Breast Reduction for Men – Plastic Surgery – Reno and Lake Tahoe, Nevada
Gynecomastia is the condition of overdeveloped breast tissue in men. It can be caused by hormonal changes, heredity, or some medications. Enlarged male breasts are actually very common, a condition that affects 40 to 60 percent of the male population. The emotional toll it takes on a man can be very great. Just going to the local pool for a swim can cause understandable anxiety.
A male breast reduction procedure with Northern Nevada plastic surgeon Dr. James E. Murphy can give you a firmer, flatter, more contoured chest, increase your self-confidence, and reaffirm your masculinity. By surgically removing the excess fat, glandular tissue, and/or skin, you can give yourself the freedom to live an active and self-confident life.
Schedule a consultation to ask your surgeon whether a male gynecomastia reduction procedure may be right for you. Be prepared to ask questions about the surgeon’s experience as well as about the procedure.
