What Is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a medical condition characterized by an enlarged male breast. Though not often discussed, this is a common condition and many men suffering from gynecomastia are very self-conscious of their appearance. There is often no known cause for gynecomastia though it has been associated with some medical conditions and the use of certain drugs.
Gynecomastia Risk Factors
Gynecomastia is a condition affecting males only giving them enlarged male breasts. This condition can start in adolescence and may persist or can develop in an older man due to steroid abuse, weight gain, hormonal imbalance, or a side effect of certain medications.
Candidates for Male Breast Reduction
Fortunately, this common condition in the adolescent age group generally resolves in two years. However, if this condition continues it causes stress as well as embarrassment, causing patients to seek treatment. When working with Dr. Farella, patients will feel at ease and comfortable to discuss the right treatment for their condition. Male breasts can be reduced with the help of liposuction as well as surgical removal of the breasts. Most of the time this can be performed through limited incisions that leave inconspicuous scars.

Recovering from Male Breast Reduction Surgery
During your recovery period, a special garment will need to be worn around the chest to help manage swelling and provide additional support. Swelling, bruising, and some discomfort is to be expected following male breast reduction, but will subside over the coming weeks. Over the counter medication can be used to address any pain or discomfort. Most patients are able to resume a majority of their normal activity after a week or two or recovery. Strenuous activity will need to be avoided for at least 4 to 6 weeks.
The Cost of Male Breast Reduction
