Treat the Effects of Gynaecomastia with Our Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Gynaecomastia is a medical condition that is caused by a hormonal imbalance in the male body. This condition causes protruding breasts and is more common than most would recon. Our male breast reduction surgery can reduce the effects by removing the fat deposits underneath the skin tissue that is causing the swelling in the first place.
What is Gynaecomastia?
As a medical condition, gynecomastia causes enlargement of male breast tissue as a result of a hormonal imbalance. During puberty, certain hormonal surges can lead to the growth of male breast tissue. In some cases, the breast tissue will shrink after going through puberty. However, in the majority of cases, the breasts will remain enlarged.
Asymptomatic gynecomastia is prevalent in about 60% to 90% of children, 50% to 60% in adolescents, and up to 70% in men. Puberty, excessive weight gain, anabolic steroids, certain drugs, and a variety of medication that could cause the breast tissue to enlarge are the most frequent causes of gynecomastia.
Gynecomastia affects both breasts, with the effect most prominent on the breast tissue that is underneath the nipple-areolar complex. This area should have a palpable, tender, firm, mobile, disc-like mound of tissue. If these masses are hard and associated with skin or nipple discharge, we recommend consulting a medical professional about the possibility of cancer.
