Male Breast Reduction
What Is Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
Your first step to learn how correction of gynecomastia can improve the appearance of your upper body and produce a more masculine chest contour is a consultation with Dr. Rast, one of the best 5-star rated plastic surgeons in Kansas City.
Male breast reduction surgery, also known as a correction of gynecomastia, removes excess breast fat, skin, and glandular tissue to help you achieve a chest appearance that’s harmonious with your body. This results in a more masculine chest contour. Gynecomastia may be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, disease, or the use of certain drugs. Contrary to popular belief, gynecomastia is not usually a direct result of excess fat.
Gynecomastia can impair your ability to lead both an active and confident life. Breast reduction surgery for men is a highly individualized decision and should be done to improve your own emotional and physical health, not to comply with someone else’s desires.
