start to develop female-looking breasts. Since it is usually caused by a hormonal imbalance, losing weight or working out to build the chest muscles won’t help much.
In many cases, Dr. Gill's male breast reduction may be the best way to restore your natural shape and feel more confident about your body.
Common advantages of male breast reduction include:
